Far from the romantic exaltations, it is the nudity, the restraint, the delicate intimacy, the balance between passion and intelligence, the predominance of suggestions, the recreation of daily experiences after a period of sedimentation, that make Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer ( 1836-1870) the most timeless poet of the entire Spanish 19th century and explain his decisive influence on numerous later poets.
