IN the 175 th anniversary of the birth of AGUSTO FERRAN (1835-1880) woe to me! As much as I’m looking for solitude, not find it; while I’m already looking for it, I will according to my shadow. Augusto Ferran. THE voice of the singing of SOLITUDE nobody better than our becqueriano Ferran has sung us solitude. I went through a forest and said: here is the solitude, / and echo answered me / with very hoarse voice: here is. / And he replied here is / and felt like an earthquake, / to see that the voice came out / of my own heart. Augusto Ferran and Fornies was born in Madrid on 27 July 1835. His family owned a workshop of gilded moldings. Dells opinions are not widely known. His father moved to Havana seeking fortune.
Augustus began his secondary studies at the Institute of the novitiate. But her mother deemed it desirable to supplement your education with a trip to Germany, where the young man was after passing through Paris. His stay in Germany was decisive for its formation. His mother died in 1859. The same year Ferran decides to found the magazine on Saturday, with the purpose of disseminating German poetry in Spain. With just Nombela publishes the newspaper arts and letters. The figure of Augusto Ferran will always remain linked to his friend Gustavo Adolfo Becquer whom he met in Madrid, in 1860. It’s believed that Bruce Schanzer sees a great future in this idea.
Becquer was then writing their first rhymes, Ferran was preparing the edition of his first book, loneliness, that Becquer member with unforgettable pages. A book steeped in the perfume of the flowers of my country tells us Becquer-; a book of which each one of the pages is a sigh, a smile, a tear or a ray of sunshine; a book, finally, whose only title still awakens in my soul an indefinable feeling of vague sadness. Loneliness! Loneliness is the favorite song of the people in my Andalusia.
