Aunt Tula: A Dual-Language Book by Miguel de Unamuno

Product Description

Aunt Tula / La Tía Tula: A Dual-Language Book by Miguel de Unamuno

A provocative nonconformist and an outspoken enemy of all dogma, Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936) excelled in the creation of essays, fiction, poetry, and plays. In La tía Tula, Unamuno paints a memorable portrait of the indomitable Aunt Tula, who fulfills her maternal desires on her own terms.

This dual-language edition features an informative introduction and ample footnotes, making it not only a pleasure to read but also a valuable learning aid for students and teachers of Spanish literature. In the introduction, editor and translator Stanley Appelbaum observes that Unamuno's use of idiomatic wordplay "exploits the special features of the Spanish language. His vocabulary ranges from the colloquial to the highbrow. His language is always fascinating, and his experience and skill as a poet—not only a wordsmith, but a thinker in poetic terms—are evident on each page.
