This collection of valuable new studies explores major figures in twentieth-century Spanish culture such as Antonio Machado, Rafael Alberti, Federico García Lorca, and Luis Buñuel, offering a fresh and engaging interpretation of their artistic works. The inclusion of less-familiar subjects has wider ramifications: the translation of one of Santiago Rusiñol’s plays informs a discussion on censorship and a Catalan novel by Llorenç Villalonga relates to a much larger discussion of European nationalist thought. While some contributors adopt feminist, psychoanalytical, or philosophical approaches, the focus throughout is on understanding Spanish culture within its historical and social context.
