At his speech-recital on April 8, 1926 in Valladolid he read extracts from the Oda a Salvador Dalí (Ode to Salvador Dalí), among other texts. It was a time when he took the opportunity at any conference, whenever he could, to speak of Salvador, whom he sincerely admired. He also had great success reciting the Ode to Salvador Dalí at the fifth session of the Spanish Cinema Club, a session called ”Oriente y Occidente” (“East and West”), in early April 1929. He recited it, after the films representing Oriente (Orient), this ode and the poem Thamar y Amnón (Thamar and Amnon).
