RESENAS JAVIER KRAUEL. Imperial Emotions. Cultural Responses to Myths of Empire in Fin-De- Siècle Spain. Liverpool: University of Liverpool Press, 2013. 206 pp. Adolfo Campoy-Cubillo Javier Krauel proposes a reading of the classical texts of the Spanish Regenerationist movement that concentrates on the emotional rather than the logical component of each text.
