Social-Comic Anagnorisis In La Dama Duende, Matthew D. Stroud Oct 1977

Social-Comic Anagnorisis In La Dama Duende, Matthew D. Stroud

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

La dama duende has become quite a puzzle. Barbara Mujica, in her article, "Tragic Elements in Calderón's La dama duende," discusses several elements of Calderonian tragedy in a work which she ultimately defines as "comedy in its highest sense," (p. 328) and she finds implicit social criticism in its vaguely happy ending. Robert ter Horst refutes the idea of comedy and tragedy as leading a double life by saying, in effect, that comedy is potential tragedy which is averted by "anticipating or delaying the conclusions to which tragedy leaps," but then he goes on to claim that Don Manuel ...

Dramatic Structure And Philosophy In Brutus, Alzire And Mahomet, Thomas M. Carr Jr. Oct 1975

Dramatic Structure And Philosophy In Brutus, Alzire And Mahomet, Thomas M. Carr Jr.

French Language and Literature Papers

An impressive amount of recent critical work has dealt with the philosophic element in Voltaire's tragedies. His plays have been labelled a theatre of involvement and a theatre of ideas; they have been examined from the standpoint of propaganda and as tragedy. However,the focus of such studies has been primarily on Voltaire's message or on the meaning of the plays, rather than on the dramatic structure he created to convey his philosophic concerns.

Today, of course, Voltaire does not rank high either as an original thinker or as a dramatist. Nonetheless, his attempt to introduce his philosophic ...

Tant que vouse detournerez votre espirit de ses reves, il ne les connaitra pas; vous serez le jouet de mille apparences parce que vous en aurez pais compris la nature. Si un peu de reve est dangereux, ce qui en guerit ce n'est pas moins de reve, mais plus de reve, mais tout le reve.

Tel est l'admirable conseil donne par le peintre Elstir au jeune Marcel. C'est en le suivant et apres maints tatonnements que celui-ci decouvrira la veritable realite, la beaute et l'art. Si dans l'optique de Blanchot l'imaginaire est seulement le ...


Oreste Poursuivi Par Les Furies Dans L'Andromaque De Racine Et Les Mouches De Sartre, Ann Harrington Archer Apr 1974

Oreste Poursuivi Par Les Furies Dans L'Andromaque De Racine Et Les Mouches De Sartre, Ann Harrington Archer

Master's Theses

Le but de cet essai est de retrouver l'origine de ces deux différentes conceptions d'Oreste dans la littérature antique, puis de montrer comment chaque Oreste exprime les croyances et les idées de son propre créateur: Racine, chez qui la fatalité de la tragédie, le prédéterminisme du Jansénisme et peut-être le pessimisme naturel se mêlent pour accabler l'individu; Sartre , chez qui, Dieu étant mort, l'homme est "condamné a être libre" et pour qui la tragédie de 11 existence n'est que le point de départ pour l'individu forcé de créer sa propre destinée.

The Artistic Deformation Of Reality : An Ideological Portrait Of Tyranny In Tirano Banderas And El Señ̃Or Presidente, Roebrta Wynne Cohen Jul 1969

The Artistic Deformation Of Reality : An Ideological Portrait Of Tyranny In Tirano Banderas And El Señ̃Or Presidente, Roebrta Wynne Cohen

Master's Theses

Tyrants speak with many voices, bold many poses, and cast many shadows, but inevitably all wear the same face--the tragic face of tyranny itself. Many artists have painted the portrait; few have captured the essence of its tragedy. Valle Inclan and Asturias, each in his own way, depict the world of tyranny as grotesque and absurd in order to show the tragic condition of man. It is my intent to describe and analyze this grotesque world of tyranny, as portrayed in Tirana Banderas and Senor Preeidente; to compare the techniques used by each writer to create this world; to interpret ...

Word-Making Potentialities Of English, Georgie A. Gurney Apr 1957

Word-Making Potentialities Of English, Georgie A. Gurney

Theses, Dissertations & Honors Papers

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the various methods of word-formation in the English language, to ascertain which methods are active in the post-World War II of today, and decide, if possible, which methods are coming into increasing use and which methods are temporarily out of favor.

For this study materials over a seventeen -year period 1939-1956 were consulted, and then the war words which seemed to find no permanent place in the language were discarded. Many of the war words were retained, however, if the seemed to fill a continuing need.

Of course, any judgement concerning what ...
