Under Franco's regime, it was declared as gospel truth that Madrid and Old Castile were the spiritual and cultural heartland of Spain, and peripheral cities and cultures of the Iberian peninsula must bow to that truth. Barcelona, however--la gran encisera, "the great enchantress"--always saw things rather differently. The earliest area of Spain to be colonised by the Romans, the capital of Catalonia is fiercely independent, somehow Spanish and not-Spanish, and most mysteriously of all, has been at the forefront of modernity, especially modern art and architecture, ahead of any other European city you could name with the possible exception of Paris. It is this Barcelona that fascinates Robert Hughes most, and he in turn fascinates us with his enthusiasm and knowledge of the place. He thrillingly evokes the cosmopolitanism and openness of Barcelona--qualities, he says, that derive inevitably from its status as a great Mediterranean port. And he is brilliant on perhaps the most exciting modern architect of all, Antoni Gaudi, the creator of the (still unfinished) Church of La Sagrada Familia, now as much an icon of the city as the Opera House in Sydney or the Statue of Liberty in New York. -- Christopher Hart -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


"Nobody has ever represented [Barcelona's] character more powerfully, or illustrated its claims to self-destiny more persuasively, than has Robert Hughes in this monumental work" (Jan Morris Los Angeles Times)

"Whether untangling the unlikely legends of Wilfred the Hairy or tangling with the likes of Antoni Gaudi, Hughes has shaped Catalan art, architecture and politics into the ultimate guidebooks" (David Newnham Guardian)

"A wonderful book, by far the best yet to have appeared in the current flood of books on Spain - and one that fills a genuine gap" (Martin Gayford Sunday Telegraph)

"Barcelona is unlikely to be rewarded with a better history than this. Robert Hughes is a master of the big canvas, scooping up the detail of social, economic, political and artistic life and producing images of captivating richness" (Sunday Times)

5.0 von 5 Sternen An important historical perspective 28. April 2000
Von DvoraT
I read Hughes' Barcelona before I went to Barcelona for the first time, and it made all the difference in the world. I arrived not as a stranger, but as a student of Catalan culture and history. The book gave me the background to have an informed perspective on what I was seeing. It may be long, but it has tons of information. My only complaint is that Hughes assumes the reader has a knowledge of history that I, for one, don't have. So there were things I didn't understand.
I liked that Hughes sometimes talked about the big things -- big events, important people, and he sometimes talked about the little things that make a place distinctive. His love of the place came through to me, and I fell in love with it too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful book on a marvellous city 28. Oktober 2008
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been several time to this wonderful city so I felt it was time to learn more in detail about its history. Hughes' book is definitely the right one to choose for this. He starts from the dawn of history, so to speak and takes you up to the present day. He has wonderful and witty style of writing and makes sure that this book never gets boring. It is quite amazing how thoroughly Hughes researched his topic and still managed to write a book that is entertaining and enlightening as well. For anyone who wants to get a better feel for this city, this is book to start - and I don't have the feeling I need to pick up another book on this topic. Hughes covered all of Barcelona very well.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A slightly inflated history of Barcelona 11. März 2000
First, let me say I thoroughly enjoyed Hughes' "The Fatal Shore" and the now classic "Shock of the New" and it was because of his track record for both regional and art history that I opened "Barcelona" with anticipation. I should have stopped at the introduction, wherein Hughes explains that he'd originally intended to write a much smaller work focusing on Barcelona's modernistas at the turn-of-the-century. Instead, at his publisher's urging (undoubtedly timed to capitalize on the 1992 Olympics) he broadened the scope to include Barcelona's story from prehistory to about 1925. The result is a wordy book which reminds me of the times I had to puff up a term paper with accurate, but nonessential facts in order to get to the required twenty pages. I would agree with another reviewer that this work is missing Hughes' usual spark and I can't help but think his heart wasn't in this one. Hughes states early on his love for Barcelona but unfortunately this compassion doesn't come across in the book. I would have been much happier if he would have extended Barcelona's history in the other direction. That is, beginning with the modernistas and proceeding to the Surrealists, the Civil War and through to Barcelona's post-Franco revival as a cultural center of Europe.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Erudite but also pompous and windy 11. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Robert Hughes has an enormous following, but I think it often has to do with people being impressed at his erudition (which is jaw-dropping) rather than at his actual insightfulness. He often pontificates when you would rather he would just describe or make a sustained argument; although this work is enormously informative, it lacks direction and drive when compared with some of Hughes' more successful works.
