Abstract

This article explores ironic and dissociative devices in the poetry of Rosalía de Castro, as one of the means by which the poet tempers the intimate, frequently sentimental tone of her work. After a brief review of literary theories of irony, elements of Castro's work discussed include ironic discourse in her introduction to Cantares galegos, multiple subjective stances in the first section of Follas novas, and the ironic twists in several poems from En las orillas del Sar.
