Stresses the various types of irony in the poetic works of José de Espronceda, whom many literary commentators regard as one of the most outstanding figures in nineteenth-century Spanish literature because he so completely represents all aspects of Romanticism. Explores Espronceda's poems, particularly the longer narrative ones, and the prominent role played by irony - a main feature of the literary temperament of the Romantic Generation.
