Myth and archive : a theory of Latin American narrative by Roberto González Echevarría( Book )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a theory about the origin and evolution of the Latin American narrative, and about the emergence of the modern novel. It argues that the novel developed from the discourse of the law in the Spanish Empire during the sixteenth century, while many of the early historical documents concerning the New World assumed the same forms, furnished by the notarial arts. Thus, both the novel and these first Latin American narratives imitated the language of authority. The book explores how the same process is repeated in two key moments in the history of the Latin American narrative. In the nineteenth century, the model was the discourse of scientific travellers such as von Humboldt and Darwin, while in the twentieth century, the discourse of anthropology - the study of language and myth - has come to shape the narrative. Professor González Echevarría's theoretical approach is drawn from a reading of Carpentier's Los pasos perdidos, and the book centres on major figures in the tradition such as Columbus, Garcilaso el Inca, Sarmiento, Gallegos, Borges and Garcia Marquez
The voice of the masters : writing and authority in modern Latin American literature by Roberto González Echevarría( Book )

26 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cervantes' Don Quixote : a casebook by Roberto González Echevarría( Book )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel Don Quixote, written in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, is widely considered to be one of the greatest fictional works in the entire canon of Western literature. At once farcical and deeply philosophical, Cervantes' novel and its characters have become integrated into the cultures of the Western Hemisphere, influencing language and modern thought while inspiring art and artists such as Richard Strauss and Pablo Picasso. Based on Professor Roberto González Echevarría's popular open course at Yale University, this essential guide to the enduring Spanish classic facilitates a close reading of Don Quixote in the artistic and historical context of renaissance and baroque Spain while exploring why Cervantes' masterwork is still widely read and relevant today. González Echevarría addresses the novel's major themes and demonstrates how the story of an aging, deluded would-be knight-errant embodies that most modern of predicaments: the individual's dissatisfaction with the world in which he lives, and his struggle to make that would mesh with his desires. -- from back cover

Love and the law in Cervantes by Roberto González Echevarría( Book )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The consolidation of law and the development of legal writing during Spain's Golden Age not only helped that country become the first modern European state, but also affected its great literature. In this book, Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria explores the works of Cervantes, showing how his representations of love were inspired by examples of human deviance and desire culled from legal discourse." "Gonzalez Echevarria describes Spain's new legal policies, legislation, and institutions and explains how, at the same time, its literature became filled with love stories derived from classical and medieval sources. Examining the ways that these legal and literary developments interacted in Cervantes's work, he sheds new light on Don Quixote and other writings."--BOOK JACKET

José Martí : selected writings by José Martí( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jose Marti (1853-1895) is the most renowned political and literary figure in the history of Cuba. A poet, essayist, orator, statesman, abolitionist, and the martyred revolutionary leader of Cuba's fight for independence from Spain, Marti lived in exile in New York for most of his adult life, earning his living as a foreign correspondent. Throughout the 1880s and early 1890s, Marti's were the eyes through which much of Latin America saw the United States. His impassioned, kaleidoscopic evocations of that period in U.S. history, the assassination of James Garfield, the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge, the execution of the Chicago anarchists, the lynching of the Italians in New Orleans, and much more, bring it rushing back to life. Organized chronologically, this collection begins with his early writings, including a thundering account of his political imprisonment in Cuba at age sixteen. The middle section focuses on his journalism, which offers an image of the United States in the nineteenth century, its way of life and system of government, that rivals anything written by de Tocqueville, Dickens, Trollope, or any other European commentator. Including generous selections of his poetry and private notebooks, the book concludes with his astonishing, hallucinatory final masterpiece, "War Diaries", never before translated into English

La ruta de Severo Sarduy by Roberto González Echevarría( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La ruta de Severo Sarduy' sentó coordenadas de lectura cuya actualidad, en lo que atañe a la obra de Sarduy pero también en tanto operatoria crítica, viene a confirmarse con esta edición definitiva. González Echevarría aborda la singularidad de Sarduy en una dialéctica que pone en relación el extrañamiento con la tradición literaria de la que su autor es, por partida doble, heredero y disidente, y traza un itinerario marcado tanto por esa voluntad de recuperación como por la representación paródica de la búsqueda del origen, donde la carencia se suple mediante el privilegio concedido a la propia escritura, vehículo último de fundación y sentido
