ILLUSTRATED BYMAUD AND MISKA PETERSHAM1922PREFACEThe present edition of _Platero y yo_ contains selections from both thefirst edition of the original work, published by La Lectura, Madrid,1914, in its _Biblioteca de Juventud_, and the complete edition,published by Calleja, Madrid, 1917, as one of the volumes of _Obras deJuan Ramn Jimnez_. In the interests of classroom work a few slight
changes have been made, but it is hoped that in no case has the simplebeauty of the author's style been marred.In making the selections for use in this edition, the editor has aimedto choose those in which the narrative element predominates, confidentthat the delicate simplicity and charming philosophy of these idyllicsketches will arouse interest and excite sympathy as does no narrativeof the usual sort. With almost no exception, pupils delight in readinganimal stories, and who could resist the appealing charm of _Platero yyo_, in which the central figure is a little donkey possessing all thequalities of amiability and camaraderie which Stevenson's mouse-coloredModestine so utterly lacked?Although the editor believes the material to be eminently suitable forsecond-year classes, the brevity of the chapters, the simplicity ofstyle, the Notes, which are intended to be thorough and to explain all
difficult passages, and the carefully prepared Vocabulary are notablefeatures which should recommend its use with any classes that have anunderstanding of the fundamental principles of Spanish grammar.It is intended that the Exercises will afford a means not only ofreviewing mere forms but also of distinguishing as to usage betweenwords frequently confused,--a phase of foreign language study thatpresents difficulties even to students of advanced classes. Especialattention is called to the _Redaccin_, a type of exercise that has been
found most helpful in stimulating an interest in oral and writtenrsum. There is much mechanical monotony in the question-and-answer
exercise if used without variation, and any exercise that will aid inencouraging a spirit of adventure, a willingness to use new speech unitsas a basis for self-expression, is well worth trying. It is suggestedthat the pupil be allowed to refer to the key-words in giving the rsum
and that he be directed to make such word groups for himself of thosechapters not already provided with the _Redaccin_. It is a valuable
exercise to select the significant words and phrases, those that suggestin logical sequence the principal episodes of the narrative as well astheir descriptive background.The editor gratefully acknowledges her indebtedness to Sr. Juan Ramn
Jimnez for permission to use _Platero y yo_, to Professor Federico de
Ons, General Editor of this Series, for his valuable assistance in
preparing the material, and to the Editorial Department of D.C. Heath &Co. for many helpful suggestions and advice.G.M.W.#NDICE#
