This ambitious book attempts to rehistoricize the Golden Age of Spain (ca. 1550-1680) by placing literary production in its socio-cultural context. Drawing on theories of cultural materialism and making use of historical analysis, George Mariscal focuses on the ways in which the problem of subjectivity is constructed in the writing of the period, particularly the poetry of Francisco de Quevedo and Cervantes' Don Quixote.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Mariscal's book brings a new perspective to Golden Age Spanish studies. Although it does not destroy the traditional opposition between Quevedo and Cervantes, it significantly and usefully complicates it. Contradictory Subjects is distinguished by its mastery of the relevant theoretical issues, a wide range of secondary sources, and a considerable number of primary 'nonliterary' texts of early modern Spain."

-- Walter Cohen, Cornell University

"Mariscal's examination of the 'subject' in Quevedo and Cervantes offers many insights into the texts in question and into the critical act itself. This important book will be the source of animated discussion and will lead to further studies of ideas and ideologies."

-- Edward H. Friedman, Indiana University
