The son of a military man, Cernuda received a strict education as a child, and then studied law at the University of Seville, where he met the poet and literature professor Pedro Salinas. In , after his mother died, Cernuda left his hometown, with which he had all his life an intense love-hate relationship.
He briefly moved to Madrid, where h Luis Cernuda was a Spanish poet and literary critic. He briefly moved to Madrid, where he quickly became part of the literary scene. However, his detached, timid and morose character, his search of perfection frequently made him lose friendships and popularity.
His mentor and former professor Salinas arranged for him to take a lectureship for a year at the University of Toulouse. From June until Cernuda lived in Madrid and participated actively in the literary and cultural scene of the Spanish capital.
Cernuda collaborated with many organisations working to support a more liberal and tolerant Spain. During the Spanish Civil War a friend secured him a position as teacher in Cranleigh School, where he taught Spanish Language and literature. Later on, moved by his sentimental relationships, he would move to Mexico, where he died. The central concerns of this poet are evident in the title of his life's major opus: La realidad y el deseo "Reality and Desire". He published his first collection of verse, Perfil del aire "Air's profile" , in Several books followed, and he collected new and already published poetry under this title in Subsequent editions would include new poetry as new books inside La realidad y el deseo.
Expanded on almost until his death in , in this work the poet explores desire, love, subject, object, history and sexuality in poems which draw influences from romanticism, classicism, and the surrealist avant-garde.
Besides verse, he also published a collection of reminiscent prose poems, 'Ocnos', about his childhood in Seville. He broke new ground with Los Placeres Prohibidos "Forbidden Pleasures" , an avant-garde work in which the poet used surrealism to explore his sexuality. During his British period he became deeply familiar with English poetry, which he would admire for its containment and lack of superfluous artifice and paraphernalia.
He would also translate several poems and plays into Spanish. He would comment that translating Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida made him intensely happy. Or, at least, unlike other gay poets at the time, in his poetry he was never ambiguous about the fact that the objects of his desire and love were men. One of the most influential poets in contemporary Spanish poetry, he is definitely a crucial ground-breaking figure for homosexual writing in Spanish.
