Approaches to Teaching the Works of Miguel de Unamuno

A central figure of Spanish culture and an author in many genres, Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936) is less well known outside Spain. He was a surprising writer and thinker: a professor of Greek who embraced metafiction and modernist methods, a proponent of Castilian Spanish although born in the Basque Country and influenced by many international writers, and an early existentialist who was yet religious. He found himself in opposition to both King Alfonso XIII and the military dictatorship of Miguel Primo de Rivera and then became involved in the political upheaval that led to the Spanish Civil War.

Part 1 of this volume, "Materials," gives information on different editions and translations of Unamuno's works, on scholarly and critical secondary sources, and on Web resources. The essays in part 2, "Approaches," offer suggestions for introducing students to the range of his works—novels, essays, poetry, and drama—in Spanish language and literature, comparative literature, religion, and philosophy classrooms.

Reviews

"This is a very valuable tool for instructors at all levels of the Spanish curriculum . . . and is sure to be of use to scholars and teachers in other fields—comparative literature, philosophy, religion—who may be interested in including Unamuno in their classes." —Roberta Lee Johnson, University of Kansas
