José Hierro,

“Magical Poet”, ABC, May 29th, 1993, p. 76

[…] To me, he is one of the greatest poets, not only from the Generation of the 1950s, but one of the most important Spanish poets after the Generation of 1927. He is a magical poet who gives us reality in its transfigured form. He is one of my favorite poets. Speaking about his poetry is like speaking about smoke or light. It is something impalpable.
