From the Publisher"This impressive history of the literature of Spain sets a new standard of excellence. Essential."
CHOICE July 2005
"Giles has chosen an eminent group of scholars from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Spain to collaborate with him on the project, and the result is an incisive, thorough, and varied presentation of texts, authors, currents, and movements...They negotiate the old and the new with relative ease. Their scholarly criteria are rigorous, and their subjective critical acumen becomes part of the frame. Along with the factual information that is associated with manuals of literature, this history bears the imprint of distinct and compelling analytical processes. The book is an admirable reference tool and a treat to read."
-, Edward H. Friedman, Vanderbilt University, Renaissance Quarterly
"David T. Gies...has joined with 46 other distinguished scholars to produce a seminal work on Spain's rich literary history....This outstanding reference tool is an essential purchase."
- American Reference Books Annual
"None of the previous, similar compilations in English...is extensive or inclusive enough, to compare to the long overdue contribution this terrific reference makes. It overflows with information deftly presented by some of the top international scholars."
Jasmina Arsova, University of California, Los Angeles
"David T. Giles and his fellow collaborator's Cambridge History is a long-overdue comprehensive English-language approach to Spanish Literature."
