9780138241520: Spain

Spain is one of the absolutes. Nothing is more compelling than the drama, at once dark and dazzling, of that theatre over the hills – the vast splendour of the Spanish landscape, the intensity of Spain’s pride and misery, the adventurous glory of a history that set its seal upon half the world . . .Passionate, evocative and beautifully written, Spain is a companion to the country: its people, its history – and its character. First published in 1964 and no less compelling today, Jan Morris’s classic work is back in print, bringing Spain, its glory and its tragedy, vividly to life.

From Publishers Weekly:

Originally published in 1964 when the author was still known as James Morris and somewhat revised in 1979, Spain is here reissued in a fussily designed edition. Despite the fact that it portrays the country at the point when it was about to emerge from its decades-long domination by Franco, Morris's textdiscussing landscape, legend, history, religion and architecturestands up well; but, set in small type and a long line measure, it is difficult to read. The striking illustrations, reminiscent of Miro, that decorate chapter openings and the 10 ill-chosen, sentimentally realistic paintings by various Spanish artists clash with Cecilia Eales's pleasant, washed-out watercolors with their handwritten captions.
