Vladimir Galaktionovich Korolenko, 1853-1921, Radha Balasubramanian Sep 1998

Vladimir Galaktionovich Korolenko, 1853-1921, Radha Balasubramanian

Russian Language and Literature Papers

Vladimir Galaktionovich Korolenko is well known not only as a publicist and a humanitarian, but also as a writer. His voluminous publicistic writing, based on his service to the people, championed truth and justice. It ranges from exposing activities of the local gentry in their manipulation of the city’s bank, court, and local zemstvo, to condemning the revolutionaries openly, after they took over power, for not complying with the law and for forcing changes too rapidly. As a writer of fiction, Korolenko’s contribution to Russian narrative prose is in the form of short stories.


Future Mallarmé (Present Picasso): Portraiture And Self-Portraiture In Poetry And Art, Marshall C. Olds Jul 1998

Future Mallarmé (Present Picasso): Portraiture And Self-Portraiture In Poetry And Art, Marshall C. Olds

French Language and Literature Papers

Let us turn to what might at first seem the improbable encounter between Stéphane Mallarmé and Pablo Picasso. On the face of it, so much separates them: the one patiently mining a limited set of aesthetic notions, spending years perfecting some of his major works, the other incessantly exploring all possibilities of visual representation, moving through styles sometimes weekly, creating prodigiously in different media, living dozens of careers. In their separate ways, though, they both were extreme examples of creativity. Whether or not for that reason, Picasso turned toward (if not to) Mallarmé at two distinct points in his career ...


Elaboración De Una Poética En Los Ensayos Tempranos De Octavio Paz, J. Agustín Pastén B. Jun 1998

Elaboración De Una Poética En Los Ensayos Tempranos De Octavio Paz, J. Agustín Pastén B.

Spanish Language and Literature

En gran parte, la relación de Octavio Paz con la inteligentsia mexicana ha sido conflictiva, especialmente con los intelectuales de izquierda. Vale recordar, por ejemplo, el pleito Paz-Fuentes, pleito que se agudiza con la publicación de un articulo de Enrique Krauze—amigo de Paz y colaborador de Vuelta—en el que Krauze se refiere al "mal uso" que hace Fuentes de la historia. Recuérdese también el Coloquio de Invierno de 1992. Tras mover cielo y tierra, Paz logra ser invitado a ese encuentro literario para más tarde condenar al gobierno mexicano por organizar un evento claramente político (es decir, de ...


Consolation And The Work Of Mourning In Angéline De Montbrun, Thomas M. Carr Jr. May 1998

Consolation And The Work Of Mourning In Angéline De Montbrun, Thomas M. Carr Jr.

French Language and Literature Papers

The dynamics of this foundational text of Canadian literature come from its heroine's drive to resolve her overwhelming sense of loss. Angéline loses her father, her beauty, and the love of her fiance Maurice within the space of three pages against a backdrop formed by memory of the loss suffered at the Conquest. Indeed, reading the novel under the sign of resignation is a commonplace. Critics as diverse as the early Catholic reviewers, more recent biographically-oriented researchers, and Freudian and feminist commentators have underscored Angeline's attempts to resign herself to this succession of losses. To a lesser extent ...


Review Of Emblems And Alchemy, By Alison Adams & Stanton J. Linden, Eds., Russell J. Ganim Mar 1998

Review Of Emblems And Alchemy, By Alison Adams & Stanton J. Linden, Eds., Russell J. Ganim

French Language and Literature Papers

Combining revived interest in both the emblem and alchemy, this volume is the third in a series of works on emblem studies published by the French Department at the University of Glasgow. Its ten essays, divided among three major categories entitled, “A Theoretical Perspectives”, “The English Alchemists”, and “Continental Manifestations”, stress inter disciplinarity as they explore the relationships between text, image, and alchemical practice. Broad in scope but detailed in its analyses, the compendium raises several intriguing questions about the correspondence between literature, art, and pseudo-science. Despite the diversity of its topics, the collection is often surprisingly unified in its ...
