Mario Vargas Llosa by Raymond L Williams( Book )

Weaving analysis with discussions of the write's political commentary, Raymond Leslie Williams traces the author's youthful identity as a leftist student of the 1960s to a repudiation of some of his earlier ideas beginning in the 1980s. Providing a unique perspective on the complexity, nuance, and scope of Vargas Llosa's lauded early novels and on his passionate support of indigenous populations in his homeland, Williams then turns his eye to the recent works, which serve as a bridge between the legacies of the Boom and the diverse array of contemporary Latin American fiction writers at work today. In addition, Williams provides a detailed description of Vargas Llosa's traumatic childhood and its impact on him--seen particularly in his lifelong disdain for authority figures--approach, from Faulkner to Flaubert. Culminating in reflections drawn from Williams's formal interviews and casual conversations with the author at key phases of both men's careers, this is a landmark publication that will spark new lines of inquiry into an intricate body of work

The writings of Carlos Fuentes by Raymond L Williams( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smitten by the modernity of Cervantes and Borges at an early age, Carlos Fuentes has written extensively on the cultures of the Americas and on those elsewhere in the world. His work includes over a dozen novels, among them the Death of Artemio Cruz, Christopher Unborn, The Old Gringo, and Terra Nostra, several volumes of short stories, numerous essays on literary, cultural, and political topics, and some theater. In this book, Raymond Leslie Williams traces the themes of history, culture, and identity in Fuentes' work, particularly in his complex, major novel Terra Nostra. He opens with a biography of Fuentes that links his works to his intellectual life, a life that has been centrally concerned with finding and defining the source and character of Latin American culture. The heart of the study is Williams' extensive reading of the novel Terra Nostra, in which Fuentes explores the presence of Spanish culture and history in Latin America. Williams concludes with a look at how Fuentes' other fiction relates to Terra Nostra, including Fuentes' own division of his work into fourteen cycles that he calls "La Edad del Tiempo," and with an interview in which Fuentes discusses his concept of this cyclical division. Williams' analysis maps a terrain often left unexplored - the "Spanishness" of Latin American culture - and offers the most in-depth study currently available on Latin America's most prolific living novelist. It will be vital reading for all students of Latin American literature

The Novel in the Americas by Raymond L Williams( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Novel in the Americas contains thirteen provocative and timely essays by leading writers and scholars of the Americas. These essays touch deeply on issues regarding the role of art and critical thought in modern, or postmodern cultures. All of the writers cross and question boundaries - geographic, linguistic, and disciplinary - in their reflections on where we are today, where we have been, and where we can possibly go at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Included are works by Carlos Fuentes, Maxine Hong Kingston, William H. Gass, Larry McCaffrey, and others. "Every writer names the world. But the Latin American writer has been possessed by the urgency to discover," states Carlos Fuentes in the opening lines of this volume. Fuentes and a host of other distinguished intellectuals have been possessed by this urgency to discover, and the equally "possessed" Critical Studies of the Americas Committee of the University of Colorado at Boulder has spent four years organizing an inter-American dialog on the novel and the cultures of the Americas. This book presents a selection of some of the most fascinating moments of this multicultural exchange. The Novel in the Americas is the first volume in a new series from The Critical Studies of the Americas Committee. Each volume will provide interdisciplinary views on the Americas, North and South, as seen by major scholars from throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, the United States, and Canada
