Nuevos enfoques sobre la novela corta barroca

Series:

Edited By Mechthild Albert, Ulrike Becker, Rafael Bonilla Cerezo and Angela Fabris

En este volumen colectivo se reúnen miembros de diferentes equipos internacionales de investigación sobre la novela corta y los saberes del Siglo de Oro. El hilo conductor de los catorce ensayos incluidos se cifra en la tentativa de analizar – a la luz tanto de los rasgos más típicos como de la variedad y versatilidad que lo caracterizan – uno de los géneros más genuinos del Seiscientos, deudor, por un lado, del acervo de los ‘novellieri’ (a partir de Boccaccio, Bandello y Straparola), y, por el otro, de las «Novelas ejemplares» de Cervantes, con vistas a futuros desarrollos metodológicos e interdisciplinares.

Del perro en Berganza. «El Coloquio de los perros» desde una perspectiva zoopoética

Extract



Abstract

Berganza and Cipión feature amongst the most famous characters in Cervantes’ works. However, critics have concentrated almost exclusively on their possible symbolic meaning and have neglected the fact that they are animals. Based on ideas from animal studies, this article seeks to fill this research gap. The first section concerns itself with the question to what extent the daily life of dogs in the Spanish Golden Age − as documented in scientific papers and other historical sources − could have left its marks on the text and how it could add a new layer of meaning to its interpretation. The second section concentrates on the text’s position with regard to the question of anthropological difference. It is striking how the boundaries between humans and animals are systematically erased and how philosophical positions are questioned.
