Spanish Ideology


Categoría: Etiqueta:

Larra critiques 19th century Spain in Ideario español, looking deeply into the failures of a nation caught in traditional ways, whose reform efforts didn’t effect its foundations. He attacks the rude manners of the time in «El castellano viejo,» the indolence of officials in «Vuelva usted mañana,» traditional shows in «Los Toros,» and demonstrates a sense of humor that doesn’t conflict with his over all pessimistic tone.
