El Exiliado Dentro Del Exilio: La Experiencia De Luis Cernuda En Su Exilio Fuera De Espana, Trevor Martin

Honors Theses

The life experiences and the level to which assimilation is possible following a political exile can be modulated by many factors including the age, gender, ethnicity, religion, political ideologies and sexual orientation of the individual condemned to exile. Whereas, previous academic studies have been devoted to investigating the roles of many of these influences on the experience of exile, the role homosexuality plays has been almost completely neglected in the academic literature. This paper uses the great homosexual poet of The Generation of 27, Luis Cernuda, as a case study to explore the issue of how homosexuality affects the experience ...

A French translation of this poem is could contribute to the wealth of French literature, certainly.

The French surrealist movement ...

The Political Properties: Pro- And Anti-Augustan Readings Of Propertius Book Four, Matthew Angelosanto

Honors Theses

Propertius was a Roman elegist writing during the early years of Augustus’ reign as emperor. His fourth and final book of elegies has long confounded scholars due to its drastic shift in subject matter from love elegy to aetiology. So, too, did the poet’s political stance seem to change: vehemently anti-Augustus in his earlier books, a number of poems in his fourth seem to extol both the sociopolitical climate of Augustan Rome as well as the emperor himself. But should we take the poet’s words at face value? In light of his inexplicable change in political allegiance, this ...
