Reseña del editor:

In Self-Fashioning and Assumptions of Identity in Medieval and Early Modern Iberia, editor Laura Delbrugge and contributors Jaume Aurell, David Gugel, Michael Harney, Daniel Hartnett, Mark Johnston, Albert Lloret, Montserrat Piera, Zita Rohr, Nuria Silleras-Fernandez, Caroline Smith, Wendell P. Smith, and Lesley Twomey explore the applicability of Stephen Greenblatt's self-fashioning theory, framed in Elizabethan England, to medieval and early modern Portugal, Aragon, and Castile. Chapters examine self-fashioning efforts by monarchs, religious converts, nobles, commoners, and clergy in the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries to establish the presence of self-identity creation in many new contexts beyond that explored in Greenblatt's Renaissance Self-Fashioning, greatly expanding the understanding of self-fashioning on diverse aspects of identity creation in late medieval and early modern Iberia.

Críticas:

..".These elegantly written essays, solidly grounded in empirical research and skillfully edited by Laura Delbrugge, test the boundaries of the concept of "self-fashioning" and show it to be a remarkably malleable and useful methodology for the study of identity... It opens the field of research to wider questions of race, gender, and class and in so doing, further integrates the Spanish renaissance into a wider European context.... All twelve essays argue a coherent thesis: Self-fashioning is the result of individual agency, conscious or unconscious, and not just the result of social or structural forces..."
