Lightbulb Free (Kindle) Granada Window by Marguerite Steen [Vintage Spain Cultural Travelogue]

Granada Window by the late English author Marguerite Steen (Wikipedia), a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature whose works enjoyed a period of popularity in the 1930s and 1940s, is her vintage cultural history cum travelogue memoir of Spain, a country she would later settle in, which combines a look at its literature, history, and heritage alongside a tour of the region of Andalusia, sprinkling in her own experiences encountering the Andalusian people during her travels, and observations of cultural differences between Britain and Spain, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press' Odyssey imprint.

This was originally published in 1949 by The Falcon Press.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and pretty much everywhere else Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)

Description
“Happy the reader who makes his first acquaintance of the immortal history of Don Quijote de la Mancha in the country which gave it birth.”

And so begins Marguerite Steen’s compelling and personal account of Spain, the country she would later adopt as her own.

Starting with an insightful examination of Spain’s greatest literary figure, Cervantes, and his enduring classic Don Quixote, Steen explores the uniqueness of Spain’s cultural heritage, from its classic literature to the historical legacy of the Moorish rule.

Grenada Window also takes us on a whirlwind tour of the Spanish region of Andalusia, painting a unique portrait of the Andalusian provinces of Granada and Seville.

Here, Steen describes, in intimate detail, her own experiences with the Andalusian peoples and reflects on the cultural differences between Britain and Spain.

From vivid scenes of bullfighting and flamenco to powerful descriptions of the Andalusian landscape, Grenada Window is a remarkable belle-lettre and historical account of one writer’s enduring love affair with Spain.
