Summary Book Review Catholic Iconography in the Novels of Juan Marsé :

Download or read book in PDF Catholic Iconography in the Novels of Juan Marsé written by Rosemary Clark and published by Tamesis Books. This book was released on 2003 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Post-Civil War novelist Marsé subverts iconic Catholic imagery in ironic sub-textual commentary on political ideology. The prize-winning novelist Juan Marsé, born in Barcelona in 1933, is widely-read not only within Spain but also in translation, for his often provocative portrayals of life in post-war Barcelona. Clark's study discusses Marsé's engagement with Catholic popular culture, Spanish National Catholicism and Catalan Catholic Nationalism, exploring his subversion of iconic imagery as an ironic sub-textual commentary on political ideology, by which he is able to experiment with outer reality and inner reconstructions of experience. Dr Clark shows how religious and profane visions of love are subtly intertwined, how the tales told by children and the novel form itself are interrelated, and finally how a variety of biblical topoi, ranging from the Garden of Eden to the Song of Songs, are deployed in Marsé's fiction. Particular attention is paid to La oscura historia de la prima Montse, Si te dicen que caand Im genes y recuerdos. ROSEMARY CLARK lectures in the department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Cambridge. El novelista Juan Marsé, nacido en Barcelona en 1933 y ganador de varios premios internacionales, es un autor muy leído no solamente en España sino también en otros países del mundo, a través de traducciones, y su obra se aprecia especialmente por sus descripciones provocativas de la vida cotidiana en la Barcelona de posguerra. La monografía de Clark analiza el profundo interés que sentía Marsé por la cultura popular católica y el nacionalcatolicismo - tanto en su forma española como en su forma catalana. Demuestra que la manera en qrsé utiliza los íconos y las proyeciones visuales del Catolicismo constituye un comentario irónico y sutil sobre la ideología política de la época franquista. Las novelas de Marsé - especialmente La oscura historia de latse, Si te dicen que caí y Imágenes y recuerdos -- exploran los lindes entre la realidad objetiva y la reconstrucción sujetiva de aquella realidad en el mundo de la ficción.

Download or read book in PDF Spanish Writers on Gay and Lesbian Themes written by David William Foster and published by Greenwood Publishing Group. This book was released on 1999 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Spanish literature is one of the major European literatures, with an extensive array of canonical and important writers from the Middle Ages to the present. Because Spain was a crossroads of Christian, Jewish, and Islamic cultures, its cultural traditions weave together issues related to homoerotic practices and beliefs in a particularly complex way. Because literature reflects culture, numerous Spanish authors explore gay and lesbian themes in their writings. This reference includes alphabetically arranged entries for more than 50 Spanish writers whose works treat gay and lesbian themes, including Miguel de Unamuno, Ignatius of Loyola, Federico Garcia Lorca, Juana de la Cruz, and Teresa de Arila. Each entry provides a brief biographical profile, a discussion of gay and lesbian themes in the author's works, and a brief bibliography. The volume also includes entries for several artists active in other media, whose works provide a context for homoeroticism in Spanish culture. The book includes an extensive introductory essay and a bibliography of major studies.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Gothic Terrors brings together two discursive fields that have had very little contact hitherto: Gothic Studies and Hispanism. Though widely accepted in English studies, Hispanists seldom invoke the concept of a Gothic mode existing beyond its first appearance in the eighteenth century. Highlighting Gothic elements in mainstream Spanish fiction from the nineteenth century until the present day, Lee Six challenges the view that Spanish writers rejected what the Gothic had to offer. Through close study of texts by Benito Pérez Galdós, Emilia Pardo Bazán, Miguel de Unamuno, Camilo José Cela, Adelaida García Morales, Espido Freire, and Javier García Sánchez, Lee Six traces the evolution of three staples of the Gothic: the heroine imprisoned on grounds of madness, the doubled or split character, and the use of violent, gory description. Persuasively argued and well researched, Gothic Terrors reflects on the Gothic presence in Spanish mainstream literature and identifies two important ways in which it crosses cultural divides: the traditional gulf between high and low culture within Spain, and the engagement of Spanish creative writers with transnational literary trends. Gothic Terrors will thus appeal to Gothic scholars who are interested in the Spanish dimension of their field, as well as to Hispanists who may have been unaware of how relevant and useful Gothic studies could be for them."--Publisher's website.

Download or read book in PDF Esther Tusquets written by Nina L. Molinaro and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2014-06-12 with total page 255 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The present volume reviews and revisits the life and work of Spanish writer, editor, and intellectual Esther Tusquets (1936–2012). The author of some seven novels, three collections of short stories, two books for children, seven volumes of essays and memoirs, and an extensive corpus of journalistic and other short prose texts, Tusquets’s contributions to contemporary Spanish culture and literature are vast and heterogeneous. Most academic scholarship to date has been dedicated to Tusquets’s groundbreaking novelistic trilogy (El mismo mar de todos los veranos [1978], El amor es un juego solitario [1979], Varada tras el último naufragio [1980]) and to her unified short-story collection, Siete miradas en el mismo paisaje (1979). The essays contained in Esther Tusquets: Scholarly Correspondences offer new readings of the author’s canonical fiction and delve into the largely unexplored terrain of her non-fiction. Participating faculty-scholars include Nina L. Molinaro (University of Colorado at Boulder); Maureen Tobin Stanley (University of Minnesota Duluth); Inmaculada Pertusa-Seva (Western Kentucky University); Laura Lonsdale (Queen’s College, University of Oxford); Stacey Dolgin Casado (University of Georgia); Abigail Lee Six (Royal Holloway, University of London); María Elena Soliño (University of Houston); Mayte de Lama (Elon University); Catherine G. Bellver (University of Nevada, Las Vegas); Rosalía Cornejo Parriego (University of Ottawa); Meri Torras Francès (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona); and Mary S. Vázquez (Davidson College). The volume concludes with a complete bibliography by Tiffany L. Malloy of works by and about Tusquets.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This study explores the interaction of language, culture and identity in contemporary Catalonia and rejects the exclusion of Castilian as a language capable of expressing 'Catalan-ness'. This study, charting the construction of a Catalan identity from the nineteenth-century cultural renaissance until the present day, explores the interaction of language, culture and identity in contemporary Catalonia. Drawing on postcolonial and multicultural literary theories, it argues that Castilian- and Catalan-language narratives are expressions of the same culture. Through detailed analyses of texts by Terenci Moix, Francisco Candel, Ignasi Riera, Montserrat Roig, Juan Marsé, Ramon Pallicé, and Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, among others, the author demonstrates that such writers share similar preoccupations and points of view and also engage in a complex literary and cultural dialogue that cuts across the established linguistic divisions that characterise cultural politics in Catalonia. The Catalan literary establishment's exclusion of Castilian as a language capable of expressing 'Catalan-ness' ischallenged and the author proposes redefining traditional understandings of Catalan literature to take into account texts produced by all members of Catalan society. Stewart King is a lecturer in Hispanic Studies at Monash University, Australia.
