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 395 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.

Don Álvaro, or, The force of fate (1835) : a play by Ángel de Saavedra, Duke of Rivas ; translated from the Spanish by Robert M. Fedorchek ; introduction by Joyce Tolliver by Angel de Saavedra Rivas( Book )

24 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 227 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.

Une parabole de toute existence humaine

Constituye un espléndido retrato del clima social, espiritual, intelectual y político de la España de la época. Hija de un general del zar, Sacha Savarof abraza los principios revolucionarios y se entrega a la defensa de la justicia y de la libertad, y, tras diversas peripecias por Suiza e Italia, se casa en segundas nupcias con el pintor español Juan de Velasco. En España, sin embargo, tampoco encuentra la felicidad, pues a un nuevo fracaso conyugal se une el choque con la mentalidad cerrada y retrógrada que advierte en las gentes durante sus viajes por el norte de la Península, Madrid y Andalucía, y que contrasta con el carácter, costumbres y formas de vida de otros pueblos europeos
