Description:

New York. 1929. Longmans Green & Company. 1st American Edition. Very Good.No Dustjacket. 27. 297 pages. hardcover. Cover: Bolegard. keywords:. inventory # 26935. FROM THE PUBLISHER - All that is most typically Spanish is summed up in this love story of Paco, the dazzling Andalusian bull fighter, and Puriya, the greatest living Spanish dancer. Tragedy, poignant and bitter, comes when Puriya stabs the man she loves more than life itself, and that to save the man she hates above all others; but neither she nor Paco regret the price of their ecstatic passion.’Others manufacture locomotives,’ exclaims the bull fighter, ‘we make castanets. Is it nobler and more useful to create riches than enjoyment? We think of life as a perpetual source of enjoyment, which we seek with passion and at any price.’ Never before has the soul of Spain been described more freshly or with more deep insight! is the opinion of Unamuno, the great Spanish poet and philosopher, and his fellow countrymen seem to have agreed with him, for this novel has enjoyed a phenomenal success throughout Spain. As Cervantes caught once and for all the Quixotic aspect of the Spanish character, so has Reyles, with lesser genius, undoubtedly, but with amazing depth of feeling, portrayed that passionate, carefree, pleasure - loving Spain, ever ready to put off until tomorrow whatever interferes with the enjoyment of today, to hazard the whole future for the ecstasy of a moment - that langorous, sensuous, lazy Spain that in the twinkling of an eye can become electrically alive and vigorous, the Spain of flower-pots, barred windows and moonlight serenades, and of flashing daggers and delirious bull fights.

Book Description Longmans Green & Company, 1929. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good.No Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1929. Longmans Green & Company. 1st American Edition. Very Good.No Dustjacket. 297 pages. hardcover. Carlos Reyles was an Uruguayan writer of realistic psychological novels, writing in favor of the accumulation of material wealth, a position rarely found among intellectuals of the period. Reyles, the son of Carlos Reyles and Maria Gutierrez, was born on October 30, 1868, in Montevideo, where he was educated at the Hispano-Uruguayan School (1878-1885). He devoted himself to a literary career while still very young. When Reyles was eighteen years old he had a fortune of a million pesos left him by his father, who was one of the first to devote himself in Uruguay to the improvement of cattle-rearing. To this his son also gave some attention, spending a great part of his life improving and enlarging his ranches, where he specialized in the breeding of horses and cattle. Carlos Reyles founded the political club Vida Nueva, which brought together under its banner the intellectual youth of the Colorado Party. For some time he lived outside his country, making his home in Buenos Aires and pursuing a literary life. Cover: Bolegard. keywords: 41241. inventory # 26912. FROM THE PUBLISHER - All that is most typically Spanish is summed up in this love story of Paco, the dazzling Andalusian bull fighter, and Puriya, the greatest living Spanish dancer. Tragedy, poignant and bitter, comes when Puriya stabs the man she loves more than life itself, and that to save the man she hates above all others; but neither she nor Paco regret the price of their ecstatic passion.’Others manufacture locomotives,’ exclaims the bull fighter, ‘we make castanets. Is it nobler and more useful to create riches than enjoyment?

As Cervantes caught once and for all the Quixotic aspect of the Spanish character, so has Reyles, with lesser genius, undoubtedly, but with amazing depth of feeling, portrayed that passionate, carefree, pleasure - loving Spain, ever ready to put off until tomorrow whatever interferes with the enjoyment of today, to hazard the whole future for the ecstasy of a moment - that langorous, sensuous, lazy Spain that in the twinkling of an eye can become electrically alive and vigorous, the Spain of flower-pots, barred windows and moonlight serenades, and of flashing daggers and delirious bull fights.
