“um processo mais lato de degeneração moral entre a população romana e entre alguns dos seus mais notáveis imperadores”, refere James Harley (2006: 41), contrapondo que a aproximação destes elementos à tragédia não denunciam o esgotamento da forma dramática, mas antes a vão influenciar, determinando a sua evolução. Assim, argumenta que os espectáculos de sangue em voga na Roma Imperial incorporavam convenções estéticas herdadas da representação teatral, incluindo o uso de figurinos, música e até enredos ficcionais ( Ibidem : 42). Na comédia, para um público

drafted avant-garde works, such as  I, Sewage Inspector (1928), his main contribution to the Spanish avant-garde was undoubtedly the foundation of the biweekly La Gaceta Literaria in January 1927. The first issue, sponsored by Ortega with his article “On a Newspaper of Letters,” defined the publication as “Iberian, American and international” highlighting from the start what its founder would later call a peninsular “intellectual confederation,” 30 meaning the joining in one newspaper of literature in all the peninsular territories and languages.

authors on many occasions, as will be mentioned again in the subsequent subchapters. Soon Germans came to understand that aspect in German does exist but that it is expressed by syntactic means. Renicke’s (1961) paper entitled “Deutsche Aspektpaare” applies the Slavic concept of aspectual pairs to German, but rather than listing pairs of verbs, Renicke listed pairs of sentences.

O Company Of darkened Russia, watching long in vain, Now shall you see the cloud of Russia’s pain Go shrinking out across a summer sky. A wind in the world! And we have come Together, sea by sea; in all the lands Vision doth move at last, and Freedom stands With brightened wings, and smiles and beckons home! 12 ← 68 | 69 → Apart from that, neither Russia nor the Russians as such ever featured in his writings.

America, where the “frontier” was basically a westward movement, with the “frontier”, the space still unoccupied by the whites, receding from east to west, as the Europeans progressed towards the Pacific Ocean. 265 Moretti’s study of movement in both European and overseas literary traditions can integrate Jones’s observations, and can help us to understand better the reasons determining direction. In colonial history, explorations usually started from a commercial port or from coastal colonies and moved in a straight line towards the interior of the country. Whatever

communitas . 803 As Victor and Edith Turner mention: “there is undoubtedly an initiatory quality in pilgrimage. A pilgrim is an initiand, entering into a new, deeper level of existence than he has known in his accustomed milieu” (Victor and Edith Turner 8). In consideration of the Beats, Jack Kerouac and characters in his novels can be seen as liminal pilgrims wandering the holy sites of his beloved America who establish communitas with fellow pilgrims. In Kerouac’s travel novels, one sees how his journeys can be compared to pilgrimages. Many of the land marks that

and names, would fill an encyclopaedia, the myth of Eleanor would certainly require a whole volume. In the following chapter we will deal with the revival of Eleanor as a key figure in the literature of the age. We will ascertain her impact in Germany, France and England, before following her course to America – not the Hispanic America of Amado Nervo, for he too had an Eleanor, but the America of Poe and the intellectual circle that surrounded him. As we shall see, Poe’s romantic heroines are inheritors of the same divinity that continually reconfigures itself. It
