A calm, dispassionate analysis of Spain's national characteristics, which takes in the whole panorama of Spanish history and shows how modern tendencies are due to causes embedded in the original Spanish character. Examines the close connection between the character of the Spaniards and the land they inhabit. Shows how the philosopher Seneca refined instinctive attitudes toward stoicism and ethical austerity. Delineates the nature of Spanish detachment, idealism and individualism, explaining how these characteristics inevitably led to an excess of regionalism and a loss to the greater community

The deceitful marriage, and other exemplary novels by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was the Exemplary Novels, published three years before his death ... that established Cervantes' literary reputation among the intellectuals of his time. These picaresque stories ring with racy idiom and peasant humor, and with explicit characterizations that show how well he knew the speech and folkways and psychology of the common people. Among the Exemplary Novels presented here are three of his most famous ones: The Deceitful Marriage, a cynical tale of Spanish domestic life, merciless in its realism, pungent in its humor; The Little Gypsy, a love story of a high-spirited girl whose haunting counterpart has reappeared in the works of Goethe and Victor Hugo; and The Dogs' Colloquy, judged by many critics to be the greatest short story ever written."--Page 4 of cover
