About this book

This multidisciplinary study focuses on the creative state as the nucleus of the work of numerous poets, artists, and philosophers from twentieth-century Spain. Beginning with cognitive science, Gala explores the mental processes and structures that underline creative thinking, for poets like José María Hinojosa, Clara Janés, and Jorge Guillén.

Reviews

“Candelas Gala, Charles E. Taylor Professor of Romance Languages at Wake Forest University, offers in this book a new instance of her long research engagement with the connections between twentieth century Spanish poetry, art, and science. … Gala’s book is a powerful reminder, in these dire times of the dismissal of the humanities, that art is a unique and irreplaceable form of knowledge.” (Juan Herrero-Senés, Studies in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Literature, newprairiepress.org, June, 2017) 


"This book by Candelas Gala represents an apex in the field of Hispanic studies. Few researchers have even attempted, within a demarcated field, such an encompassing project as this book carries out. Its pages, one after another, lead us to the conviction that we are before an intelligence that is exceptional as well as dazzling. The author's capacity to delve deeply and analyze each theme of her research, and to carry each facet to its farthest consequences, makes this book obvious food for the most demanding intellectual appetites." - Clara Janés, world-renowned poet of Arcángel de sombra
