The Hispanic World and American Intellectual Life, 1820-1880 Paperback
by Ivan Jaksic
Part of the Studies of the Americas series
This book examines why several American literary and intellectual icons became pioneering scholars of the Hispanic world after Independence and the War 1812.
At this crucial time for the young republic, these gifted Americans found inspiration in an unlikely place: the collapsing Spanish empire and used it to shape their own country's identity.
