Delibes evokes how his father forced him to go around the familiar house by bike to teach him to ride alone when he was seven.
Moreover, he emphasizes the role of the technical directors in "La mission del entrenador" after some statements made by Alfredo di Stéfano where he stated that coach is responsible for a 10% of the wins and a 40% of the defeats.
For Delibes, the soul of a team is the soul of a coach, principle he exemplifies with the magic touch and the scientific air of the play thinking developed by Helenio Herrera.
The Wars of our Ancestors - Miguel Delibes (1106 words)
Delibes isn't very subtle in naming his character: just as Pacífico is as pacific as it gets, so also Candi -- short for Cándida -- is as no-nonsense as it gets.
Delibes does some things very well: the characters, especially, are a rich and fascinating lot, from all of Pérez 's family to Candi and then the other prisoners.
Delibes has the doctor apologise for Pérez's "stammering and awkward phrases", but leaves that in the transcript "not only for textual fidelity but also as exponents of a life-style, a manifestation of the rural lexicon of Castille".
