Platero y Yo/Platero And I (Dual-Language Books)

Juan Ramon Jimenez


Recipient of the 1956 Nobel Prize for Literature, Jian Ramon Jimenez (1881 1958) ranks one of the top-rated Spanish poets. The early impacts of German Romanticism and French Symbolism led Jimenez to the advance of his targeted voice, and he grew to become a pacesetter within the leading edge referred to as the "modernistas," who staged a Spanish literary revival on the flip of the 20th century.
Jimenez's preferred paintings, "Platero y yo," unfolds in his local Andalusia. a sequence of autobiographical prose poems in regards to the wanderings of a tender author and his donkey, it first seemed in a shorter model, appropriate for kids, in 1914. This new, actual English translation is drawn from the entire variation, which used to be released in 1917. the one dual-language variation of this vintage of Spanish literature, it's followed through a great advent and explanatory notes that may support scholars in figuring out and appreciating this work."
