La Teoría De La Poesía En Jorge Cuesta Y José Gorostiza, Raúl Carrillo-Arciniega Dec 2004

La Teoría De La Poesía En Jorge Cuesta Y José Gorostiza, Raúl Carrillo-Arciniega

Doctoral Dissertations

The dissertation titled “La teoría de la poesía en Jorge Cuesta y José Gorostiza” explores, according to what Ernest Curtius has called “Theory of Poetry,” the concept that the poet has had about himself, as well as the activity he executes. This study has reconstructed the history and thoughts of these poets in order to demonstrate how, since the 30’s, these poets have introduced, in their way, a “deconstructive” thought utilizing the phenomenological method to enface the world. This new relation of the subject with the world opposes to a traditional vision in which the world is constructed based ...

Reflexión Sobre La Realidad Mexicana: Una Mirada Crítica De La Historia A Través De La Dramaturgia Posmoderna De Juan Tovar.” (Reflexion On Mexican Reality: A Critical View Of History Through Postmodern Drama Plays By Juan Tovar), Perla Xochitl Zamitiz Pineda

Doctoral Dissertations

The focus of this dissertation is the analysis of the Mexican History as a literary tool in the production of drama plays by Mexican playwright Juan Tovar, as well as the study of the technique known as Intertextuality.

In order to show that History is ...

Christian Woman, Womanchrist: The Feminization Of Christianity In Constanza De Castilla, Catherine Of Siena, And Teresa De Cartagena, Mary Elizabeth Baldridge

Doctoral Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to examine the literary works of Contanza de Castilla, a fifteenth century Spanish nun, in comparison with those of Catherine of Siena, a fourteenth century Italian saint, and Teresa de Cartagena, another fifteenth century Spanish nun. The comparisons were made in order to determine whether similarities among the experiences and spiritualities of these three women led to similarities of gender strategies and/or participation in the feminization of Christianity.

Examination of the works of these three women was based on both the structure in which they wrote (the epistolary format), and the themes that ...

My first chapter focuses on what is known of Carvajal, aspects of historical background, and ...
