About the Author
"Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de Santayana y Borrás, known as George Santayana (1863 – 1952), was a philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist. A lifelong Spanish citizen, Santayana was raised and educated in the United States and identified himself as an American, although he always kept a valid Spanish passport.[1] He wrote in English and is generally considered an American man of letters. At the age of forty-eight, Santayana left his position at Harvard and returned to Europe permanently."--Wikipedia
