This book is not intended to elaborate a simple biography, nor to offer a critical study of Salinas; but to analyze a man to better understand his creations. Given that Don Pedro believes life and literature are inseparable, to read him is to show the "other," hidden behind the classic halo of the poetic group of 27. He has allowed himself to be an intellectual, to present himself through his writings and correspondence, where he confesses his internal division, fears, sense of guilt, superstitious mood, emotional dependence, fear of death, and lack of esteem.
