Books Info:

Hispanic Profiles free pdf Hispanic Profiles is an extraordinary contribution not only to The English- and Spanish-speaking cultures but for anyone interested in the great history, literature, music, painting, and architecture of the Hispanic world. Its purpose is to provide the kind of education that has been lacking in the publishing industry, that is, a single volume that offers the reader the depth and scope that is found in this book.

Some of the most familiar names will be Cervantes, El Greco, Velazquez, Calderon de la Barca, Murillo, Garcia Lorca, Goya, Ortega y Gasset, Enrique Granados, Victoria de los Angeles, Picasso, Alicia de Larrocha, Jose Clemente Orozco, Frida Kahlo, Joan Miro, Pablo Casals, Placido Domingo, Juan Ramon Jimenez, Pablo de Sarasate. Heitor Villa-Lobos, Pablo Neruda, Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, Diego Rivera, Octavio Paz, and David Alfaro Siqueiros - the not so familiar. We all have heard of Chaucer and his Canterbury Tales, but how many have heard of Juan Ruiz de Hita? Yet knowledgeable critics consider Juan Ruiz superior to Chaucer who wrote at about the same time. There is not a single playwright in the world superior to Lope de Vega - save for Shakespeare, of course. We have all heard of the character Don Juan and pe
