Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology

Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés

Books/Book Chapters

En este artículo se analiza cómo en El bandido doblemente armado de Soledad Puétolas se hace un tributo a El largo adiós de Raymond Chandler.

Marlowe aparecía en El largo adiós como el verdadero protagonista que nos muestra su visión de la realidad más que nunca, permitiéndonos un mayor conocimiento de su interior. Del mismo modo, el narrador de El bandido doblemente armado, consigue una identidad propia al hacer que los encuentros y desencuetros con los otros personajes trasciendan.

El segundo personaje principal en las dos novelas tiene el mismo nombre, Terry Lennox. Si la similitud de los narradores es ...


Comics And Illustration From The Written; The Conversion Of A Story From Prose To Graphic Depiction., Kayla A. White Ms. 2014 East Tennessee State University

Comics And Illustration From The Written; The Conversion Of A Story From Prose To Graphic Depiction., Kayla A. White Ms.

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This is a thesis that details the process of writing a short 30 page novel, and then converting the subsequent story into a graphic format via illustrations and into a comic book layout. The story itself deals in reworking our learned assumptions of good and evil, specifically in the supernatural and human possibility for both. The comic book format is an exploration of my reader’s different responses to the written and the graphic.


The [Ftaires!] To Remembrance: Language, Memory, And Visual Rhetoric In Chaucer's House Of Fame And Danielewski's House Of Leaves, Shannon Danae Kilgore 2014 University of Puget Sound

The [Ftaires!] To Remembrance: Language, Memory, And Visual Rhetoric In Chaucer's House Of Fame And Danielewski's House Of Leaves, Shannon Danae Kilgore

Honors Program Theses

Geoffrey Chaucer's dream poem The House of Fame explores virtual technologies of memory and reading, which are similar to the themes explored in Danielewski's House of Leaves. "[ftaires!]", apart from referencing the anecdotal (and humorous) misspelling of "stairs" in House of Leaves, is one such linguistically and visually informed phenomenon that speaks directly to how we think about, and give remembrance to, our own digital and textual culture. This paper posits that graphic design, illustrations, and other textual cues (such as the [ftaires!] mispelling in House of Leaves] have a subtle yet powerful psychological influence on our reading ...


"Jesus Thrown Everything Off Balance": Grace And Redemption In Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man Is Hard To Find", Abbie C. Harris 2014 University of North Georgia

"Jesus Thrown Everything Off Balance": Grace And Redemption In Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man Is Hard To Find", Abbie C. Harris

Papers and Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

By creating flawed, hypocritical, and sometimes mad characters, Flannery O’Connor demonstrates the religious decay of the South in her short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find.” While they appear to be quite different on the surface, Grandma and The Misfit are both the same at the core: sinners in need of Christ’s redemption. The Misfit is blatantly sinful and enraged at the concept of God’s grace, and Grandma masks her sinfulness with respectability and chooses to treat God as something that she can accept or ignore depending on her situation, a common practice of “good ...


Creating A Lexical Universe: Redefining Burke’S Dramatic Pentad Through The Language Of Finnegans Wake, London Chamberlin 2014 University of North Georgia

Creating A Lexical Universe: Redefining Burke’S Dramatic Pentad Through The Language Of Finnegans Wake, London Chamberlin

Papers and Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

By applying James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake to Kenneth Burke’s dramatic pentad, I argue that Joyce’s lexical ambiguities, while intentionally caustic, succeed in strengthening rather than discarding typical dramatic structures. Renowned for its perplexities, the Wake revels in its flexible allusions and word play. These “puns and reedles,” as Joyce calls them, serve to distort what readers would generally classify as elements of narrative form, summed up succinctly by Burke’s dramatic pentad: act, scene, agent, agency, and purpose. Nevertheless, I attempt to prove that Joyce’s work emerges rhetorically sound through his authorial motives, motives which expand ...

