Culture and Gender in Nineteenth-Century Spain is a wide-ranging discussion on women's writing and representations of gender in Spanish literature and culture from the Romantic period to the fin de siecle. It is customary to regard gender roles and representation in nineteenth-century Spain as polarized and predictable. But in this volume, leading scholars from the UK and USA discuss not only patriarchal emphasis of Spanish culture, but also demonstrate that this was a period in which relations between men and women were being constantly negotiated, challenged, and redefined as part of an on-going transformation of political and national identities. Contributions look at women's writing and the representation of women in canonical texts, the construction of both femininity and masculinity, issues of race and region, and popular fiction, journalism, and the visual arts. All quotations are given in Spanish and in English translation. Lively, challenging, and theoretically sophisticated, Culture and Gender in Nineteenth-Century Spain provides a much-needed overview of the Spanish cultural production in the most decisive of centuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
this is a volume that truly delivers on its promise ... In their informative and thoroughly enjoyable introduction the editors - both well respected Hispanists in their own right - outline their critical stance ... the studies included are consistently engaging, well-argued and written, and they do, in fact, represent some of the challenging new directions into which Peninsular Hispanism is venturing. * L. Elena Delgado, University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), Revista de Estudios Hispanicos, Vol. 31, BNo. 3, October 1997 *
This is a ground-breaking contribution to Hispanic studies ... the pioneer status of the collection and the quality of individual contributions should ensure this volume a place on reading lists for the foreseeable future. * British Bulletin of Publications, No. 96, April 1997 *
