Crosscurrents: Transatlantic Perspectives on Early Modern Hispanic Drama (Hardcover)
The term 'crosscurrents' seems especially fitting for a volume of essays that explores the cultural exchanges that resulted from the encounter between Spain and the New World. The nautical metaphor alludes to the actual crossing of ships that occurred during the discovery, conquest, and colonization of the Americas by the Spanish as it emphasizes the changes that occurred at these cultural intersections.
