Spanish Lit Month Links: 7/15-7/21

Thanks again to everybody who's been participating in Spanish Lit Month so far.  I can tell the group's been really active of late because it seems like I've only been around to visit about half of the new posts put up this week--one day, one day.  In any event, here's a list of the week's posts that I know about.  Hope you find some good reading and viewing recommendations among the works reviewed.

  1. we ve had another good week of review richard I thnk we may get near hundred books by the end of the month ,all the best stu

    1. I quite agree, Stu. Hopefully, the enthusiasm will be maintained for this last week of the month b/c it's been fun. Cheers!

  2. This has been going all right, hasn't it? Two readers of La Celestina!

    All next week is Spanish week for me. Maybe longer, who knows?

    1. Tom, yes, I've been very pleasantly surprised by the response--and who could have predicted the Fernando de Rojas revival that we've seen? Enjoying your "Spanish week" posts thus far!

  3. Very impressive! I am reading La universidad desconocida this week (and maybe for the forseeable future) and, while I have not yet written about it much I am getting some nice effect from using Bolaño's images as prompts for some of my own poetry in Spanish and in English.

    1. Thanks, Jeremy--the group has been quite active on the reading front. Haven't read that Bolaño yet, but I'm not surprised it's been idea-worthy. ¡Saludos!
