Lorca's Sketches of Spain: Impressions and Landscapes is a unique book, now available in an unillustrated e-book edition as well as an illustrated print edition. Federico García Lorca’s first book, published when he was just nineteen, is a series of meditations on Spanish art, landscapes and history. Brimming with passion and excitement, the young writer travels in search of Spain's essential spirit: sunsets in Granada, the Gothic magnificence of Burgos Cathedral, ‘the savage splendour’ of Castile's mountains and plains. While Lorca celebrated Spanish culture – romantic gardens, agonised crucifixes, Gregorian plainchant and ‘the bite of flamenco' – he was also fearlessly critical when, for example, the harshness and celibacy of monks’ lives or poverty and injustice aroused his rage. Serif’s new edition of this formative work by one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers takes the reader straight to the heart of Lorca’s Spain. With its rich, poetic prose, Sketches of Spain is a missing piece in the jigsaw puzzle of a creative life cut tragically short by the author's assassination at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War.

This eloquent and powerful book combines poetry and pragmatism to teach the language of landscape. Anne Whiston Spirn argues that the language of landscape exists with its own syntax, grammar, and metaphors, and that we imperil ourselves by failing to learn to read and speak this language. To understand the meanings of landscape, our habitat, is to see the world differently and to enable ourselves to avoid profound aesthetic and environmental mistakes.

This accessible book offers a vivid geographic portrait of Cuba, exploring the island's streetscapes, sugar cane fields, beaches, and rural settlements; its billboards, government buildings, and national landmarks. The authors illuminate how natural and built landscapes have shaped Cuban identity (cubanidad), and vice versa. They provide a unique perspective on Cuba's distinct historical periods and political economies, from the colonial period through republicanism and today's socialist era. Compelling topics include the legacies of slavery and the sugar industry, the past and future of urban development, and the impact of ?islandness” on sociocultural processes.
