News at Eleven: In various jails, [Miguel] Hernández wrote many poems

that were included in letters to his friends and family, particularly his wife, Josefina Manresa--a seamstress from his hometown Orihuela, with whom he had two sons. "Everything Is Filled with You" was written during this time of imprisonment and was published in 1958 in his final collection of poems, Cancionero y romancero de ausencias (Songs and Ballads of Absence).
