About this title


This book is an examination of how gems and jewelry contributed to elaborating the expressiveness of the Hispanic literary movement known as Modernismo. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the use of bejeweled images in Parnassianism, Pre-Raphaelitism, Decadentism, and Symbolism are shown to have significantly influenced Modernismo's aesthetics. The underlying premise is that precious gem imagery was not an accessory but fundamental to Modernismo's innovations in poetic expression.
