Abstract

A New History of Spanish Writing 1939 to the 1990s is an excellent study which is sure to become a standard reference book on the subject. The reason for this lies with its novel approach to literary history. Traditionally, histories of post-war Spanish literature take a chronological approach, studying the development of texts, authors and literary trends from one period to another beginning with tremendismo. A New History of Spanish Writing 1939 to the 1990s chooses instead to examine broad themes across the fifty-odd years of the study. These themes include history, family, power and disempowerment, silence, realism, ‘new’ writing, pleasure, as well as cultural, sexual, and generational diversity.
