He recorded this transatlantic experience in an intimate diary, an intense work of highly symbolic poetry, which was to dramatically change the landscape of twentieth-century Hispanic lyric poetry.". "The Diary is an innovative and complex work of both prose and poetry. It stands among the first works of prose in the Spanish language to capture the images and urban landscapes of New York City, revealing as well surprising degrees of modernity and social sensitivity. It is equally innovative in its cultivation of free verse, and historically important for introducing, for the first time in Spanish literature, a new mode of poetic composition."--BOOK JACKET.
