“Love is like talent, like wealth, like beauty: the privilege of a few” (Blasco Ibañez)

Words of the author, writer, journalist and politician, Vicente Blasco Ibañez (Valencia, Spain 1867- France 1928), in “A los pies de Venus”.

 

 

Vicente Blasco Ibáñez was born in Valencia, in 1867. He studied law and in 1888 he began his literary career that he combined until 1908 with a big political activity that took to him into exile in France. He founded the newspaper El Pueblo and was a deputy in Cortes.

He was the Spanish-speaking novelist with the greatest international projection of his time.

His political ideology was based on a progressive project: the change of regime to establish the republic; secularism and anticlericalism promoting the separation of Church and State; moderate social reformism seeking conciliation of social classes and defense of individual and group liberties.

Some experts, such as writer and researcher José Luis León Roca, consider that Blasco Ibáñez is the first of the writers of the Generation of ’98 and other Hispanists have rejected his alleged anti-clericalism.

In 2017, the 150th anniversary of his birth was celebrated with an explicit recognition by different organizations, both for its universality and its contribution to the development of the city of Valencia.

The life of Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, author of “La Barraca”, “Arroz y Tartana” and “Los cuatro Jinetes del Apocalipsis”, as well as “Sangre y Arena” about the bullfighting, it was directing for TV the Spanish director Luis García Berlanga.

In addition, on “the four riders of the Apocalypse” have been shot two films, one of them directed by Vicente Minnelli.
