Masculinity after Trujillo : the politics of gender in Dominican literature by Maja Horn( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any observer of Dominican political and literary discourse will quickly notice how certain notions of hyper-masculinity permeate the culture. Many critics will attribute this to an outgrowth of "traditional" Latin American patriarchal culture. Masculinity after Trujillo demonstrates why they are mistaken. In this extraordinary work, Maja Horn argues that this common Dominican attitude became ingrained during the dictatorship (1930-61) of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, as well as through the U.S. military occupation that preceded it. Where previous studies have focused mainly on Spanish colonialism and the controversial sharing of the island with Haiti, Horn emphasizes the underexamined and lasting influence of U.S. imperialism and how it prepared the terrain for Trujillo's hyperbolic language of masculinity. She also demonstrates how later attempts to emasculate the image of Trujillo often reproduced the same masculinist ideology popularized by his government. By using the lens of gender politics, Horn enables readers to reconsider the ongoing legacy of the Trujillato, including the relatively weak social movements formed around racial and ethnic identities, sexuality, and even labor. She offers exciting new interpretations of such writers as Hilma Contreras, Rita Indiana Hernández, and Junot Díaz, revealing the ways they successfully challenge dominant political and canonical literary discourses

Adulterous nations : family politics and national anxiety in the European novel by Tatiana Kuzmic( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation examines the figure of the adulterous heroine of the nineteenth-century European novel as a symbol of national anxieties. The gendering of a nation or a nation-like collectivity as female has a long history, evident in expressions such as "Mother Earth" or "Mother Russia" and in myths considered foundational to modern European literature, such as Europa's abduction by Zeus or the Hebrew prophets' personification of Israel as an adulterous woman. The nineteenth century realist novel, written from within the newly emerged category of the nation-state, is especially rich in intersections of gender relations and national belonging, and it is no coincidence that adultery appears as the prevalent topic. Set in the 1830s milieu of the First Reform Bill and the Catholic Question, the love triangle in George Eliot's Middlemarch explores national boundaries through a romantic Polish rebel, who not only wins the girl, but a seat in Parliament by the end of the novel. Fontane's Effi Briest, by contrast, is set in the recently unified Germany, where Poland is too close to home to be romanticized. Effi's slighted husband, a high ranking official in Bismarck's service, kills his rival in an old-fashioned duel, while the shamed Effi returns to her parents' house, where she falls ill and dies. Lev Tolstoy's Anna Karenina reveals the anxieties of an empire stretched in too many directions. The Eastern Crisis is symbolized through the heroine's mangled body and her grieving lover's joining of the volunteer movement against Turkey, while Levin offers a solution to blurring boundaries by withdrawing into the country. August Senoa's The Goldsmith's Gold allegorizes Croatian political conflicts by placing the hero in a love triangle between a peasant girl, who represents the embodiment of both sexual and national purity, and a wealthy blond Germanic femme fatale, who breaks up the impending union of the first two

The Jewish family in antiquity( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of papers (or the offspring of papers) that were delivered by the Hellenistic Judaism section of the 1990 and 1991 annual meetings of the Society for Biblical Literature. In recognition of the fact that so little work had been down on the subject, presenters were not asked to focus on a single set of questions, a single body of evidence, or utilize a single methodology. Rather the goal was to get a sense of the range of possibilities suggested by the topic. The variety in this collection mirrors the variety of our evidence and the variety of questions that can be asked of it

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to the laws of oaths and vows of various types as they appear in biblical, Second Temple, and rabbinic sources. These institutions developed over time, and the oaths and vows mentioned in Second Temple literature should not be understood in light of subsequent rabbinic development. On the contrary: it is precisely the Second Temple texts, however obscure they may be, that provide the clues toward understanding the evolution of these institutions in rabbinic literature.
