“El abrazo de Almanzor”: Nota sobre una huella de Adam Mickiewicz en la obra de Manuel González Prada
The note aims at indicating a new topic that needs to be analysed in the context of Manuel González Prada’s work, that is, the influence of the compositions of the Polish romantic, Adam Mickiewicz. The author points out the passages taken by González Prada directly from the work of Mickiewicz. Among them appear not only the official translations but also fragments that are not made clear to those who do not know the work of the Polish poet. An obvious example is the motif of the „embrace of Almanzor”, a metaphorical concept devised by Mickiewicz, which González Prada uses on at least two occasions: as the title of an inconclusive ballad that was meant to be a free translation of Mickiewicz’s ballad, as well as in a phraseological sense, in one of his political writings.
