Belarmino & Apolonio
Ramon Perez de Ayala (a.); Murray Baumgarten & Gabriel Berns (trans. & intro.). Ramon Perez de Ayala (1880-1962) was an outstanding figure of Spanish letters during the first 3 decades of the 20th century. His most widely acclaimed novel is Belarmino & Apolonio, which has become a Spanish classic, & is set in Spain. Belarmino, the shoemaker-philosopher, has a daughter, & Apolonio, the shoemaker-playwright, has a son; these hapless lovers are caught up in the conflict. They will eventually speak to each other & their children will finally be reunited in love. The novel is interspersed with comments on everything from religion to food to art. Perez de Ayala digresses, inserts essays, jokes, criticizes Spanish mores, & bursts out with lyrical ecstasies, & generally writes as if he is having a wonderfully good time.
