This volume demonstrates how literary critics seeking to establish a structure for certain works of Spanish literature can classify their symbols according to the first two essays of Northrop Frye's Anatomy of Criticism. The present study essays the method with two episodes from Don Quixote, Lope de Vega's El caballero de Olmedo, Gallego's Oda a la muerte de la Duquesa de Frías, Zorilla's Don Juan Tenorio, Galdós' Torquemada en la hoguera, Clarín's ¡Adiós, Cordera!, Valle-lnclán's Rosarito, and two vignettes from Juan Ramón Jiménez' Platero y yo. "The book under review will be of value to anyone studying the titles listed above. Ullman's interpretations are too powerful to be ignored by any scholar researching a work he studies here."-Stephen Miller, Hispanic Review.
