9780671713744: Homage to Barcelona

A personal evocation of the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, considered by some to be the fashionable city of the 90s. First built by 14th-century merchants and rebuilt by Catalan nationalists five centuries later, Barcelona is the centre of Catalan culture. The author describes the architecture, art, churches, museums, boulevards and port life of this culturally rich city which has thrived on the presence of so many artists, architects and musicians. Art and politics are brought together as the abyss of the Civil War approaches and the city's suffering is seen through the eyes of those who were involved. It culminates in the terrible end which Franco's army brought to the hopes and dreams of the Catalans. The author also wrote "Walking Along the Border" and "The South".
