Recensione dell'utente  - JBreedlove - LibraryThing

A disappointing read after Man in Crisis. One of Gasset's early works the book is a series of short essays about Spain, Quixote, Cervantes, and the novel. The book is saved by some pointed insights on what is heroism and adventure. Leggi recensione completa
