  • Identity and Ideologyby Julie Chandler Hayes

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1991; US$ 158.00

    The bourgeois drama of "serious genre" was one of the major innovative literary forms of the French Enlightenment, but it has been largely excluded from the canon today. In a study drawing on contemporary and 18th-century literary theory and philosophy, social history and history of the theatre, Hayes presents a reading of the dramas of Diderot... more...

  • Keats, Poe, and the Shaping of Cortazar's Mythopoesisby Ana Hernandez Del Castillo

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1981; US$ 158.00

    The Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar was clearly influenced by his predecessors John Keats and Edgar Allan Poe. However, to what extent?

  • Lorca, una escritura en tranceby Candelas Newton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1992; US$ 165.00

    Lorca's poetry is founded upon a complex symbolical system of recurring motifs. This book analyses a number of those motifs as poetic signs through a contextual reading of Libro de poemas (1921) and Diván del Tamarit (1940) as the initial and final stages of Lorca's career. The sexual and religious crisis voiced in Libro de poemas achieves... more...

  • Cuba’s Wild Eastby Peter Hulme

    Liverpool University Press 2011; US$ 145.00

    This book recounts a literary history of modern Cuba. It looks aslant at a Cuban national literature that has sometimes been indistinguishable from a history of Havana. Given the insurgent and revolutionary history of that eastern region, it recounts stories of rebellion, heroism and sacrifice. Intimately related to places and sites which now belong... more...

  • Mirages de la farceby Thierry Boucquey

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1991; US$ 158.00

    Establishing the notion of reasonable foolishness and foolish reason as a generic principle of the old French farce, Boucquey's study examines the interdependencies among four key mimetic phenomena: the demented universe of the Feast of Fools festival, the genre of the farce, Bruegel's representation of the world, and the euphoric comedies of triumphant... 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...

  • Narrating Indigenous Michaela Moura-Koçoglu

    Editions Rodopi 2011; US$ 85.80

    The Maori of New Zealand, a nation that quietly prides itself on its pioneering egalitarianism, have had to assert their indigenous rights against the demographic, institutional, and cultural dominance of Pakeha and other immigrant minorities – European, Asian, and Polynesian – in a postcolonial society characterized by neocolonial structures... more...
