Overview

The present edition of Platero y yo contains selections from both the first 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 de Juan Ramón Jiménez. In the interests of classroom work a few slight changes have been made, but it is hoped that in no case has the simple beauty of the author's style been marred.

In making the selections for use in this edition, the editor has aimed to choose those in which the narrative element predominates, confident that the delicate simplicity and charming philosophy of these idyllic sketches will arouse interest and excite sympathy as does no narrative of the usual sort. With almost no exception, pupils delight in reading animal stories, and who could resist the appealing charm of Platero y yo, in which the central figure is a little donkey possessing all the qualities of amiability and camaraderie which Stevenson's mouse-colored Modestine so utterly lacked?
