Ramón Menéndez Pidal: The Practice and Politics of Philology in Twentieth-Century Spain. Newark: Juan de la Cuesta, 2014. 385 pp. ISBN: 978-1-58871-252-3 Hess' Ramón Menéndez Pidal: The Practice and Politics of Philology in TwentiethCentury Spain (hereafter Practice and Politics) captures the many facets of the scholarly trajectory of one of Hispanism's most influential figures: Ramón Menéndez Pidal. By relating political moves in Spain's academic spheres to larger political phenomena, this book situates Menéndez Pidal's scholarship within the context of a changing political environment, from the Spanish-American war to the Franco regime. From Hess' latest research on Don Ramón an interesting (and previously unknown) fact emerges: from 1940-1944 the Tribunal de Responsabilidades Políticas excluded the aging scholar from all Spanish institutions except the Royal Academy. This thought-provoking and well-organized monograph provides a comprehensive biography of Don Ramón (Chapter 1), as well as a detailed synopsis of the many contributions made by the maestro's scholarship to the fields of Romance linguistics (Chapter 2) and medieval literature (Chapter 3). His particular, Castilian-centered way of interpreting Spanish history during his productive career is also addressed (Chapter 4), as well as his role in the Generation of 1898 (Chapter 5) http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png La corónica: A Journal of Medieval Hispanic Languages, Literatures, and Cultures La corónica: Journal of Medieval Hispanic Languages, Literatures & Culture
