Elizabeth Lewis’ Articles Republished on Cervantes Virtual

Elizabeth Franklin Lewis

Elizabeth Franklin Lewis

Three articles previously published by Professor of Spanish Elizabeth Lewis on the late-Enlightenment dramatist María Rosa Gálvez were included in a new digital collection of the author’s life and work. The collection, edited by Helena Establier of the University of Alicante, Spain, is one of the newest additions to the Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes, the most extensive collection of digital texts in Spanish. Two of the articles–”Breaking Chains: Language and Slavery in María Rosa Gálvez’s Zinda (1804).” Dieciocho.  20.2(Fall 1997)  and  “The Tearful Reunion of Divided Femininity in María Rosa Gálvez’s Neoclassic Theater.”Letras Peninsulares.  9.2(Fall 1996)—represent some of the earliest published studies on Gálvez. The third–“Crying Out for Feminine (Un)Happiness: María Rosa Gálvez’s Search For Sapphic Immortality”–was a chapter taken from Professor Lewis’s 2004 book Women Writers in the Spanish Enlightenment: The Pursuit of Happiness.  Aldershot, Hants, England and Burlington, Vt.: Ashgate Publishers.
