Product description

"Traveler, there is no road; you make your path as you walk". While others suggest taking the road less travelled, Antonio Machado suggests that we each make our own road. In this series of brief poems Machado utilises traditional Spanish verse forms to create a wide ranging collection of reflections and philosophical insights in the form of aphorisms. Poems that have the immediacy of epigrams or Japanese haiku. Antonio Machado (1875-1939) is one of the greatest poets of 20th century Spain. He along with Juan Ramon Jimenez and Miguel de Unamuno formed the generation of 1898, which ushered in a new Spanish poetics.
