The severed word : Ovid's Heroides and the novela sentimental by Marina Scordilis Brownlee( )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 1,554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this wide-ranging study Marina Scordilis Brownlee investigates the importance of the letter--often a complex interplay of objectivity and subjectivity--in the establishment of novelistic discourse. She shows how Ovid's Heroides explore the discourse of epistolarity in a way that exerted a lasting effect on Italian, French, and Spanish works of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, especially on the fifteenth-century Spanish novela sentimental, or "sentimental romance." Presenting this protonovelistic form as a highly original rewriting of Ovid, Brownlee demonstrates that its language model interrogates rather than affirms the linguistic referentiality implied by romance." "Whereas the ambiguity of the sign had been articulated in fourteenth-century Spain (most notably by the Libro de buen amor), it is the fifteenth-century novela sentimental that fully grasps the existentially, novelistically dire consequences of this ambiguity. And in the process of deconstructing the referentiality that underlies romance, the novela sentimental reveals itself to be a discursively essential step in the evolution of the modern novel.

The cultural labyrinth of María de Zayas by Marina Scordilis Brownlee( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brownlee shows that Zayas exploits existing fiction models in highly literary ways and in ways that cash in on the new phenomenon of tabloid publishing, arguing that Zayas is keenly aware of the new readership that resulted from the mass-production revolution in the printing industry and of the private readers' taste for scandal."--Jacket

Cervantes' Persiles and the travails of romance( )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and Spanish and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays presents new ways of looking at Cervantes' final novel. Persiles, a work that engages with geopolitical models of race, ethnicity, nation, and religion, takes its inspiration from the highly influential Ethiopian Story (the Aithiopika) of Heliodorus. With particular relevance to the period, the Persiles questions the issue of cultural pluralism in the Spanish empire and emphasizes the need to rethink the radically altered category of lo bárbaro/the barbarian (which included not only the Jew, the Muslim, and the Gypsy, but also the criollo, the mestizo, and the indiano), a new multiracial and multiethnic reality that posed a profound challenge to early modern Spain. The contributors offer a range of perspectives in spatial theory, psychology and subjectivity, visual culture, and literary theory."--

Promiscuous grace: Beauty, decay, and the divine in the legend of Saint Mary of Egypt by Sonia Bjørnstad-Velázquez( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Promiscuous Grace explores how aesthetics and theology converge in the concept of grace understood as both divine gift and a feature of beauty. It suggests that surprising forms of beauty, including the grotesque, emerge when we attend to the complex interactions of sacred and profane elements in pre-modern works. This complexity is easily lost to modern readers who, careful to avoid orthodoxy, read hagiography against the grain often focusing on the scabrous aspects of the genre at the risk of identifying it too quickly with an aversion to beauty. Three medieval and early modern Iberian instantiations of the legend of St. Mary of Egypt are at the core of this project: an important anonymous thirteenth-century poem, Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca; a baroque play by Juan Perez Montalban (c. 1638), La gitana de Menfis; and paintings by Jusepe de Ribera (1591--1652). These works trace Mary's transformation from dissolute twelve-year-old to penitent hermit, a conversion effected through the intervention of an image of the Virgin Mary. In its singular triangulation of beauty, decay, and the divine, the life of this particular saint functions as an exceptional vehicle for artists and poets to reflect on the question of representation in general and particularly on the function of beauty in works that ostensibly are about penance and asceticism. I show how each version of the legend is sustained by a web of relations: between sacred and profane, beauty and deformity, tradition and innovation, doctrinal content and sensual form. This relational approach leads to a more general reconsideration of both aesthetics and religion as spaces of active cultural negotiation rather than as neutral, closed, and self-referential spheres. This dissertation thus contributes to recent theoretical work on the intersection of religion and secular culture by offering an alternative to the methodological impasse created when works from the past that explicitly engage religion are seen as simply affirming or subverting doxa
Carta blanca : Representations of self in sixteenth-century epistolary fictions by Nuria Sanjuán Pastor( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carta Blanca explores the role that the epistolary form played in the development of an early modern subjectivity. This study investigates how authors navigated epistolary conventions and the expectations of a changing readership in order to express their own personal voice and affect their public identity. Each of the three chapters approaches this topic from a different perspective: chapter one focuses on the history of the epistle, chapter two considers the social impact of the publication of familiar letters, and chapter three explores the materiality of the written form. The first chapter traces the literary development of Garcilaso's "Epistola a Boscan" as a hybrid that combines the letter's tendency toward self-exposure with the lyric's use of poetic artifice to express a complex subjectivity. By considering the formal traits that Garcilaso's verse epistle shares with the epistolary and the lyric traditions, I reveal how even a so-called "familiar" address to a friend is always simultaneously an exercise in fictional writing. Taking Antonio de Guevara's Epistolas familiares as a focal point, my second chapter considers the effects of printing one's own collection of personal letters. In his text, Guevara performs a public identity that exists only insofar as it is represented outwardly. Guevara is a public intellectual only because he plays the part of the "hombre cuerdo" in front of an audience. In turn, his public persona can only succeed if his readers trust that a printed letter exposes a truthful familiar exchange. The third chapter considers Teresa of Avila's letters as physical objects and explores how they acquired the status of relics soon after her death. I argue that these letters manage to represent the individuality of Teresa through the use of her own identifiable language, the presence of her hand, and the emphasis on her suffering. In the faithful's eyes, these textual relics embody the humanity of the saint. All three of these very different authors help us understand the growing desire for self-expression that unfolded as early modern subjects sought independence from the community and developed new forms to represent their individuality
