I don't know whether this looks like the first page of a bibliography of a book on Lorca. There is only one study of Lorca listed here, and not a very good one. The bibliography is sort of the foundation for the scholarly work. Everything on a list of works cited, that will end up being about 15 pages, is something that I know well, that I've thought about, that I'm responsible for knowing. Looking at someone's bibliography also gives you an intellectual profile, in a way: this is what I have been reading for the past five years while I developed this project. You can tell things by the average date of publication, or whether there is more material in English than in Spanish. I'm sure I'll works by Andrew Anderson as I move forward, so this will not be the definitive first page. It just gives me an idea of where I'm at.
