Desire, Curiosity, And The Search For Truth In Proust, Moreno, And Bechdel, Santiago Parga Linares Sep 2017

Desire, Curiosity, And The Search For Truth In Proust, Moreno, And Bechdel, Santiago Parga Linares

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Marcel Proust’s influence on twentieth century literature is broad and has been well documented. This dissertation attempts a comparative reading of À la recherche du temps perdu that places it in contrast with Colombian writer Marvel Moreno’s 1987 novel, En diciembre llegaban las brisas, and Alison Bechdel’s 2006 comic memoir, Fun Home. Starting from a Deleuzian reading of the Recherche, this dissertation proposes the notion of the “proustian truth seeker”, a thematic and stylistic phenomenon which can be traced in all three writers. The characteristics of the truth seeker can be used to understand the ways in ...

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation analyzes the links between justice and affect in some of the most emblematic texts of the democratic transition in Argentina. Films, novels and photos are incorporated here as texts or complex utterances, as they constitute a framework of signs with a communicative intention that makes sense in a given context. In order to analyze these links, I consider terms from the field of transitional justice (reconciliation, forgiveness, restoration) and specific affects (terror, empathy, guilt, resentment, tenderness, happiness and cruelty).

The key questions guiding this thesis are: what links did visual arts and literature have in relation to the ...

Multiplicidad Dramática En Rumor De Mar, Dolores Rangel

Dolores Rangel

Rumor de Mar (2000) is a drama that deals with a broad spectrum of issues related to the dictatorship through the meta-theatre as a starting technique.  This technique suggests that the playwright intents to point out the nature and scope of the theatre itself and not only of what could be considered as problematic or core theme of the work.   In the case of Rumor de Mar, these topics are projected in the suffocating and alienating environment derived from a repressive political system, as well as psychological, both collective and individual, behaviors resulting from the same situation. 
This play shows ...
