Reviews

"Lyrical, almost magical, the Renaissance writers of Castile, produced an astounding array of work from an even more astoundingly diverse pool of writers. Arabs, Jews, Spanish, Christians, and speakers of the Castilian language wrote and distributed their works whether in the local dialect, in Spanish or in Latin. They are well-represented here...The editors provide portraits (when available) for each, a comprehensive index, and illustrations about their work or times."--Reference & Research Book News, February 2008
