Ello es evidente cuando son incluidas fichas de Siestas con viento sur y El loco. The Reichenberger series of critical editions of Spanish Golden Age plays has recently added two new titles, both offering plays that have received little critical attention in the past. The first section deals with Ana Caro, analyzing her place among the writers of her time and presenting the information known about her life. There follow a history of the play, and an analysis of its plot and the roles of the characters, including two semiotic schemata.
This section also compares the play with other Golden Age dramas and situates it in the context of the theater of its day. She applies this thesis to the play in question, showing how its action takes place in contemporary Spain, although that of the fable is supposedly situated in a mythic time and place. Furthermore, the course of events takes the hero on a path that alternates between an open and dangerous exterior space and a closed and amorous interior one, once again demonstrating the primacy of action over the unities of time and space.
The last sections of the introduction comprise a study of the versification of the text illustrating the relationship between verse form and dramatic material, as well as an explanation of the criteria used in preparing the edition. A bibliography lists the editions of the works attributed to Caro, studies and references relating to her work, and a select general bibliography of the comedia. The text itself is well presented, carefully footnoted, and followed by a listing of variants. The format is attractive and easy to read, particularly because the spelling has been modernized.
This volume is impressive in the amount of documentation that accompanies both the introductory material and the text. It is gratifying to see that this heretofore unjustly ignored work by an outstanding woman playwright of the Golden Age is receiving the critical attention that it so well deserves. The next section is devoted to a study of the play itself. Also included here is a bibliography of this particular play. These two plays are presented in handsome volumes and provide easy access to texts that previously were difficult to find in scholarly editions.
They are excellent contributions to the growing number of well edited Golden Age comedias. Trinity University. In her excellent introduction, Susan Kirkpatrick says that Rosa Chacel presents, a la James Joyce, a portrait of artists as young women. In the formation of one of the creative young girls, Chacel combines three representations of Ariadne, Elena's mother, the opera written by Ariadne's father, and a statue of that mythic figure.
In fact, Chacel believes that all artistic impulse originates in the erotic xi. Later, Kirkpatrick shows that, while women's activity e. On a few occasions, the translation changes the meaning considerably. The reader infers incorrectly that Isabel expected to work for Elena's grandmother: instead, Isabel was told to behave properly. On at least one occasion 67 , this confuses the reader: Is Juan Morano the scribe of the Ministry of Public Education or the person walking to meet that ministry employee?
Manuel blames only his wife or rather her death for his own spiritual demise. Such errors are rare, however.
The translator often adds welcome clarifications, identifying authors alluded to: for example, Quevedo and Maeterlinck. Every adaptation of a literary text offers both a reading of the text and a dialectics of sorts between the original context and the time and place of the rewriting.
When the adapter chooses a new medium of expression, the distance from the original and the intervention of a second hand become even more apparent. In this study, Barbara P. Esquival-Heinemann looks at opera libretti based on Don Quixote and written between and Her work shows the episodes and the modes that the librettists chose to emphasize, along with the interplay of imitation and invention that marks the creative process. Esquival-Heinemann opens with a brief consideration of opera as genre and then surveys the operatic adaptations of Don Quixote in Italy, Germany and Austria, France, England, and the Hispanic world.
Three appendices provide a chronology of the Don Quixote operas, a chart of frequency in the use of specific episodes, and illustrations and pages from selected texts. German librettists produce the Singspiel, considered to be a counterpart of the opera buffa.
Editions of All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark
Esquival-Heinemann notes that in the eighteenth century German critics saw Don Quixote as satire, while viewing Don Quixote himself in a somewhat more personal and serious vein. The symbolic view of the protagonist led to the transformation wrought by nineteenth-century Romanticism, as chronicled by Anthony Close and others.
Opera composition in Germany reflects the movement toward a tragic vision of Don Quixote, but librettists also find room for comic treatment of the text. In contrast to the German libretti, interpretations of Don Quixote in France remain much the same in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, according to Esquival-Heinemann.
French compositions during this period, which on occasion combine opera and ballet, tend to focus on the grotesque and the ridiculous qualities of the novel. An exception -significant for its place in the contemporary repertoire- is Massenet's Don Quichotte, which Esquival-Heinemann believes to be based on a poem by Henri Cain and a play by Jacques Le Lorrain the librettist rather than on Cervantes's novel. This opera attributes to Don Quixote the noble character that other French versions forsake in favor of humor. In England, as well, librettists generally emphasize the comic aspects of Don Quixote , and, fittingly, the role of Sancho Panza.
