Each of these sonnets, written in the early 30s, is written to a friend, relative or acquaintance of Rosa Chacel's, and is a critical commentary on that person's life circumstances. A prescription for action is containedin the tercets. Included among these are luminaries such as Pablo Neruda and Nikos Kazantzakis. THe sonnets' most unique feature is their deliberatly cryptic nature: each poem is an erudite riddle. without through and ardous investigation of a term's symbolic, intertextual and linguistic complexity, the readers understanding of the sonnets is hindered. This guide decodes their formal complexity, investigating form, imagery, language and themes.
