Gustavo Adolfo Becquer

Author Code: SGAB

Born: Feb. 17, 1836 - Seville, Spain

Died: Dec. 22, 1870 - Toledo, Spain

Educated at the College of San Telmo, Becquer showed literary talent at an early age. The orphaned son of an artist, he also displayed artistic talent. While still at school he collaborated with his friend Narcisco Campillo on writing and presenting a play, Los Conjurados. He went to Madrid in 1854 and a friend , and future biographer, Ranon Correa, helped him to publish his first story, El Caudillo de las Manos Rojas. In 1857, he edited and illustrated a series on churches, Los Templos de Espana. From 1861 he began working for the newspaper El Contemporaneo, which he used as vehicle for his poetry and tales. Becquer suffered from ill health throughout his life and after his brother and closest friend, Valeriano, died, the shock was too much for him and he passed away only 3 months later - only 35 years old. Almost all of Becquer's works were published posthumously and included the Rimas, a collection of short lyric poems which achieved wide praise.

SGAB004 Poems
  According to His Fancy From A Log
  Ah! Do Not Say That, All its Treasure Spent
  The Air-beams Invisible Wings Unfold
  As in An Open Book
  As One Draws From A Wound the Sword
  At the Flash of A Light We Are Born
  Awake I Fear to Look
  Balmy Breezes Softly Sighing
  Because Your Eyes Are Green
  Before You I Shall Die
  Floating Veil of Misty Light
  Flying Arrow That Darts Astray
  For A Look, the World I Would Give
  From A Dark Corner of the Mind
  How Beautiful it is to See the Day
  How Often in the Dead of Night Close By
  I Am the Symbol of Passion
  I Did Not Sleep
  I Know Not What I Dreamed
  I Put the Light Aside
  I Saw You But An Instant
  If Sometimes You Feel That An Atmosphere Burning
  If, in A Book, of All Our Wrongs
  If, When the Bell-flow'rs on Your Balcony
  In the Dark Corner of the Drawing-room
  In the Imposing Nave
  Is it True That From Its Prison?
  It is Not Strange This Framework Here
  Let the Waves With Music Thrill
  The Miser Guards His Hoard
  My Life is But A Waste
  Ne'er Until Now Have I Seen Anywhere
  Night Came
  O Waves Gigantic That Roaring Break
  The Object of Your Sighs
  The Occasional Tenderness You Display
  Oe'r the Field of Battle in Bloody Dress
  Our Love Was A Tragic Farce
  Over the Deep Abysses of the Earth
  She Passed Triumphant in Her Beauty
  She Passes Mute
  She, Hiding in the Shadows
  A Sigh is But Air
  Sometimes I Meet Her Passing By
  Spirit Without A Name
  Strange Shock That Thrills Our Being
  A Tear Rose to Her Eyes
  Their Robes Ungirded
  They Gently Closed the Eyes
  Those Sombre-hued Swallows Again Will Stray
  Through All My Being Rolls A Hymn Deep-toned
  Tired by the Ball and Out of Breath
  'Tis Nothing Merely A Question of Words
  To-day Like Yesterday and Like To-day
  To-day There's A Smile on the Earth and the Skies
  Trembling Comes the Dawn At First
  Two Blood-red Tongues of Fire
  Upon Her Lap She Held An Open Book
  Upon the Keystone of A Tottering Arch
  What is Poetry?
  When From Out Our Happy Past
  When I See the Blue Horizon in the Distance Melt Away
  When Sleep Folds His Gauzy Wings
  When the Sleepless Fever Comes
  When They Related It I Felt As If
  When Within the Shadows Drear
  When You Lean on Your Bosom
  Whence Come I?
  Why Tell Me That?
  You Were the Storm
  You Wish There Were No Dregs in this Sweet Wine
  Your Eye is Blue; When Youre Laughing