Esquival sees in the operatic productions of the four centuries a mirror of the stages elaborated by Edwin B. Knowles: surface farce, serious satire, exploration of the spiritual implications of the text, and a balance of comic and serious elements, respectively. As in the case of other European countries, Don Quixote serves to inspire a new form of opera, namely, the ballad opera.
Ironically, but understandably, Spain has produced few operatic versions of Don Quixote, due most likely to the reverence in which Cervantes's masterpiece is held in the Hispanic world. This particular sally should be of interest to Quixote scholars, notably with regard to generic diversity and to writing as rewriting. Questions of tone and frequency -the most popular episodes are Camacho's wedding, Sancho's governorship, and the stay at the ducal palace- affect not only the domain of opera but reception of the novel in comprehensive terms.
One could argue a bit about balance, about missed opportunities to deal with theories of genre, or about the exclusion of the United States and its own unique form, the musical comedy, which gave us perhaps the most commercially successful of all adaptations of the Quixote. Nonetheless, it is important to recognize the tremendous amount of research that went into this project and the usefulness of the data collected. The commentary is clearly written, well organized, and enjoyable to read. Riley's contention that Don Quixote as icon often supersedes Don Quixote as literary figure helps to explain the multiple variations on quixotic themes that enrich and expand upon Cervantes's novel.
Edward H. Hildner's new book, but it is also sensual, imaginative, and sometimes self-contradictory. In this informative, well-written study,  Hildner analyzes the most salient characteristics of Leonine writing -among them, the cleric's use of semifigurative language, his philological precision, his admission of multiple meanings, his recourse to logic and the senses. Hildner examines Leonine concepts of truth and fiction, poetic and logical language, and shows that, although Fray Luis believed that doctrine should be transmitted through creative forms and beautiful words, he set limits to the poetic function.
Fray Luis distrusted the purely aesthetic, holding that God and the divine were the only proper subjects for imaginative writing. A significant part of the study is devoted to De los nombres de Cristo , which, in Hildner's view, illustrates some of the contradictions inherent in Fray Luis' thought. For Fray Luis writing was a moral activity. Heavily influenced by Neo-Platonism, he conceived of works such as Nombres as part of his search for truth.
Yet, De los nombres de Cristo does not constitute an authentic probe because there is no real dialogue. Fray Luis maintains a monolithic view; all of the nombres are different ways of saying the same thing. Hildner believes that Fray Luis was afraid of genuine diversity of opinion because he thought it would lead to a loss of unity in the Church.
Hildner points out that Fray Luis often sacrifices authenticity to unity in his writing, so that his descriptions of human society -including married life, government, etc. The descriptive elements in his writing are not mere ornaments, but means by which the passage comes alive, thereby conveying truth to the reader. Hildner believes that in spite of the apparent remoteness of Fray Luis' subject matter, the sixteenth-century cleric speaks to the modern reader. These notions, Hildner notes, were self-evident to Fray Luis.
David Hildner makes use of an impressive number of classical, Christian, and Renaissance sources to elucidate Fray Luis' thought. He shows that in terms of his aesthetics and Weltgeist , Fray Luis was both a man of his times and a remarkable individualist. Hildner explodes some of the myths about Fray Luis -often depicted as the austere formalist in comparison with San Juan, the exuberant sensualist- by exploring the dramatic and erotic elements of some of his writing.
However, the most notable feature of this source book is its use of feminist criticism to study the authors in question. Each study is comprised of four sections: biography, major themes, survey of criticism and bibliography, and I would like to concentrate momentarily on the last of these.
The bibliographies are thorough, painstaking, and in some cases, dazzling: they include original, subsequent and modern editions of all of the writers' works arranged according to genre; translations from Spanish to other major European languages, as well as translations from the minority languages to Castilian; books, articles and conference papers on the writer herself, specific works or related questions; and other diverse material -memoirs, letters, interviews and films- all of which is fascinating and useful.
Although all of the studies are undertaken from a feminist perspective, the versatility of these fifty specialists ensures a wide variety of approaches -linguistic, stylistic, structuralist, materialist, psychoanalytical, etc. The volume ends with a selected bibliography, which contains, surprisingly, the most complete listing of studies of peninsular women writers to date, and two appendixes: a chronology of authors by date of birth, and a comprehensive list of their works available in English translation.
In conclusion, Spanish Women Writers offers the monolingual reader in English, the teacher and student of peninsular letters, the specialist in women writers, the feminist literary critic, and the general reader an indispensable research guide. Feminist scholars, in particular, are greatly in debt to Levine, Marson and Waldman, and to the contributors to their source book. Spanish Women Writers constitutes a watershed in peninsular studies.
