The Edwardians and the Making of a Modern Spanish Obsession

Kirsty Hooper

Liverpool University Press

  • The first book to explore the intense Edwardian fascination with Spain
  • Draws on a huge range of primary source material from Britain and Spain to develop a detailed picture of cultural representation, exchange and encounter not only in London but through the United Kingdom, and not only among the elites but at all levels of society
  • Reveals the extent to which Edwardian knowledge about Spain was shaped by connections between commerce, colonialism and culture
  • Uncovers the previously unseen diversity of Edwardian knowledge of Spain's co-existing regions, languages and cultures
  • Recovers the work of Edwardian experts, male and female, whose contribution to our knowledge of Spain and its cultures has gone unseen
