A New History of Spanish Writing, 1939 to the 1990s explores the diversity of some sixty years of imaginative writing by Spaniards, its interactions with Spain's peculiarly dramatic history since the end of its Civil War, and its wider thematic significance. It covers the famous and canonical texts of the most recent in Modern Spanish literature but also explores areas less well-known outside Spain (essays and editorials, queer narrative, new poetry, comics, and texts of the militant and reactionary Right). More space than is usual in literary histories is allowed for commentary on famous texts, but the book also makes room for the marginalized and for socially contextualized explorations of the interconnectedness of various forms of writing. The overall structure is not chronological but thematic, dealing with abstract and topical issues such as silence, the family, or realism.

Review:

`One of the principal values of this volume is the way in which it examines not only the eruption in literary output of the 1980s and '90s but also details contributions made in pre-democratic Spain. An admirable variety of genres is discussed, from the subversive to the erudite, and all accompanied by relevant information on the social and historical context within which the writing took place, and on the authors themselves' British Bulletin of Publications, No.104

`An admirable work, historically grounded, competently written, and containing perceptive analyses of the many Spanish writers present in its pages ... A New History of Spanish Writing clearly demonstrates the breadth and effervescence of Spanish literary culture and makes an important contribution to literary studies.' David Ortiz, History

`an admirable work, historically grounded, competently written, and containing perceptive analyses of the many Spanish writers present in its pages ... A New History of Spanish Writing clearly demonstrates the breadth and effervescence of Spanish literary culture and makes an important contribution to literary studies.' David Ortiz, History: Reviews of New Books, Autumn 2000

`surveys all writing - not only that classified as literature - a strong point of the book. Another strength of A New History of Spanish Writing is its breadth.' David Ortiz, History: Reviews of New Books, Autumn 2000

`This book provides a welcome opportunity for taking stock both of the explosion of writing since democracy and of the wealth and variety of material that has sometimes been overlooked in lofty dismissals of pre-democratic Spain as an arid wilderness of ideologized culture.' Peter Evans, TLS 15/12/00.

`The focus on popular writing is particularly gratifying.' Peter Evans, TLS 15/12/00.

`a coherent overview of the turbulent and challenging conditions in which Spanish writers have managed to publish.' Peter Evans, TLS 15/12/00.

`the many achievements of this volume' Peter Evans TLS
