Miguel Hernández a plena luz

This new exhibition presents the remarkable life and death of the youngest member of the Generation of ‘27.

To honor Miguel Hernández in the 75th anniversary of his death, this new exhibition offers a global portrait of the famous poet from Alicante. Miguel Hernández, a plena luz includes half a hundred original pieces from the poet’s legacy, including several handwritten letters to Pablo Neruda, Juan Ramón Jiménez, Lorca and Ramón Sijé, in addition to those he sent to his wife, Josefina Manresa, mainly during the Civil War and his time in prison.

The exhibition, curated by Juan José Téllez, takes the visitor on a journey to explore the poet’s life, beginning with his childhood and literary influences, through his political commitment and times of the Civil War, and ending with his time in prison and literary and social heritage.
