The late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Spanish literature discussed in this volume falls into two main categories: the work of the Galician novelist, short-story writer and critic, Emilia Pardo Bazán, and the wider context of prose fiction and criticism during the period 1870 to 1935. These two areas represent the main spheres of interest of the distinguished scholar and critic Maurice Hemingway, to whose memory this volume is dedicated.
 
Maurice Hemingway was associated with Hispanic scholarship of the highest quality, and this book exemplifies the appreciation of Hemingway's work by his colleagues and academic friends in the UK, Spain, France, USA and Canada. Hispanists involved with modern Spanish literature will find the book crucial to their investigations.
Bulletin of Hispanic Studies
“This well-presented, clearly annotated and indexed volume contains fourteen articles on late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century prose including contributions on Galdós, Padre Coloma, Unamuno, Insúa and Pardo Bazán . . .  What is impressive about this diverse collection is the way in which it does succeed in holding together . . .  The collection bears testimony to the interdependence at the heart of academic practice and the intertextuality integral to it . . .  [and] is a valuable contribution to the study of modern Spanish literature.” –Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Vol. LXXVIII, No. 2, April 2001
Bulletin of Hispanic Studies
“A banquet for the mind awaits readers of this slim but handsome volume of fourteen essays.” –Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Vol. LXXVIII, No. 3, 2001
