This collection of valuable new studies explores a variety of major figures in Spanish culture. Antonio Machado and Rafael Alberti are among the poets covered. There are considerations of the theatre and verse of Federico Garcia Lorca, and the book also contains articles on Miguel de Unamuno and Antonio Buero Vallejo. Famous films by Luis Bunuel and Victor Erice are given fresh interpretations. The inclusion of less familiar subjects has wider ramifications: the translation of one of Santiago Rusinol's plays informs the discussion on censorship; a Catalan novel by Llorenc Villalonga relates to major currents of European thought; examining the literature of the nationalist Right challenges received political assumptions about aesthetic categories. While some contributors adopt feminist, psychoanalytical or philosophical approaches, the stress throughout is on understanding Spanish culture within its historical and social context. Most importantly, the style of criticism is clear and accessible. The international contributors are: Victor Dixon, Gwynne Edwards, David George John Hall, Sharon Handley, Robert Havard, Alan Hoyle, Jordi Larios, Helen Laurenson-Shakibi, John London, Montserrat Lunati, Herbert Ramsden and Jeremy Squires. The book will be of interest to students and specialists alike.
