Miguel de Unamuno
Unamuno, Miguel de (1864-1936). A leading literary figure in his time, for many years Miguel de Unamuno y Jugo was rector of the University of Salamanca.
De Unamuno was directly responsible for Spain’s great poetic and intellectual revival known as “The Generation of 1898”.
De Unamuno was not only a brilliant philosopher, but a fearless critic who managed to incur the deep enmity of four successive Spanish governments. He was forced to resign as rector, but continued to teach at the university until his death.
In the book, "A SALUTE TO SPANISH POETRY: 100 MASTERPIECES FROM SPAIN AND LATIN AMERICA RENDERED INTO ENGLISH VERSE", Miguel de Unamuno is represented by four of his finest poems, namely Full Moon on the Lake of Christ in the Village of Yeltes (29); Castile (38); A Village Cemetery in Castile (82); and Beauty (140).
