– a patient gentleman who wrote a book –
has been seated in the Elysian Fields for three centuries now,
from which he casts melancholy glances about him
as he waits for a descendant to be born
who shall be capable of understanding him.”
– Jose Ortega y Gasset,
Spanish philosopher, literary critic and
author of 37 books, including Meditations On Quixote (1961.)
The book was so strange that
Philip Silver published a commentary about it.
Ortega As Phenomenologist: The Genesis of Meditations on Quixote (1978.)
You know you’ve struck a nerve
when people write books about your books.
