Description: Squeezed between more powerful France and Spain, Catalonia has endured a violent history. Its medieval empire that conquered Naples, Sicily and Athens was crushed by Spain. Its geography, with the Pyrenees falling sharply to the rugged Costa Brava, is tormented, too. Michael Eaude traces this history and it monuments: roman Tarragona, celebrated by the poet Martial Greek Empries, lost for centuries beneath the sands medieval Romanesque architecture in the Vall de Bo:i churches (a World Heritage Series) and Poblet and Santes Creus monasteries. He tells the stories of several of Catalonia's great figures: Abbot Olivia, who brought Moorish learning to Europe, the ruthless mercenary, Roger de Flor, and Verdaguer, handsome poet-priest. Catalonia is famous today for its twentieth-century art. This book focuses on the revolutionary Art Nouveau buildings (including the Sagrada Famlia) of Antoni Gaud. It also explores the region's artistic legacy: the young Picasso painting Barcelona's vibrant slums Salvador Dal, inspired by the twisted rocks of Cap de Creus to paint his landscapes of the human mind and Joan Mir, discovering the colors of the red earth at Montroig. "A great contribution to international understanding of Catalonia, with the eye of the person who lives inside but comes from outside." -- Quim Aranda, Avui "Sure-footed in every field, Eaude, [writes] with a beguiling lightness of touch in this tour of Catalan culture and society." -- The Independent "The best attempt so far to give the English-reading public an accurate idea of what this 'stateless culture' consists of." -- Times Literary Supplement -- About the Author
