About the Author
Juan Ramón Jiménez (1881-1958) was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1956. Christopher Maurer is professor of Spanish at Boston University and the author of numerous books on Spanish poetry.
"Maurer provides ample context for Jiménez's maxims, so that we begin to know Jiménez as a person and a poet as well as a philosopher. The aphorisms are marvelous nuggets of wisdom."-- "Booklist"
"Maurer has fashioned a gem of a book, a fertile source of insights for perfection-seekers in many fields."-- "Publishers Weekly"
