Summary
(Life as a Novel) Blasco Ibanez-idealist and adventurer-is the magnificent heir to Cervantes, of the restless spirit of the Spanish Golden Age. Among his many novels are La Barraca (The Cabin), Blood and Sand, and his masterwork, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. In this dramatization of his life, directed by award-winning Spanish director Luis Berlanga, Blasco Ibanez appears as the fiercely independent, solitary genius he was-the rebellious student, unruly romantic, subversive journalist, fertile novelist, anti-monarchy political activist, and fervent admirer of Victor Hugo, Lamartine, and Zola. This is a fascinating personal portrait of one of the most important Spanish literary figures of the 19th and 20th centuries.
