José Zorrilla, "trovador romantico" ? : Etude de ses Leyendas Tradicionales

Abstract : J. Zorrilla is a Spanish poet who declared himself assigned by God with a moral and patriotic mission and contrived legends written in verse from 1837 to 1845 ; they are set in Spain between the 9th century and 1715. In 1884 he had a collection published which included thirteen of these legends entitled Leyendas Tradicionales. Claiming the heritage of the poetry of troubadours J. Zorrilla's narratives take root in spanish medieval culture. Yet he also integrated elements from the poetry of the Golden Age and of the romantic era. J. Zorrilla's writings aimed at obtaining his father's forgiveness, as he didn't share his admiration for Carlism and got no recognition from him for being a writer. Torn between several periods (the Middle Ages, the Golden Age and the 19th century), between two political ideals (Carlism and Liberalism) and two poetical approaches (the Gaya Cienca and Romanticism), J. Zorrilla became an ambiguous and original poet who greatly influenced generations of writers.
