El Spill De Jaume Roig. Estudio De Relaciones Semióticas Con La Picaresca, Raul Macias Cotano 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

El Spill De Jaume Roig. Estudio De Relaciones Semióticas Con La Picaresca, Raul Macias Cotano

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The Spill is a literary work written in the Catalan dialect of Valencia in 1460 by Jaume Roig, a prestigious doctor whose personal and public life is well known. The book presents numerous parallels with Lazarillo de Tormes, the 1554 novel written in Spanish (or “Castilian”) that has traditionally been considered the start of the picaresque genre in Spain. These similarities are so striking that it makes critics wonder if Spill may be a precedent of Lazarillo de Tormes. This dissertation studies the possible relations between those two books. The similarities are mostly thematic, for which the lens used to ...

Ansiedad Autorial Y Profesionalización De La Mujer Escritora En Las Memorias De María Martínez Sierra, Iker Gonzalez-Allende 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Ansiedad Autorial Y Profesionalización De La Mujer Escritora En Las Memorias De María Martínez Sierra, Iker Gonzalez-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

Las memorias de María Martínez Sierra (1874-1974), Una mujer por caminos de España (1952) y Gregorio y yo: Medio siglo de colaboración (1953), ambas escritas durante su largo exilio, resultan relevantes para profundizar en la tensión que numerosas escritoras padecían en la primera mitad del siglo XX entre su deseo de permanecer en un segundo plano de la esfera pública y la reivindicación de sus logros intelectuales. El uso de los distintos nombres que utilizó la autora para fi rmar sus obras también revela dicha tensión. Si publicó su primer libro, Cuentos breves (1899), como María de la O Lejárraga ...

Finding Inspiration In Darkness: The Exploration Of Obscurity In Romanticism Through The Works Of Lord Byron And Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, Sarah E. Seal 2016 East Tennessee State University

Finding Inspiration In Darkness: The Exploration Of Obscurity In Romanticism Through The Works Of Lord Byron And Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, Sarah E. Seal

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Through the works of Lord Byron and Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, I explored the function of the themes of darkness and obscurity in Romanticism. There was a clear connection between the inclusion of these themes and the rejection of the Enlightenment period, which is what I focused on in this thesis. I discovered that the Romantics found inspiration and beauty in the darker, stranger aspects of the natural world, while rejecting the logical and rational beliefs of the Enlightenment.


“The Hour Of The Furnaces: Collaborative Cinema’S Fragmentary Form”, Eunha Choi 2016 Independent Scholar

“The Hour Of The Furnaces: Collaborative Cinema’S Fragmentary Form”, Eunha Choi

Dissidences

Cinematic structure remains constitutively collaborative. While critics like André Bazin have described cinema as mixed or impure, this article advances the concept of cinema as collaborative aesthetics. The conventional understanding of collaboration is that it represents aggregation, namely the gradual growth toward a total and completed whole. After all, collaborative practice generally works toward identifiable goals. Conversely, I argue here that The Hour of the Furnaces shows us how cinematic collaboration also operates by subtractions, unresolved dissonances, unfinished instances, and contradictions rather than syntheses or cohesive totality. Despite the filmmakers’ express intentions, I contend that their political documentary film lacks ...

Espacio, Movimiento Y Afecto En Lumpérica Y Vaca Sagrada, De Diamela Eltit, Alberto Lopez Martin

Dissidences

En este trabajo analizo dos de las novelas más significativas de la autora chilena Diamela Eltit, Lumpérica y Vaca sagrada. Presto especial atención a la forma en que la autora plasma en su prosa el uso del cuerpo como significante y la conceptualización del lenguaje como espacio, al tiempo que aporto ejemplos textuales de la noción de zonas de dolor, acuñada por la propia Eltit. Si bien la crítica se ha referido a sus novelas como ficciones elusivas de su cualidad representativa, ningún trabajo hasta la fecha las ha estudiado desde la teoría no-representacional de Nigel Thrift, sumamente relevante por ...

