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.

Abstract

Fujiwara Teika is known as the premier poet and literary scholar of the early 13th century. It is not so widely known that he also tried his hand at fiction: Mumyozoshi (Untitled Leaves; ca. 1201) refers to “several works” by Teika and then names Matsura no miya monogatari (The Tale of Matsura; ca. 1190) as the only one that can be considered successful. The work is here translated in full, with annotation. Set in the pre-Nara period, The Tale of Matsura is the story of a young Japanese courtier, Ujitada, who is sent to China with an embassy and has a number of supernatural experiences while there. Affairs of the heart dominate The Tale of Matsura, as is standard for courtly tales. Several of its other features break the usual mold, however: its time and setting; the military episode that would seem to belong instead in a war tale; scenes depicting the sovereign’s daily audiences, in which formal court business is conducted; a substantial degree of specificity in referring to things Chinese; a heavy reliance on fantastic and supernatural elements; an obvious effort to avoid imitating The Tale of Genji as other late-Heian tales had done; and a most inventive ending. The discussion in the introduction briefly touches upon each of these features, and then focuses at some length on how characteristics associated with the poetic ideal of yoen inform the tale. Evidence relating to the date and authorship of the tale is explored in two appendixes.

Abstract

The aim of this book is to show that seemingly illogical double identity of the townsman, Sukeroku, and the samurai, Soga Goro, in the play Sukeroku is a surviving element of what was once a complex and coherent structure based on a traditional performance calendar. To show how the calendar function and what Sukeroku's double identity signifies, the book is divided into two parts. Part One studies the structure of Edo kabuki. The first chapter, which outlines that structure, is based for the most part on writings of the Tokugawa period. The second chapter then looks at the concepts of sekai, "tradition," and shuko, "innovation." Kabuki was the product of material that had become a familiar part of Japanese culture by repeated use and dramatization over long periods of time, starting before kabuki began, and material that was relatively new and was used to transform the older, set material. The double identity in Sukeroku came about as a result of this interplay between what was received by way of traditional and what was added by way of innovation. Part Two considers the significance of the double identity. The author concludes that Sukeroku's double identity gave Edo audiences a hero who was an idealization of the contemporary Tokugawa townsman and at the same time a transformation of a samurai god-hero of the past. The first chapter of Part Two traces the development of Sukeroku's Soga Goro/samurai identity, from its origins in the early dramatic forms of no, kowaka, and ko-joruri, to the representation of Soga Goro in kabuki by Ichikawa Danjuro I. The seconds then looks at the transformation of Soga Gorointo Sukeroku by discussing the origins of Sukeroku and its introductions to Edo kabuki by Ichikawa Danjuro I and his son, Danjuro II, since their work was the basis of all later developments.

Abstract

Reminiscent narratives on Eastern, Central Eastern and Southeastern Europe and their investigation from a comparative literary perspective are the core of the volume Trauma - Generations - Narrative. With recourse to trauma theories and the concept of postmemory, the authors ask what effect traumatic experiences have on subsequent generations in the mirror of literature. Traumatic experiences, family memories, and the consequences of wars and other human-made catastrophes are the focus of the book, along with narrative techniques. The abundance and diversity of literary texts as well as their broad reception attest to the current productivity of literature with a post-memorial orientation, whose function and dynamics are particularly explored by the considerations bundled here. / Nacherinnernde Narrative zum ost-, ostmittel- und südosteuropäischen Raum und ihre Untersuchung aus komparatistisch-literaturwissenschaftlicher Sicht sind der Kern des Bandes Trauma – Generationen – Erzählen. Mit Rückgriff auf Traumatheorien sowie das Konzept der Postmemory fragen die Autorinnen und Autoren nach dem Fortwirken traumatischer Erfahrungen in nachfolgenden Generationen im Spiegel der Literatur. Traumatisches Erleben, Familiengedächtnisse sowie die Folgen von Kriegen und anderen von Menschen gemachten Katastrophen stehen dabei neben erzählerischen Verfahren im Mittelpunkt. Die Fülle und Vielfalt literarischer Texte belegen ebenso wie deren breite Rezeption die aktuelle Produktivität von Literatur mit postmemorialer Ausrichtung, deren Funktion und Dynamik die hier gebündelten Überlegungen insbesondere nachgehen.

Abstract

Several of the most prolific and influential conspiracy theories have originated in Eastern Europe. The far reaching influence of conspiracy narratives can be observed in recent developments in Poland or with regard to the wars waged in Eastern Ukraine and in former Yugoslavia. This volume analyses the history behind this widespread phenomenon as well the role it has played in Eastern European cultures and literature both past and present.
