Cuervo, R. J., Lecciones de Literatura Espanola por James Fitzmaurice-Kelly (Book Review)

Rennert, Hugo A.

There can be no better evidence of the high esteem in which Professor Fitzmaurice-Kelly's work, Chapters on Spanish Literature (London, Archibald Constable and Company, 1908) is held by scholars in Spain than the fact that within so short a time of its publication a Spanish translation should be demanded. In his introduction, the distinguished philologist, D. Rufino José Cuervo, alluding to the well-known competency of Prof. Fitzmaurice-Kelly in all matters relating to the literature of Spain, remarks that the opinions of a foreigner are always of particular interest inasmuch as the difference of atmosphere and of studies produces a different point of view, from which peculiarities are often observed which remain hidden from the native.
