The culture of cursilería : bad taste, kitsch, and class in modern Spain

Author: Noël Maureen Valis
Publisher: Durham : Duke University Press, 2002.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Like 'kitsch', 'cursi' evokes bad taste, but it also suggests one who has pretensions of refinement and elegance without possessing them. This title examines the social meanings of 'cursi', viewing it as a window into Spanish history and particularly into the development of middle-class culture.
