Spanish Women Writers is a comprehensive collection, initially covering a period from the sixteenth century to 1900. It charts the development of women's writing from predominantly religious works, often written by nuns, to the richly varied output of the nineteenth century.
By bringing these works together it enables researchers to undertake comparative studies with contemporary writers from other countries, to trace the influence of individual writers and the development of particular subjects, and particularly in the nineteenth century, to observe the growth of women's participation in many areas of public life outside the purely literary.
The aim is to republish works which have not been reprinted, using the best editions available.
The collection is based on the holdings of the Biblioteca Nacional.
Dissertations often provide the only information on a particular topic, and surface primary research unavailable in other formats.
Multimedia resources open up new avenues of exploration into a human rights hero’s life and legacy.
