  • Dream Nationby María Acosta Cruz

    Rutgers University Press 2014; US$ 25.95

    In this provocative new book, Maria Acosta Cruz investigates why the rhetoric of independence is so pivotal to Puerto Rican culture, despite the fact that the island?s voters have consistently rejected calls for national sovereignty.

  • The Politics of Race in Panamaby Sonja Stephenson Watson

    University Press of Florida 2014; US$ 74.95

    Sonja Watson examines the writing of black Panamanian authors to reveal how race is defined, contested, and inscribed in Panama.

  • Benito Perez Galdos and the Creative Processby Walter T. Pattison

    University of Minnesota Press 1954; US$ 67.50

    Most critics would rank Benito Perez Galdos second only to Cervantes among the great novelists of Spain. However, in spite of the esteem in which he is generally held, Galdos has been the subject of relatively few scholarly studies. Professor Pattison, by more...

  • Verisimilitude: Realismus in den Spielfilmen Jim Jarmuschsby Simone Brandt

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 26.84

    Haben Independent- bzw. Autorenfilme ein höheres Potential eine wie auch immer geartete Wirklichkeit abzubilden als der klassische Hollywoodfilm? Was ist überhaupt Realismus im Spielfilm? Die Ähnlichkeit zur Realität kann es nicht sein, denn der Spielfilm zeigt im Gegensatz zum Dokumentarfilm in der Regel Erfundenes, Fiktives. Auch kennt der Zuschauer... more...

  • Modelos dialógicos en la narrativa de Benito Pérez Galdósby Alicia G. Andreu

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1989; US$ 158.00

    Benito Perez Galdos sought a new narrative structure which would revitalize the literary models prevalent in 19th-century Spain. He found such a structure in the creation of a dialogue between normally incompatible texts — between old and new, national and foreign, high culture and low. From the confrontation of these incongruous texts a narrative... more...

  • Reading 'La Regenta'by Stephanie A. Sieburth

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1990; US$ 158.00

    Criticism of La Regenta has until recently focused on the text's plot as an extraordinarily coherent and convincing fictional world. Stephanie A. Sieburth demonstrates that the devices which produce order in the text are counterbalanced by an equally strong tendency toward entropy of meaning. The narrator is shown to be duplicitous and unreliable in... more...

  • Reason and the Passions in the 'Comedias' of Calderónby David Jonathan Hildner

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1982; US$ 158.00
