Utopia, Archive, And Anarchy In Los Siete Hijos De Simenon By Ramón Díaz Eterovic, Lila Mcdowell Carlsen Jun 2011

Utopia, Archive, And Anarchy In Los Siete Hijos De Simenon By Ramón Díaz Eterovic, Lila Mcdowell Carlsen

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The detective narratives by Ramón Díaz Eterovic (Chile 1956) address some of Latin America’s most relevant socio-political problems, such as the disappeared, racial discrimination, drug trafficking, corruption, social oppression, and ecological negligence. While some critics have emphasized specific social issues of the new detective novel and, in particular, the novel by Díaz Eterovic studied here, Los siete hijos de Simenon (2000) ‘The Seven Sons of Simenon,’ less attention has been placed on the ideological and ethical foundation from which these social issues emerge. This novel displays a utopian perspective that points directly to a distorted system of values evident ...


From The Atlantic To The Pacific: Maruja Mallo In Exile , Shirley Mangini Jan 2006

From The Atlantic To The Pacific: Maruja Mallo In Exile , Shirley Mangini

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Maruja Mallo's life (1902-1995) and art represent one woman's odyssey from the European vanguards to political commitment during the Spanish Republic (1931-1939) and finally to a unique transcendent art form after her wrenching exile from Spain and her residence in Latin America from 1937 to 1965. In her early career she was a leader among the avant-garde painters when few Spanish women were recognized as creative artists. In Latin America, her work diverged radically from European avant-garde trends and from her ideologically oriented subject matter of the 1930s; Mallo not only reflects the impact of her discovery of ...


Alvaro Mutis And The Ends Of History, Gerald Martin Jan 1995

Alvaro Mutis And The Ends Of History, Gerald Martin

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Part of the confusion of the current literary and critical moment, in Latin America and elsewhere, involves a debate as to whether the most characteristic forms of contemporary writing are the more apparently transparent (in contrast to current critical practice) or the more impenetrable and indecipherable of literary texts. This debate is of particular relevance to Latin American discussions about the so-called "Post-Boom," and the work of the Colombian Alvaro Mutis, a writer who came late to narrative fiction and to critical attention, offers several insights into the links between writing, criticism and idology at this moment close to the ...


Pedro Páramo, A Metaphor For The End Of The World, Julio Ortega Jan 1990

Pedro Páramo, A Metaphor For The End Of The World, Julio Ortega

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

In Rulfo's novel, popular Catholic culture functions as an ideology and as such, it encompasses the totality of the represented universe. Because reality is only captured through ideology, there is no criterion in the novel that is outside ideology and which would therefore offer a critical standpoint, though this criterion does exist by implication in the world of the reader.


Modernity And Marginality In Love In The Time Of Cholera, Mabel Moraña Jan 1990

Modernity And Marginality In Love In The Time Of Cholera, Mabel Moraña

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The two male protagonists of García Márquez's novel, Dr. Urbino and Florentino Ariza (whose lives are linked by their relationship to Fermina Daza), enact to the limit nineteenth century ideologies of scientific progress and romanticism. The anachronistic plot of romantic love taken to the point of parody is deployed by the author as a critique of fin de siècle modernity.


"The Universal Andalusian," "The Zealous Andalusian," And The "Andalusian Elegy.", Richard A. Cardwell Jan 1983

"The Universal Andalusian," "The Zealous Andalusian," And The "Andalusian Elegy.", Richard A. Cardwell

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Biographers and critics have been content to repeat Juan Ramón Jiménez' own comments concerning the influence upon him of Krausism, the Institución Libre de Enseñanza and the personality and model of Francisco Giner de los Ríos. In general, little discussion of the nature of that contact and virtually no evidence for arguing the importance or the shape of Krausist ethos on Jiménez' intellectual formation have been adduced. In previous studies I have considered Jiménez' literary apprenticeship in the light of the Krausist contacts. In the present study I further contend that Platero у уо, arguably his best known work, represents ...
