Celebrate 1,000 years of Spanisb literary creativity!
Bá rbara Mujica's Milenio is a testament to the extraordinary vitality, creativity, and history of Spanish literature. From "El Cantar de Mio Cid" (one of the earliest examples of Spanish literature) to pieces by such modern masters as Juan Goytisolo, Eduardo Mendoza, and Rosa Montero, the text explores a wide range of selections that trace the development of Spanish literature from tis origins to the present day.
Each Milenio selection was chosen for its literary merits, significance in the history of Spanish literature, and general appeal. The result is an outstanding collection, which includes a number of important women authors, such as the Cancionero poets, Teresa de Á vila, Ana Caro, and Soledad Pué rtolas, as well as works by regional authors, such as the Catalá n poet Pere Gimferrer and the Basque poet Jon Juaristi.
Throughout the text you'll find a number of tools to help make these works highly accessible, including: Introductory Essays, at the opening of each chapter, which highlight important information about the historical and literary movements covered in the chapter. Footnotes, which clarify difficult words, constructions, and geographical and historical terms. Glossary of literary terms, including names of movements, theories, rhetorical devices, poetic meters, locutions, and more. "Temas" or questions for conversation, which encourage analysis, interpretation, and personal reaction. "Sumario" at the end of chapter, which outlines themes for conversation, oral reports, and composition. "Lecturas suplementarias," a selected bibliography for readers embarking on theirown research.
