About this product
- DescriptionThe Cambridge Companion to the Spanish Novel presents the development of the modern Spanish vel from 1600 to the present. Drawing on the combined legacies of Don Quijote and the traditions of the picaresque vel, these essays focus on the question of invention and experiment, on what constitutes the singular features of evolving fictional forms. It examines how the vel articulates the relationships between history and fiction, high and popular culture, art and ideology, and gender and society. Contributors highlight the role played by historical events and cultural contexts in the elaboration of the Spanish vel, which often takes a self-conscious stance toward literary tradition. Topics covered include the regional vel, women writers, and film and literature. This companionable survey, which includes a chrology and guide to further reading, conveys a vivid sense of the invative techniques of the Spanish vel and of the debates surrounding it.
