Miguel de Unamuno y Jugo was born in 1864 in Bilbao, in the Basque Country, and became a writer, poet and philosopher, and one of the most important intellectuals of modernism in his homeland. He served as a lecturer at the University of Salamanca and was removed from his position as rector for political reasons. He exiled his country and finally returned, where he had died, in 1936. Among his most known works are the novel Fog (Niebla), and Our Lord Don Quixote (Vida de Don Quijote y Sancho) and Three Exemplary Novels and a Prologue (Tres novelas ejemplares y un prólogo), which relates to Miguel de Cervantes’ literary heritage.
