¿Y El Público No Cuenta? Cine, Emigración Y Estrategias De Representación (1930-1960). De La Contextualización Histórica De La Producción A La Matriz Cultural De La Significación., Luis Guadano

Dissidences

La historiografía cinematográfica española se ha basado tradicionalmente en premisas ideológicas y estéticas que reducen el estudio de las estrategias de repesentacion del cine exclusivamente a su evolución desde el punto de vista de la producción obviando la existencia del público. Así, los cambios en la representación se han abordado o políticamente como consecuencia del proceso de transición de la dictadura a la democracia o historiográficamente mediante su adscripción a las tendencias ideológicas existentes en el cine español del periodo.

Sin embargo, partiendo de la movilidad social se puede constatar que la evolución de los elementos integrantes de las estrategias ...

Place-Names In Shakespeare's Grand Design For The Henry Vi Plays, Dorothy E. Litt 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Place-Names In Shakespeare's Grand Design For The Henry Vi Plays, Dorothy E. Litt

Literary Onomastics Studies

The Henry VI plays of Shakespeare are among his earliest and first of his English history cycle. In them occur a profusion of topographical references which add an imaginative geographical dimension to the panorama of English history: the power struggle between the contending factions of Lancaster and York, the battles with France in the Hundred Years' War, and the internal upheaval of the Cade revolt.

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.

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 ...

Tom Stoppard And Ferenc Molnar: A Comparison Of Onomastics, Elizabeth M. Rajec

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, the introductory paragraph is included here.

Tom Stoppard's hilarious play Rough Crossing was premiered in London in 1984. It had been freely adapted from Ferenc Molnar's classic farce Jatek a kastelyban (literally 'Play at the Castle'). The original play was first produced in Budapest in 1925. Most likely Stoppard's adaptation is based on P. G. Wodehouse's English translation known as The Play's the Thing which premiered in 1926 at the Henry Miller Theatre in New York.


Naming And Namelessness In Jose Ruibal's La Maquina De Pedir, Wayne H. Finke 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Naming And Namelessness In Jose Ruibal's La Maquina De Pedir, Wayne H. Finke

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, here is the introductory paragraph of the article.

During the nearly forty-year regime of Generalissimo Francisco Franco, Spain's literary production entered a period of semi-dormancy occasioned by severe limitations of censorship and repression of creative energies, particularly in the area of the theater.1 While theaters, especially in Madrid, were economically solvent and successful, the dramatic offerings presented onstage in the main afforded audiences inoffensive fare of bourgeois superficiality with scant, or virtually no probing of the complex realities of post-Civil War Spain.2 Writers who remained in Spain following the devastation were constrained ...


Nominal Jests In Shakespeare's Plays, Dorothy E. Litt 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Nominal Jests In Shakespeare's Plays, Dorothy E. Litt

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu of an abstract, this is the first paragraph of the article.

Nominal jests were very popular among the literati of the English Renaissance. The plays and poems of the period are studded with name-play, and Shakespeare, with his lively mind, excelled at the game. 1 Much has been written of his jests on his own name in the Sonnets 2 and on his name usage in the plays. 3 Although much name-play may at times seem trivial or obvious, when it appears in a consistent pattern linked to the play's function we may gain insight into Shakespeare ...


Name-Calling As Power Play In Shakespeare's 1 Henry Iv, Frederick M. Burelbach 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Name-Calling As Power Play In Shakespeare's 1 Henry Iv, Frederick M. Burelbach

Literary Onomastics Studies

In lieu on an abstract, here are a few sentences from an early paragraph of the article.

The main premise of this paper is that name-calling- as when youngsters call each other Fatty, Skinny, or Sissy-is a form of authorship as well as an instrument used in maintaining social norms. The name-caller is creating a specific role for the victim by use of a name with particular denotations, connotations, and assumed social values. By so doing, the name-caller is defining an appropriate scope of action or behavior, with expected patterns of response to external events- a plot, if you will- ...
