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 ...

"Espiritu Sin Nombre": Names In Becquer, Susan Lynch, Alfred Rodriguez 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

"Espiritu Sin Nombre": Names In Becquer, Susan Lynch, Alfred Rodriguez

Literary Onomastics Studies

The most striking feature of an onomastic study of the Rimas, Gustavo Adolfo Becquer's major poetic creation, is the extreme paucity of given names.1 Only four such names appear in all of the Rimas (Ofelia, Minerva, Lazaro, Dante), but even these few must be qualified for the purpose of this study. They are not properly given names, actually identifying characters or people addressed by the poet in his lyrics. All four have connotative and/or metaphorical functions as employed in their respective poems.2 In point of fact, then, there are no personal names at all uttered in ...


Ambiguity And Destruction Through The Naming Process In Reivindicacion Del Conde Don Julian And Recuento, Antonio Sobejano-Moran 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Ambiguity And Destruction Through The Naming Process In Reivindicacion Del Conde Don Julian And Recuento, Antonio Sobejano-Moran

Literary Onomastics Studies

The main objective of Reivindicacion del Conde don Julian by Juan Goytisolo and Recuento by Luis Goytisolo is the harsh criticism and demolition of the entire Spanish society. The narrator-protagonist of Reivindicacion, through an imaginary odyssey that lasts one day, attacks and destroys the literature, religion, cultural beliefs, myths, and language of Spain, both past and present. In Recuento, on the other hand, Luis Goytisolo exposes and parodies the post-civil war social classes and traditional institutions, such as the army and the Catholic Church. The purpose of this analysis is to prove how the ambiguity that permeates these two novels ...


Poly-Anthroponomical Technique In Buero Vallejo's Drama Las Meninas, Grace Alvarez-Altman 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Poly-Anthroponomical Technique In Buero Vallejo's Drama Las Meninas, Grace Alvarez-Altman

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, the introductory paragraph is included here.

Twenty-five years after the Civil War (1936-1939), known as the "Little World War" in Spain, the United States brought Antonio Buero Vallejo to visit American colleges and universities as part of its cultural exchange program. He has been a special guest at the Modern Language Association meetings numerous times. His play Las Meninas, acclaimed to be his masterpiece out of his over 35 classical plays, is also the name of the masterpiece painting by the famous Vehizquez, who revolutionized art by introducing the technique of painting the atmosphere, light ...

Crossing Deep Rivers: Jose Maria Arguedas And The Renaming Of Peru, Margaret V. Ekstrom

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract the introductory paragraph is included here.

From the earliest days of the Discovery, the Spaniards had problems with naming in the New World. They had difficulties with the pronunciation and spelling of the Indian names for people and places, and they had to accept the native terminology for objects which had no name in Spanish because they did not exist in Spain. Such early chroniclers of the Conquest as Hernan Cortes, Bernal Diaz del Castillo and Bartolome de las Casas wrote with amazement in Spanish of the things they found in the Americas, interspersing variations ...


Naming And Namelessness In Jose Ruibal's La Maquina De Pedir, Wayne H. Finke 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Naming And Namelessness In Jose Ruibal's La Maquina De Pedir, Wayne H. Finke

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, here is the introductory paragraph of the article.

During the nearly forty-year regime of Generalissimo Francisco Franco, Spain's literary production entered a period of semi-dormancy occasioned by severe limitations of censorship and repression of creative energies, particularly in the area of the theater.1 While theaters, especially in Madrid, were economically solvent and successful, the dramatic offerings presented onstage in the main afforded audiences inoffensive fare of bourgeois superficiality with scant, or virtually no probing of the complex realities of post-Civil War Spain.2 Writers who remained in Spain following the devastation were constrained ...


Historias Mínimas. Los Caminos De La Ciencia Ficción En La Historieta Argentina Contemporánea, Lucas Berone 2014 University of South Florida

Historias Mínimas. Los Caminos De La Ciencia Ficción En La Historieta Argentina Contemporánea, Lucas Berone

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

El presente trabajo parte de la distinción entre mundos ficcionales realistas y mundos ficcionales fantásticos; y presenta y aborda contrastivamente, luego, un corpus de historietas de ciencia ficción recientemente producidas y publicadas en Argentina, a partir de dos ejes de análisis (las formas de la imaginación acerca de los vínculos entre el hombre y la tecnología y la construcción narrativa de sociedades utópicas o futuras), preguntándose fundamentalmente por las posibilidades que tienen dichas historietas de significar lo nuevo en el seno de una cultura periférica de Occidente.

La Revolución Zombificada. La Alegoría Del Trauma Cubano En Juan De Los Muertos, De Alejandro Brugués, Antonio Cardentey Levin

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

A partir del concepto “momento alegórico”, de Adam Lowenstein, me he planteado analizar críticamente la alegoría sociopolítica latente en la comedia Juan de los Muertos(2010), del cubano Alejandro Brugués, en relación dialógica con la zombificación y sus implicaciones argumentales. Siguiendo algunas de las ideas del Manifiesto Zombi, de Sarah Juliet Lauro y Karen Embry, advierto una construcción psicoanalítica del inmovilismo nacional en el contexto de la llamada Primavera Árabe, en el cual se rodó la película. A mi modo de ver, la figura del zombi constituye aquí una variante del tema del doble, en la medida en que alude ...


