Nervo had read widely, and several English and French prose writers influenced his fiction. Almas que pasan includes several of his early short stories, first published in newspapers. Some of these stories advanced a sort of fantastic atmosphere that later became important in the twentieth-century Spanish American short narrative genre.
His next collection of poems, Los jardines interiores The Inner Gardens, also appeared at that time and was well received. This book of poetry, along with En voz baja In a Low Voice, , initiates what critics have defined as the second stage of Nervo's writing. In both of these books Nervo searches for transcendent beauty in an attempt to find a deeper spiritual significance. These collections confirm his interest in the esoteric and in the idea of pantheism.
Until that point, some of his poems were heavily influenced by the Symbolist poets and subsequently dwelled on philosophy, mysticism, and even melancholy. Nervo deviated from any fixed literary persuasion and concentrated even more on his personal quest for spirituality.
He questioned the tenets of Christianity by exploring the renunciation of the material world advocated by Hindu and Buddhist religions. After studying philosophy and mysticism, Nervo hoped to better understand both natural and supernatural existence. Nervo's fame was increasing both inside and outside of Mexico, and in he entered the diplomatic service as a secretary of the Mexican Embassy and traveled to Madrid, where he lived until In fact, he was the Spanish American modernista author who lived for the longest period of time in Spain.
While in Madrid, Nervo was able to write some of the most representative poetry books of the movement, and he had the opportunity to meet with the most prominent Spanish authors. As a literary critic he published Juana de Asbaje Juana de Asbaje, , a study of the great poet nun of seventeenth-century Mexico. After several comfortable years in Madrid, Nervo suffered the loss of his lover Dailliez, of whom so little is known, in That episode had a profound effect on Nervo's work.
The great pain after her death made Nervo return to the idea of a divine God, and all his works after this date carry a religious connotation.
Both books represent a confession of the poet's anguish at her death, the recognition of his own inexorable fate, and finally the search for serenity. These poems also reveal what critics recognize as an individual and mature style exploring the possibilities of transcendence. These books by Nervo can also be linked to other authors such as the Spanish Miguel de Unamuno, often not included in the modernista canon, but with whom he shared a similar concern about the question of God. Contrary to Unamuno's anguish, however, Nervo's search always expressed a deep affirmation of God's existence, and his poetry can be read as one of the most vivid religious and spiritual pursuits in all Hispanic modernismo.
Nervo enjoyed a period of great fame. He was often called a mystic; but more than that, he was a man who had an immense desire to believe and a willingness to understand the secret of the world. He had previously stated that he did not belong to any particular school because as an artist he was independent and free. In the long debate over modernismo , Nervo defined the aesthetics of this movement as an interior and individual art.
He believed there had only been two literary trends: those authors who see outside, and those who see inside. The E-mail Address es field is required. Please enter recipient e-mail address es.
