Staging Dante Today: A Three-Day Residency Of Teatro Delle Albe At The University Of Pennsylvania, Giulio Genovese Dec 2019

Staging Dante Today: A Three-Day Residency Of Teatro Delle Albe At The University Of Pennsylvania, Giulio Genovese

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Giulio Genovese reports on last spring’s visit from Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari, founders of the Teatro delle Albe in 1983. They shared their experience with Dante Alighieri and his relationship with the city of Ravenna. The Teatro delle Albe staged the “Inferno” (2017) and the “Purgatorio” (2019), and they will celebrate the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death in 2021 with a new performance.

Dante Translating, Robin Kirkpatrick Dec 2019

Dante Translating, Robin Kirkpatrick

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay is intended as a discussion document. Its argument is that translation does not involve a search for conclusive authority but is rather a performative act, engaging the reader of a translation as well as its author in close critical engagement with the text. This may be said even in considering the translation of Dante’s Commedia—a work which all too often is thought to aim at final, definitive utterance.


“A Simple Sucking Of The Teeth:” Beckett, Dante And The “Risus Purus”, Scott Annett Dec 2019

“A Simple Sucking Of The Teeth:” Beckett, Dante And The “Risus Purus”, Scott Annett

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Samuel Beckett’s “Dante postcards” record the first three smiles to be found in the Purgatorio. In doing so, Becket draws attention to a gesture that has recently received significant critical attention within Dante studies. These postcards suggest Beckett’s alertness to the complexity of face to face encounters within the Commedia, while also providing an opportunity to consider the extent to which facial expressions are significant within Beckett’s own writing. In this essay, I argue that the postcards can be read alongside Beckett’s early novels, in particular, Murphy (English 1938, French 1947) and Watt (English 1953, French ...


Carlino’S Crossings: Stuart Hood, Dante And A Civil War In Tuscany (1943-4), Nick Havely Dec 2019

Carlino’S Crossings: Stuart Hood, Dante And A Civil War In Tuscany (1943-4), Nick Havely

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The essay – which forms part of a larger project on travelers across the Tuscan Apennines – addresses three aspects of Dante’s presence in the region: first the poet's documented associations with and references to the mountains in which Stuart Hood (1915-2011) would find himself during the later years of World War II; secondly how readers of Dante had traced those associations within this landscape, especially during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (from the rise of bourgeois tourism to the Second World War); and thirdly Hood's wartime journeys in the Apennines and the relevance of his reading of Dante ...


Materiality And Textuality: Editing And Rewriting The Lyric Dante In History, Laura Banella Dec 2019

Materiality And Textuality: Editing And Rewriting The Lyric Dante In History, Laura Banella

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

The paper presents the MaTeLDa project (Materiality and Textuality: Editing and Rewriting the Lyric Dante in History, Università degli Studi di Padova, 2018-2020), which offers an interdisciplinary study of how Dante was received and ‘canonized’ in late medieval and early modern Italy. MaTeLDa envisages the analysis of a selection of Dante’s texts in material contexts, and of specific instances of the circulation and reception of his lyric poetry, thereby laying the basis for a better understanding of medieval and early modern authoriality; the qualities of books as ‘textual objects;’ and the ways in which context, form, and annotation in ...


Editions Of Dante In Bookshop Inventories Between The Fifteenth And The Sixteenth Centuries, A Bookshop Ledger And A Contract For Printing: Some Possible Interpretations, Elena Gatti Dec 2019

Editions Of Dante In Bookshop Inventories Between The Fifteenth And The Sixteenth Centuries, A Bookshop Ledger And A Contract For Printing: Some Possible Interpretations, Elena Gatti

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay compares three inventories (of warehouses and bookshops) and a ledger - all datable to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries - to assess the influence of the commentaries for the fortunes of Dante’s Commedia and the reading tastes of readers in Bologna and Ferrara. It will also provide a brief history of the reception of Dante’s works in this period.


“La Guerra De La Pietate:” Dante’S Definition Of Moral Subject In The ‘Inferno’, Thomas Rendall Dec 2019

“La Guerra De La Pietate:” Dante’S Definition Of Moral Subject In The ‘Inferno’, Thomas Rendall

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Although a pun on the word pietà has been widely recognized in Virgil’s rebuke to Dante for pitying the diviners and sorcerers in Inferno20, the possibility of a double meaning for the word in the poem’s statement of the subject in Canto 2 has generally been ignored. That a pun is present, however, is supported by the source for this passage in the meeting between the hero and his father in Book 6 of the Aeneid—a context in which the word’s Latin root meaning “filial piety” is clearly implied. By the Early Middle Ages “duty to ...