Joining ``The Mathematician's Delirium To The Poet's Logic'': Mathematical Literature And Literary Mathematics, Rita Capezzi, Christine Kinsey 2014 Claremont Colleges

Joining ``The Mathematician's Delirium To The Poet's Logic'': Mathematical Literature And Literary Mathematics, Rita Capezzi, Christine Kinsey

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

This paper describes our team-taught interdisciplinary mathematics and literature course, Mathematical Literature and Literary Mathematics, which invites students to consider Raymond Queneau's challenge: "Why shouldn't one demand a certain effort on the reader's part? Everything is always explained to him. He must eventually tire of being treated with such contempt.'' We study works by Berge, Borges, Calvino, Perec, Queneau, Robbe-Grillet and Stoppard, among others. From a literary critical perspective, the course highlights the play of language rather than the primacy of meaning. We choose texts where mathematical concepts are subjects or structuring elements of the literature, and ...


Aproximación A Los Fundamentos Teóricos Y Epistemológicos De La Literatura Comparada, Pedro Agudelo Rendón 2014 Western University

Aproximación A Los Fundamentos Teóricos Y Epistemológicos De La Literatura Comparada, Pedro Agudelo Rendón

Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

Abstract: This paper reviews the problem of the relationship between art and literature. First, the text considers the way this issue has been analyzed. Second, the essay proposes that ekphrasis supports studies of Comparative Literature. Finally, the text suggests the relationship between narration and description. Both are characteristics of the ekphrasis. The conclusion shows the necessity to think a perspective that integrates semiotic to hermeneutic in the study of the inter-artistic relationships.

Resumen: Este artículo examina el problema de la relación entre arte y literatura. El texto, primero, revisa la manera en que ha sido abordada esta temática; segundo, propone ...

Philip Roth, Henry Roth And The History Of The Jews, Timothy Parrish 2014 Purdue University

Philip Roth, Henry Roth And The History Of The Jews, Timothy Parrish

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Philip Roth, Henry Roth and the History of the Jews" Timothy Parrish argues that while Roth's status as a Jewish American writer has been a pressing issue since his career began and that while in recent scholarship Roth's achievement as a US-American writer is stressed, the durability of Roth's work depends more on its implied submission to a Jewish tradition. From "The Conversion of the Jews" (1959) to Nemesis (2010), his characters challenge endlessly the ethical and moral constructs of their Jewish community to acknowledge the fact that they exist inside of it. One ...


Roth’S Humorous Art Of Ghost Writing, Paule Levy 2014 Purdue University

Roth’S Humorous Art Of Ghost Writing, Paule Levy

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Roth's Humorous Art of Ghost Writing" Paule Lévy analyses Philip Roth's Exit Ghost, the last novel featuring Nathan Zuckerman, in which Roth reassesses his favorite alter ego's itinerary while exploring the troubled relation between writing and aging. Lévy considers Exit Ghost as an ironic sequel to The Ghost Writer and posits that in the light of Derrida's theories of writing and "hauntology" the central motifs of ghosts and "spectrality" in the novel are a means for Roth to reflect anew on the ambiguous relation between autobiography and fiction. Lévy asks whether Exit Ghost ...

My Life In Pieces, Scattered Abroad: A 22 Year Old East Tennessean Attempts To Take Everything She Has Learned Growing Up In A Small Town And Make Sense Of It In The French Riviera—The Côte D’Azur—Which Instantly Felt Like Home, Christin B. Ball

Undergraduate Honors Theses

For my senior thesis, I have compiled essays that cover traveling to Aix en Provence for the month of June 2103 and growing up in East Tennessee. This project should exhibit my skills as a writer in the nonfiction category. I describe personal experiences, portray characters, and attempt to show readers a world that they may not otherwise have been able to experience. I blend narrative essays with travel writing to show overall how these two components create an intercultural experience that work to inform and answer each other.


A Transnational Novel In Disguise: The Influence Of Brazil In Nella Larsen's Passing, Grant M. Andersen 2014 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

A Transnational Novel In Disguise: The Influence Of Brazil In Nella Larsen's Passing, Grant M. Andersen

English Publications and Other Works

While Nella Larsen's second novel, Passing, has received increased attention by critics in recent years there has been little consideration of the transnational dimension of the novel. As I intend to demonstrate in this thesis, by focusing on Brian Redfields’s desire to relocate to Brazil, we must consider Passing as an importantly transnational novel and not just a novel solely focused on Chicago and Harlem. The influence of Brazil on both Brian and Irene Redfield serves to comment on, and critique, the interrelated construction of race and class in the U.S. nation-state. Thus, as I show, we ...
