Studies in Honor of James O. Crosby
(Juan de la Cuesta, 2004; 397 pp.)

In this collection of essays, eighteen leading scholars in the field examine significant ideological, textual, and aesthetic issues in the works of early modern Spanish authors—among them, Garcilaso, Alemán, Cervantes, Soto de Rojas, Gracián, and Quevedo—from new theoretical and multi-disciplinary perspectives. The volume is offered to James O. Crosby, the most distinguished American specialist in the work of the writer and politician Francisco de Quevedo (1580-1645) during the year of his eightieth birthday, to honor his career as an indefatigable and renowned scholar, whose impact on critical editing of early modern Spanish texts has won recognition in Europe and in the United States. Lía Schwartz is a distinguished professor of Spanish literature in the Ph.D. programs in comparative literature and Spanish and Luso-Brazilian literatures and languages at The Graduate Center; and she is executive officer of the Ph.D. program in Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages.
