Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés 2015 DIT School of Languges

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 ...


Pedagogical And Ekphrastic Elements In The Story Of The Predestined Pilgrim And His Brother Reprobate?By Father Alexandre De Gusm, M Cecilia Fischer 2014 Brigham Young University - Provo

Pedagogical And Ekphrastic Elements In The Story Of The Predestined Pilgrim And His Brother Reprobate?By Father Alexandre De Gusm, M Cecilia Fischer

All Theses and Dissertations

The object of this thesis is to analyze the presence of the pedagogical ekphrastic elements in the novel The Story of The Predestined Pilgrim and his Brother Reprobate by Father Alexandre de Gusmmão. In the past this novel has been an obscure masterpiece outside the circle of those who study early Portuguese language works. In the last half century there has been a crescendo of the study of this novel as more scholars have taken an interest in the pilgrimage motif and in particular using this novel in comparative literature. A monumental contribution to bring this novel out of obscurity ...


Investigaciónn De Actitudes Sociolingüísticas Hacia El Valenciano Y El Castellanoen Agost, José Manuel Hernández Gonzalez 2014 Brigham Young University - Provo

Investigaciónn De Actitudes Sociolingüísticas Hacia El Valenciano Y El Castellanoen Agost, José Manuel Hernández Gonzalez

All Theses and Dissertations

This thesis investigates the attitudes of the inhabitants of Agost towards Castilian and Valencian Catalan. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire distributed among a representative sample of Agostenses between April and June 2013 and analyzed according to three independent variables: sex, age and education. It was hypothesized that attitudes would covary with these variables and, in general, this proved to be the case.

All Theses and Dissertations

This project is a transcription and translation of a 21-page annual letter written about the Cochinchina mission for the year 1619 by the Jesuit missionary João Rodrigues Girão. In 1619 the Cochinchina mission consisted of central and southern Vietnam. The two Jesuit residents at this time were located in the city of Faifo, in the province of Cacham, and Nuocman, in the province of Pulocamby. A semi-diplomatic and diplomatic transcription style is used for the transcription, with a dynamic-equivalent (sense-for-sense) style used for the translation.


The Production Of Voice Onset Time In Voiceless Stops By Spanish-English Natural Bilinguals, Ivan K. Banov 2014 Brigham Young University - Provo

The Production Of Voice Onset Time In Voiceless Stops By Spanish-English Natural Bilinguals, Ivan K. Banov

All Theses and Dissertations

This study analyzes the production of Voice Onset Time (VOT) of natural Spanish-English bilinguals. VOT is a linguistic characteristic that measures the amount of aspiration occurring after the release of a stop consonant. In terms of VOT, English stop consonants differ substantially from their Spanish equivalents. This study analyzes whether or not natural bilinguals produce VOTs that approximate VOTs of monolingual speakers of each language. Participants completed two surveys to quantify their linguistic dominance in English and Spanish. They were then recorded performing similar speaking tasks in both languages.The conclusions show that natural bilinguals do not produce their English ...


S-Cape Testing For Higher Proficiency Levels And Other Factors That Influence Placement At Brigham Young University, Elizabeth Robinson 2014 Brigham Young University - Provo

S-Cape Testing For Higher Proficiency Levels And Other Factors That Influence Placement At Brigham Young University, Elizabeth Robinson

All Theses and Dissertations

Brigham Young University (BYU) first implemented the Spanish Computer Adaptive Placement Examination (S-CAPE) during the Fall Semester of 1986 and it has been used ever since. The S-CAPE was designed to determine course placement into beginning and intermediate classes for students who have previously studied Spanish. A 10% increase occurred this year (2014) in students who have served missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many of these returned missionaries gained language proficiency on their missions, and some go to BYU to begin or continue their studies. Because of the increase in enrollment of students with intermediate ...


Going Gothic: Spanish Unity And Blame In The Legend Of Rodrigo And Florinda, Sara A. Gottardi 2014 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Going Gothic: Spanish Unity And Blame In The Legend Of Rodrigo And Florinda, Sara A. Gottardi

Doctoral Dissertations

The Legend of Rodrigo and Florinda is used to explain the causes for the successful Muslim invasion of Spain. My dissertation discusses six medieval versions of this legend, three Muslim and three Christian. I trace variations in blame to identify the different strata of society that are described as the corrosive catalysts for the Visigoths' divine punishment. I also analyze each source's presentation of the Visigothic prior to the invasion and examine how they assess the fracture of Spain into smaller kingdoms after the invasion. Identifying the Muslim invasion as a form of divine chastisement inherently includes the idea ...


Reflections On Chilean Literary Criticism: Enrique Lihn And Roberto Bolaño Challenge José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois, Elizabeth L. Hochberg 2014 Princeton University

Reflections On Chilean Literary Criticism: Enrique Lihn And Roberto Bolaño Challenge José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois, Elizabeth L. Hochberg

Dissidences

This article examines the ways in which writings by both Enrique Lihn and Roberto Bolaño enter into dialogue with the Chilean critical icon José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois. I argue that Lihn’s essay Sobre el antiestructuralismo de José Miguel Ibáñez Langlois (1983) and Bolaño’s novel Nocturno de Chile (2000) attempt to subvert the cultural dominance of Ibáñez Langlois through complex representations and interpretations of his theoretical relationship to language and silence. Keeping in mind Bolaño’s own admiration of Lihn, this article seeks to consider the ways in which Lihn’s polemic with Ibáñez Langlois during Pinochet's dictatorship ...


