Example text

Pedro Salinas, Guillen's contemporary and good friend, provides us with an admirable answer when he says: IN HUMBLE CONFORMITY 35 The active principles at work in Guillen's poetry are these: love for all, love for things, joy for the fact that they exist and permit us to enjoy them, and gratitude for their existence. 22 In other words, I would summarize the opinion of some critics by saying that the most impressive thing about Guillen is his characteristic manner of poetically being in the midst of things, that is to say, his special way of sensing them as wondrous revelations of a living totality.

In fact, he goes even further, as the title here suggests, for he sees it as "Culmination". How could one possibly account for this? The explanation is simple: much more than sheer remembering is involved, for the genuine abidingness of what has been is playing a role too. This is how he brings this point home to us in "Clover-8", when he speaks of his life with his beloved: "We were truth. And this did abide" (p. 113). It is only when he is confronted with his wife's death that the mystery is resolved.

In his poem "Love and Music", Guillen summarizes this entire process as an interplay of three tempi and three corresponding times: 35 "[Every being that] fulfills its promise/ an alliance it forms/ with that future borne by the present" (p. 105). A present such as this, laden as it is with an operative past, is quite different from the one we found characterized before as the accomplished moment of perfection. We are not confronted now with an eternal dimension alien to time, but with one which IN HUMBLE CONFORMITY 43 is being constituted in the midst and by means of time.
