Gerardo Diego

Diego, Gerardo (hārärˈdō dyāˈgō) [key], 1896–1987, Spanish poet, b. Santander. Although he embraced many new poetic credos, his poetry is classified into two styles. His traditional poetry of real and sentimental experiences includes Soria (1923) and Versos humanos [human verses] (1925). A second style, called creationism, produced more dehumanized poetry like Imagen [image] (1922) and Manual de espumas [manual of foam] (1924). A synthesis of both styles is seen in Alondra de verdad [the lark of truth] (1941).
