Bernard Vargaftig

Gestures toward the Sacred

Series:

Aaron Prevots

The French poet Bernard Vargaftig (1934–2012), first known in 1960s literary circles as a writer mentored by Aragon, published regularly and served on the editorial boards of Action poétique and Europe. His poetry foregrounds identity and alterity, eros and notions of self, an immediate present and an onrushing past. This book examines Vargaftig’s evolution and aims. It explores his postwar search for self-acceptance, ontological rootedness and shared forward paths. Using close readings of his poetry and prose, complemented by his comments in interviews, the book particularly considers his emphasis on the sacredness of words. His spiritual yearnings, as well as a need to heal due to lingering trauma from wartime hiding, are shown to underlie his focus on allusive imagery, recurring motifs and compact structures, where silence and sound interweave. Comparative analyses are used to show how his enthusiasm for the female Other attunes us to interpersonal bonds and to the outer world’s creative surge. The study of Vargaftig through the lens of gestures toward the sacred thus highlights poetry as a healing ritual, one that facilitates not only immersion in emotion and sensation, but also a continual process of renewal and self-discovery.

Pirandello Proto-Modernist

A new reading of «L’esclusa»

Bradford A. Masoni

Luigi Pirandello’s first novel L’esclusa, completed in its earliest form in 1893, straddles two literary worlds. On the one hand, it is clearly rooted in the late nineteenth-century realist mode, especially that of Italian verismo. On the other, Pirandello employs a style and an approach to narrative that anticipate both the theory of writing he would later lay out in his long essay L’umorismo [On Humour] (1908), and the kinds of experimental writing that one associates with the author’s later work and with early twentieth-century modernism in general. Examining the novel in light of its relationship to these two worlds not only gives readers insight into the trajectory of Pirandello’s work as he developed as a writer, but also marks it as an example of the broader shift towards modernism that was already beginning to be made manifest in the works of novelists across Europe.

This book provides a new critical evaluation of L’esclusa, linking it explicitly to the theoretical principles aligned with Pirandello’s later output and with early twentieth-century literary modernism in general. L’esclusa and Pirandello’s other early works of fiction have too long been overlooked, particularly by scholars working in English. The aim of this book is not only to connect L’esclusa to Pirandello’s later, better-known writing, and to literary modernism, but also to bring this forward-looking novel to the attention of readers in the English-speaking world.

Les mécanismes de la lecture du manuscrit médiéval

Series:

Krzysztof Kotuła

Le sujet du livre est le processus de la lecture du manuscrit médiéval enluminé. L’objectif principal est d’analyser, en détail, les fonctions possibles de l’illustration ainsi que les différentes formes de la relation que celle-ci entretient avec le texte. Au terme de cette analyse il sera possible de déterminer de quelle façon l’image peut influer sur la réception de l’œuvre littéraire par le lecteur. L’objet de recherche central est l’exemplaire du Roman de la Rose de Guillaume de Lorris et de Jean de Meun conservé à la Bibliothèque des Princes Czartoryski à Cracovie, sous la cote Czart. 2920, contenant de nombreuses miniatures originales qui en font un objet d’analyse particulièrement intéressant.

Los trabajos de investigación que se recogen en este volumen abarcan temáticas lingüísticas tan diversas como la sintaxis, la lexicología, la lexicografía, la dialectología, la traducción, la toponimia, la didáctica, el discurso público, etc., y lenguas tan heterogéneas como el español, el bereber, el mancañá y el árabe. Coinciden todos ellos en atender a los problemas que abordan con las metodologías lingüísticas  más recientes, que van desde la lingüística contrastiva hasta la lingüística de género, pasando por la semántica lingüística, la traductología, la sociolingüística, la onomástica, la historiografía, la lingüística del discurso o la fraseología.

Die Autorin geht der Frage nach, warum die allegorischen Fronleichnamsspiele des Siglo de Oro dezidiert auf ihre theatrale Umsetzung angewiesen sind. Durch die Adaption moderner Kategorien von Theatralität auf die «autos sacramentales» lässt sich der didaktische Hintergrund der Gegenreformation mit den performativen Elementen eines Theaterspiels in Verbindung bringen. Dabei eröffnet die Thematisierung der körperlichen Präsenz einen wirkungsästhetischen Zugang zu diesen inhaltlich wie formal komplexen Stücken.

Beyond Binaries

Sex, Sexualities and Gender in the Lusophone World

Series:

Edited by Paulo Pepe and Ana Raquel Fernandes

This volume sets out to investigate queer literature and cinema, exploring in particular the intersection of issues of gender and Lusophone culture. The essays collected here present individual case studies within a queer theoretical framework, examining the ways in which queer identities are constructed and addressed through different types of cultural production. More specifically, they consider Portuguese and Lusophone socio-cultural contexts and the representation of gender in popular culture, as well as the centrality of literature and cinema in the subversion of heteronormative social norms.

Impegno metonimico, impegno esplicito: poetiche della Neoavanguardia a confronto.

Elio Pagliarani, Edoardo Sanguineti, Adriano Spatola.

Series:

Emanuele La Rosa

Contro cosa si è rivolta la poetica del rifiuto formulata tra gli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta del Novecento dalla Neoavanguardia italiana? È poi davvero corretto parlare di una poetica? Quali sono le dimensioni dell’impegno all’interno del Gruppo 63? Cosa hanno a che fare alienazione dell’individuo e guerra atomica con la poesia novissima? Sulla base di un confronto incrociato tra le opere più significative di tre protagonisti di quella stagione letteraria (Elio Pagliarani, Edoardo Sanguineti ed Adriano Spatola) il presente lavoro, attraverso una mirata analisi semiotica, cerca di fornire delle risposte a tali quesiti.

Die Unabhängigkeitsbestrebungen Kataloniens von Spanien bilden ein wiederkehrendes, politisch brisantes Thema in ganz Europa. In diesem Zusammenhang untersucht diese Studie die Wurzeln regionaler Darstellungen in der Literatur der spanischen Aufklärung auf der diskursiven Ebene und zeigt die Herausbildung politisch-ökonomischer Interessen einzelner Provinzen im Kontext des spanischen Reformprojekts des 18. Jahrhunderts auf.

Edited by María Martínez Deyros and Carmen Morán Rodríguez

El microrrelato se ha configurado en las últimas décadas como una fuente inagotable de escritura. Tanto los autores como la crítica especializada han visto en la minificción el cauce perfecto para la expresión de un nuevo concepto de literatura. La hiperbrevedad, el fragmentarismo, la intertextualidad, el humor, la ironía y la ex-centricidad conforman los rasgos indiscutibles de este nuevo género, fiel reflejo de la mentalidad posmoderna. A pesar de los abundantes estudios realizados sobre la minificción, son muchos los interrogantes sin responder, ya que la renovación de formas plantea a cada paso nuevos retos a la crítica. Además, la hiperbrevedad como estética y clave de lectura nos invitan a leer de otro modo, bajo una nueva luz, obras anteriores a la conformación del microrrelato como género. En el presente volumen llevamos a cabo una toma de pulso a las formas hiperbreves de la ficción en un sentido amplio, y tratamos de dar respuesta a algunas de estas cuestiones desde una triple perspectiva temporal, analizando el desarrollo de determinados aspectos de la ficción mini tanto en Hispanoamérica como en España.
