Alberti is a member of that highly inventive group of Spanish poets which came to be called the "Generation of 1927" and includes Federico Garcia Lorca, Jorge Guillen, Luis Cernuda, Pedro Salinas, Vicente Aleixandre, Miguel Hernandez and Gerardo Diego. In April 1977, after almost four decades of exile, with Franco dead and a new beginning for democracy in Spain, Alberti returned to his homeland.About the Author:
