Review Of: Galdos Beyond Realism: Reading And The Creation Of Magical Worlds, Joan M. Hoffman May 2006

Review Of: Galdos Beyond Realism: Reading And The Creation Of Magical Worlds, Joan M. Hoffman

Modern & Classical Languages

Timothy McGovern's latest offering, Galdós Beyond Realism: Reading and the Creation of Magical Worlds, may prove surprising, if not a bit unsettling, for the die-hard, skeptical fan of Spanish High Realism who can not imagine the words "Galdós" and "magical worlds" in the same sentence. Nonetheless, McGovern presents a fascinating examination of what he terms Don Benito's "magical fictions" (7). He jostles us out of our comfort zone, examining "post-realist, non-realist, or magical" Galdosian works that push the limits of traditional realism through the employment of metafictional and magical frames, supernatural interventions, and a very conscious ...


Processing Instruction And Meaningful Output-Based Instruction: Effects On Second Language Development, Kara Morgan-Short, Harriet Bowden Feb 2006

Processing Instruction And Meaningful Output-Based Instruction: Effects On Second Language Development, Kara Morgan-Short, Harriet Bowden

Harriet Wood Bowden

This study investigates the effects of meaningful input- and output-based practice on SLA. First-semester Spanish students (n = 45) were assigned to processing instruction, meaningful output-based instruction, or control groups. Experimental groups received the same input in instruction but received meaningful practice that was input or output based. Both experimental groups showed significant gains on immediate and delayed interpretation and production tasks. Repeated-measures analyses of variance showed that overall, for interpretation, both experimental groups outperformed the control group. For production, only the meaningful output-based group outperformed the control group. These results suggest that not only input-based but also output-based instruction can ...

Review Of Colonial Encounters In New World Writing, 1500-1786. Performing America., Gladys A. Robalino Jan 2006

Review Of Colonial Encounters In New World Writing, 1500-1786. Performing America., Gladys A. Robalino

Educator Scholarship

Performing America es un ambicioso trabajo que cubre de manera muy amplia tres siglos de literatura colonial en las Américas. El enfoque principal es el estudio de textos coloniales considerados por la autora como polifónicos (dentro de los géneros teatrales y parateatrales) en los que analiza las maneras en que escritores europeos e indígenas representan sus interacciones. Para Castillo, el encuentro de estas dos cosmovisiones epistemológicamente divergentes habría dado lugar a ciertas estrategias de integración escrituraria de la alteridad americana; en otras palabras, en dichos textos habría el intento de crear una coexistencia harmónica, o por lo menos canales para ...

Novela Negra, Modernismo Y Revolución En Sombra De La Sombra, De Paco Ignacio Taibo Ii, Luis Cano Dec 2005

Novela Negra, Modernismo Y Revolución En Sombra De La Sombra, De Paco Ignacio Taibo Ii, Luis Cano

Luis C. Cano

El presente artículo analiza la forma en que Paco Ignacio Taibo II recurre a la novela negra para efectuar un análisis del contexto histórico y cultural en el que se sitúa su obra Sombra de la sombra. Apoyándose en lo que denomina «neopolicíaco», Taibo efectúa una evaluación de conceptos como ética, intelectualidad y aparato estatal, y del impacto que las escrituras del modernismo y de la revolución mexicana tuvieron en la formación del México moderno.
