Juan Ramon Jimenez
Platero Y YoStreaming Video - 2005
Platero y Yo, the ever-popular poem series written by Nobel Laureate Juan Ramon Jimenez, chronicles the life of an amiable donkey and serves as a vehicle to comment on life in Moguer, Jimenez' native village. This imaginatively scripted program features a simulated TV interview with the writer whose style bridged the gap between Dario and the Generation of 1927. Based on authentic interviews and Jimenez' own writings, the program dispels misconceptions related to the different points of view between the author and the reader and offers valuable insights into the symbolism of the story's characters. Vivid descriptions of Jimenez' childhood in Andalusia are provided as well.
