“The Guide offers the researcher or librarian a valuable reference tool for access to the steadily growing body of reference material available on Spanish language and literature.”
Woodbridge’s annotated bibliography has become the standard for graduate students seeking an introduction to Spanish language and literature studies and for librarians developing reference collections in the field. The second edition contains more than three hundred new entries and updates previous listings. An elaborate table of contents and three indexes will help researchers find needed resources quickly.
The volume selectively lists and describes 1,230 valuable and important reference works published since 1950, including bibliographies, dictionaries, glossaries, concordances, union lists, catalogs, manuals, research guides, and dissertations. A short section on bibliographies covering both literature and language is followed by sections on the Spanish of Spain, American Spanish, Spanish literature of Europe, and Spanish literature of the Western Hemisphere. The guide concludes with an index of authors, editors, compilers, and translators; an index of authors and anonymous works as subjects; and a title index.
