The book project began to develop in 1924. On July 3, 1924, it is dated Apunte para una Oda (Note for an Ode), the predecessor of Soledad. Tribute to Fray Luis de León. The first great poem in the book is the Ode to Salvador Dalí, which he began to devise in the summer of 1925, which he spent in the Vega of Granada (the family had already bought the Huerta de San Vicente (St. Vincent Farmhouse), but were still renovating it). On several occasions, the author announced the finished book as ready for publication. At one point he said it would be accompanied by pictures. Like his other announced books, it would not be published as such during the author’s lifetime.
