Reseña De Esa Pareja Feliz: Toma De Conciencia, Oscar Pereira Zazo, Lola Lorenzo Apr 2009

Reseña De Esa Pareja Feliz: Toma De Conciencia, Oscar Pereira Zazo, Lola Lorenzo

Spanish Language and Literature

“No firmaré jamás, jamás…,” grita una reina loca en una película, según veremos, de pacotilla. La actriz, que recula, se confunde de almena y cae estruendosamente al vacío rompiendo un arco voltaico que los eléctricos no podrán sustituir. Medios escasos para intenciones sublimes. Asistimos, pues, al rodaje de una película histórica; posiblemente, un drama de honor muy del gusto de la España autárquica de los años más negros de la dictadura franquista. Entre los presentes se encuentra nuestro protagonista, Juan (Fernando Fernán Gómez), que se afana como electricista y en lo que se ofrezca en la magnífica producción para mayor ...


Reseña De El Verdugo: Acerca De La Felicidad Y De La Inercia De Las Cosas, Oscar Pereira Zazo Apr 2009

Reseña De El Verdugo: Acerca De La Felicidad Y De La Inercia De Las Cosas, Oscar Pereira Zazo

Spanish Language and Literature

La vida es una tómbola. Si no que se lo digan a José Luis Rodríguez, el héroe, que no lo quiere ser, de nuestra película. En realidad lo que José Luis quiere es irse a Alemania para aprender mecánica y tener un trabajo respetable. Pero ya se sabe que las cosas no siempre salen a satisfacción de todos, porque como dice el refrán, el hombre propone, Dios dispone y el destino impone.

Representaciones De La Memoria De La Guerrilla Antifranquista En La Novelística Española Contemporánea, Nuño Castellanos Apr 2009

Representaciones De La Memoria De La Guerrilla Antifranquista En La Novelística Española Contemporánea, Nuño Castellanos

Dissertations

In the last few years a very controversial concept known as "the recovery of historic memory" has become of utmost importance in certain social and political spheres in Spain. This matter has been addressed by a law approved in July of 2006 during the socialist government under Rodríguez Zapatero. This law recognizes the efforts of those who in 1936 defended the Republican democracy, those who were persecuted by Franco regime and suffered internal and external exile, and those who fought against dictatorship and in defense of the fundamental liberties that Spaniards enjoy today. This complicated process of memory recuperation ...

Review Of: Épocas Y Avances: Lengua En Su Contexto Cultural, And Cuaderno De Trabajo To Accompany 'Épocas Y Avances: Lengua En Su Contexto Cultural', Joan M. Hoffman

Modern & Classical Languages

In the "Preface" to this, the first edition of Épocas y avances: Lengua en su contexto cultural, the authors immediately state the goal and scope of the text: "Designed to present a broad spectrum of content-rich materials for the study of language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world, Épocas y avances offers a communicative-humanistic approach to second language acquisition." . The accompanying Cuaderno de trabajo is equally well contextualized and includes an audio CD for oral practice.

Carlos Fuente's "The Two Shores": Between Counterfactualism And Cultural Allegory, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas Jan 2009

Carlos Fuente's "The Two Shores": Between Counterfactualism And Cultural Allegory, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas

Modern Languages & Literature

A literary criticism of the short story "The Two Shores," which appeared in the 1992 book "The Orange Tree," by Carlos Fuentes. The plot and characters of the story are described, particularly the narrator, Jerónimo de Aguilar, a dead man who was held captive by the Mayans. The story is a contribution to the reconsideration of the Spanish conquest of the Americas, particularly Mexico. The idea that the story may present a counterfactual historiography, an idea created by critic Niall Ferguson, is considered.


La (Des) Pluralización Del Verbo Haber Existencial En El Español Salvadoreño: ¿Un Cambio En Progreso?, Alexander Quintanilla Jan 2009

La (Des) Pluralización Del Verbo Haber Existencial En El Español Salvadoreño: ¿Un Cambio En Progreso?, Alexander Quintanilla

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

This study analyzes the pluralization of the verb haber in Salvadoran Spanish. Spanish uses the verb haber ‘to have’ for existential sentences. According to traditional grammars, existential sentences with haber are impersonal, that is, they are conjugated only in the third-person singular. However, it is common in most Spanish varieties to conjugate haber in the plural when the nominal phrase is plural.

Recent studies have suggested that the pluralization of haber is an innovation in modern Spanish and that it is advancing from lower to higher classes. My study shows that on the contrary there is little evidence indicating that ...
