Overview

DaSilva draws together key essays dealing with the span of Spanish and Latin American arts, ranging from literature, music, film, and ballet to painting. Scholars and researchers involved with the scope of Spanish and Spanish American arts will find this collection of particular value. The selections center on basic themes including the icons of Spain, the use of characters from classic Spanish literature in performing and visual arts, romantic and modern Spanish writers and their influences, and the fusion of Mexican and Spanish culture.

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. Scholars and researchers involved with the scope of Spanish and Spanish American arts will find this collection of particular value.
