Review Of Jean-Pierre Lecercle, Mallarmé Et La Mode, Marshall C. Olds Dec 1991

Review Of Jean-Pierre Lecercle, Mallarmé Et La Mode, Marshall C. Olds

French Language and Literature Papers

Mallarmé et la mode is clearly a fundamental contribution to the literature surrounding La Derniére mode. Yet the book's importance goes beyond its stated subject because, quite simply, La Derniére mode is more than an isolated instance of mediocrity. The project was interrupted too early to have acquired a unique character and its editorial devenir has yet to be established. Moreover, following on the heals of “Toast funebre," the magazine helped inaugurate Mallarme's arrival in Paris and the widening of interests that would have a profound effect on his poetry. Under the spell of Mallarme himself in a ...

The Interlanguage Of Advanced Speakers: Implications & Suggestions, Madeline Garr

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

This thesis details a study of the interlanguage of advanced speakers of English as a Second Language. The purpose of the study was to see what errors these students made when speaking the language in a communicative environment. In approaching the issue of interlanguage, the writer surveys the research in language acquisition as well as in interlanguage, error analysis and language learning theories. Based on this research and the results of this study, the writer explores the implications of both the research and the study and offers suggestions to teachers of advanced conversation classes.


Review Of Axel Kuhn, Et Al., Revolutionsbegeisterung An Der Hohen Carlsschule, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Apr 1991

Review Of Axel Kuhn, Et Al., Revolutionsbegeisterung An Der Hohen Carlsschule, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

In the last twenty years a number of scholars have discovered growing evidence for revolutionary sympathy and activity among German intellectuals living during the French Revolution. Axel Kuhn, historian at the Technische Hochschule in Stuttgart, has contributed to this body of research with his study of the Hohe Carlsschule, the military academy founded in Stuttgart by Duke Carl Eugen of Württemberg, famous for its oppressively strict discipline and its exceptionally talented students, including Friedrich Schiller. As Kuhn says, the book is written in the form of a detective novel, and relates how he went about uncovering and piecing together the ...

Till Eulenspiegel's Transgressions Against Convention: Interpreting The Parasite, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Jan 1991

Till Eulenspiegel's Transgressions Against Convention: Interpreting The Parasite, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

Till is the projection of anxieties arising in the face of social instability. Bote, who was witness to just how fragile the given order of patrician rule in Brunswick was, was sensible both to its weaknesses and to its preferability to disorder. The shifting locus of perverseness in TE provides an adequate structure for Bote, who is critical of his society, but uneasy about the forces threatening to tear it apart altogether. The violability of the order is so profound, that at times there seems to be no position which can be defended against parasitic infection. Bote’s admonitory intention ...

Pyrame And Thisbé: Lost In A "Minimalist" World, Nina Ekstein Jan 1991

Pyrame And Thisbé: Lost In A "Minimalist" World, Nina Ekstein

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

Discussions of Les Amours tragiques de Pyrame et Thisbé generally center on the eponymous couple. Young star-crossed lovers, opposed by all who surround them, doomed to death, Pyrame and Thisbé belong to a long tradition in Western literature. What I believe merits greater attention is the dramatic world in which the lovers' tragedy unfolds. The young couple occupies the center of the play, but Thisbé and Pyrame seem curiously out of place in, and at odds with, their environment in all its particulars, from characters to objects to scenic space. The two characters are lost in the dramatic universe of ...


"¿Y Sois Hombre O Sois Mujer?": Sex And Gender In Tirso’S Don Gil De Las Calzas Verdes, Matthew D. Stroud Jan 1991

"¿Y Sois Hombre O Sois Mujer?": Sex And Gender In Tirso’S Don Gil De Las Calzas Verdes, Matthew D. Stroud

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

When Henry Sullivan opened the question of the insight that the writings of Jacques Lacan could bring to the comedia, he came somewhat early on to Tirso's magisterial comedia de enredo [comedy of intrigue and deception], Don Gil de las calzas verdes. As with most things Lacanian, his paper, "The Sexual Ambiguities of Tirso de Molina's Don Gil de las calzas verdes," is not easily accessible, having been published in the Proceedings of the Third Annual Golden Age Drama Symposium in El Paso, Texas. It is an important contribution to Tirsian studies, however, and he identifies three themes ...


Clotaldo's Daughter, Matthew D. Stroud Jan 1991

Clotaldo's Daughter, Matthew D. Stroud

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

With respect to the fictional father, Robert Con Davis (3) has noted (1) that the question of the father in fiction, in whatever guise, is essentially one of father absence; (2) that each manifestation of the father in a text is a refinding of an absent father; (3) and that the father's origin is to be found in the trace of his absence. Calderón's masterpiece, Life Is a Dream, is the parallel story of two people's searches for their fathers and the consequences both of not knowing who they are at the beginning and of their finding ...