Within a short time, feminist literary historians will characterize the state of the held as before or after its publication. Henceforth I will be obliged to respond: you now have a choice between three works, depending on your specific interests -you can begin with his narration of either human life in the abstract, or his own particular life, or the personal dimension of human life.
This last work, under review, is situated midway between the abstract and the concrete, grounded in the abstract and itself the ground of the concrete. Thus, not everything in the world is, strictly speaking, personal. Furthermore, not everything about a human is, strictly speaking, personal. A human is constituted by the physical, the psychic and the personal. If the name of this orientation is not familiar, it is because very few philosophers refer to their positions as such.
Visor de obras.
On occasions such thinkers as Jacques Maritain, the neo-Thomist inspired by Bergson, called himself a personalist, but -at least in the United States- only a few philosophers academically connected with Boston University and the University of Southern California consistently applied the designation to themselves. What all personalists have in common is an emphasis on the person as what is distinctively human, and the conviction that the person is the highest form of reality.
Thirteen chapters form the book, commencing with the context of the study as seen in the first two chapters. They are related disjunctively, i. Together they constitute humanity. Because I found no explicit distinction between the individual and the person in Ortega, I supplemented his treatment with Maritain's distinction, as found in The Person and the Common Good. Taking into consideration Ortega and Maritain's fundamental differences in metaphysics, I was able to draw parallels between their respective critiques of political systems in the twentieth century that have tried to dehumanize by depersonalizing.
Because of this reduction of the desire between the sexes to sexual desire we are at the lowest level in centuries in understanding love. Tanner traces the history of the idea of the Roman emperor and its manifestation in imagery. The image, she believes, developed seamlessly from its origins in antiquity through the early Christian period, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Her study culminates with the Hapsburgs' use of the image in the sixteenth century. The myth was changed and adapted to concur with major historic events and the location of the imperial seat. It originated in antiquity with the vision of Rome's divine destiny; in the early Christian period it synthesized gentile and Jewish divine history and was consolidated by the Hapsburgs in the sixteenth century. Several elements -chronicles, visual imagery, mythical genealogy, among others- helped to form the image.
Vergil accommodated the Trojan myth to Roman history producing the vision of Rome's divine destiny. During the Byzantine period the myth was christianized by amalgamating Judeo-Christian topoi with their pagan parallels. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance epic narrative and mythic genealogy advanced the image. Mythical genealogy, providing a fictive ancestry for the emperor, was the most important element in the formation of the image. Biblical figures had already been interpolated during the early Christian period.
The genealogical pretensions of the emperors were advocated in monuments and in pictorial and literary works having biblical, historical and mythological subjects. Prophecy, unlike genealogy, focused on the eschatological to designate the Holy Roman emperor as the last descendant of Aeneas. In the sixteenth century, the Spanish monarch had become the last world emperor and Spain the last world monarchy, ideas put forth by the philosopher Tommaso Campanella who took into account Spain's role in the discovery of the new world, the expansion of its domains and the signs of the political and religious union of humankind.
The concluding chapters of Tanner's book dealing with the Hapsburgs in Spain should be of special interest to hispanists who can apply the material to their own research. Among the topics discussed in the context of Hapsburg rule are the mystical and dynastic significance of the Order of the Golden Fleece, the title to Jerusalem, Columbus's discovery of the Americas, and the monarch's solar identity.
In Hapsburg mythology the Escorial is viewed as Solomon's Temple, the heavenly Jerusalem and the fulfillment of Rome's imperial legacy. Philip II supported the arts to spread the message of Hapsburg piety which was based on devotion to the Eucharist and the Holy Cross. By casting the light of religion on the unknown half of the globe Philip was seen as Christ-Apollo. Philip identified the Eucharist with the sun to the extent that within Hapsburg realms the Eucharist was displayed in a monstrance having the form of a radiating sun.
By identifying himself with Apollo, the sun, and then the sun with the Eucharist, Philip drew to himself as emperor the adulation given the Eucharist. Tanner's research is impressive. In contrast to previous studies, Tanner concentrates on the mythical bias and the political motivations of the Renaissance epic narratives. In her treatment of mythic genealogy her special contribution to scholarship  goes beyond local issues.
The book's notes, select bibliography and copious illustrations add to the scholarly value of the text. Hispanists, in particular those in Golden Age studies, certainly have much to contribute. To succeed, such a book could only be the result of many years of research, thought, and love of its subject, which is the case here. Limiting his topic to the years plus Sor Juana , Terry divides the book into nine chapters.
