Loving’s the Strange Thing

Jungian Individuation in the Fairy Tales of Carmen Martín Gaite

Series:

Anne-Marie Storrs

This groundbreaking volume argues that Carmen Martín Gaite and Carl Jung form an ideal combination. All the main features of the Jungian individuation process are present in the Spanish writer’s fairy tales: dreams, shadow figures, wise men and women, the Self, anima and animus. Martín Gaite has been described by the critic Salustiano Martín as trying to offer human beings a different way. In this accessible new study, Anne-Marie Storrs claims that this way is found through the process of individuation – the psychological development of a unique individual – and that aspects of the process are imaginatively depicted in the three shorter fairy tales, El castillo de las tres murallas, El pastel del diablo and Caperucita en Manhattan, and in the novel so closely linked with Hans Christian Andersen’s tale, La reina de las nieves.

Drawing on the work of Jungian writers to clarify and illuminate its argument, this book takes an entirely new perspective on Martín Gaite’s work and, in doing so, challenges the prejudice and suspicion that too many in the humanities and beyond continue to experience when they come face to face with Jung.

French Feminisms 1975 and After

New Readings, New Texts

Series:

Margaret Atack, Alison S. Fell, Diana Holmes and Imogen Long

This volume explores contemporary French women’s writing through the prism of one of the defining moments of modern feminism: the writings of the 1970s that came to be known as «French feminism». With their exhilarating renewal of the rules of fiction, and a sophisticated theoretical approach to gender, representation and textuality, Hélène Cixous and others became internationally recognised for their work, at a time when the women’s movement was also a driving force for social change. Taking its cue from Les Femmes s’entêtent, a multi-authored analysis of the situation of women and a celebration of women’s creativity, this collection offers new readings of Monique Wittig, Emma Santos and Hélène Cixous, followed by essays on Nina Bouraoui, Michèle Perrein and Ying Chen, Marguerite Duras and Mireille Best, and Valentine Goby. A contextualising introduction establishes the theoretical and cultural framework of the volume with a critical re-evaluation of this key moment in the history of feminist thought and women’s writing, pursuing its various legacies and examining the ways theoretical and empirical developments in queer studies, postcolonial studies and postmodernist philosophies have extended, inflected and challenged feminist work.

Postcolonial Archipelagos

Essays on Hispanic Caribbean and Lusophone African Fiction

Series:

Kristian Van Haesendonck

Writers from different postcolonial regions are usually classified according to their different nationalities or linguistic areas, and have rarely been brought together in one volume. Moving in a new direction, Postcolonial Archipelagos crosses not only geographical but also linguistic boundaries, by focusing on two contexts which seemingly have little or nothing in common with one another: the Hispanic Caribbean, and Lusophone Africa. Kristian Van Haesendonck thus opens new ground, in two ways: first, by making connections between contemporary Caribbean and African writers, moving beyond the topos of slavery and negritude in order to analyse the (im)possibility of conviviality in postcolonial cultures; and secondly, by exploring new ways of approaching these literatures as postcolonial archipelagic configurations with historical links to their respective metropoles, yet also as elements of what Glissant and Hannerz have respectively called "Tout-Monde" and a "world in creolization". Although the focus is on writers from Lusophone Africa (Mia Couto, José Luis Mendonça and Guilherme Mendes da Silva) and the Hispanic Caribbean (Junot Díaz, Eduardo Lalo, Marta Aponte, James Stevens-Arce and Edgardo Rodríguez Juliá), connections are made with and within the broader global context of intensified globalization.

«El mundo sigue» de Fernando Fernán-Gómez

Redescubrimiento de un clásico

Series:

Ralf Junkerjürgen and Cristina Alonso-Villa

La vuelta de «El mundo sigue» a la gran pantalla en 2015 representó un verdadero acontecimiento cinematográfico que suscitó un gran interés por parte de la crítica y del público. La película, truncada en su origen y relegada a objeto de estudio para especialistas, recuperó así el lugar que le correspondía en la historia del cine español. El presente volumen recoge entrevistas con Gemma Cuervo y Rosa Salgado, así como análisis realizados desde perspectivas diferentes de la obra en cuestión y su autor. Aparte de esto, se publica por primera vez el guion de rodaje, desconocido hasta la fecha, con los añadidos del director.

