The Spanish Temper

Eliciting comparisons to Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia, Pritchett’s meditative work on Spain is comprised of a string of sketches, woven around the author’s musings on the Spanish character.Having lived in Spain for four years during the 1920s, Pritchett is well placed to deliver such a report, and his resulting narrative is both well informed and delightfully written.
