About the Book This English translation of De Quilmes a Hyde Park: Las fronteras culturales en la vida y la obra de W. H. Hudson, which won the 2001 Annual Prize in Literature of ... Uruguay, analyzes how the richness of Hudson’s work is linked to the overlapping of several cultures in his life. His work and life developed in the opposition of Romanticism to Enlightenment, wavering between literature and science. Combining biographical details with analysis of his philosophy and works, the study follows Hudson’s life from his childhood on a cattle farm in Argentina to his emigration to England in 1874, including the years he fought on the frontier between whites and indigenous populations and the years he spent traveling abroad. The study concludes with a bibliography of Hudson’s books, poems, posthumously published works, and translations into Spanish, as well as critical studies of Hudson.
