The Biblical Ruth As Dama Principal: Tirso’S La Mejor Espigadera, Matthew D. Stroud 2012 Trinity University

The Biblical Ruth As Dama Principal: Tirso’S La Mejor Espigadera, Matthew D. Stroud

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

The comedia mined a variety of source texts for its plots—Italian novelle, Spanish history, Greek and Roman mythology, and, of course, the Bible—but always managed to adapt plot, setting, and characters to the conventions of the Spanish national theater. This process offered great benefits, such as audience familiarity, as well as challenges, including inherent and unavoidable limitations on artistic freedom. One of the more interesting adaptations is Tirso de Molina’s reworking of the Biblical story of Ruth in La mejor espigadera, primarily because of the lack of dramatic potential offered by the original: there are no villains ...


Dying For The Nation: Rite Of Passage, Homoeroticism And Martyrdom In The Falangist Narrative During The Spanish Civil War, Iker González-Allende 2012 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Dying For The Nation: Rite Of Passage, Homoeroticism And Martyrdom In The Falangist Narrative During The Spanish Civil War, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Eugenio o proclamación de la Primavera (1938) by Rafael García Serrano, and Unificación (1937) by Jacinto Miquelarena are two propagandistic works in which the male protagonists most fully embody the core values of Falangist masculinity. The glorification of youth appears clearly in the two texts, along with an emphasis on violence. War becomes the rite of passage for the two male protagonists, who also renounce romantic relationships to devote themselves to the nation. The two main characters find in their fellow comrades a substitute for their families; in this sense, the nation is constructed as a masculine project. The presence ...

The Tales Of The Grimm Brothers In Colombia: Introduction, Dissemination, And Reception, Alexandra Michaelis-Vultorius 2012 Wayne State University

The Tales Of The Grimm Brothers In Colombia: Introduction, Dissemination, And Reception, Alexandra Michaelis-Vultorius

Wayne State University Dissertations

The Grimms' Kinder- und Hausmärchen or Children's and Household Tales are probably the best-known written collection of folk tales worldwide. The reception of the stories, however, varies greatly both at an individual and at a collective level. Several studies have examined the reception of the tales in Europe, Asia, and North America, but so far no broad-based study exists for Latin America. This dissertation fills this gap by examining the introduction, propagation, translations, and reception of the Grimm tales in Colombia.

Paratexts To Frida Kahlo's Oeuvre: The Relationship Between The Visual And The Textual, The Self And The Other, From The Self-Portraits To The Diary Entries, Levilson C. Reis 2012 Otterbein University

Paratexts To Frida Kahlo's Oeuvre: The Relationship Between The Visual And The Textual, The Self And The Other, From The Self-Portraits To The Diary Entries, Levilson C. Reis

Modern Languages & Cultures Faculty Scholarship

This article examines the relationship between the visual and the textual in Frida Kahlo’s paintings and writings. It argues that an understanding of this relationship would offer a better picture of Kahlo’s oeuvre. The article begins with an examination of the dedicatory inscriptions in the self-portraits, engaging with Gérard Genette’s concept of paratext and Philippe Lejeune’s autobiographical pact, as a prelude to the study of the relationship between text and drawings in the diary. In a close reading of the diary, informed by Jacques Lacan’s theories of subject formation and object relations, the article goes ...

Women’S Exile And Transatlantic Epistolary Ties In The Work Of Pilar De Zubiaurre, Iker González-Allende 2012 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Women’S Exile And Transatlantic Epistolary Ties In The Work Of Pilar De Zubiaurre, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

In this essay, I analyze Pilar de Zubiaurre’s experience of exile by focusing on the articles she published in the magazine Euzko Deya and the letters she wrote and received in Mexico. Among the letters Zubiaurre received, I study those from María Martos de Baeza. My main argument is that for Zubiaurre, writing became a fundamental way to cultivate her transnational contacts and build bridges across the Atlantic. Through her articles, she travels back home in her imagination, while through her letters she connects as directly as possible with her native country. Both kinds of writing have positive consequences ...

An Experimental Study Of Early L3 Development: Age, Bilinguialism And Classroom Exposure, Catherine Stafford, Chrstina Stanz, Harriet Bowden 2011 University of Wisconsin - Madison

An Experimental Study Of Early L3 Development: Age, Bilinguialism And Classroom Exposure, Catherine Stafford, Chrstina Stanz, Harriet Bowden

Harriet Wood Bowden

This research investigated Spanish–English bilingual adults' initial learning of a third language (L3), Latin, comparing the learning processes and outcomes of early- and late-onset bilinguals. Thirty-three participants were classified as Early or Late Bilinguals according to their age of arrival to the USA, and they were introduced to Latin by means of an interactive computer programme that provided grammar explanation, input-based practice and explicit feedback. Results indicated that (1) overall, the two groups garnered similar benefits from the instructional treatment; (2) the Late Bilinguals maintained improvements in accurately marking noun case morphology in L3 production somewhat better than Early ...
