Platero and I (), a poignant and charming story in poetic prose about a silver-gray donkey named Platero, is popular with children. Jimenez did not intend it for children exclusively, however, but rather as a celebration of the essence of the child, "a spiritual island fallen from heaven.5/5(1). Together Platero and his master make friends with the parrot, belonging to a local French doctor, whose sole and frequent pronouncement is “Ce n’est rien.” Both prolific and profound, Juan Ramón Jiménez () wrote over seventy books, winning the Nobel Prize in literature.

Description of the book "Platero and I": In this translated Spanish classic, Juan Ramón Jiménez tells his burro Platero about their native Andalusian village of Moguer. Their dialogue creates an evanescent portrait of provincial Spain—its streets, homes, animals, children, and eccentrics. Oct 27,  · Platero y Yo is a deeply melancholic book; a look back at a time that is gone. Juan Ramón Jimenez captures every detail of Moguer with meticulous vivacity, seemingly wanting to avoid forgetting and stop time from swallowing his memories. Reading Platero y Yo, I felt an inherent sadness in the old man character that I only saw counterbalanced.

PLATERO Y YO/PLATERO AND I. The book ends with a series of episodes from Christmas to Carnival. The poet scarcely reveals himself except as an observer. Of his friendship with the donkey, he remarks that ``We understand each other. I let him go wherever he wishes and always he takes me where it is I wish to go''; his lyrical descriptions of. In prose, his best-known work is PLATERO AND I, a series of brief, unconnected sketches, in all, about life in Moguer, the whole given unity by the presence of a silver-gray donkey, Platero.
