The selections center on ten basic themes: The early icons of Spain; the uses of Don Quixote from operas to painting; Don Juan is given a similar treatment, with theater, film, and ballet in addition to literature and opera; an examination of areas of fusion of Spanish and Mexican culture; Spanish Romantics in opera and ballet; modern writers whose work appears in musical transcription; modern writers whose novels appear in film; an examination of works that parody earlier pieces; a survey of the interrelationship between painting and its literary sources; and a look at the variegated artistic peregrinations of such contemporaries as Marquez, Puig, Skarmeta, and others.

?One of the rewarding features of this volume is that it gathers together a variety of contributors, both established scholars from different fields of study and cultural practitioners, bridging the artificial divide between the academic and the creative and establishing a fruitful dialogue between them... the essays are not only an enjoyable read but they are also rigorous in their scholarly apparatus... showing impeccable editorial work by Professor Zenia Sacks DaSilva. The volume is a valuable contribution to the area of cross-cultural studies. Its scope of reference and disciplinary span provide an excellent source of inspiration for both teaching and further study.?-Bulletin of Spanish Studies
