Description

From the EDITORIAL NOTE. Enrique Gomez Carrillo, the author of these war notes and sketches, is one of the best-known of the younger Spanish writers and journalists of to-day. He is a native of Guatemala, where he was born in 1873, but much of his work has been done in Paris, whose literary and theatrical life before the war he described in several volumes of sketches, "El Modernismo," "Almas y Cerebros," "Como se pasa la vida," etc. He has also travelled in, and written about Russia and Greece, has published a study of Buenos Aires, and is the author of several well-known novels, and collections of short stories - "Flores de Penitencia," "Maravillas," etc. During the war M. Gomez Carrillo has made several tours along the Western front as correspondent of El Liberal. The results of earlier impressions were published in three volumes - "Notes on the War," "Battlefields and Ruins," and "In the Trenches." Last year, in company with the Marquess of Valdeiglesias (proprietor and director of the well-known Madrid daily La Epoca), and several other Spanish journalists occasionally mentioned in his book, he visited England and the British front, and the party were entertained at a luncheon at the Savoy Hotel by the proprietors of all the London newspapers, under the presidency of Lord Burnham. M. Gomez Carrillo is an old and faithful friend, both of France and of England, and the Allies owe much to the vigorous descriptive talent with which he has presented their achievements and expounded their cause to the Spanish-speaking peoples of the old and the new worlds.show more
