The social conscience of Latin American writing by Naomi Lindstrom( )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this comprehensive, up-to-the-minute survey of research and opinion by leading Latin American cultural and literary critics, Naomi Lindstrom examines five concepts that are currently the focus of intense debate among Latin American writers and thinkers. Writing in simple, clear terms for both general and specialist readers of Latin American literature, she explores the concepts of autonomy and dependency, postmodernism, literary intellectuals and the mass media, testimonial literature, and gender issues, including gay and lesbian themes. Excepts (in English) from relevant literary works illustrate each concept, while Lindstrom also traces its passage from the social sciences to literature

Twentieth-century Spanish American fiction by Naomi Lindstrom( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanish American fiction has become a world phenomenon in the twentieth century through multilanguage translations of such novels as Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, Manuel Puig's Kiss of the Spider Woman, Octavio Paz's Labyrinth of Solitude, and Isabel Allende's House of the Spirits. Yet these "blockbusters" are only a tiny fraction of the total, rich outpouring of Spanish-language literature from Latin America. In this book, Naomi Lindstrom offers English-language readers a comprehensive survey of the century's literary production in Latin America (excluding Brazil). Discussing movements and trends, she places the famous masterworks in historical perspective and highlights authors and works that deserve a wider readership. Her study begins with Rodo's famous essay Ariel and ends with Rigoberta Menchu's 1992 achievement of the Nobel Prize. Her selection of works is designed to draw attention, whenever possible, to works that are available in good English translations. A special feature of the book is its treatment of the "postboom" period. In this important concluding section, Lindstrom discusses documentary narratives, the new interrelations between popular culture and literary writing, and underrepresented groups such as youth cultures, slum dwellers, gays and lesbians, and ethnic enclaves. Written in accessible, nonspecialized language, Twentieth-Century Spanish American Fiction will be equally useful for general readers as a broad overview of this vibrant literature and for scholars as a reliable reference work
Jorge Luis Borges : a study of the short fiction by Naomi Lindstrom( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A celebrated avant-garde poet and essayist in the 1930s, Jorge Luis Borges turned to short fiction as an experiment. The result was historic: within a decade, Borges emerged as one of the genre's greatest innovators. With "Jorge Luis Borges: A Study of the Short Fiction", Naomi Lindstrom provides a thought-provoking consideration of Borges's short fiction canon. Lindstrom traces the development of Borges's involvement with the short narrative, offering lucid critical analyses that render his intricate and difficult texts comprehensible for new readers. Also included in this volume are excerpts from Borges's revealing interviews with Fernando Sorrentino and valuable essays by Borges scholars Carter Wheelock and David William Foster. "Jorge Luis Borges: A Study of the Short Fiction" combines clear textual analysis with an informative overview of Borges's career as a writer to present an accessible portrait of this complex and innovative short fiction master. -- From publisher's description

6 editions published in 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much-needed new English-language version of Aves sin nido (1889). Work comprises Lindstrom's excellent introduction to the novel and her emendation of the first English translation (by J.G. Hudson, 1904). Lindstrom explains that she restored and translated author's preface and the other material excised or suppressed by the previous translator; returned chapters to their original order; and, in some instances, made the English more accurate or precise. Highly recommended"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Iracema : a novel by JOSE DE ALENCAR( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jose de Alencar's prose-poem Iracema, first published in 1865, is a classic of Brazilian literature--perhaps the most widely-known piece of fiction within Brazil, and the most widely-read of Alencar;s many works. Set in the sixteenth century, it is an extremely romantic portrayal of a doomed live between a Portuguese soldier and an Indian maiden. Iracema reflects the gingerly way that mid-nineteenth cenury Brazil dealt with race mixture and multicultural experience. Precisely because of its nineteenth-century romanticism, Iracema strongly contributed to a Brazilian sense of nationhood--contemp
