Abstract:

"Exceptional Crime in Early Modern Spain accounts for the representation of violent and complex murders, analysing the role of the criminal, its portrayal through rhetorical devices, and its cultural and aesthetic impact.

These accounts aim at bewildering and shocking demanding readers through a carefully displayed cult to excessive behaviour. The arranged 'economy of death' displayed in murder accounts will set them apart from other exceptional instances, as proven by their long-standing presence in subsequent centuries"--
