"A common theme that ran through Unamuno's works was the struggle to preserve personal integrity in the face of the pressures of social conformity. In 1895, he published his first work, En torno al casticismo (Around Reason), a collection of essays that critically examined Spain's archaic position in Western Europe.
In 1901, de Unamuno became the University of Salamanca's rector. In 1913, he published Del sentimiento tragico de la vida en los hombres y en los pueblos (The Tragic Sense of Life in Men and Peoples), in which he examined the differences between faith and reason. He followed this with the novel Abel Sanchez (1917), an exploration of the Bible's Cain and Abel story."
