Lesbians in Early Modern Spain Hardcover – May 1, 2011
"Lesbians in Early Modern Spain brings Hispanic 'queer' studies out of the late twentieth-century realm of speculative interpretation of canonical literary texts by analyzing narratives presented in historical documents. Velasco presents a richly contextualized guide to interpretation, not only to the encodings of same-sex desire but to the ways in which this desire was understood morally, socially, and juridically. Her lucid, engaging style makes this study accessible to the widest possible range of scholars and students."
--Emilie L. Bergmann, University of California-Berkeley
"Velasco brings together all the pertinent subtopics related to the question of feminine homoerotic desire in a single, superbly readable book"
" --Lou Charnon-Deutsch, State University of New York-Stony Brook
