The primary aim of the Dictionary of Spanish Literature is to serve as a convenient reference work for American students of Spanish and Spanish American literature. The treatment is concise, factual and objective, the endeavor being to present a maximum of data with a modicum of critical commentary, and to make the latter representative rather than subjective.
Within the given limits, the coverage includes the great anonymous masterpieces, the major and minor novelists, poets, dramatists, essayists and literary critics, both of Spain and of Spanish America. Also included are eminent Spanish literary scholars as well as outstanding Hispanists of other countries, but especially those of the United States. Wherever pertinent, the interrelationships of Spanish literature with that of other countries are treated in appropriate detail. The entire dictionary is thoroughly cross-referenced with respect to titles of representative works, famous literary characters and pseudonyms of authors.
