A Rose for Winter Travels in Andalusia
Penguin, 1978 (reprint), 122 blz., porto 3,45 euro NL, ISBN 014003319X, Paperback, discoloured spine, name on title page, stains on book block, in reasonable condition.,Andalusia is a passion - and fifteen years after his last visit Laurie Lee returned. He found a country broken by the Civil War, but the totems of indestructible Spain survive: the Christ in agony, the thrilling flamenco cry-the pride in poverty, the gypsy intensity in vivid whitewashed slums, the cult of the bullfight, the exultation in death, the humour of hopelessness-the paradoxes deep in the fiery bones of Spain. Rich with kaleidoscopic images, A Rose for Winter" is as sensual and evocative as the sun-scorched landscape of Andalusia itself..
