Los mejores libros jamás escritos

Edición de Juan Cano Ballesta, catedrático emérito de literatura española de l. a. Universidad de Virginia

En Mariano José de Larra, considerado el primer gran periodista español, conviven una imbatible actitud crítica, heredada de los viejos ilustrados de nuestro país, y el apasionamiento romántico. Pocos aspectos de los angeles realidad de l. a. época se escapan a su mirada, y su afilada pluma se ejercita en el escarnio de errores políticos, de vicios privados, de pecados nacionales, de lacras sociales. Sus artículos son piezas modélicas por su desengañada ironía, por su profundidad, por l. a. precisión y elegancia de su estilo, por el acierto en l. a. elección de las anécdotas y por su pericia a los angeles hora de relatarlas.

Esta edición incluye una introducción que contextualiza los angeles obra, un aparato de notas, una cronología y una bibliografía esencial, así como también varias propuestas de discusión y debate en torno a l. a. lectura. Está al cuidado de Juan Cano Ballesta, catedrático emérito de l. a. Universidad de Virginia (EE.UU.).

«Nunca está el hombre más filósofo que en sus malos ratos.»
