Summary

This collection of prose works and poetry by famous Hispanic authors features intellectually mature and appealing selections whose brevity and simplicity of style do not require adaptation, simplification, or abridgement. The book includes nine new authors to provide a better representation of the " new" generation of writers. Two short one-act plays by Benevente and Bué naventura have been added as well. It includes a variety of selections by Latin American women authors and features selections by "poets" Gabriela Mistral and Miguel Herná ndez." Ideal for those interested in Spanish literature and poetry and those interested in broadening their perspective of life and culture in the Hispanic world.

Author Biography

Professor Gustave W. Andrian graduated from Trinity College with a B.A. in Modern Languages and began his studies for the doctorate in Romance Languages at Johns Hopkins University. While there, he had the great fortune to study with one of the great Spanish poets of the twentieth century, Pedro Salinas. After a hiatus of two-plus years, during which he taught in the Army Specialized Training Program in World War II, and also for a year at the University of Maryland, Andrian returned to Johns Hopkins, and received his doctorate shortly after the war ended.

 

Dr. Andrian accepted a position at Trinity College and spent the rest of his career there. Finding only elementary classes in Spanish, he gradually built a program of studies over the years that led to a major in Spanish. Besides a full teaching load, he established an exchange program with the University of Puerto Rico, an M.A. program in Spanish, and helped to found a study-abroad program in Córdoba, Spain. His own field of concentration while teaching was twentieth century Spanish literature.
