Books By & About Individual Spanish Literary Authors

To find novels and other literary works in book format by Spanish authors do an AUTHOR search in the Library catalog under the author's name. 

To find books in the Library catalog about an author, do a SUBJECT search under author's name.   Note that results of subject searches are often clustered into subtopics to provide an easier oversight of the results.   Note the subtopic "Criticism and interpretation" is often particularly helpful. Also use the resources listed in "Journal article indexes and databases" section of this guide (see below) to find additional information about an author and his/her work.

Translations of Spanish Literary Works

English language translations of Spanish  titles can be found in the Library catalog under the English title.   If you do not know the title of the English translation, do a title search under the Spanish title to determine whether the Library has the English translation.   For example:

Maestro de esgrima by Spanish author, Arturo Perez-Reverte has been translated into English with the title The Fencing master.  A title search either under The Fencing master or  Maestro de esgrima lets you determine whether the Library has the English translation.
