Tilting Cervantes : Baroque reflections on postmodern culture by Bruce R Burningham( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tilting Cervantes examines several contemporary texts -- Fight Club, Brazil, The Matrix, and The Moor's Last Sigh, among others -- by reflecting them against a cluster of early modern Spanish and Latin American literary works, principally Don Quixote. Through a deliberate juxtaposition of these cross-cultural and cross-epochal texts, this book explores the notion that each of these varied cultural products can be read -in a very Borgesian manner- as precursors to each other, especially for contemporary readers who may not come to them in their "proper" chronological order. At the same time, and within this larger juxtaposition, this book examines the interrelated baroque and postmodern preoccupation with mirrors and self-reflexivity, and thus argues that many postmodern writers and performers do not so much break new ground as simply rediscover terrain already explored by such baroque literary figures as Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Francisco de Quevedo, and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. --From publisher's description

Constructing the Artistic Subject in Golden Age Spain by Carmen B Ripolles( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dissertation, I examine the development of artistic identity in Golden Age Spain by elucidating the cultural, social, and economic contexts which framed notions of the artist during this period. More particularly, I focus on the notion of artistic nobility as it relates to contemporary evolving aristocratic ideals. Seventeenth-century Spain was a period marked by the continuous reconfiguration of the traditional model of nobility. Through a close analysis of theoretical artistic discourses, popular portrayals of the artist, and actual artistic practice, I offer a critical re-assessment of the artistic assimilation of aristocratic values. I offer a new approach to studies of Spanish art by regarding artistic identity as an unstable and fluctuating category that is in constant dialogue with broader cultural, social, and economic frameworks, and the discourse of artistic nobility as an arena in which alternative forms of artistic identity could paradoxically be advanced. This entails detailed analyses of some of the issues surrounding noble identity in the Golden Age and how these permeated notions of the artist during this period. I also consider how, conversely, the artist became a particularly visible site where constantly changing aristocratic ideals could be embodied
