96 pages31 minutes


This volume contains a wonderful collection of poetry by George Santayana. This compendium consists mostly of Santayana’s sonnets and odes, but also contains a large number of miscellaneous poetry as well. The contents include: “Sonnets”, “On a Volume of Scholastic Philosophy”, “On the Death of a Metaphysician”, “On a Piece of Tapestry”, “The Power of Art”, “Gabriel”, “To W. P.”, “Odes”, “Lucifer”, and more. Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de Santayana y Borrás, better known as George Santayana (1863 - 1952), was a philosopher, essayist, novelist, and poet. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
