Platero Y Yo

Book cover
By: (1881-1958)

Platero y Yo es un “diario” en prosa acerca de un tierno burrito llamado Platero. El autor describe su pueblo, Moguer, sus paisajes, sus animales y su gente con una perspectiva de única y refrescante. Al leer cada corta estrofa, o capítulo, nos transportamos a las calles de Moguer, escuchamos sus ruidos, y hasta olemos el pan recién sacado del horno. El poetico estilo de Juan Ramón Jiménez nos inspira a experimentar el mundo de cada uno de nosotros de una manera diferente y a percibir la belleza de la vida ordinaria en todo lo que nos rodea. - Resumen por Joyfull.

Platero y Yo is a “diary” in prose about a sweet little donkey named Platero. The author describes his town, Moguer, its landscapes, its animals, and its people in refreshing and unique perspective. When reading each short stanza, or chapter, we transport ourselves to the streets of Moguer, we listen to its sounds, and even smell the bread coming out of the oven! Juan Ramón Jiménez's poetic style inspires us to experience the world around us in a different manner and to perceive the beauty of ordinary life in everything that surrounds us.

In the interests of classroom work a few slight changes have been made, but it is hoped that in no case has the simple beauty of the author's style been marred.

In making the selections for use in this edition, the editor has aimed to choose those in which the narrative element predominates, confident that the delicate simplicity and charming philosophy of these idyllic sketches will arouse interest and excite sympathy as does no narrative of the usual sort...
