Throughout its history Spanish literature has been influenced by that of other countries -- Indian and Arabic folk tales, Boccaccio's Decameron, French naturalism, Poe's stories of mystery and horror. But the themes and styles of other writers have been transformed, by the mere fact of having been seen through Spanish eyes, into an expression of the Spanish vision.
