The consolidation of law and the development of legal writing during Spain's Golden Age not only helped that country become a modern state but also affected its great literature.

Passing for Spain charts the intersections of identity, nation, and literary representation in early modern Spain. Barbara Fuchs analyzes the trope of passing in Don Quijote and other works by Cervantes, linking the use of disguise to the broader historical and social context of Counter-Reformation Spain and the religious and political dynamics of the Mediterranean Basin. In five lucid and engaging chapters, Fuchs examines what passes in Cervantes’s fiction: gender and race in Don Quijote and “Las dos doncellas”; religion in “El amante liberal” and La gran sultana; national identity in the Persiles and “La española inglesa.” She argues that Cervantes represents cross-cultural impersonation -- or characters who pass for another gender, nationality, or religion -- as challenges to the state’s attempts to assign identities and categories to proper Spanish subjects. Fuchs demonstrates the larger implications of this challenge by bringing a wide range of literary and political texts to bear on Cervantes’s representations. Impeccably researched, Passing for Spain examines how the fluidity of individual identity in early modern Spain undermined a national identity based on exclusion and difference.

Transnational Cervantes

This ambitious work aims to utterly change the way Don Quixote and Cervantes' other works are read, particularly the posthumous The Trial of Persiles and Sigismunda. William Childers sets out to free Cervantes' work from its context within the histories of the European national literatures. Instead, he examines early modern Spanish cultural production as an antecedent to contemporary postcolonial literature, especially Latin American fiction of the past half century. In order to construct his new context for reading Cervantes, Childers proceeds in three distinct phases. First, Cervantes' relation to the Western literary canon is reconfigured, detaching him from the realist novel and associating him, instead, with magic realism. Second, Childers provides an innovative reading of The Trial of Persiles and Sigismunda as a transnational romance, exploring cultural boundaries and the hybridization of identities. Finally, Childers explores traces of and similarities to Cervantes in contemporary fiction. Theoretically eclectic and methodologically innovative, Transnational Cervantes opens up many avenues for research and debate, aiming to bring Cervantes' writings forward into the brave new world of our postcolonial age.

Shakespeare National Poet Playwright

Shakespeare, National Poet-Playwright is an important book which reassesses Shakespeare as a poet and dramatist. Patrick Cheney contests critical preoccupation with Shakespeare as 'a man of the theatre' by recovering his original standing as an early modern author: he is a working dramatist who composes some of the most extraordinary poems in English. The book accounts for this form of authorship by reconstructing the historical preconditions for its emergence, in England as in Europe, including the building of the commercial theatres and the consolidation of the printing press. Cheney traces the literary origin to Shakespeare's favourite author, Ovid, who wrote the Amores and Metamorphoses alongside the tragedy Medea. Cheney also examines Shakespeare's literary relations with his contemporary authors Edmund Spenser and Christopher Marlowe. The book concentrates on Shakespeare's freestanding poems, but makes frequent reference to the plays, and ranges widely through the work of other Renaissance writers.

The Garden of Janus

The Garden of Janus is a mythical and magical journey into the depths of Cervantes's soul through dreams, memories, and enigmas. It is a narrative of a narrative, as the reader sees Cervantes's avatars transformed into the story of Don Quixote. The title refers to a mysterious garden in the land of Atocha, in old Madrid where Cervantes, as a child, would go for strolls with his younger brothers and sisters. The children stumbled upon this orchard, where they saw the statue of the double-faced Roman deity Janus, father of the Olympus. Half a century later, and in the same enchanted garden, Cervantes encountered the ghosts of his own fictional characters, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. The troubled ghosts, eager to confront their creator, informed Cervantes that while he was delaying the writing of their adventures, an impostor was writing a continuation of their story, leading them through the nightmare of a fake existence. From this point on, the novel aims to unravel a double mystery, both human and literary: What made Cervantes wait ten years to write the second part of his acclaimed novel, and who was Alonso Fernandez de Avellaneda, the plagiarist who dared to write a sequel for Cervantes's novel? Rojas ponders whether the impostor, whoever he was, intended to destroy Cervantes, thus keeping him from writing his second part, or on the contrary, intended to provoke him into writing it. Was he acting alone or was he trying to protect someone else's identity? Rojas uses historical evidence and his own interpretation to create a novel of intrigue and mystery. He weaves his plot like a detective through intricate and surprising revelations about Cervantes and his contemporaries, Lope and Gongora, as he tries to unmask Avellaneda.

New Mexico's first Franciscan priest, Fray Angélico Cheavez (1910-1996) is known as a prolific historian, a literary and artistic figure, and an intellectual who played a vital role in Santa Fe's community of writers. The original essays collected here explore his wide-ranging cultural production: fiction, poetry, architectural restoration, journalism, genealogy, translation, and painting and drawing. Several essays discuss his approach to history, his archival research, and the way in which he re-centers ethnic identity in the prevalent Anglo-American master historical narrative. Others examine how he used fiction to bring history alive and combined visual and verbal elements to enhance his narratives. Two essays explore Chávez's profession as a friar. The collection ends with recollections by Thomas E. Chávez, historian and Fray Angélico's nephew. Readers familiar with Chávez's work as well as those learning about it for the first time will find much that surprises and informs in these essays.

For the first time, Dr. David Whitwell presents a thorough study of the performance of music in society together with the philosophical views on art versus entertainment, the role of performance in education and character formation and how earlier philosophers viewed the interplay among Reason, Emotions, experience and the senses. The present volume gives the reader a comprehensive view of the aesthetics of music in sixteenth-century Italy, France and Spain. Included here are some of the greatest writers and artists of the High Renaissance, including Castiglione, Cardano, Michelangelo and Montaigne. Since the sixteenth century represents the final chapter in the long Church philosophy of Scholasticism in music, the reader will find particular interest in separate chapters on the Theory of Music versus the Practice of Music in Italy.
