About this title

Synopsis:

Enchanted by the landscape and people of Spain, Maugham had long resolved to write a picaresque novel about the country. Instead, he wrote a living commentary assessing a great people in their greatest hour. DON FERNANDO, considered by Graham Greene to be Maugham's best work, is a paean to Spain's golden age of enormous creative energy. Beginning with the vivid tale of Loyola's life and conversion, it discusses the writings of St Teresa and the painting of El Greco, and comment with sagacity and wit on such illustrious figures as Cervantes, Luis de Lyon, Lope de Vega, Velasquez and the creator of Don Juan. DON FERNANDO is full of happy surprises, curious facts and stimulating opinions that reflect Maugham's lifelong love and admiration for Spanish culture and civilisation.

From the Inside Flap:

A paean to Spain's golden age of enormous creative energy, Don Fernando begins with the vivid tale of Loyola's life and conversion, discusses the writings of St Teresa and the paintings of El Greco, and comments with sagacity and wit on such illustrious figures as Cervantes, Luis de Léon, Lope de Vega, Velasquez and the creator of Don Juan.
