A “Superior Magic”: Literary Politics And The Rise Of The Fantastic In Latin American Fiction, Pablo Brescia 2012 University of South Florida

A “Superior Magic”: Literary Politics And The Rise Of The Fantastic In Latin American Fiction, Pablo Brescia

Pablo Brescia

Writers in Latin America have theorised about literature throughout the twentieth century, frequently intervening in the literary debates of the times. What happened to fantastic literature, a major mode of literary expression for Latin American literature, in this context? This essay argues that between 1930 and 1950 two major writers, the Argentine Jorge Luis Borges and the Mexican Juan Jose´ Arreola, actively engaged in a promotion of the fantastic, a reading and writing code that deviated from the late-nineteenth or early-twentiethcentury realist paradigm. The articulation of this convention entailed not only the practice of fiction but also reflection and dissemination ...


“Un Final Para La Discutible Historia”: El Eterno Retorno De Los Adioses, Pablo A.J. Brescia 2012 University of South Florida

“Un Final Para La Discutible Historia”: El Eterno Retorno De Los Adioses, Pablo A.J. Brescia

Pablo Brescia

Este artículo reflexiona sobre cómo el marco de lectura propuesto por Los adioses (1954) instala un juego de interpretaciones que postulan la ambigüedad y la duda. El resultado de este juego es una revisión de las actividades de la lectura y la escritura. Así, hay un eterno retorno a Los adioses, una incesante búsqueda de indicios que el texto se resiste a dar, es decir, un continuo proceso de relectura-reescritura. Hay un cíclico "volver a empezar" donde todo se repite y nada es lo mismo y, a partir de allí, un intento de organizar una estructura coherente para así inspeccionar ...

Hazardous Experiments: The Elusive Prefaces Of William Godwin, Mary Hays, William Wordsworth And Percy Bysshe Shelley, Jeffrey W. Miles 2012 The University of Western Ontario

Hazardous Experiments: The Elusive Prefaces Of William Godwin, Mary Hays, William Wordsworth And Percy Bysshe Shelley, Jeffrey W. Miles

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This study analyzes the prefaces of four Romantic-period writers: William Godwin, Mary Hays, William Wordsworth, and Percy Bysshe Shelley. Historically, the preface can be traced back to the insinuatio of classical rhetoric, the purpose of which is to evade audience hostility for writers presenting a bad case. Given the repressive political and cultural atmosphere of the Romantic period, writers like Godwin, Hays, Wordsworth, and Shelley, idealists who seek to disseminate radical ideas in an era of state censorship, must devise a strategy to convey their messages without attracting attention to their subversiveness. Thus, all four writers continually preface their works ...

A Brief Research On 1936 Soviet Constitution Under Joseph Stalin, Jingyuan Qian 2012 Macalester College

A Brief Research On 1936 Soviet Constitution Under Joseph Stalin, Jingyuan Qian

The Macalester Review

The mission of this paper is to examine the Soviet Union's first constitution in 1936. It attempts to analyze how the social and economic conditions presented in USSR, as well as the personality of Joseph Stalin, stimulated the need to make a constitution. It also attempts to evaluate the influence of this constitution in the contemporary Soviet Society. I would like to thank Prof. Weisensel for his kind review and precious suggestions on this research paper.


On Chinese Foreign Policy: A Big Stick, An Equally Big Carrot, Hannah K. Fishman 2012 Macalester College

On Chinese Foreign Policy: A Big Stick, An Equally Big Carrot, Hannah K. Fishman

The Macalester Review

This paper attempts to provide a framework for analyzing China's newfound assertiveness. Does a rising China pose a systemic threat to the world order, or will Beijing's rise be characterized by what policy officials refer to as a "Peaceful Rise"? This paper argues that China is "building a bigger stick and a bigger carrot" to increase its hard and soft power capabilities; however, this policy won't necessarily pose a threat. The United States must strengthen Western-central international institutions and guide Beijing into this framework if the US wants to see a "Peaceful Rise."


The Mother-Love Myth: The Effect Of The Provider-Nurturer Dichotomy In Custody Cases, Kalie Caetano 2012 Macalester

The Mother-Love Myth: The Effect Of The Provider-Nurturer Dichotomy In Custody Cases, Kalie Caetano

The Macalester Review

This paper is a discursive analysis that evaluates the effect of gender stereotypes relating to parenting roles and how they have influenced custody cases. Specifically it looks at the historically gendered distinction between the provider (typically the father) and the nurturer (typically the mother) and speculates as to how those identities may have initially formed in US society, what changes they have undergone and how these stereotypes still affect family court outcomes in cases of divorce. Particular focus is given to an article appearing in Working Mother magazine entitled “Custody Lost,” detailing a new trend in custody cases, which allegedly ...


One Quotation, Two Meanings: Quotation Analysis Exercise, Dan Gleason 2012 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

One Quotation, Two Meanings: Quotation Analysis Exercise, Dan Gleason

Dan Gleason

This challenging lesson gives students practice in analyzing quotations very closely. The exercise begins with the premise that quotations never “speak for themselves,” and that writers need to explain what quotations mean. To prove this point, this lesson shows students that specific quotations can in fact “mean” (or support) very different claims; in fact, students use a single quotation to advance almost opposite arguments. The goal of the lesson is for students to understand that quotations may be very malleable, and thus they always need clear framing and explanation. This lesson uses a short essay, “What is an American?” as ...


The Headless Paragraph: Back-Forming Topic Sentences, Dan Gleason 2012 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

The Headless Paragraph: Back-Forming Topic Sentences, Dan Gleason

Dan Gleason

This exercise is designed to give students practice in creating and understanding topic sentences. Rather than asking students to create their own paragraphs headed with topic sentences, this exercise gives students the paragraphs and asks them to synthesize the topic sentences from the content provided. Such back-formation can help students grasp that a topic sentence does not merely start the paragraph, but also organizes and summarizes its key content.
