They are now published exactly as they were given. In them my aim is to afford a survey of certain important currents running through the history of Spanish literature as written in the motherland, and to call attention to the great worth of the literature produced by writers in Spanish America. I have sought to be informative as to a large body of fact rather than exhaustively analytical with respect to any subject of limited scope. J. D. M. F. April, 1919. CONTENTS PAGE I.
