Description

More famous for his classic The Art of Worldly Wisdom, Jesuit philosopher Baltasar Gracián wrote later in his life El Criticón, or The Critick, an epic novel that synthesizes the vision of the world that Baltasar Gracián had. The intention of this work is clearly didactic, to show what’s right and wrong. In general, Baltasar Gracián had a pessimistic view of human societies, although the two protagonist, the naïve and impulsive Andreino and the wise Critilo represent hope. This is a republished old translation but unfortunately there are no other modern translations in English.
