In fact, the decadence of the country is felt in the meditative descriptions that the author makes of some places or even of the character of some people. The mysteries of life or even the religious feeling are other themes of a very deep book in which Machado bares his soul completely to show everything that worries or obsesses him in a very clear way.

The death of his beloved Leonor is felt in seven of the poems that make up the book. In addition, otherness and perspective give rise to exquisite and ingenious wordplay that is especially represented in the «Parables». The «Proverbs and Songs» are formally close to Eastern philosophy in their brevity and sententiousness, reminiscent at times of Japanese or Chinese poems.

In addition in the book there is a quite extensive romance called «La tierra de Alvargonzález», of narrative character in which the miseries of man are shown, in a story in which ambition and greed do not understand fraternity.

«We are victims -I thought- of a double mirage. If we look outside and try to penetrate into things, our external world loses its solidity, and ends up dissipating when we come to believe that it does not exist for itself, but for us. But, if, convinced of the intimate reality, we look within, then everything seems to us to come from outside, and it is our inner world, ourselves, that vanishes. What to do then?»

The long romance «The Land of Alvargonzález» may have originated and been inspired by real events. The hispanist Ian Gibson recounts the deep impression made on Machado by the crime perpetrated on August 20, 1908 in Carrascosa de Abajo and the subsequent trial, held in the Provincial Court of Soria on March 15, 1909. It is known that this event inspired Machado’s poem «Un criminal» (CVIII of Campos de Castilla). He may also have been influenced by the news of the crime of «Durcielo» (Duruelo), which occurred on July 18, 1910, the details of which, as in that of Carrascosa, left a dreadful memory in the inhabitants of the Soria countryside.[9] The poem was written by Machado.

Campos de Castilla is a work written between 1907 and 1917, whose first edition corresponds to 1912. It represents Machado’s departure from the Modernism of Soledades. Galleries. Otros poemas (1907) and an approach to realist poetry and the regenerationism of the generation of 98. Compared to his previous work, it is characterized by abandoning the tendency to solipsism, adopting a critical attitude towards the reality that surrounds him, in what Cerezo Galán has called the passage from initial intimacy to dramatic realism[2].

2. In order to make Machado’s literature intelligible, we will make use of the interpretative resource of the anthropological space offered by Gustavo Bueno’s philosophical materialism[3]. This space is constructed in order to be able to situate systematically the totality of the materials that can be considered anthropological. It is a space that assumes that man is related to other non-anthropological entities from which he cannot be dissociated.

The anthropological space is a three-dimensional space, in which a circular, a radial and an angular axis can be distinguished. A geometrical denomination of the axes is chosen in order to avoid any metaphysical confusion.
