Reviews

“The book is, in fact, as its author desires, a gateway to further research, but it is also a faithful and accurate portrait of the type and quantity of information on French literature that a select group of Spanish intellectuals had around the turn of the twentieth century. After the fatigue of too much literary theory, it is refreshing to find out that much can be learned from facts and carefully researched and analyzed data.”
