Spanish American poetry after 1950 : beyond the vanguard by Donald Leslie Shaw( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing a basis for understanding the main lines of development of poetry in Spanish America after Vanguardism, this volume begins with an overview of the situation at the mid-century: the later work of Neruda and Borges, the emergence of Paz. Consideration is then given to the decisive impact of Parra and the rise of colloquial poetry, politico-social poetry [Dalton, Cardenal] and representative figures such as Orozco, Pacheco and Cisneros. The aim is to establish a few paths through the largely unmapped jungle of Spanish American poetry in the time period. The author emphasises the persistence of a generally negative view of the human condition and the poets' exploration of different ways of responding to it. These vary from outright scepticism to the ideological, the religious or those derived from some degree of confidence in the creative imagination as cognitive. At the same time there is analysis of the evolving outlook on poetry of the writers in question, both in regard to its possible social role and in regard to diction.

23 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Don Alvaro, or The Force of Fate by Angel de Saavedra, Duke of Rivas (1791-1865), premiered in 1835 in Madrid and changed the Spanish state forever after. It was the benchmark Romantic play of early nineteenth-century Spain. The play tells of the torrid love of the mysterious Don Alvaro and the lovely Dona Leonor, and how fate intervenes to bring about the extermination of Leonor's family at the hands of the man who loves her to distraction. In this English edition, Robert Fedorchek presents a readable translation faithful to the tone and spirit of the original. Joyce Tolliver enhances the book with a rich introduction highlighting the work's lasting significance."--Jacket

Le récit de la vie d'une femme, Agata Cruz, qui se consume sans trop savoir pour qui et pourquoi. Cet être désemparé aspire à un tout dont elle ignore absolument ce qu'il peut bien être et communique son angoisse et ses tourments avec les accents d'un mysticisme qui lui est totalement étranger et dont elle ne peut espérer aucun secours. Une parabole de toute existence humaine

Historia de la literatura española literatura actual by A. D Deyermond( Book )

El presente volumen cierra la edición revisada de la "Historia de la literatura española" dirigida por R. O. Jones e integrada, hasta ahora, por seis tomos. El enorme desarrollo de la literatura española posterior a la guerra civil, el creciente interés que despierta en los estudiantes y en el público culto, el variado panorama de las letras de este período exigían la incorporación de un nuevo volumen que hiciera llegar esta "Historia" hasta nuestros mismos días. Se puede afirmar sin presunción que el profesor Santos Sanz Villanueva ha conseguido una obra única -no existe otra semejante en ambición y densidad- que, a partir de ahora, será un libro de consulta y de estudio imprescindible para todos los interesados. Con una gran claridad de exposición y con una documentación ingente traza, en sus libros generales y en todos sus matices distintivos, los grandes movimientos de la literatura española en castellano desde 1936. Dentro de ellos coloca las singularidades más relevantes y da noticia del resto de escritores que constituyen el estado vivo de la creación literaria de un determinado momento. Así, reconstruye un panorama completo, abarcador de lo general y señalador de lo particular. Se establecen relaciones con el marco sociohistórico en elque la literatura se produce y consume y se enjuicia con una enriquecedora pluralidad de perspectivas, desde lingüísticas hasta sociológicas
