On the Banks of the Sar (En las orillas del Sar) was the last book of the Galician poet and novelist Rosalía de Castro. Published in 1884 and written entirely in Spanish, it turned out to be a collection of poems quite misunderstood due to its unconventional meter, far from the traditional poetic style.
Rosalía introduces new structures:

  • Verses of sixteen
  • and eighteen syllables
  • and links them in stanzas never used before,

which gives these compositions a precursor musicality of Modernism.
It is a simple lyrical composition, with characteristics of Romanticism and Modernism in similar proportions. Rosalía de Castro is shown here, as Azorín said, as “a precursor in metrics and ideology.”
In the collection of poems, the exploration of one’s own inner world and a pessimistic vision of life, framed all in nature and in the reality of Galicia, are expressed in a lyric of extraordinary novelty at the time. All this, together with sensitivity and imagination, places On the Banks of the Sar on the road to Modernism.
On the whole, the compositions delve into their characteristic themes: they insist on the ideas of suffering as the axis of human existence and that of death. They are hopeless poems, with an unconventional religious imagery. Sadness, loneliness, weariness, are words repeated in this book, and, along with it, the longing for God, which causes doubts.
Galicia is also present in his words. However, his vision becomes murky. He sees her beauty, but sees it stained and laments that he can no longer appreciate it.
Rosalía’s latest book is the culmination of her poetic career; Intimate, rigorous, subjective, formally risky.
