Description

The career of Spain s celebrated author Carmen Martin Gaite spanned the Spanish Civil War, Franco s dictatorship, and the nation s transition to democracy. She wrote fiction, poetry, drama, screenplays for television and film, and books of literary and cultural analysis. The only person to win Spain s National Prize for Literature (Premio Nacional de las Letras) twice, Martin Gaite explored and blended a range of genres, from social realism to the fantastic, as she took up issues of gender, class, economics, and aesthetics in a time of political upheaval.Part 1 ( Materials ) of this volume provides resources for instructors and a literary-historical chronology. The essays in part 2 ( Approaches ) consider Martin Gaite s best-known novel, "The Back Room" ("El cuarto de atras"), and other works from various perspectives: narratological, feminist, sociocultural, stylistic. In an appendix, the volume editor, who was a friend of the author, provides a new translation of Martin Gaite s only autobiographical sketch, alongside the original Spanish."
