«L’Arbre» De Gabrielle Roy: Une Hirondelle D’Hiver Dans Un Chêne Vert De Floride, Thomas M. Carr Jr. Oct 2005

«L’Arbre» De Gabrielle Roy: Une Hirondelle D’Hiver Dans Un Chêne Vert De Floride, Thomas M. Carr Jr.

French Language and Literature Papers

On connaît bien les voyages de Gabrielle Roy au Manitoba pour rendre visite à sa famille et ses séjours à Petite-Rivière-Saint-François dans Charlevoix. C’est seulement depuis la publication de ses lettres à son mari qu’on commence à mieux apprécier ses séjours en Floride dans les années cinquante et soixante. Au moins une nouvelle, écrite semble-t-il en Floride en 1967-1968, s’inspire de ces voyages, mais puisqu’elle n’a été reprise dans aucun recueil, elle reste mal connue. Elle n’a généralement été étudiée que dans le cadre du symbolisme du monde naturel chez Roy (Gagné, 1973; Harvey ...


Review Of Jean-Nicolas Illouz, Le Symbolisme, Marshall C. Olds Oct 2005

Review Of Jean-Nicolas Illouz, Le Symbolisme, Marshall C. Olds

French Language and Literature Papers

As emphases in literary studies have shifted away from structuralist, semiotic, and other modes of reading informed by theory toward historically-oriented esthetic and cultural analysis, we have needed a new examination of Symbolism that would account for its complexities both as a literary and artistic movement and as a “compound moment” in literary and cultural history. Jean-Nicolas Illouz has provided the foundation for such a reexamination. His study is, to my knowledge, the most complete and nuanced overview of the movement that we have, bringing together in a historically informed and carefully researched reading of Symbolism as both the point ...

The Odd Man Out: The Kings In Corneille's Machine Plays, Nina Ekstein Oct 2005

The Odd Man Out: The Kings In Corneille's Machine Plays, Nina Ekstein

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

Andromède and La Conquête de la Toison d’or have a largely unenviable status in Corneille’s oeuvre. They are often either dismissed or marginalized, and almost inevitably read as different from, and therefore inferior to, the more canonical Cornelian works. In fact, both plays are richer and more interesting than commonly thought, as I hope to suggest by an examination of the curious and curiously similar role of the king.

Helga Novak (1935-), Amy Kepple Strawser

This article presents a profile of German-speaking novelist and poet Helga Novak. Novak's poems are often written in the form of ballads which include themes of violence against those who have found themselves on the margins of society. Besides her native Germany, Helga Novak has lived in Iceland and Poland and has won numerous literary awards.

Wo Liegt Die Grenze? Aspekt, Aktionsart Und Verwandte Phanomene In Der Erforschung Der Deutschen Sprache, Maria Gallmeier Aug 2005

Wo Liegt Die Grenze? Aspekt, Aktionsart Und Verwandte Phanomene In Der Erforschung Der Deutschen Sprache, Maria Gallmeier

Doctoral Dissertations

In 1824, Jacob Grimm first used the terms perfective and imperfective to describe the German verbal system and initiated the discussion of the aspecto-actional meaning in such pairs as jagen : erjagen. Since then, German research has frequently failed to define aspectological terms and categories unambiguously.

This study examines the status of German aspectological research, with special reference to the boundary between the categories Aspekt and Aktionsart. For background, this dissertation successively examines early German aspectological research (1824 to 1930), landmark German grammars, German aspectological research since 1970, cross-linguistic aspectological research in the Slavic and Anglo-American traditions with regard to these ...


'Black Atlantic' Cultural Politics As Reflected In Panamanian Literature, Sonja Stephenson Watson Aug 2005

'Black Atlantic' Cultural Politics As Reflected In Panamanian Literature, Sonja Stephenson Watson

Doctoral Dissertations

The diaspora experience is characterized by hybridity, diversity and above all, difference. The nature of the diaspora experience therefore precludes an exclusive articulation of identity. Black identity in Panama is one characterized by this same multiplicity. My dissertation examines race, culture, and ethnicity in the development of Panamanian national identity and is informed by the critical theories of Paul Gilroy, Stuart Hall, and Frantz Fanon. The articulation of Afro-Panamanian identity is both intriguing and complex because there are two groups of blacks on the Isthmus: Spanish speaking blacks who arrived as a result of slavery (15th -18th centuries) and English ...

Recuperando A Los Peron: Posmodemidad E Intertextualidad En Dos Obras De Tomas Eloy Martinez, Jose D. Minay Aug 2005

Recuperando A Los Peron: Posmodemidad E Intertextualidad En Dos Obras De Tomas Eloy Martinez, Jose D. Minay

Doctoral Dissertations

Recent history has been the central theme of Argentinean writer Tomas Eloy Martinez. In his two most recognized novels, La novela de Peron (1985) and Santa Evita (1995), he revisits the Peronist period in Argentinean history and attempts to re-write and re-signify traditional accounts of that history while presenting what he hopes is a more balanced interpretation of the Perons and their place in the nation's history.

The present dissertation analyses how Martinez uses numerous postmodern narrative strategies such as metafiction, parody, and intertextuality to carry out his revisionist project in the above-mentioned novels. As a point of departure ...


Beauty In Bastardy? Breytenbach On Afrikaans And The Afrikaners, Brian G. Kennelly Jul 2005

Beauty In Bastardy? Breytenbach On Afrikaans And The Afrikaners, Brian G. Kennelly

World Languages and Cultures

Throughout the twentieth century activists in South Africa for the Afrikaans language struggled with, yet never resolved, the language/people, Afrikaans/Afrikaner issue, as Hermann Giliomee points out in his recent ‘biography’ of the Afrikaners (2003, 389). Was the Afrikaner community a racial or linguistic one? Was the push to promote Afrikaans subordinate to the entrenchment of a white supremacist government and ruling party? Was there a hegemonic or counter-hegemonic relationship between language and ethnicity? If the social identity of the Afrikaner was to be shaped by the acceptance of Afrikaans as a public language on equal footing with English ...


Going Through The Trash: Meaning In The Cabaret And Cabinet Baroque Lyric, Russell J. Ganim Jun 2005

Going Through The Trash: Meaning In The Cabaret And Cabinet Baroque Lyric, Russell J. Ganim

Faculty Publications - Modern Languages and Literatures

Joan DeJean's recent book, The Reinvention of Obscenity, brings front and center issues of filth and impiety as they relate to cultural norms. DeJean's assertion that "Paris was the center for the production of dirty books and dirty pictures” in the Early Modern period underscores the extent to which obscene literature becomes a cultural referent, either open or clandestine. While her focus is on obscenity as it relates to the neo- Classical era, DeJean emphasizes that the Baroque period also contributed to the "reinvention" of smut that characterized a distinct element of literary and artistic production during the ...

Neither Grobalized Nor Glocalized: Fuguet’S Or Lemebel’S Metropolis?, J. Agustín Pastén B. Jan 2005

Neither Grobalized Nor Glocalized: Fuguet’S Or Lemebel’S Metropolis?, J. Agustín Pastén B.

Spanish Language and Literature

I am interested in examining how globalization is having an impact in narrative representation and especially in verifying whether writers embrace or reject global forces and how they do so. Specifically, this article examines both the dilution and the rescuing of "the own" within the parameters of the contemporary Latin America capital city by focusing its attention on very recent literary and theoretical discourses produced in the continent. The incessant influx of novels, short-stories, urban chronicles and other texts into the market occasioned by multinational publishing houses makes it impossible to provide a comprehensive view of literary representation of the ...
