«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.

Besides her native Germany, Helga Novak has lived in Iceland and Poland and has won numerous literary awards.

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 ...

Languages, Literatures and Cultures Publications

This book is an attempt at analyzing all surviving evidence for beer in ancient Europe, whether literary or material, from the beginnings to about A.D. 1000. While in general in those places where cereal was grown beer was also produced, this was not

Cuban American Literature, Isabel Alvarez-Borland Jan 2005

Cuban American Literature, Isabel Alvarez-Borland

Spanish Department Faculty Scholarship

This essay's approach to the diverse corpus that constitutes contemporary Cuban American prose and poetry is not strictly based on the traditional concept of generation nor does it base its conclusions on the dates the writers arrived from Cuba. Instead, the linking factor is the presence of a shared perspective toward the idea of exile and displacement. From this analysis, three distinct sensibilities emerge that can be grouped under the categories of exile, hybrid and ethnic.

Review Of Tristan L’Hermite: Oeuvres Complètes. Iii: Poésie (Ii). Volume Publié Sous La Direction De Jean-Pierre Chauveau, Russell J. Ganim Jan 2005

Review Of Tristan L’Hermite: Oeuvres Complètes. Iii: Poésie (Ii). Volume Publié Sous La Direction De Jean-Pierre Chauveau, Russell J. Ganim

Faculty Publications - Modern Languages and Literatures

This effort marks the second volume of poetry in a five-set edition of complete works consisting of Tristan’s prose, poetry and tragedies, as well as other plays and the Plaidoyers historiques. The present volume represents the culmination of an extensive undertaking by Champion and by noted Tristan scholars to render the Baroque author’s known works more accessible to researchers, students and the literate public. By any measure, the results are eminently satisfying both in terms of the volume in question and the entire project. This volume centres on texts composed and published mainly in the period afterwards. The ...


Théâtre Et Théâtralité Chez Flaubert, Marshall C. Olds Jan 2005

Théâtre Et Théâtralité Chez Flaubert, Marshall C. Olds

French Language and Literature Papers

De tous les écrits dits secondaires de Gustave Flaubert, c'est incontestablement son théâtre qui a été le dernier à susciter un examen critique sérieux. Dans l'immense bibliographie consacrée au romancier et à son oeuvre, les études sur le théâtre ont, jusqu'à très récemment, occupé peu de place : quelques pages, lues ça et là dans les analyses des romans ou dans les biographies, un nombre infime d'articles consacrés aux caractéristiques théâtrales de l'oeuvre romanesque, la publication très irrégulière d'inédits de projets de théâtre ou de notes de lecture théâtrale dont les manuscrits font surface de ...


Globalisation And 'La Pièce De Cent Sous': Balzac's Nation-State, Marshall C. Olds Jan 2005

Globalisation And 'La Pièce De Cent Sous': Balzac's Nation-State, Marshall C. Olds

French Language and Literature Papers

Seen from an Olympian perspective, globalisation in today's world denotes the use of a standard model to establish relationships economic, cultural, and moral—across peoples in the absence of national boundaries capable of restraining the formation of such ties. From the national, or local, perspective, it is the invasive imposition of foreign influence in the form of a single model. From either vantage point, change and adaptation are the order of the day. Take-overs of one culture by another, whether hostile or friendly, are not historical novelties; what seems to distinguish globalisation is its planetary scope and impetus to ...


Prominence In Singapore And American English: Evidence From Reading Aloud, John M. Levis Jan 2005

Prominence In Singapore And American English: Evidence From Reading Aloud, John M. Levis

English Publications

English has spread far beyond the boundaries of the traditional L1 varieties (eg British, American, Australian English). Not only is English a leading foreign language throughout the world, it is also a central language for many multilingual communities throughout the world. The speakers of these new Englishes are not yet fully seen as ‘native speakers’ by many speakers from the traditional L1 varieties but cannot be called ‘non‐native speakers’ in any meaningful sense of the word. Kachru (1990) calls these new varieties ‘outer circle’ Englishes, a contrast to the ‘inner circle’ native speaker varieties and the ‘expanding circle’ foreign ...


Infallible Texts And Righteous Interpretations: Don Quijote And Religious Fundamentalism, Matthew D. Stroud Jan 2005

Infallible Texts And Righteous Interpretations: Don Quijote And Religious Fundamentalism, Matthew D. Stroud

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

Religion in Don Quijote has been a frequent subject of inquiry over the past century. As a "vehicle for religious expression," to use Ziolkowski's terminology (1), Cervantes's masterpiece has been studied as an analogy of the relationship between religious faith and the world around it (Ziolkowski 8), as a manifestation of the historic clash between the secularization of the modern era and the waning medieval domination by "religious institutions and symbols" (Ziolkowski 9, citing Berger 107), as a vessel of both the spirit and the letter of selected pronouncements of the Council of Trent (Descouzis 479), as a ...


Constructing Authority In Lope De Vega's Egloga A Claudio: Self-Referentiality, Literary Judgment, And Ethics, Mark J. Mascia Jan 2005

Constructing Authority In Lope De Vega's Egloga A Claudio: Self-Referentiality, Literary Judgment, And Ethics, Mark J. Mascia

Languages Faculty Publications

The poetry of Lope de Vega has most often been analyzed for its treatment of themes such as love, religious devotion, or autobiographical introspection. However, one other key aspect of his poetry, especially of his longer poetical works (such as his epistolas and eglogas), is the engagement of literature and ethical concerns often related to the art of writing poetry. The purpose of this study is to examine one such work, the Egloga a Claudio (1631), a lengthy poem which normally should be classified as an epistola, for its role as l literary vehicle for passing judgment on different issues.


Over The Top: From The Tragic To The Comic In Corneille, Nina Ekstein Jan 2005

Over The Top: From The Tragic To The Comic In Corneille, Nina Ekstein

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

The notions of tragedy and comedy that one can intuit from the theater of Corneille are markedly different from those found in other authors of the period. This is but one aspect of a larger issue concerning Corneille's placement in the hallowed pantheon of literary history. He is one of the major canonical authors and yet he often disconcerts. He was one of the principal theorists of drama in the seventeenth century and yet he took a number of stands in direct and lonely opposition to his peers. Alain Couprie points out that Corneille "a toujours été un auteur ...

De La Pasividad Al Poder Sexual Y Económico: El Sujeto Activo En Sirena Selena, Iker González-Allende

Un estudio de la producción de la novela rosa publicada durante la guerra civil con una ambientación vasca.

El objetivo consiste en demostrar la conjunción en estas obras del elemento rosa o sentimental con el ideológico de la España de Franco, exponiéndose los procedimientos que utilizan estos autores para fagocitar la identidad vasca dentro de la española.
