Item description for Ligero de Equipaje: La Vida de Antonio Machado by Ian Gibson...

In January 1939, Antonio Machado would cross the border from Spain to France accompanied by his mother, traveling, as was his custom, with only the essentials. He died three weeks later in the small French town of Collioure, his appalling state a warning sign of his impending passing. Machado was sixty-four. Ian Gibson, internationally renowned Hispanist, has dedicated years of research and work to give us Machado's life story --a passionate journey through the private life, philosophy and work of a man who is considered today one of the most read and loved Spanish poets of all times.

Description in Spanish: Antonio Machado proceda de una familia sevillana intelectual con hondas races republicanas. Madrileo a partir de los 8 aos, sin olvidar nunca su infancia en la capital andaluza, su paso por la Institucin Libre de Enseanza lo marc indeleblemente y el Pars finisecular le hizo el regalo inestimable de la poesa simbolista.

En enero de 1939, cercano el final, Machado cruz la frontera con su madre en condiciones deplorables. Muri tres semanas despus, a los 64 aos, en el pequeo pueblo francs de Collioure. Ligero, como siempre, de equipaje. Hoy es uno de los poetas espaoles ms ledos y amados de todos los tiempos. sta es su historia.

Por fin, fruto de esa ingente labor, salen a la luz todos los detalles y todo lo que no se ha contado nunca sobre el gran escritor espaol de la Generacin del 98.
