Notă biografică

Baltasar Gracián was an aphorist, imaginary biographer, and novelist, who published studies of ideal figures and handbooks on the arts of rhetoric and comportment. His books include The Hero, Shrewdness and the Art of the Artist, The Art of Worldly Wisdom, and The Master Critic. Many high officials felt attacked by the controversial and critical works of this Jesuit priest-professor. Gracián refused to be censored, and was eventually confined to solitary house arrest, where he died.


"Absolutely unique . . . a book made for constant use—a companion for life."—Arthur Schopenhauer

"Europe has never produced anything finer or more complicated in matters of moral subtlety."—Friedrich Nietzsche
