Otero, Blas de 1916–
Otero is a Spanish poet. His early poetry is marked by its anguished and isolated tone, reflecting the young poet's struggle with the question of God and of faith. Later in his life, however, Otero overcame his sense of alienation and expanded his poetic concerns to include the social and political problems of contemporary Spain. He is generally considered one of the finest and most influential poets of the postwar generation in Spain.
