This book proposes a new way of tracing the history of the Early Modern Spanish novel through the prism of literary continuation. It identifies and examines the Golden Age narratives that invented the sequel and the narrative genres that the sequel in turn invented. These genres include the Celestinesque, the sentimental, the picaresque, the pastoral and the chivalric novels. The Invention of the Sequel also defines the sequel's forms and functions, thus filling a major gap in literary theory in general and Peninsular literary studies in particular. Throughout we see that sequel develops first and foremost in Early Modern Spain, an unacknowledged and unexamined contribution to Western letters. Given this panoramic scope, this study serves as an introduction to the central narratives genres and texts of the era. These texts include Fernando de Rojas's 'Celestina', Diego de San Pedro's 'Cárcel de amor', 'Lazarillo de Tormes', the Diana, Jorge de Montemayor's 'Diana', Mateo Alemán's 'Guzmán de Alfarache' and Miguel de Cervantes' 'Don Quijote'.

Review:

Bravo for this book ... This book, through a series of carefully chosen and beautifully studied cases, combines impeccable research with intelligent close reading. BULLETIN OF SPANISH STUDIES Hinrichs's analysis of the sequel is both readable and well researched, providing a wealth of information to scholars and students especially in the discussion of little known works. It is also illuminative in both the questions it raises as well as the answers it provides. RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY

Book Description Boydell & Brewer Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book proposes a new way of tracing the history of the Early Modern Spanish novel through the prism of literary continuation. It identifies and examines the Golden Age narratives that invented the sequel and the narrative genres that the sequel in turn invented. The author explores the rivalries between apocryphal and authorized sequelists that forged modern notions of authorship and authorial property. The book also defines the sequel's forms and functions, filling a major gap in literary theory in general and Peninsular literary studies in particular. Notably, the author demonstrates that the sequel develops first and foremost in Early Modern Spain, an unacknowledged and unexamined contribution to Western letters. With its panoramic scope, this study serves as an introduction to the central novelistic genres and texts of Early Modern Spain. From this foundational starting point, it also offers a general framework for understanding imaginative expansion in subsequent time periods and literary traditions. William H. Hinrichs is a founding faculty member and Assistant Professor of Modern Languages at Bard High School Early College, Queens. Seller Inventory # AAH9781855662322