En Missing. Una investigación, el escritor y cineasta chileno Alberto Fuguet desarrolla una variación sobre el tema de la búsqueda del progenitor desaparecido. Al principio, dice, se proponía novelar la conflictiva relación con su padre; al encontrar a su tío Carlos encuentra simultáneamente la historia de la relación de éste con su progenitor (el abuelo del novelista), y del mismo con esa otra autoridad suprafamiliar que es el ...

Masculinidades En Crisis Y Prácticas De Resistencia Feminista En La Literatura Y El Cine Españoles De Autoría Femenina, Carmen Sanchis-Sinisterra 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Masculinidades En Crisis Y Prácticas De Resistencia Feminista En La Literatura Y El Cine Españoles De Autoría Femenina, Carmen Sanchis-Sinisterra

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation examines the representation of masculinity in crisis in films and novels by contemporary female authors of Spain. The films are El último viaje de Robert Rylands by Gracia Querejeta, Te doy mis ojos by Iciar Bollaín and La vida sin mí by Isabel Coixet. The novels are Amado amo by Rosa Montero, Los aires difíciles by Almudena Grandes and La conquista del aire by Belén Gopegui. The question this dissertation asks is if by introducing male characters that lack power, control and success the works promote practices of feminist resistance. The answer is that they do but, as ...

Cervantes' "Ocho Comedias Y Ocho Entremeses Nuevos, Nunca Representados": A Theater Of Tradition And Innovation, Michael K. Predmore

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This study closely examines the eight interludes and eight full-length plays that Cervantes published in a collection on the thirteenth of September, 1615. Although these theatrical works were published together, the collection has seldom been examined in its entirety as a coherent unit. The purpose of this study, therefore, will be to re-cast a critical focus upon these theatrical works as a whole, in order to provide insight into Cervantes as both a playwright and as an inquisitive and unconventional thinker of his day. Typically, Cervantes was seen as a fairly conventional dramatist until around 1950, when a significant number ...


Science Fiction In The Spanish University: The Boundaries That Need To Be Broken, Sara Martín 2016 Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Science Fiction In The Spanish University: The Boundaries That Need To Be Broken, Sara Martín

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

The aim of this article is to trace what Rosi Braidotti calls an ‘accurate cartography’ as regards the limited space that science-fiction occupies in the Spanish university. SF has not yet overcome in Spain what Brian Baker has called its ‘crisis of legitimation’. Teaching this genre and doing research on it is, hence, still conditioned within our national borders by boundaries broken in the Anglo-American university many decades ago. Here I examine these boundaries, paying special attention to the institutional limitations preventing scholars from introducing innovations in teaching and research. Another main barrier, as I argue here, is the lack ...


La Tragedia Del Niño Muerto En La Obra De Valle-Inclán Dentro De La Tradición Grotesca, Carlos Gines Orta 2016 University Ablai Khan, Almaty, Kazakhstan

La Tragedia Del Niño Muerto En La Obra De Valle-Inclán Dentro De La Tradición Grotesca, Carlos Gines Orta

Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

There is a tragicomic character in Valle-Inclan’s works –the child who died violently- that has not been researched yet. The device within the grotesque style to use and manipulate this character in the hands of the author enables a wide range of possibilities, from the deepest feeling of tragedy to the buffoonesque laughter of the popular tradition.

Cruzando Fronteras Genéricas: La Serie Carvalho De Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, Swati Babbar

Entrehojas: Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

Resumen

Este trabajo trata de un estudio de las novelas de la Serie Carvalho, del escritor español Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, publicadas entre los finales de la dictadura de Franco y la llegada de la democracia en España. Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, un prolífico escritor que exploró con éxito diversas formas de escritura: poesía, teatro, novela, ensayo, periodismo, es también considerado el precursor del género de la novela neo-policíaca en España. Al igual que todas sus obras, sus novelas policíacas también plantean preguntas acerca del problema político, social y cultural que enfrentaba la sociedad española en ese momento histórico. Estas novelas son ...
