Falcon y Tella's New Book on Law and Literature (Brill, 2016).


María José Falcón y Tella, Professor of Legal Philosophy, Complutense University of Madrid, has published Law and Literature (Brill, 2016). Here is a description of the book's contents.
There are many ways to approach the concept of “Law and Literature”. In the classical manner, the author distinguishes three paths: the Law of Literature, involving a technical approach to the literary theme; Law as Literature, a hermeneutical and rhetorical approach to examining legal texts; and finally, Law in Literature, which is undoubtedly the most fertile and documented perspective (the fundamental part of the work focusses on this direction). This timely volume offers an introduction to this enormous field of study, which was born in the United States over a century ago and is currently taking root in the European continent.
