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 ...

La Psicología Como Conexión Entre Las Obras De Gilman, Lispector, Y Valenzuela, Sarah Singsank 2014 University of Minnesota Morris Digital Well

La Psicología Como Conexión Entre Las Obras De Gilman, Lispector, Y Valenzuela, Sarah Singsank

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

Using the psychoanalytic approach, I examine The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, A imitação da rosa by Clarice Lispector, and Cambio de armas by Luisa Valenzuela, particularly noting a common use of defense mechanisms between the stories. Additionally, I propose an expanded use of the psychoanalytic approach that includes the theories of other psychologists (not just Freud) and use it to inform alternative interpretations of the texts.


Leocadia, La Raptada: Una Representación Verdadera De Una Víctima De Trauma En La Literatura Cervantina, Darcy M. Gabriel 2014 University of Minnesota Morris Digital Well

Leocadia, La Raptada: Una Representación Verdadera De Una Víctima De Trauma En La Literatura Cervantina, Darcy M. Gabriel

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

While it began as a study of the numerous fainting spells in La fuerza de la sangre by Cervantes, his paper focuses on re-exploring Leocadia as a victim of trauma. By combining narratology and psychology, I explore the ways in which Leocadia is a victim of trauma. Narratology not only helps the exploration of Leocadia’s psychology, but also assists in understanding how the ways Leocadia’s story is told affects her psychologically. This combination of approaches leads to the conclusion that Leocadia’s story is a realistic representation of a victimized woman.


Un Análisis De Personajes Menores En La Novela De Cómo Las Muchachas García Perdieron El Acento Por Julia Álvarez: ¿Cómo Representan La Idea Del Transculturación Laura García Y Chucha?, Molly Donovan 2014 University of Minnesota Morris Digital Well

Un Análisis De Personajes Menores En La Novela De Cómo Las Muchachas García Perdieron El Acento Por Julia Álvarez: ¿Cómo Representan La Idea Del Transculturación Laura García Y Chucha?, Molly Donovan

Scholarly Horizons: University of Minnesota, Morris Undergraduate Journal

This work explores the identities and experiences of two minor characters (Laura García and Chucha) in Julia Alvarez' iconic work, How the García Girls Lost Their Accents. The essay compares and contrasts their experiences as women, as 'otras', and as immigrants. In studying how identities and perceptions change as borders are crossed, one can see how arbitrary status and social position can be. The characters examined in this essay exemplify two very different immigration experiences, which allows readers to remember the unique circumstances of all migrants. Written in Spanish.

Knowledge Of Adjective Reference By Monolingual Spanish- And English-Speaking Children, Martha Elizabeth Rayas Tanaka 2014 Western University

Knowledge Of Adjective Reference By Monolingual Spanish- And English-Speaking Children, Martha Elizabeth Rayas Tanaka

Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

Previous studies (Waxman, Senghas and Benveniste, 1997 and Waxman and Guasti 2009) have concluded that there are crosslinguistic differences in the interpretation of adjectives by English, French, Spanish and Italian- monolingual speaking children. Their results show that only Spanish and Italian-speaking children categorized a novel adjective as an object responding in the same way for the categorization of a noun. According to the authors this is due to the Determiner-Adjective syntactic constructions in these languages that refer to the named objects or entities and to other members of that object category (e.g. los pobres). The present study looks more ...


Guatemalan Spanish As Act Of Identity: An Analysis Of Language And Minor Literature Within Modern Maya Literary Production, Kenneth Yanes 2014 The Graduate Center, CUNY

Guatemalan Spanish As Act Of Identity: An Analysis Of Language And Minor Literature Within Modern Maya Literary Production, Kenneth Yanes

Dissertations and Theses, 2014-Present

My study approaches the use of Guatemalan Spanish in modern Maya literary works through a theoretical framework drawn on theories of "purity" and mestizaje, the concept of minor literature, and "image" and ideology of language. I problematize the "major"/"minor" dichotomy of language based on a Eurocentric view of the dominance of national languages as the extremely diverse linguistic ecology of Latin American lends itself to the deterritorialization of hegemonic discourse, but without sustaining a neat categorization of language. Guatemalan Spanish is a heavily Maya-inflected interlanguage share by all Guatemalans. Mayan writers chose purposefully to counter the ladino ethnocentrism of ...

What's The Subjunctive, Again? Preparing English Speakers For Learning Spanish, Emmy Lou Pearl Olsen 2014 Western Oregon University

What's The Subjunctive, Again? Preparing English Speakers For Learning Spanish, Emmy Lou Pearl Olsen

Honors Senior Theses/Projects

Fostering communicative competence goes far beyond throwing students into conversation groups. A communicative approach to language teaching involves using authentic language from the very beginning of instruction, presenting real or at least plausible language tasks, and focusing on use of language not on specific grammatical function. What this tends to mean for a classroom is much less time spent on explicit grammar instruction and more time spent on students “getting their hands dirty” and exploring the language for themselves. For all the shifting away from constant grammar lessons in second language teaching, there is still a time when some of ...


Racismo Y Xenofobia: Representaciones De La Comunidad Asiática En La Prensa Española, Kathryn Lee Hughes 2014 Dickinson College

Racismo Y Xenofobia: Representaciones De La Comunidad Asiática En La Prensa Española, Kathryn Lee Hughes

Honors Theses By Year

Ves una foto: un grupo de unos jóvenes asiáticos, todos vestidos con ropa que indica que son turistas (las camisetas rojas con la palabra, “London” escrito bajo una imagen de la bandera británica) posando con un libro. Al mirar con más detenimiento, observas que el libro lleva un título chocante: Maldito chino. Esta imagen, que está disponible en la página de Facebook de Paco López Mengual, el autor de Maldito chino, lleva una descripción que explica que esos jóvenes, en vez de sentirse ofendidos por el título y el argumento de la novela, tienen ganas de “saludar” al autor. Las ...

Compositions In Black And Brown: Manifestations Of Afro-Latinity In U.S. Black Latino/A Literary Discourse, Janelle Chevon Coleman 2014 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Compositions In Black And Brown: Manifestations Of Afro-Latinity In U.S. Black Latino/A Literary Discourse, Janelle Chevon Coleman

Doctoral Dissertations

Through an analysis of the literature by Afro-Latino writers Junot Díaz, Evelio Grillo, Piri Thomas and Loida Maritza Pérez, my dissertation shows how the multifaceted nature of Afro-Latino/a identity and culture is reflected in the works of three novels written by Spanish-speaking authors who self-identify as Afro-Caribbean Americans. I use criticism from such scholars as Juan Flores, Miriam Jiménez, and Jorge Gracia to show that U.S. Afro-Latinity is not representative of an essence, but rather of a set of common manifestations resulting from conflicting concepts of race and ethnicity. I assert that U.S. Black Latinos not only ...


Ibn Hazm: An Islamic Source Of Courtly Love, Daniel Nathan Hickman 2014 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Ibn Hazm: An Islamic Source Of Courtly Love, Daniel Nathan Hickman

Doctoral Dissertations

The objective of this study is to explore the Hispano-Arabic theory of origin of courtly love, discuss and define its characteristic features, and ultimately suggest that the eleventh century discourse on love, Tawq al-Hamamah (The Ring of the Dove) written in 1022 by Ibn Hazm al-Andalusi, functioned as a major influence in the formation of courtly love, particularly in the Iberian Peninsula. For over a century and a half, scholars have suggested that this unique code of behavior was codified in The Art of Courtly Love, a treatise on love written by Andreas Capellanus. These scholars submit that ...
