Jesus of Nazareth in the Literature of Unamuno

A new survey of Unamuno’s understanding of the fountainhead of Christianity.

Unamuno’s perception of Christianity, which has a major presence in his work, has proved controversial. This book adopts a new approach by studying what Unamuno has made of the fountainhead of Christianity in six of his works. It examines three major essays, including “The Tragic Sense of Life,” and three more purely literary works, including the long poem “The Christ of Velázquez.”