The first sets the historical context for the poetry, tracing the Castilian, Italian and classical traditions, and is followed by a discussion of the poetics of the period. Sor Juana retains her place in the peninsular canon as the last of the period's major figures in Terry's treatment, which draws heavily on Octavio Paz's work. The poets and poems discussed here are, for the most part, the same ones found in Terry's Anthology of Spanish Poetry Part II , where they appeared with little commentary.
Women poets other than Sor Juana except for brief mention of Santa Teresa are notably absent in this treatment, which otherwise admirably attempts to bring the discipline up to date. There is also a welcome chapter on epic poetry, highly valued by the poets of the period but relatively neglected now.
More than readable, the text is interesting, with good illustrations of Terry's analysis and translated quotations. The thorough notes, index and selected bibliography will be appreciated by the serious student. For what it sets out to do, this will be a useful text for years to come. In connection with the Symposium a musical festival was held in which popular decimista groups performed. The introductory remarks of the Actas promise a forthcoming recording of the musical performances.
The volume is divided into three principal sections. The third section includes fourteen papers read during the meeting.

In a brief overview of our present knowledge of Hispanic oral poetry, Armistead notes that Hispanic popular poetry is the product of two legacies -Islamic and Romanic. Armistead's remarks also point to another topic treated by other speakers at the symposium -the link between the oral poetry of the Canaries and the Americas.
He gives a brief, country-by-country overview of orally-composed poetry in the Americas, emphasizing its varied, but also universally enduring legacy. He also includes an extensive bibliography. Judging from the essays included in this volume, the Symposium achieved its goal of studying this mode of traditional poetry from a transcultural perspective. Willem, are a useful addition to the ever-growing corpus of Galdosian scholarship.
They cover nearly every facet of the field, utilizing diverse critical methologies, with authors representative of various generations of Galdosistas. As is to be expected in so large a collection of studies, quality and level of interest vary considerably. Below is an account of some of the most significant essays. Stephanie Sieburth's study of La desheredada examines the novel from a sociological perspective, demonstrating how the working class through Mariano and the petty bourgeois class through Isidora come to threaten the status quo of the Madrid of the s and s.
She also argues that Miquis, usually taken by critics to be a benevolent figure, has a dark side: his attempts to cure the spiritual ailment of non-conformity James Whiston's essay on Lo prohibido illustrates the importance of the reader's perspective in this novel with a notoriously unreliable narrator. The synecdoche of the dismembered body applies to novelistic characters and to the nation as a whole in the period covered in the novel Geoffrey Ribbans's analysis of Fortunata y Jacinta is a carefully reasoned study of narrative point of view.
Harriet S. Turner's study of Fortunata y Jacinta provides some convincing definitions of the Realism of this novel. Networks of image and motif surround novelistic elements with a metonymic force, leading to dialectical signifiers Tropes are grounded in physical and chemical processes, nature or the economic phenomena of the times Teresa M.

Wright focuses on bodily metaphors and the symbolism of dismemberment, malfunctioning, and disarticulation Nicholas G. Round's study of Misericordia offers some original ideas regarding the relation of this final work of the Contemporary Novels series to both Realism and Spiritualism. His final conclusion is, however, questionable. Diane F. Linda M. Eamonn Rodgers examines the writer's political thought as expressed in essays and newspapers articles in the three principal periods of his life The constants of his thought were his disappointment with the politics of the Restoration and his rejection of caciquismo A weakness of this approach is that it only considers the political thought expressed in the writer's newspaper articles , ignoring the ideas present in his fictional works.
Lisa P. Galdosistas of varied interests will find many critical insights in this commemorative collection. Drawing numerous parallels between Argentina and Nazi Germany, Bouvard spotlights the prevalent antisemitism in Argentina. The atmosphere of terror and fear in Argentina recalls the Nazi policy of Night and Fog -people disappear without a trace, there is an absence of law and due process.
In spite of eyewitness accounts of abductions, the government denies all knowledge of political disappearances. Opposing this maelstrom of madness is a group of poor, uneducated women, searching for their missing children. At first apolitical and unsophisticated, they learn to take matters into their own hands. Bravely, they stage weekly marches in the symbolic Plaza de Mayo, locus of government and the site of proclaimed Argentine independence from Spain.
Advocating human rights and justice, these Mothers seize political power for themselves and all Argentines, demanding the release of all disappeared, punishment for the guilty parties, and the elimination of military control.
