Riassunto: Antonio Machado (1875-1939) was one of Spain's most original and renowned twentieth-century poets and thinkers. In this volume, Nicolás Fernández-Medina focuses on Machado's folkloric "Proverbios y cantares," a collection of short, proverbial poems that he wrote between 1909 and 1937. Through close examination of the poems, Fernández-Medina shows Machado's great debt to earlier writers and thinkers, such as Plato, Kant, Schlegel, and Unamuno.
Dal retro di copertina: Antonio Machado (1875-1939) was one of Spain's most original and renowned twentieth-century poets and thinkers. From his early poems in Soledades. Galerías. Otros poemas (1907) to the writings of his alter-ego Juan de Mairena of the 1930s, Machado sought to explain how the Other became a concern for the self. In The Poetics of Otherness in Antonio Machado's 'Proverbios y cantares', Nicolás Fernández-Medina examines how Machados 'Proverbios y cantares', a collection of short proverbial poems spanning 1909-1937, reveals some of the poet's deepest concerns regarding the self-Other relationship. To appreciate Machado's organizing concept of otherness in the 'Proverbios y cantares', Fernández-Medina argues how it must be contextualized in relation to the underlying Romantic concerns that Machado struggled with throughout most of his oeuvre, such concerns as autonomy, solipsism and scepticism of absolutes. In this volume, Fernández-Medina demonstrates how Machado continues a practice of 'fragment thinking' to meld the poetic and the philosophical, the part and the whole, and the finite and infinite, to bring light to the complexities of the self-Other relationship and its relevance in discussions of social and ethical improvement in early twentieth-century Spain.
