This study provides a fresh assessment of Spanish Romanticism through a sympathetic appraisal of its literary theory and criticism. It identifies the origins of Spanish Romantic thought in the theories of German Romantic thinkers, in particular Herder's historicism. The range of reference, from the articles of Böhl von Faber to the judgments made by Cañete and Valera is counterpointed by the detail of close readings of books and articles published between 1834 and 1844, together with an examination of the ideas that informed the creative work of Fernán Caballero. Derek Flitter's use of the history of ideas offers a corrective to the recent preponderance of political approaches to Spanish Romanticism, countering their stress on its radical and liberal associations with a detailed demonstration that the majority of Spanish Romantic writers derived their inspiration from restorative, traditionalist, and Christian elements in their contemporaries' theory and criticism.

Johann Nikolas Böhl von Faber was a Hispanist and Germanist at a time when European cultural ideology was evolving from Enlightenment thought toward the new Romantic aesthetic. This book outlines and evaluates his considerable and crucial contribution to the development of European Romanticism in Spain as well as his role as a pivotal figure in nineteenth-century European letters. The first full-length treatment of von Faber's life and work in its entirety, A German Romantic in Spain fills a significant gap in our appreciation and knowledge of Spanish Romantic thought.

Other matters considered include the medieval revival, the rejection of Enlightenment formulae, the fear of an absent but psychologically potent Revolution, Romantic diagnoses of nineteenth-century reality within the prism of the 'Two Spains', and the entailments of Romantic literary history and its construction of a casticista cultural identity."--Jacket.

Political Revolution and Literary Experiment in the Spanish Romantic Period 1830 1850

This work brings together the study of political and literary thought in response to revolution in order to present an alternative view of the strength of liberalism generally and progressivism in particular. It re-examines the achievements of progressive thought about politics, history, nationhood, and literature, investigating the basis of the philosophical dispute between Conservative and left Liberals. The strong presence of progressive thought in Spain is affirmed. The study also underlines the importance for literary historians of understanding more sympathetically the contribution of Conservative Liberal thought to a recognizable Liberal Romanticism.

It is customary to regard gender roles and representation in nineteenth-century Spain as polarized and predictable. But in this volume, leading scholars from the UK and USA not only discuss the patriarchal emphasis of Spanish culture, but also demonstrate that this was a period in which the relations between men and women were being constantly negotiated, challenged, and redefined as part of an on-going transformation of political and national identities.

Spanish Romanticism in Context

This book investigates the elements of contradiction, subversion and ambiguity inhabiting major works of Espronceda, Larra, Rivas and Zorrilla and reveals the politics of their literature through an examination of the cultural context. The book presents Zorrilla's Don Juan Tenorio and Rivas' Don Alvaro as replications of cultural codes in evolution and conflict. The essay on Don Juan Tenorio considers a number of the play's inconsistencies, contradictions and lacunae and explores its popularity as the product of a political agenda. This new interpretation of Don Alvaro permits the reader to see both Rivas and his drama in light of cultural context: a society established on paradoxical, conflicting codes of behavior. Although both plays are frequently considered hallmarks of Romanticism, these analyses reveal a politics of conservative shadings in liberal disguise. Two essays on Larra locating him in his cultural context and an exploration of irony as the instrument of subversion in Espronceda's El estudiante de Salamanca complete the work. The focus throughout the book is on subversion and contradiction, both intentional and accidental, as the results of literary production in unstable cultural and political contexts.
