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 ...


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

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 ...


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

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 Bowdoin College

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 Bowdoin College

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 Bowdoin College

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', Daria Cohen 2014 Bowdoin College

Vindicating The Femme Fatale In Manuel Antín’S 'Circe', Daria Cohen

Dissidences

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 Bowdoin College

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 Bowdoin College

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 ...

"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 ...
