Juan Ramón Jiménez - Biographical
Juan Ramón Jiménez (1881-1958) belonged to the gang of writers who, within the wake of Spain's lack of her colonies to the USA (1898), staged a literary revival. The chief of this crew of modernistas, as they referred to as themselves, Rubén Darío, helped Juan Ramón to submit Almas de violeta (Souls of Violet), 1900, his first quantity of poetry. The years among 1905 to 1912 Ramón Jiménez spent at his birthplace, Moguer, the place he wrote Elejías puras (Pure Elegies), 1908, l. a. soledad sonora (Sonorous Solitude), 1911, and Poemas mágicos y dolientes (Magic Poems of Sorrow), 1911. His early poetry was once encouraged by means of German Romanticism and French Symbolism. it truly is strongly visible and ruled via the colors yellow and eco-friendly. His later kind, decisive, officially ascetic, and ruled through white, emerges within the poetic prose of his tender Platero y yo (Platero and I), 1914, and is absolutely built in Diario de un poeta recién casado (Diary of a Newly-Wed Poet), 1917, written in the course of a visit to the USA, in addition to in Eternidades (Eternities), 1918, Piedra y cielo (Stone and Sky), 1919, Poesía (Poetry), 1923, and Belleza (Beauty), 1923. within the twenties, Ramón Jiménez turned the said grasp of the recent iteration of poets. He used to be lively as a critic in addition to an editor of literary journals. In 1930 he retired to Seville to commit himself to the revision of his prior paintings. Six years later, because the results of the Spanish Civil battle, he left Spain for Puerto Rico and Cuba. He remained in Cuba for 3 years and, in 1939, went to the us, which grew to become his place of dwelling until eventually 1951, while he moved certainly to Puerto Rico. in the course of those years Juan Ramón taught at a number of universities and released Españoles de tres mundos (Spaniards of 3 Worlds), 1942, a publication of prose pix, and a number of other collections of poems, between them Voces de mi copla (Voices of My Song), 1945, and Animal de fondo (Animal of Depth).

«I settle for with gratitude the undeserved honour which this illustrious Swedish Academy has noticeable healthy to bestow upon me. Besieged by means of sorrow and illness, i have to stay in Puerto Rico, not able to take part without delay within the solemnities. And so you can have the residing testimony of my very own intimate emotions accrued in daily organization of friendship firmly validated during this land of Puerto Rico, i've got requested Rector Jaime Benitez of its collage, the place i'm a member of the college, to be my own consultant prior to you in all ceremonies attached with the Nobel Prize awards of 1956.»

I have came across such affection for Juan Ramón Jiménez and such realizing for his works that I belief you are going to excuse me if I unmarried out for detailed thank you one amongst you so clever and penetrating that i'm convinced all others might be completely satisfied to be famous in him. I check with your personal nice poet Hjalmar Gullberg, whose presentation this afternoon we will never forget and whose rendition of Juan Ramón Jiménez' poetry has delivered to the Scandinavian humans the transparent purity of our Andalusian master.

Juan Ramón Jiménez has requested me additionally to assert this: «My spouse Zenobia is the genuine winner of this Prize. Her companionship, her aid, her thought made, for 40 years, my paintings attainable. this present day, with out her, i'm desolate and helpless.»

I have heard from the trembling lips of Juan Ramón Jiménez the most touching expressions of melancholy. For Juan Ramón is this kind of poet that his each be aware displays his personal inner nation. We fervently wish that sometime his sorrow can be expressed in writing and that the reminiscence of Zenobia will offer renewed and eternal thought to that fab grasp of Hispanic letters, Juan Ramón Jiménez, whom you have got honoured so signally today.

Prior to the speech, R. Granit, Member of the Royal Academy of Sciences, made the next comments concerning the Spanish poet: «Juan Ramón has been referred to as a poet for poets, however the layman can strategy him if keen first to partake passively of the sheer visible fantastic thing about his panorama, gorgeous Andalusia, its birds, its plants, pomegranates, and oranges. as soon as within his international, by way of leisurely interpreting and rereading, one steadily awakens to a brand new «living insight» into it, refreshed by way of the intensity and richness of a unprecedented poetical mind's eye. whereas doing so I recalled a talk among the painter Degas and the poet Mallarmé, as comparable by way of Paul Valéry. Degas, suffering from a sonnet, complained of the problems, and at last exclaimed: ‹And but i don't lack ideas...› Mallarmé with nice mildness answered: ‹But Degas, one doesn't create poetry with principles. One does it with words.› If ever there was encouraged use of phrases, it truly is in Juan Ramón Jiménez' poetry, and during this experience he's a poet for poets. this can be most likely additionally explanation why, in the complete Spanish-speaking international, he's considered as the trainer and master.

The literary awards may perhaps contain judgements tougher than the medical ones. but we should always be thankful to the founder for having integrated a literary Prize in his will. It provides dignity to the opposite awards and to the act itself; it emphasizes the human and cultural aspect which the 2 worlds of inventive mind's eye have in universal; and maybe, in any case, it expresses deeper insights than scientists can ever achieve.»
