Erinnerungen An Robert(O) Schopflocher: Ein Multikulturelles Leben Als Vorbild, Reinhard Andress May 2018

Erinnerungen An Robert(O) Schopflocher: Ein Multikulturelles Leben Als Vorbild, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

Ich kam vor etwa zehn Jahren auf Robert Schopflocher zunächst über seine Doppelsprachigkeit. Damit meine ich nicht nur eine relativ beliebige Mehrsprachigkeit, sondern auch die Fähigkeit, literarisch in zwei Sprachen schreiben zu können, oft als Ergebnis des Exils. In seinem ersten Erzählband auf Deutsch, Wie Reb Froike die Welt rettete, las ich mich fest, und da ich Spanisch durch Studium und Ehe kann, nahm ich mir ebenfalls seine früheren, in der Sprache geschriebenen Texte vor, etwa den Erzählband Ventana abierta (Offenes Fenster) oder den Roman Extraños negocios (Seltsame Geschäfte). Auch seine weiteren Bücher auf Deutsch schaffte ich mir immer schnell ...


Memory And Exile In María Teresa León’S Las Peregrinaciones De Teresa (1950), Debra J. Ochoa Feb 2018

Memory And Exile In María Teresa León’S Las Peregrinaciones De Teresa (1950), Debra J. Ochoa

Debra Ochoa

María Teresa León (1903-1988) is most well known for her autobiography Memoria de la melancolía (1977), written during her last years of exile from her native Spain. The year 2003 marked the centenary of her birth and a reevaluation of her fiction, including a new edition of her short stories edited by Gregorio Torres Nebrera. [1] In the twenty-first century León finally receives much overdue recognition. [2] This article will examine León‘s conception of memory and exile, through a close textual reading of her short stories ―Primera peregrinación de Teresa," ―El noviciado de Teresa," ―Cabeza de ajo," and ―Esplendor ...

Mapa Dibujado Por Un Espía: Crónica Autobiográfica Y Poética De La Memoria, Isabel Alvarez-Borland Jan 2017

Mapa Dibujado Por Un Espía: Crónica Autobiográfica Y Poética De La Memoria, Isabel Alvarez-Borland

Spanish Department Faculty Scholarship

Mapa dibujado por un espía, a memoir by Guillermo Cabrera Infante ( published in 2013 by his widow Miriam Cabrera Infante), describes the experience of not being able to leave Cuba during four months, period in which the author had returned to his country in order to attend the funeral of his mother, Zoila Infante in 1965. My reading examines this memoir in its autobiographical dimension and seeks to illuminate the presence in this work of several voices that appear in tension with one another. My study focuses on these voices as it pays attention in particular to the silences of ...


The Construction Of A Transatlantic Subject: Family And Nation In "Sola" By María José De Chopitea, Valeriya F. Fritz Jan 2017

The Construction Of A Transatlantic Subject: Family And Nation In "Sola" By María José De Chopitea, Valeriya F. Fritz

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

This article explores the articulation of exile identity in the novel Sola by María José de Chopitea published in Mexico in 1954. Until now, critics have approached this text as lacking ideological argument. I propose an alternative reading of the novel as an ideologically charged narrative that articulates the nation beyond state borders and in terms of a transatlantic bond between Mexico and the Spanish Republic. Sola creates space in the nation for Catalan female writers who were previously excluded due to both their gender and their status as political exiles and cultural minorities.


Exilios Secretos Y Sujetos Invisibles: Guillermo Cabrera Infante Y Antonio José Ponte, Isabel Alvarez-Borland Oct 2016

Exilios Secretos Y Sujetos Invisibles: Guillermo Cabrera Infante Y Antonio José Ponte, Isabel Alvarez-Borland

Spanish Department Faculty Scholarship

Mapa dibujado por un espía (2013), memoria póstuma de Guillermo Cabrera Infante, publicada por su viuda Miriam Cabrera Infante, describe la experiencia de no poder salir de Cuba durante cuatro meses, época en la que nuestro autor había regresado a su país para asistir a los funerales de su madre, Zoila Infante en 1965. También en La fiesta vigilada (2007), colección de ensayos y memorias de exilio de Antonio José Ponte, podemos apreciar un horror similar al sufrido por Cabrera Infante. Aquí Ponte elabora un discurso que exibe una sensibilidad exílica que lo identifica con la historia inmediata a su ...

Geographies Of Exile And The Making Of French Nationhood In The Nineteenth Century, Lisa Rose Bromberg Jan 2016

Geographies Of Exile And The Making Of French Nationhood In The Nineteenth Century, Lisa Rose Bromberg

Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations

This dissertation analyzes space, geography, and political discourse in the exilic works of Napoleon I, Victor Hugo, Louise Michel, Alfred Dreyfus, and Èmile Zola to show how, through their constructions of island space and the Revolutionary legacy, their outcast voices paradoxically shaped the development of mainstream Frenchness.

Chapter 1 analyzes Napoleon’s exile to Saint Helena (1815-1821) through close readings of the Mémorial de Sainte-Hèlène (1823); here, the Emperor emphasized his exilic island and martyrdom to re-construct his imperial legacy as a republican gesture. Chapter 2 discusses Hugo’s exile to Guernsey (1856-1870); Hugo interpreted the Revolution as a conflict ...

Displacements And Autobiography In Cuban-American Fiction, Isabel Alvarez-Borland Jan 1994

Displacements And Autobiography In Cuban-American Fiction, Isabel Alvarez-Borland

Spanish Department Faculty Scholarship

My study seeks to trace the dramatization of the Cuban voice within the fictional world of Cuban American authors and to explore the solutions and substitutions these authors have devised in order to create a voice in a culture other than that of their country of birth
