Narrative and National Allegory in Rómulo Gallegos's Venezuela
Jenni M. Lehtinen
MHRA Texts and Dissertations 8831 January 2013

  • ‘Lehtinen’s book will remain an indispensable contribution to the critical corpus on Gallegos and to Venezuelan studies in general.’ — Juan Pablo Lupi, Bulletin of Spanish Studies 93, 2016, 543
  • ‘Lehtinen’s book is of interest to established Gallegos scholars and students alike, both accessible and offering up new critical insights. Moreover, it should also be on the radar of Venezuelan scholars more generally, since it is a study that requires us to consider how contemporary and future Venezuelan authors respond to, perpetuate, or depart from the narrative strategies and trajectories traced in and through Gallegos’s œuvre.’ — Nicholas Roberts, Modern Language Review 111.4, October 2016, 1151-52 (full text online)

James Mabbe, The Spanish Bawd
Edited by José María Pérez Fernández
Tudor and Stuart Translations 101 October 2013

  • ‘This edited volume is a valuable contribution to early modern translation studies; it opens this neglected tragicomedy to new audiences, offers an erudite consideration of Mabbe’s text and its place within a complex web of literary and cultural exchange, and lays a solid foundation for future scholarship on La Celestina and The Spanish Bawd.’ — Edel Semple, Renaissance Quarterly 68, 2015, 1488-89
  • ‘Required reading for anyone with an interest in Mabbe and early Stuart Hispanism ... Pérez’s edition of The Spanish Bawd is the authoritative edition, the one I think scholars of the period will most want to have on their bookshelves.’ — John R. Yamamoto-Wilson, Translation and Literature 24, 2015, 99-103
  • ‘This MHRA edition, modernized for accessibility, offers an excellent point of entry to both early modern Spanish literature and renaissance translation.’ — unsigned notice, Forum for Modern Language Studies 51, 2015, 231
