The aim of this thesis is to examine critically the novels of Azuela in view of the known facts of the Mexican Revolution principally as they touch upon the religious, social, economic, and political aspects.

A History Of The Czechs In Knox County, Nebraska, Joseph John Van Hoff Jul 1938

A History Of The Czechs In Knox County, Nebraska, Joseph John Van Hoff

Open-Access* Master's Theses from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln

When the average person thinks of the Czech settlements of Nebraska, he is apt to have in mind the large numbers of this national group who are located in the comparatively centralized area of Douglas, Saunders, Butler, Saline, and Colfax Counties. Few seem to realize that one of the larger of the Czech settlements of the state is to be found in Knox County, a section considerably removed, and having relatively few contacts with the Czechs in the above-mentioned counties.

It is the purpose of this thesis to tell the story of these Knox County Czechs. In it effort will ...


Lo Castizo In The Theatre Of Jacinto Benavente, Lois M. Beckett Aug 1937

Lo Castizo In The Theatre Of Jacinto Benavente, Lois M. Beckett

Spanish and Portuguese ETDs

Jacinto Benavente, known as the creator of the modern drama of Spain, has been the subject of controversial opinions. One reason may be that he has continued to write after his own manner and ideas despite the initial reception accorded him by Spanish critics and audiences. Another cause may conceivably be that his theatre differs strikingly in outward appearance from that of the Golden Age. A third reason is undoubtedly that Benavente has come to be popular with his own people after a patient struggle against their indignation, and he has been recognized as a writer of first importance.

Some Recurrences Of The Don Quixote-Sancho Panza Pair In World Literature, J. Angie Wynn

It is not the purpose of this study to consider the influence of Don Quixote on World Literature in general, but rather to describe the imitations of Don Quixote in the works of three famous authors.

Neogongorismo And Gongora In Contemporary Spanish-American Poetry, Clyde M. Denton Jun 1937

Neogongorismo And Gongora In Contemporary Spanish-American Poetry, Clyde M. Denton

Spanish and Portuguese ETDs

My purpose in this paper is twofold.

I shall substantiate my deductions wherever possible with actual critical and poetic references.

To do this, picaresque literature will be studied from the first known novels to the present time. This peculiar form of literature will be compared with Spanish life as well and with the life reflected in the folklore of New Mexico.

Spain's Problem As Seen By Her Eminent Contemporary Essayists, Nina Porter Fatjo

Spanish and Portuguese ETDs

The vision of a new Spain obsessed with the Generation of 1898, but this unanimity split when cause and remedy were sought. Some preached reform through the regeneration of Spanish values, other through Europeanization--an infiltration of modern though and culture from Europe.

It is the purpose of this thesis to learn by a study of the works of the leading essayists what each considered the cause of Spain's decadence and what remedy each thought the best medicine for the malady.

The Spanish Folksong In New Mexico, Tonia Ann Komadina Jan 1934

The Spanish Folksong In New Mexico, Tonia Ann Komadina

Spanish and Portuguese ETDs

When the Spaniards came to New Mexico, driven by a lust for gold, they brought with them the tradition of song which has been an inestimable treasure for succeeding generations. Their descendants and the descendants of the settlers who came north from Mexico clung to the precedent established by their ancestors; they sang old songs, composed new ones, and passed them down to their children by word of mouth transmission.

In this study an attempt has been made to trace briefly the development of the song in its various forms, from the sixteenth century to the present day canción de ...

The plays of each of these divisions will be carefully studied and specific cases will ...
