Эрос на поле боя: поэзия Луиса Сернуды времен гражданской войны в Испании
During Spanish Civil War, Luis Cernuda, a friend of García Lorca and a poet, known by his male-male erotic poetry, remained a Republican. In 1937, the Second International Congress of Writers for the Defense of Culture was held. Organizers offered to their guests an anthology, “Poetas en la España leal”, a clearly ideological initiative. The paper suggests revealing perspective on two antiwar Cernuda’s poems included in the book. ‘Elegía española’ corresponds to the tradition of “political poetry”, but ‘Elegía a la luna de España’ shows how pacifist meditation on the Eternity, expressed in a mythological mode, emerges from homoerotic images, intrinsic for Cernuda’s poetry.
