About the Author:

Michael Bradburn-Ruster received his Ph.D in Spanish Literature from the University of California at Berkeley. He has taught Golden Age poetry, theatre, prose, and Spanish language at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, before moving to Prescott, Arizona. In addition to several articles on comparative spirituality in Golden Age literature, he has published his own poetry, and a translation of the Spanish novel Lady of the South Wind.

Review:

The Angel or The Beast exemplifies the author's superb ability to bring the insights of theology, philosophy, literary criticism, and mystical theology to bear on sophisticated intellectual issues. The extent of his research is formidable; his use of language is brilliant; his insights are original and compelling. (Mary E. Giles)

El libro es excelente y constituye una autentica revelacion en los estudios sobre el Siglo de Oro pudiendose afirmar, sin genero de dudas, que marca una verdadera renovacion en los mismos. -- Jess Garca-Varela
