"Go to the end of the world, you'll find a Gallego," he said. Then he drank down his wine, rubbed his mouth on the back of his hand, and started droningly:

'Si quieres qu'el carro cante

mójale y dejel'en río

que después de buen moja'o

canta com'un silbi'o.'

(If you want a cart to sing, wet it and soak it in the river, for when it's well soaked it'll sing like a locust.)

"Hola," cried Don Antonio, "go on."

'A mí me gusta el blanco,

¡viva lo blanco! ¡muera lo negro!

porque el negro es muy triste.

Yo soy alegre. Yo no lo quiero.'

(I like white; hooray for white, death to black. Because black is very sad, and I am happy, I don't like it.)

"That's it," cried Don Antonio excitedly. "You people from the north, English, Americans, Germans, whatnot, you like black. . . . Read More

An early work, Rosinante blends travel, literary criticism, and a fictionalized account of Dos Passos' travels in Spain with a friend. I'm guessing that the young E.E. Cummings was the model for the irrepressible Lyaeus, who contrasts with the more Puritan and introspective Telemachus, representing

This is an interesting blend of fictional road trip, literary criticism and travel writing. Dos Passos makes it work. He hears the incipient Republicanism rising against the centuries of rule by the landowners, but not yet the Fascism, so overall it is a positive work.

not quite a century old, this book is amazingly timely in the ideas that are presented. technology advances and nowadays quite rapidly. that gives us the illusion of change even improvement. but the fact is: human nature is the same as it always has been. this book's details fairly proves the realit

Giving homage to Cervantes by using Rosinante in the title bringing with it visions of Don Quixote's trusty steed on the path of discovery. Dos Passos examines the spirit of the people of Spain in the years after World War I in this work. The comparison of the all work attitude of the Americans vers

*Rosinante to the Road Again* is a travel book that takes us through 1922 Spain. This is scholarly writing with its best parts being about the fine arts. It also has historical value as Spain is described as having the worst of corrupt societies, where the cops are basically bullies for the governme

A scattershot collection of essays and fictional sketches that mostly misses the mark. As someone who admires Dos Passos’s early fiction (I haven’t delved into his post-1930s work, yet), I'm surprised to find the weakest parts of these essays are his attempts to write “literary nonfiction,” in which

This is the first John Dos Passos book I've read that I haven't unequivocally loved. Some beautiful prose in here, but it's drowned out by uncharacteristic pomposity and a muddled structure.

Pio Baroja, Quijote, Valle-Inclán, Lope de Vega, vascos, catalanes, anarquia, tauromaquia. Todo eso y más en un libro.

Me ha sorprendido gratamente este libro. Dos Passos demuestra un interés sincero por conocer y comprender cómo era España en los años 20 del siglo pasado (se nota que lo vivió); y lo más importante, sabe escribirlo. La misma clarividencia se aprecia en los brillantes análisis que hace de Machado, Bl
