Description

This study examines broadly aesthetic, cultural, personal and public issues in the work of Juan Ramon Jimenez, Valle-Inclan and their Irish contemporaries. Jimenez knew Irish literature and corresponded with Yeats; Valle, as a Galician writing in Castilian, was subject to the same crisis of identity as his Irish contemporaries. This study attempts to draw conclusions about communal identity, the presentation of nature and the peasantry, and the search for spiritual and aesthetic fulfilment in Spanish and Anglo-Irish literature during the first quarter of the 20th century.
