Bousoño, Carlos

▪ Spanish poet and critic
born May 9, 1923, Boal, Spain

      Spanish poet and critic, a leading theorist of Hispanic literature.

      Bousoño studied literature and philosophy in Madrid and in 1945 published his first volume of poetry, Subida al amor (“Ascent to Love”), which deals with struggles for religious faith. In 1946 he went to Mexico and then to the United States to teach literature at Wellesley College (Massachusetts). In 1948 he returned to Spain and took a doctorate at the University of Madrid, where he taught courses on poetry. Thereafter he combined writing and teaching.

      His later works include Noche del sentido (1957; “Night of Feeling”), which brings together romantic views and religious ideas; Invasión de la realidad (1962; “Invasion of Reality”); Oda en la ceniza (1967; “Ode on the Ashes”); Selección de mis versos (1980); and Metáfora del desafuero (1988; “Metaphor of Violence”). In an introduction to an anthology of his poems (Antología Poética) published in 1976, he discussed his poetic concern with the splendour and the emptiness that the world offers. Bousoño's Teoría de la expresión poética (1952, rev. ed. 1966; “Theory of Poetic Expression”) analyzed poetic devices and sought general rules and a scientific basis for the study of poetry. It is his major critical work and received the Spanish Academy's Fastenrath Prize.
