Cabanillas and Royal Academy
In 1920, Ramón Cabanillas Enriquez joined the Galician Royal Academy with Antonio Rey Soto.
His speech “A Saudade nos Poetas Galegos” was elected on August 31 in Mondariz and was answered by the secretary of the Academy Mr. Eladio Rodriguez Gonzalez.
Nine years later he moved to Madrid, and Cabanillas was appointed “member of the Royal Spanish Academy of Language” with Armando Cotarelo. The May 26, he reads his entry speech “Un Somero Recuerdo de la Vida y Obra de Eduardo Pondal” answered by the Marquis de Figueroa Mr. Juan Armada y Losada.
Ramón Cabanillas wrote mainly poetry, however, the qualitative and quantitative richness that proves it, made him an artist without limitations.
Different themes (religious, loving, social) and different styles (poetry, dramatic, lyrical, and prose) are evident in his masterful work that begins in Habana in 1913 with No Desterro and it will continue until the end of his days with gems like: Vento Mareiro (1915), Da Terra Asoballada (1917), O Bendito San Amaro (1926), Na Noite Estrelecida (1926), A Rosa de Cen Follas (1927), Camiños No Tempo (1949), Da Miña Zanfona (1954), Versos de Alleas Terras e Tempos Idos(1955) y Samos (1958).
