This project would have never been a reality if it wasn’t for the continuous support and encouragement I received from day one from my advisor, Andrew Monnickendam, and the wonderful staff at UAB’s Biblioteca d’Humanitats: Mercè Bausili, Nuria Gallart, Ana Escañuela, and Marta Rial; thanks also to Cristina Azorín at the Unitat Tècnica i de Projectes del Servei de Biblioteques. Special thanks to Ferran Jorba, the IT guy at the Servei d’Informàtica who tirelessly and nonchalantly processed all the data in record time. Not only that, he read some of the digitized poems and thoroughly enjoyed them. As we say here in Spain, “así da gusto trabajar”. Indeed!
Last but not least, thank you Christa Malone for greenlighting this project.
