(p.1) Introduction: Emotions, Empire, and the Tradition of the National Essay
Imperial Emotions

Javier Krauel

Liverpool University Press

The introduction clarifies the terms of the discussion about the emotional attachments to Spain’s imperial past present in the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century national imaginaries. It argues that the Spanish Empire was an overdetermined cultural emblem with an ambivalent presence in the turn-of-the-century cultural scene, and it suggests that such emblem was the object of a number of contradictory emotions that have gone largely unnoticed. It also claims that the essay, because of its generic and rhetorical particularities, is a genre distinctly suited for understanding how empire became an object of national emotions (as opposed to national affects).
