Good Intentions Aren't Enough: Intellectuals And Violence In Luis Goytisolo's Mzungo, Terri Carney Jan 2003

Good Intentions Aren't Enough: Intellectuals And Violence In Luis Goytisolo's Mzungo, Terri Carney

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

In the 1990s Luis Goytisolo explores the possibilities of popular fiction, adapting various genres (travel, mystery, erotic, historical) to accomodate his long-term project of unpacking Western Values. Indeed, Goytisolo’s flirtation with the best-selling genre fiction constitutes a postmodern gesture of “complicitous critique.”For example, in Escalera hacia el cielo (1999) Goytisolo exploits the erotic genre to challenge the traditional paradigm of the dominant male gaze and the objectified female body and to offer instead expressions of mutuality. In Mzungo (1996), Goytisolo engages the travel novel to undermine the culturally dominant position of the white European male who “discovers” an ...

Review Of: Gramática Para La Composición, Joan M. Hoffman

Torn Lace And Other Transformations: Rewriting The Bride's Script In Selected Stories By Emilia Pardo Bazán, Joan M. Hoffman May 1999

Torn Lace And Other Transformations: Rewriting The Bride's Script In Selected Stories By Emilia Pardo Bazán, Joan M. Hoffman

Modern & Classical Languages

In three of her tales—"El encaje roto"( 1897), "Champagne("1898), and "La boda"( 1909), Pardo Bazán presents her readers with a bride on her wedding day; in each case, and each in her own way, the bride breaks with convention and time-honored tradition on this most anticipated day of her life, only to see her life irrevocably altered—not by the marriage—but by her own actions and decisions. The juxtaposition of these three tales with a fourth later one, "La punta del cigarro" (1914), the story of a man in search of a wife wherein a male narrator ...


Hacia Una Estética Del Análisis De Códigos Poéticos, William Martínez Jan 1999

Hacia Una Estética Del Análisis De Códigos Poéticos, William Martínez

World Languages and Cultures

Para explicar el razonamiento que trasfonda el análisis poético, propongo establecer un punto integrativo entre lo teórico y lo práctico. El problema de la relación del lenguaje poético al lenguaje no-poético ha venido a crear dos escuelas opuestas en pensamiento sobre lo que cada una considera como "lenguaje poético." En una, se denota la emotividad del acto poético. El poema difiere de otro tipo de texto en base a la capacidad de extraer emociones de los receptores. En la otra, el poema es visto como un acto comunicativo, donde existe un lector potencial que, dadas todas las circunstancias posibles y ...

Terrorismo Poético: Juan Calzadilla Y Caupolicán Ovalles, William Martínez

World Languages and Cultures

El fervor creado por la destitución del dictador Marcos Pérez Jiménez, en enero de 1958, abrió, para la literatura venezolana un nuevo capítulo, que vendría a tener repercusiones enormes para las subsecuentes generaciones. El temor por las tendencias de izquierda, igual que el beneficio económico por los depósitos de petróleo mantuvieron al sector político más apegado al régimen anterior que a la idea de cambio.

A Reappraisal Of The Correpondence Of Violant De Bar, Dawn Bratsch-Prince Jan 1994

A Reappraisal Of The Correpondence Of Violant De Bar, Dawn Bratsch-Prince

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Notarial documents are an indispensible resource for the history of culture, politics, and literature, because they are free from much of the social and cultural prejudices that color many literary texts. As the Spanish literary critic, Maria Eugenia Lacarra, rightly states in a recent article on feminist approaches to medieval Spanish history and literature «It is unfortunate that notarial documents, which are the least ideologically contaminated sources and therefore the most reliable, have been least studied [by literary historians]» (r988, r4). Precisely because this type of source material helps the critic see past culturally propagated misrepresentations of reality, Lacarra advocates ...