Is Catalan Separatism A Progressive Cause?, Edgar Illas 2014 Indiana University - Bloomington

Is Catalan Separatism A Progressive Cause?, Edgar Illas

Dissidences

This paper argues that the Left has not developed a theory for singular events such as Catalan separatism. Instead of conceiving it as a mere nationalist construct and rejecting it on behalf of federalism or universalism, I propose to focus on the transformative energies of this political and cultural movement. After tracing the historical links between separatism and radical leftist politics, my paper aims to extract three lessons from the project to build a new Catalan state: first, the possibility of formulating a right to vote based on residence and not on citizenship; second, the project to devise a non-culturalist ...


Perversión E Historia En “El Niño Proletario” De Osvaldo Lamborghini, Ofelia Ros 2014 Instituto Caro y Cuervo, Colombia

Perversión E Historia En “El Niño Proletario” De Osvaldo Lamborghini, Ofelia Ros

Dissidences

El cuento “El niño proletario” del argentino Osvaldo Lamborghini (1940-1985) fue publicado póstumamente en Novelas y cuentos al cuidado de César Aira. En él tres niños burgueses torturan y matan a un niño proletario en una fiesta de sangre, crimen y goce que interpela a toda una época. Su narrativa articula la antigua tradición de la sátira en una aguda crítica de la historia argentina contemporánea. Desde un enfoque que combina el psicoanálisis freudiano y lacaniano con un análisis histórico marxista, analizo cómo el cuento cuestiona con su parodia satírica, por un lado, la fantasía perversa que estructura la sociedad ...


La Bestia Insular. Lezama Lima Y La Revolución, Alejandro Sanchez Lopera, Oscar Barragan Martínez 2014 University of Pittsburgh - Main Campus

La Bestia Insular. Lezama Lima Y La Revolución, Alejandro Sanchez Lopera, Oscar Barragan Martínez

Dissidences

Este artículo presenta un análisis inmanente de la perspectiva de Lezama Lima, a partir de dos tópicos: la soberanía y el sujeto. Postula que los textos de Lezama forman un archipiélago desprendido del continente, que tiende a la creación de mundos posibles y no a su simple descripción o juicio moralista. Asimismo, a partir de sus textos se presenta un re-valoración de la experiencia de la revolución. Para ello, utiliza la genealogía de la moral de Friedrich Nietzsche y la pragmática de Gilles Deleuze.


Los Rugrats Y Don Quijote De La Mancha: La Perspectiva Diferente Entre La Realidad Y La Fantastía, Kylene Wolfe 2014 Illinois Wesleyan University

Los Rugrats Y Don Quijote De La Mancha: La Perspectiva Diferente Entre La Realidad Y La Fantastía, Kylene Wolfe

CrissCross

Al repasar la famosa novela de Miguel Cervantes, El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha, un montón de lectores atribuyen la desviación y propia perspectiva de la realidad de don Quijote a su locura. Sin embargo, cuando se examina la realidad de don Quijote y el mundo imaginativo que es la realidad del niño, se puede ver que características semejantes existen. Al examinar los protagonistas y ciertos episodios de la novela, El ingenioso hidalgo de don Quijote de la Mancha, se ve cómo la dicotomía del mundo mágico de don Quijote y del realista de Sancho Panza está explicado ...

Vindicating the Femme Fatale in Manuel Antín’s Circe

The present article analyzes a classic Argentine film noir, Circe, to explore its representation of a powerful, autonomous female protagonist ahead of the historical moment of 1964. The director Manuel Antín creates a film adaptation that departs from the source text by Julio Cortázar by focalizing the motivations and actions of a female character that flouts societal expectations and mores. The article is theoretically grounded in feminist, subjectivity and film adaptation theory. The article contributes to the fields of Latin American Studies, Global Film and Media Studies, Argentine Cultural and Literary ...


Creating A Space For Love And Revolution: The Poetry Of Otto René Castillo, Kerri A. Muñoz 2014 Auburn University

Creating A Space For Love And Revolution: The Poetry Of Otto René Castillo, Kerri A. Muñoz

Dissidences

In the poetry of Otto René Castillo, the theme of community is resounding and it manifests itself in the Socialist Revolution. This paper studies how Castillo conveyed his vision of said Revolution, that is to say, of how Guatemala fit into his vision of a new worldwide order. The study begins by placing Castillo’s poetry in its artistic context and outlining his agenda that advocated that words be supported by actions. Next, a brief biography demonstrates how the poet-revolutionary lived out his agenda by committing himself to the military struggles of the Revolution. Then starts the literary analysis of ...


El Espectro De Antígona, Emmanuel Velayos 2014 New York University

El Espectro De Antígona, Emmanuel Velayos

Dissidences

A partir de una reflexión teórica que integra la filosofía ética de Emmanuel Levinas con ciertas inflexiones del pensamiento psicoanalítico, este ensayo articula la categoría de “el espectro de Antígona” para comentar una adaptación peruana de la Antígona sofoclea, escrita por José Watanabe y puesta en escena por el grupo Yuyachkani. Pero, lejos de limitarse a aplicar categorías teóricas a una determinada práctica estética; este texto establece un diálogo fructífero entre la filosofía, el psicoanálisis y la dimensión ética históricamente situada de un experimento estético reciente, todo esto con el objetivo de encontrar en los testimonios y en el texto ...