"Sonus Qui Non Est Vox:" Sound And Voice In The Body Politic, Alison Cornish Dec 2019

"Sonus Qui Non Est Vox:" Sound And Voice In The Body Politic, Alison Cornish

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

From the knocking on the gate after Macbeth’s murder of Duncan to the sound of Ugolino’s teeth on the skull of his enemy, the suicide’s violent excretion of words and blood, Calvino’s “king who listens,” the Sicilian bull and the heavenly talking eagle, this essay considers the difference between the sound made by a voice and sounds that are merely instrumental or artificial as a feature of the body politic indicative of tyranny or justice.


Deconstructing Cultural Food Borders: The Creation Of New Latinidades In Latina Literature Through Consumption, Elizabeth Vigil Feb 2019

Deconstructing Cultural Food Borders: The Creation Of New Latinidades In Latina Literature Through Consumption, Elizabeth Vigil

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

This research explores contemporary Latinx literature to examine the way discourse about food is presented as a form of socio-cultural control through the demand for culturally regulated forms of consumption. Judgmental discourse in what is said about food, how it is said, and expected behaviors of consumption are tied to the creation of a collective Latinx cultural identity. This cultural identity and its expected authenticity revolve around eating foods that are considered static segments of Puerto Rican cultural tradition. It works to assess expectations of identity which are forced upon individuals. This investigation looks at how the refusal of cultural ...


Gendering Of Home And Homelessness In Latinx Literature, Maria P. Ahumada Feb 2019

Gendering Of Home And Homelessness In Latinx Literature, Maria P. Ahumada

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

This research interrogates the gendering of notions of home and homelessness using the theoretical framing of Anzaldúa in a critical analysis of the works of Sandra Cisneros in The House on Mango Street, and Helena Maria Viramontes' The Moths and Other Stories. The women in these narrative struggle with the societal expectations that are imposed on them through patriarchal ideals, which invade the spaces of their home. This framework can lead to a sense of outsiderness and feelings of homelessness within the home for women when they realize that they are being oppressed by a dominant culture.


On Being As Passage And Plurality Of Self: Postcolonial Caribbean Identity In Merle Hodge's Crick Crack, Monkey, Amanda González Izquierdo Feb 2019

On Being As Passage And Plurality Of Self: Postcolonial Caribbean Identity In Merle Hodge's Crick Crack, Monkey, Amanda González Izquierdo

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

This essay examines questions of home and identity in a postcolonial Caribbean context. Situating itself in the dialogue between continental philosophy and postcolonial theory, this research explores how identity formations are processes which negotiate fragmentary demands of being as well as the various ruptures and dislocations that are resultants of colonization. This paper proposes that in thinking of postcolonial identities, we must explicitly and necessarily consider multiplicity, alterity, diaspora, and interstitial spaces. Focusing on Merle Hodge's novel Crick Crack, Monkey, this essay thinks through protagonist Tee's process of becoming, a process which is fluid, dynamic, and never complete ...


Ritratto Di Un Uomo Con Simboli: Lorenzo Lotto On Vice And Virtue, Victor Hurtado Feb 2019

Ritratto Di Un Uomo Con Simboli: Lorenzo Lotto On Vice And Virtue, Victor Hurtado

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

The art of Lorenzo de Tomasso Lotto (1480-1557) has until recently gained critical attention. Lotto, born in Venice to Tomasso Lotto, lived and traveled throughout Italy. The Portrait of Man with Allegorical Symbols on display at the El Paso Museum of Art is one of Lotto’s most elusive paintings. A man of about thirty years of age is portrayed on a neutral background and divides a set of six allegorical symbols in axially. He gestures toward a set of three symbols hanging from a festoon of laurel leaves: an armillary sphere, intertwined palm branches, and a full-blown bladder. A ...


Just War Theory: A Shift In Perspective, Hermes Rocha Feb 2019

Just War Theory: A Shift In Perspective, Hermes Rocha

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

War is an extreme human activity—not only because of the horror of war, but because of the severe emotional, physical, psychological, and moral strain it has on its combatants. Understanding war from the combatant’s point of view is hard enough without personally experiencing war. Without the direct experience of combat, an epistemic gap lies between one who knows what it is like and those lucky enough not to experience it. Consequently, the theoretical propositions of just and unjust conduct in war become difficult to support. I argue that just war theory and its tenets such as jus in ...


Voices Of Duranguito: A Barrio Under Siege, Johanna M. Lopez Velador Feb 2019

Voices Of Duranguito: A Barrio Under Siege, Johanna M. Lopez Velador

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

Duranguito, the historic first neighborhood of El Paso, Texas, is on the verge of being destroyed. Through the use of oral histories, the experiences of the people who currently live there and those who protect it are captured to tell the unique history of a low income and mostly immigrant elderly community. At this time of turmoil, it is important to capture oral histories in order to highlight the sense of community felt among the residents before those memories are lost. Over one-third of the residents have been displaced already and many others are under threat of being displaced over ...
