I shall begin a new series here highlighting some authors and books that mean something dearly for me at this time. Aiming at a calendar of my selective faves. Unamuno's The Tragic Sense of Life hits the spot so well, he stands in the rich Kierkegaardian tradition here, i wish to collect more of him when i can, there's a Princeton series of his selected works but only three volumes are there and the one on Cervantes is over 100 dollars!! But Tragic Sense of Life is probably the thing of his i'd most value.

A man can change greatly, almost completely even, but the change must take place within his continuity." (from "Tragic Sense Of Life" by Miguel de Unamuno, J. E. Crawford Flitch) [/quote]
awful, dark and depressing says one reviewer, ... can't wait to be able to afford it, because what i need is what normal people describe and feel that way towards
