Ortega y Gasset's Ideas About the Novel (English and Spanish Editions)
Ideas About the Novel is a prophetic book.
Years before academics and critics attempted to analyze the problems of the Novel, Jose Ortega y Gasset dissected it —and to some extent saved it— by pointing out that
(1) the novel should show and not tell
(2) the novel should move from plot to character, and
(3) the novel as a non-transcendent art form—and much more.
