Overview

This is the first volume - in English or Spanish - to analyze the work of the principal women poets of Modern Spain. In it, John Wilcox draws on recent feminist critical theory and shows how Spanish poetry by women is not just a modern phenomenon but an ignored tradition whose roots reach back to the very beginnings of poetry of the Iberian Peninsula. Wilcox offers a brief overview of pre-1860s poetry and a reevaluation of the work of Rosalia de Castro (1837-85), "the one modern Spanish woman poet who has not been ignored." Also discussed are women poets of the male-dominated Generation of 1927, including Ernestina de Champourcin and Concha Mendez; and representative women poets of the Franco era, 1939-75 (Carmen Conde, Concha Zardoya, Angela Figuera, and Gloria Fuertes), and the post-Franco era (Francisca Aguirre, Maria Victoria Atencia, Clara Janes, Amparo Amoros, Ana Rossetti, and Blanca Andreu).