Un Cuento Satírico En Medio Del Debate Sobre El Darwinismo En México, Miguel A. Fernández Delgado MAFD 2014 University of South Florida

Un Cuento Satírico En Medio Del Debate Sobre El Darwinismo En México, Miguel A. Fernández Delgado Mafd

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

Charles Darwin's theory of biological evolution of species was accepted or rejected by Mexican scientists, including Gabino Barreda, representative of Comte's philosophy. It was also included by Justo Sierra in a history book for the Escuela Nacional Preparatoria, a decision which raised a lot of criticism from conservative groups. It is also discussed the implications of social Darwinism in the early Twentieth Century Mexico. The document we offer is a satire published in those years, which resembles the tone of Swift's Gulliver Travels.


Antígona De António Pedro (1954): O Alcance Social E Estético De Uma Peça, Inês Alves Mendes 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Antígona De António Pedro (1954): O Alcance Social E Estético De Uma Peça, Inês Alves Mendes

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: Antígona: Glosa nova da tragédia de Sófocles was a play written and directed by António Pedro for the second public performance of Teatro Experimental do Porto, in 1954. This play bears witness to the way in which Pedro engaged with the social realities of his time. Therefore, this paper examines how aesthetic and social features come together, in order to create an innovative adaptation of a classical theme in the context of the Portuguese 1950s. Through an analysis of the dialogue between this play and the work of Pirandello, Anouilh and the Brechtian precepts on classical adaptations, I intend ...

Apontamentos Para Uma Cartografia Do Pensamento Pedagógico De António Pedro -- Para Uma Arquitectura Do Teatro De Amadores, Teresa André

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro, the avejão, stood out in the Portuguese cultural landscape as one of the introducers of artistic and aesthetic concerns that were surfacing at the time in Europe. Over a period of several decades, he traced a consistent and disciplined path, breaking with prevailing ideologies and reacting against imposed artistic trends. He revealed the desire for aesthetic growth and the ambition of achieving harmony with cosmic plurality, as well as contributing to awakening other artistic creators to need for change. This article intends to illustrate the intense relationship of this artist with the various arts, and more specifically ...

António Pedro's "Monday Chronicles": The Voice Of Democracy On The Bbc Broadcasts To Portugal During World War Ii, Nelson Ribeiro

He achieved a high level of popularity among listeners in Portugal during the ...


Estratégias De Deformação E Transformação Em Apenas Uma Narrativa, Bruno Silva Rodrigues 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Estratégias De Deformação E Transformação Em Apenas Uma Narrativa, Bruno Silva Rodrigues

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: Apenas uma narrativa uses several core principles of Surrealism to construct a circular journey between reality and dream. Above all, there is an intention in this work to praise the unconscious. This is part of a general attempt by twentieth century artists to propose an alternative to the prevailing rational and logical mode. In the case of Apenas uma narrativa, this is not only achieved by the surrealist matrix, but also through the semiotics of the illustrations and the use of the Freudian concept of the uncanny. The various experimental journeys carried out by the protagonist of the story ...


Da Dor -- Um Percurso Vital (A Propósito Do Poema Inédito De António Pedro, "Annuaire Confidentiel"), Isabel Ponce de Leão 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Da Dor -- Um Percurso Vital (A Propósito Do Poema Inédito De António Pedro, "Annuaire Confidentiel"), Isabel Ponce De Leão

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: The unpublished poem “Annuaire Confidentiel” (undated) by António Pedro, which belongs to the estate of the Belgian surrealist E. L. T. Mesens, calls for a reflection on the author’s literary and pictorial production. Without denying surrealism, what it draws on is, above all, abjectionism, tracing a vital circuit which aproximates art and life. On the other hand, on the path towards dimensionism, of which the author was one of the pioneers, this poem represents a visuality that relates it to the pictorial arts in general and “Le crachat embelli” (1934) in particular. I propose to consider here these ...


A Tensão Para O Inanimado Ou A Emergência Da Morte Na Vida Nas Mulheres-Árvore De António Pedro, Michele Rocha 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

A Tensão Para O Inanimado Ou A Emergência Da Morte Na Vida Nas Mulheres-Árvore De António Pedro, Michele Rocha

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro, considered a pioneer of the Portuguese surrealist movement, stands by the assertion of a plastic thinking where word and image converge. In the work of this author, the feminine, in its multiple meanings and relations, emerges as a main theme, taking on a diversity of representations and significances. In this article, an analysis of the connections between plastic and literary works confirms a series of constant images that converge towards a representation of the feminine as a privileged object of destructive impulses. The study of women-trees present in the pictorial work of António Pedro, when considered alongside ...


António Pedro Pintor, José-Augusto França 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

António Pedro Pintor, José-Augusto França

Portuguese Cultural Studies

Abstract: António Pedro became interested, from fairly early on, in visual and mixed media expression, alongside literature and theatre. From the mid 1930s onwards, he produced a significant number of works (sketches, dimensional poems, invented objects, paintings, sculptures, ceramics) that were to have a significant impact on the artistic context in Portugal throughout the 1930s and 1940s. This article provides an overview of some of his most emblematic paintings, influenced to varying degrees by Surrealism or some aspects of it, and often characterized by subversive and oniric compositions. As such, it sheds light on the extent to which the pictorial ...
