Juan José Domenchina

Domenchina, Juan José (hwän hōsāˈ dōmānchēˈnä) [key], 1898–1959, Spanish poet and critic, b. Madrid. He was active in the transition from modernismo to the "new poetry." Such early volumes as Del poema eterno [from the eternal poem] (1917) and La corporeidad de lo abstracto [the substance of the abstract] (1929) are characteristic of his intellectual, abstract, and baroque form of expression. His later poetry Dédalo [Daedalus] (1932), Margen [the edge] (1933) and La sombra desterrada [the exiled shadow] (1949–50) possesses a more human, anguished tone. He died in Mexico, where he had lived in exile since 1939.