Il movimento del dono nella poesia di Eugenio Montale

Rifiutare – ricevere – ricambiare

Series:

Paulina Malicka

Lo studio interpreta la poesia di Montale dalla prospettiva del dono come oggetto di interesse di discipline antropologiche e filosofiche. L’analisi inizia dalla concezione triadica del dare-ricevere-ricambiare di Mauss in contrapposizione alla teoria derridiana che nega la possibilità del dono. Si tratta di un ampio sguardo su tutta la produzione poetica dell’autore per ricostruirne la nascita e lo sviluppo, nonché per rendere la specificità del suo destino. Il lavoro strutturato sull’esempio del trittico maussiano ne capovolge i contenuti e propone il rifiuto quale elemento fondante dell’intera analisi del dono. In ultima istanza, il dono appare come una categoria interpretativa della poesia che offre un’inesauribilità semantica al di là di ogni economia e di ogni costrizione sociale.

Werewere Liking – Ritual und Schreiben

A Critical Debate in Africa and Latin America

Series:

Anne-Catherine Luther

Die Monographie widmet sich der Analyse der diskursiven und narrativen Isotopien in den ersten fünf Romanen Werewere Likings unter Nutzung semiformal beschriebener Vorgehensweisen. Identitäre Kategorien der Gender Studies verlieren zugunsten einer transdisziplinären, ganzheitlichen Sicht auf das fiktionale postkoloniale Subjekt an Bedeutung. Die Autorin arbeitet neben den ritualisierten Entwicklungsphasen der Hauptfiguren – Denunziation, Perspektiventwicklung und Synthese – fünf Muster heraus: die duale, archetypische, prophezeite, liminale und transgenerationale Menschwerdung. Dieses Paradigma erlaubt die Darstellung und den Vergleich der komplexen Figurenkonstrukte in ihrer individuellen und kollektiven transgenerationalen Entwicklung und der narrativen Strategien in den Romanen.

Nomaden im modernen europäischen Kino

Uta Felten

Die Studie betrachtet die Figur des Nomadischen und ihre Verwendung im europäischen Film anhand ausgewählter Filme von Wenders, Antonioni und Rohmer. Zielsetzung ist die Beschreibung und Analyse des Nomadismus als epistemologische und urbane Denkfigur. Als interdisziplinäre Untersuchung ist dieses Buch zugleich Baustein einer noch ausstehenden transnationalen Filmgeschichtsschreibung, in dessen Mittelpunkt die epistemologischen und poetologischen Bezüge zwischen den Klassikern des europäischen Autorenkinos stehen.

L’ouvrage fait converger des éclairages singuliers sur le dandy, paradigme de l’individualisme moderne et de la construction de la masculinité. Le volume croise des approches sociologiques, politiques, littéraires et artistiques au sens large. Il problématise les traits du dandy historique : variations genrées, temporelles ou locales ; puis la perspective se concentre sur le dandy moderne dans différents média ou figures postcoloniales ; l’approche se reconfigure dans le but de cerner une masculinité hyperbolique et paradoxalement efféminée, lecture « queer » ou filtrée par le prisme d’un autre mythe de la masculinité, Don Juan. Enfin, une méditation sur David Bowie, prototype d’un dandysme toujours renaissant, clôt le volume en l’ouvrant à la dimension spirituelle du dandysme.

Die Autorin untersucht die Bedeutung des Ersten Spanisch-Marokkanischen Kriegs (1859–1860) im katalanischen Identitätsdiskurs des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sie analysiert, wie der Krieg die Herausbildung einer eigenständigen, katalanischen kulturnationalen Identität förderte. Die Studie weist auf der Grundlage bisher weitgehend unerschlossener Texte nach, dass die katalanischen Schriftsteller jener Zeit gezielt versuchten, das Massenereignis des Kriegs zu nutzen, um katalanische nationale Mythen und Symbole in der Bevölkerung zu verbreiten und dadurch zur Konstruktion einer katalanischen nationalen Identität beizutragen. Der politische Katalanismus des späten 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts greift auf diese Identität zurück.
