Abstract

This book explores literary culture in England between 1630 and 1700, focusing on connections between material, epistemic, and political conditions of literary writing and reading. In a number of case studies and close readings, it presents the seventeenth century as a period of change that saw a fundamental shift towards a new cultural configuration: neoclassicism. This shift affected a wide array of social practices and institutions, from poetry to politics and from epistemology to civility.

Abstract

From the perspective of Latin American Studies, this volume offers a critical contribution to the current debate on world literature. It is structured around three conceptual blocks: gatekeepers, as the dispositives and actors mediating the international circulation of literature translation, as an unavoidable but always problematic mechanism and local literatures, as modes of writing that remain intrinsically tied to their contexts.

Abstract

La historia de las relaciones culturales entre Perú y España desde la época del Virreinato hasta la actualidad demuestra que el mar que separa los dos continentes no es tan ancho ni tan ajeno. La huella del Siglo de Oro o del Quijote en autores andinos contemporáneos, la presencia de Lorca en la literatura popular peruana, los avatares de Mario Vargas Llosa en la Península desde los años cincuenta, y de autores posteriores como Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Alonso Cueto, Fernando Iwasaki, Jorge Eduardo Benavides, etc., los paralelismos e influencias mutuas entre los poetas y músicos de las generaciones del fin del siglo XX a ambos lados del Atlántico, son algunos de los indicadores de una complicidad que no ha dejado de crecer con el paso del tiempo.

Abstract

Medical Humanity and Inhumanity in the German-Speaking World is the first volume dedicated to exploring the interface of medicine, the human and the humane in the German-speaking lands. The volume tracks the designation and making through medicine of the human and inhuman, and the humane and inhumane, from the Middle Ages to the present day. Eight individual chapters undertake explorations into ways in which theories and practices of medicine in the German-speaking world have come to define the human, and highlight how such theories and practices have consolidated, or undermined, notions of humane behaviour. Cultural analysis is central to this investigation, foregrounding the reflection, refraction and indeed creation of these theories and practices in literature, life-writing and other discourses and media. Contributors bring to bear perspectives from literary studies, film studies, critical theory, cultural studies, history, and the history of medicine and psychiatry. Thus, this collection is historical in the most expansive sense, for it debates not only what historical accounts bring to our understanding of this topic. It encompasses too investigation of life-writing, documentary, and theory and literary works to bring to light elusive, paradoxical, underexplored – yet vital – issues in history and culture.

Abstract

The lecture volume plumbs a seductively diverse and infinitely confusing subject: love. From Tristan and Isolde to Don Juan, Cecilia Valdes, Emma Bovary, and the love fables of modern mass media, the relationship between love and life, and between literature and passion, is analyzed in this volume with scholarly dispassion.

Abstract

The main hypothesis of this work is drawn around the category of crime, considered from its place in social productivity, which allows interpretively rewriting some features of the organization of society and its contradictions in the literature.
