Against Representation: A Note On Jorge Luis Borges’ Aleph, Ilan Stavans 2017 Amherst College

Against Representation: A Note On Jorge Luis Borges’ Aleph, Ilan Stavans

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Faced with the need to represent Jorge Luis Borges’s classic tale “The Aleph,” which also gives name to his 1949 collection of stories, for decades publishers have resorted to a variety of dependable images, including works by Borges’s friend Xul Solar. Yet the argument of the tale is that no human language, either verbal or visual, is capable of summing up the fullness of the object Borges’s narrator discovers in a dark Buenos Aires basement. That object—the universe itself—is unrepresentable.


El Universo Posthumano De "Lágrimas En La Lluvia": Memoria Artificial, Identidad, Historia Y Ficción, Juan C. Martin Galvan 2017 Stonehill College, MA

El Universo Posthumano De "Lágrimas En La Lluvia": Memoria Artificial, Identidad, Historia Y Ficción, Juan C. Martin Galvan

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

Cary Wolfe señala que el poshumanismo se suele concentrar en “el descentramiento de lo humano en relación a las coordenadas tanto evolutivas, ecológicas o tecnológicas” (xvi). En este sentido, Lágrimas en la lluvia, novela de ciencia ficción de la autora madrileña Rosa Montero, construye con bastante acierto una versión poshumana de una sociedad futura, partiendo del fenómeno neuro-cognitivo complejo que representa la memoria biológica y su duplicación artificial a través de avances tecnológicos. Este artículo se enfoca principalmente en delinear cómo en la novela de Montero la memoria se convierte en una sugerente metáfora para profundizar de manera crítica en ...


El Arte De "Lágrimas En La Lluvia", Todd K. Mack 2017 Southern Utah University

El Arte De "Lágrimas En La Lluvia", Todd K. Mack

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

Uno de los elementos destacados de Lágrimas en la lluvia, la excelente novela de ciencia ficción de la madrileña Rosa Montero, es la genial inclusión de obras de arte con fines simbólicos dentro de la obra. Entre estas obras de arte se incluye el famoso cuadro de Johannes Vermeer, Una señora escribiendo una carta con su criada. En este artículo, el dr. Todd Mack muestra cómo este cuadro presagia el principal dilema de la protagonista de la novela. Bruna Husky es una replicante, y por eso sabe exactamente cuánto tiempo vivirá. El conocimiento de su inescapable fin hace imposible que ...


Neoliberalism In The Gutter: Latin American Comics And Society Since The 1990s, Mauricio Espinoza 2017 University of Cincinnati

Neoliberalism In The Gutter: Latin American Comics And Society Since The 1990s, Mauricio Espinoza

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Since the 1990s, Latin America has undergone important economic, social, political, and cultural transformations marked by the consolidation of neoliberal policies that swept through the region and helped define its contemporary societies. This essay explores comic books and cartoons produced by Latin American artists during this period, interrogating the various ways in which the graphic narrative medium has both reflected and reacted against neoliberalism’s impact throughout the continent. Through the use of political cartooning, superhero comics, and graphic novels that employ supernatural themes, the artists analyzed here have engaged with the big, contentious issues of contemporary Latin America, including ...

Cruzando Fronteras De Género(S): La Dislocación Del "Bildungsroman" Y La Construcción Política Del Sujeto, Silvia Roig 2017 Borough of Manhattan Community College-CUNY

Cruzando Fronteras De Género(S): La Dislocación Del "Bildungsroman" Y La Construcción Política Del Sujeto, Silvia Roig

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

This study shows that Aurora Bertrana’s novels subvert the traditional Bildungsroman and uses the techniques of the Novel of Female Development with (auto) biographical characteristics. The core of my analysis is in the friction, the disruption and the confrontation between the subject and the social system represented by the family, the school and the community. Bertrana’s novels underline that men, similarly to women, are under a strong pressure to adopt a specific role according to heterosexual norms. Bertrana’s work demonstrate that women writers, like men, can introduce social, cultural and political innovations and experiment with a new ...

“Vidas virtuales, memorias postizas: teorías de la identidad personal en Lágrimas en la lluvia

En Lágrimas en la lluvia (2011) de Rosa Montero, mientras la detective tecnohumana Bruna Husky investiga un complot para exterminar los replicantes del Madrid del siglo XXII, se despliega un estudio profundo sobre qué es la identidad. Se presentan en la novela varias teorías de la identidad personal, con divergentes posturas sobre los estados mentales y emocionales, las memorias personales, la pervivencia corporal, la esencia espiritual y la posibilidad de la existencia del alma. Bruna paulatinamente llega a aceptar que su identidad surge de un proceso ...

On the Road to Nowhere:

A Reading of Franz Galich’s Managua, Salsa City (¡Devórame otra vez!)

This article examines how Franz Galich, in Managua, Salsa City (¡Devórame otra vez!), narrates the Central American neoliberal experience from the perspective of the underprivileged. I explore how, beginning with the title, the author positions his protagonists in the neoliberal, fragmented moment. From there, Galich proceeds to document a night in the life of the marginalized. Here, Beatriz Cortez’s concept of cinismo is used to understand how the role-playing, that is central to the novel, brings into question arbitrary social barriers. In ...


China And The Politics Of Cross–Cultural Representation In Interwar European Fiction, Carles Prado-Fonts 2017 Universitat Oberta de Catalunya

China And The Politics Of Cross–Cultural Representation In Interwar European Fiction, Carles Prado-Fonts

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "China and the Politics of Cross–Cultural Representation in Interwar European Fiction" Carles Prado-Fonts analyzes Joan Crespi's La ciutat de la por (The City of Fear, 1930) to illustrate the varied representations of China in interwar Europe. In the 1920s and 1930s, a plurality of views on China and the Chinese people became widespread across different parts of Europe, mainly shaped by English, French, and German representations. Contradictory images of China coexisted in literature, thought, and popular culture. Crespi's work exemplifies these contradictions: China appears as both an attainable reality and an unreachable fantasy, two ...


The Sin Of Pride In Dressing Bodies In Spanish And Anglo-American Ballads, Ana Belén Martínez García 2017 University of Navarra

The Sin Of Pride In Dressing Bodies In Spanish And Anglo-American Ballads, Ana Belén Martínez García

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "The Sin of Pride in Dressing Bodies in Spanish and Anglo-American Ballads" Ana Belén Martínez García argues that trying to decipher the reasons for characters to dress in a certain way may help discover the underlying sociocultural mechanisms that prevail. The author aims to reveal the gender divide associated to clothing through a comparative approach towards popular literature in Spanish and English. She uses Judith Butler's theory of performative acts in order to conduct the text analysis. Clothes-related acts feature prominently in the case of popular balladry. Spanish "romances" and Anglo-American ballads are poems that were ...
