Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The English Spanish Girl is a story of how a Spanish girl, Isabel, is kidnapped by an English naval captin on a raid on Cadiz in the late sixteenth century. She is bought up in England as a Catholic and the Captain's son falls in love with her. When Queen Elizabeth I is notified of the proposed marriave, she sends the young man to sea to win his spurs and deserve the hand of lovely Isabel. Successes and disaster follow including a victorious sea-fight, dastardly rivaly, a poisoning and an capture by the Turks until the lovers are united. The Glass Graduate tells the story of a young man of obscure origin, who achieves a University education in the early 17th century. After travels in Italy, he is poisoned by a dubious lady whose love he has disdained. As a result, he goes mad and thinks he is made of glass. Claiming to be both fragile and perceptive he surveys and comments satirically on the society around him. The story reveals something of Cervantes' memories of his own days in Italy, showing his interest in the literary and satirical potential of madness. The Power of Blood is about a rape of a beautiful young girl, Leocadia, by a young nobleman of Toledo, Rodolfo. She returns to her parents and is consoled and given shrewed advice. Rodolfo departs on a lengly visit to Italy, while Leocadia has his child. This boy, Luis is knocked down in the street and rescued by Rodolfo's father who does not know of the crime. This is a myseterious story telling of violation and virtue, forgiveness and hope. Spanish text with facing-page translation, introduction and notes.(
