About this title


This study of 16th and 17th-century Spanish literature focuses on the work of Teresa de la Cruz, Cervantes, Aleman, Gracian, Gongora, Lope de Vega and Calderon. The volume has three broad aims: first, to argue the case for standing by literature courses in modern language departments; second, to continue the work of applying to the Golden Age texts the theories and practice of post-structuralism, and third, to re-affirm the historical and cultural importance of a period of Spanish civilization in danger of being eclipsed by obsession with the ultra-modern or the ultra-practical. In discussing the work of the included writers the contributors raise questions about gender and autobiography, redefinitions of the author's voice as it struggles for authenticity in the criss-cross codes of individual and collective inspiration, deconstruction of narrative contexts, notions of spectatorship and subjectivity, and discourses of power. The book's main readership is intended to be Hispanist teachers and students of Spanish literature in higher education.
