Beyond the Back Room: New Perspectives on Carmen Martín Gaite

Marian Womack (Editor), Jennifer Wood (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited book


This collection of essays examines current trends in scholarly research on Spanish author Carmen Martin Gaite (1925-2000). It concentrates on the least explored areas of Martin Gaite's oeuvre, such as her collage artwork, the relationship between image and text in her work, and her close relationship with themes such as genre writing, the fairy tale, and textual/physical notions of space, as well as her personal theories on orality and narration. As we pass the tenth anniversary of her death, Martin Gaite continues to be an increasing focus of study, as scholars start to identify and comprehend the breadth and scope of her work. The essays in the volume complement previous studies of Martin Gaite's major works from the 1960s and 1970s by focusing largely on her later novels, together with in-depth analysis of the manuscripts and artistic materials that have been made available since her death.
