Poetic Castles in Spain: British Romanticism and Figurations of Iberia

Etukansi
Rodopi, 2000 - 355 sivua
Saglia, a scholar of some sort whose academic affiliations are not noted, charts the various ways in which, between the 1810s and 1820s, Spain figured in British literary culture. Mainly concerned with narrative versions of Spain, specifically metrical tales and verse romances, he traces the contours of the Spanish "imaginary" in British Romanticism, offering a cultural geography of Romantic Spain as a space of war involving not only France and Britain or the Spanish and Moorish armies, but ideological conflicts between public and private; republicanism, nationalism, and imperialism; and competing models of masculinity and femininity.

Sivu 18 - Allowing for register as well, there is still far too much opportunity for choice in the model, and the principle of idiom is put forward to account for the restraints that are not captured by the open choice model. The principle of idiom is that a language user has available to him or her a large number of semi-preconstructed phrases that constitute single choices, even though they might appear to be analysable into segments.
