Escrituras A Ras De Suelo: Crónica Latinoamericana Del Siglo Xx, Marcela Aguilar, Claudia Darrigrandi, Mariela Méndez, Antonia Viu

Bookshelf

El proyecto de publicar una colección de artículos sobre la crónica latinoamericana aparecida en el siglo xx, principalmente entre 1930 y 1970, intenta hacerse cargo de una producción mucho menos estudiada que la crónica modernista o que la crónica de las últimas décadas, problematizando las definiciones y fundamentos que se le han atribuido al género a partir de esas tradiciones. Más que una nueva revisión de tales concepciones de la crónica, lo que el lector encontrará en los escritos agrupados en las distintas secciones de este libro son elementos parciales y problemas concretos que surgen en muy distintos contextos y ...


Emily And Annie: Doris Lessing's And Jamaica Kincaid's Portraits Of The Mothers They Remember And The Mothers That Might Have Been, Daryl Cumber Dance Nov 2010

Emily And Annie: Doris Lessing's And Jamaica Kincaid's Portraits Of The Mothers They Remember And The Mothers That Might Have Been, Daryl Cumber Dance

English Faculty Publications

In 2008 at the age of eighty-nine, Nobel laureate Doris Lessing returned to the mother who has haunted her life and her literature in order to rewrite a fictional account of the life that might have been and a biographical account of the life that she actually lived in Alfred & Emily. Her efforts to finally exorcise the powerful and hated figure that has hounded her for most of her eighty-nine years call to mind similar efforts throughout the canon of fifty-nine-year-old celebrated Antiguan-American novelist Jamaica Kincaid to free herself. Both writers take advantage of and seek to find some degree ...


Crítica Cultural, Literatura Y Rock: La Novela Guatemalteca Y Las Culturas Juveniles En Latinoamérica, Claudia Ferman Jan 2007

Crítica Cultural, Literatura Y Rock: La Novela Guatemalteca Y Las Culturas Juveniles En Latinoamérica, Claudia Ferman

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Si la literatura guatemalteca ha logrado ocupar un espacio importante en los debates críticos de los últimos años lo ha hecho desde una masa textual extremadamente acotada. El territorio total de su producción literaria ha permanecido como un motivo de reflexión sólo para especialistas, y a que contexto político, condiciones de la industria editorial y panorama educativo, han conspirado contra toda difusión más general de esa producción. Si esta literatura se lee y se analiza fragmentariamente, tampoco encuentra fuertes coherencias internas que aglutinen a sus productores y/o críticos. En ese contexto, es interesante que el escritor Mario Alberto Carrera ...


Derek Walcott: A Caribbean Life By Bruce King (Book Review), Daryl Cumber Dance Jul 2002

Derek Walcott: A Caribbean Life By Bruce King (Book Review), Daryl Cumber Dance

English Faculty Publications

In Another Life Derek Walcott wrote, "I had entered the house of literature as a houseboy"; Jamaican poet Mervyn Morris signified on this image in his The Pond when he declared, "And these are my rooms now." The journey that Walcott makes from "houseboy" to master/ruler/owner of the house of literature (the Nobel Laureate is frequently acclaimed the greatest poet writing in the English language) is painstakingly detailed in Bruce King's tome Derek Walcott: A Caribbean Life.


"Journey To An Expectation:" A Reflection And A Prayer, Daryl Cumber Dance Apr 1997

"Journey To An Expectation:" A Reflection And A Prayer, Daryl Cumber Dance

English Faculty Publications

From Francis Williams in the first quarter of the 18th century to Phillis Wheatley in 1773 to C. L. R. James in 1932, to Sam Selvon and George Lamming in 1950, they pack their manuscripts and head to the Mother Country seeking the approval of the Colonialist Publisher, carrying a dream that cannot come true for the Black Colonial on this side of the ocean, certainly not in a little island where all too often people think the only artists are calypsonians or reggae stars. I can envision those budding writers setting out on what Lamming called their "journey to ...
