Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936) is the towering intellectual giant of early twentieth-century Spain. He wrote novels, plays, poetry and many essays, but is best remembered for his fictional works and for his major philosophical meditation on the nature of existence. Abel Sanchez , first published in 1917, is perhaps Unamuno's most intense expression of the tragic sense. It is the story of one man's suffering, born of his obsessive envy of his friend and the consequences of this for him and for those around him. The novel explores themes of identity, personal insecurity, inner and outer relationships, and otherness - dissected with an intensity and a passion that can leave no reader unaffected. John Macklin's edition provides a new English translation alongside the Spanish text, together with a substantial introduction.

John Macklin is Professor of Hispanic Studies at the University of Glasgow and Head of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, and a Visiting Professor at the University of Ulster. In 1994, he was made a Commandor of the Order of Isabella the Catholic by King Juan Carlos for his services to Spanish studies. His many publications include an edition of Unamuno Abel Sanchez in this series.
