The Siege of Valencia: A Parallel Text Edition
Broadview Press, 2002 M09 19 - 315 pages
This parallel text edition of Felicia Hemansís important dramatic poem presents the 1823 publication alongside a transcription of the original manuscript, offering a unique glimpse at her compositional process. Situated in medieval Spain, in the heat of Moorish-Christian conflicts, this complex political tragedy is both a rich historical narrative and a commentary by the poet on her own post-Napoleonic world.
The Broadview edition also includes selections of related poetry, excerpts from source texts, and contemporary reviews.
