The generation of Spanish artists known as the 98ers, who renounced politics and sought their country's true spirit within its landscape, culture, and character, are well represented here by thirteen stories by five outstanding authors. Four of the stories are by Miguel de Unamuno, the spiritual leader of the Generation of 1898. Among the other authors included here. Ramón del Valle-Inclán was a chief representative of modernismo fiction. Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, one of the best-known of these writers (though not usually regarded as an authentic 98er), was a keen observer of peasant life. Pío Baroja, sometimes called the foremost Spanish novelist of the twentieth century, wrote a virile, unadorned prose whose style is reputed to have influenced Hemingway. And &quote;Azorín&quote; (José Martinez Ruiz), represented here with a short novel, has an impressionistic and elliptical style that has been described as a literary counterpart to abstract painting.This dual-language edition features an informative introduction and ample footnotes, making it not only a pleasure to read but also a valuable learning and teaching aid for students and teachers of Spanish literature.

    El redondismo es la política de la no existencia. Su principal principio teórico es ahorcar, si se puede, al seis doble después de tomar el café en el Casino.

    Y desde entonces he concebido un verdadero odio a eso que llamamos progreso, y hasta a la cultura, y ando buscando un rincón donde encuentre un semejante, un hombre como yo, que llore y ría como yo río y lloro, y donde no haya una sola máquina y fluyan los días con la dulce mansedumbre cristalina de un arroyo perdido en el bosque virgen.
