"Professor Boyer makes it possible for Hispanists to share the flavor as well as the lively substance of Maria de Zayas's writing with colleagues interested in the history of the novel and the representation of women in early modern Europe. . . . The style of the original is characteristically clear and lively. The translation conveys its tone remarkably well. . . . These novellas are of primary importance to an understanding of the evolving structures of narrative."--Emilie Bergmann, University of California, Berkeley
