San Manuel Bueno, mártir constituye, sin duda alguna, un punto culminante en la creación literaria de Miguel de Unamuno. Porque él mismo declaró: "Tengo la conciencia de haber puesto en ella todo mi sentimiento trágico de la vida cotidiana". Pero, al mismo tiempo, porque aquí culmina el proceso de renovación del género novelístico que Unamuno había comenzado a principios d ...more

"Méteme, Padre eterno, en tu pecho, misterioso hogar, dormiré allí, pues vengo deshecho del duro bregar. Sólo le pido a Dios que tenga piedad con el alma de este ateo."

Esta es la inscripción sepulcral de Don Miguel, y que sin duda resume de manera magistral el carácter del protagonista de esta corta novela. Unamuno la escribe en 1930, en plena controversia modernista -como me recordó el profesor Laboa, cuando solo llevaba seis páginas leídas, pero que me sirvió para entender mejor el libro.

Este cuento fue interesante pero me gustó más Niebla. Ésta es la historia de un cura que salve a todo su pueblo pero que no cree en Dios. Es existencialista y los personajes llegan a cuestionar su existencia, comparándola con los sueños, tal como en La vida es sueño de Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Mencionan este maestro de libros.

It is a pleasure to open this book every time. Unamuno was such a trendsetter, I have a lot of respect for him both as an author and as a person. This is one of my favorite books of all time. En el nombre del pueblo, me absuelves?

Amazing book. Lleno de simbolismos y metaforas, trata de forma magistral el tema fundamental de la fe. Maravilloso.

Miguel de Unamuno was born in the medieval centre of Bilbao, Basque Country, the son of Félix de Unamuno and Salomé Jugo. As a young man, he was interested in the Basque language, and competed for a teaching position in the Instituto de Bilbao, against Sabino Arana. The contest was finally won by the Basque scholar Resurrección María de Azcue.

Unamuno worked in all major genres: the essay, the nove
