Book Description

The Routledge Hispanic Studies Companion to Early Modern Spanish Literature and Culture introduces the intellectual and artistic breadth of early modern Spain from a range of disciplinary and critical perspectives.

Spanning the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (a period traditionally known as the Golden Age), the volume examines topics including political and scientific culture, literary and artistic innovations, and religious and social identities and institutions in transformation. The thirty-six chapters of the volume include both expert overviews of key topics and figures from the period as well as new approaches to understudied questions and materials.

This invaluable resource will be of interest to advanced students and scholars in Hispanic Studies, as well as Renaissance and Early Modern Studies more generally.
