His stay at the Residence de Estudiantes in Madrid was also noticeable in the composition of the texts, especially in the last three, known as Romances Históricos (Historical Ballads). The last part of the composition period coincides with his friendship with Dalí. Dalí’s opinion of the ballads was not, as we know from a letter, very complimentary, because he saw them as traditional, although he did praise their poetic genius.
