Women Writers of Spain: An Annotated Bio-Bibliographical Guide

Synopsis

This annotated bio-bibliographical guide provides long-overdue recognition for women writers of Spain, including special entries on those writing in Catalan and Galician. By familiarizing readers with the content and meaning of selected works by three hundred such writers, readers and students of Spanish literature now have access to works which may be judged as excellent examples of the literature of their age, yet have previously received little or no attention. Through the efforts of seventy-nine specialists in Spanish literature, each of these writers is summarized in a brief biographical sketch and overview of her work, followed by an in-depth analysis, including complete biographical data and descriptive annotations for the major works. While some women writers from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries are included, this guide concentrates primarily on authors of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, providing for the first time an extensive and comprehensive listing for the present century. The abundance of information in this guide is made accessible through four appendixes: a chronological list of authors; a list of Catalan authors; a list of Galician authors; and an index of translated titles in this bio-bibliography.
