The Literature of the Spanish People: From Roman Times to the Present Day

By Gerald Brenan | Go to book overview

A SHORT BIBLIOGRAPHY
THIS bibliography is intended to help the general reader to find the best available texts of the writers he may wish to read and the most useful books of a critical and biographical nature that have been written upon them. Whenever possible I have listed editions that are still in print and not too expensive. I have omitted books that are of interest only to the specialist.
ABBREVIATIONS
Bibl. Aut. Esp. Biblioteca de Autores Españoles
Bibl. Contemp. Biblioteca Contemporánea, Losada, Buenos Aires
Bibl. Sopena Biblioteca Sopena, Buenos Aires
Clas. Cast. Clásicos Castellanos
Col. Aus. Colección Austral, Buenos Aires
Col. Crisol Colección Crisol, Aguilar, Madrid

As a rule the best edition in which to read the Spanish classics is that of Clásicos Castellanos (Espasa Calpe, Madrid), with its good print, footnotes and excellent introductions, but when these cannot be obtained one of the cheap Argentine editions, Austral (Espasa Calpe, Buenos Aires) or Contemporánea (Losada, Buenos Aires) will be found useful. A new edition published by Aguilar, Madrid, printed on India paper and relatively expensive, offers the complete works of a number of writers: otherwise one has to fall back on the large, unattractive volumes of the Biblioteca de Autores Espafioles, published in the last century by Rivadeneyra, but usually kept in print.


GENERAL

A useful general history of Spanish Literature is Historia de la literatura Española by Angel Valbuena Prat, 3 vols., 3rd ed., 1950. The best general anthologies are the Oxford Book of Spanish Verse, rev. J. B.Trend
