Rediscovering the New World : inter-American literature in a comparative context by Earl E Fitz( )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of "American" literature is not the exclusive province of any one nation. Thanks to the historical circumstances that governed the European conquest and settlement of the Americas, we can and should approach the writings of English and French Canada, the United States, Spanish America, and Brazil as a cohesive group of American literature, worthy of study without constant reference to European texts. Now, Rediscovering the New World makes a timely addition to this expanding field on Inter-American scholarship that should help lead tothe formation of a new canon. Th
Ambiguity and gender in the new novel of Brazil and Spanish America : a comparative assessment by Judith A Payne( )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first book-length study to compare the "new novels" of both Spanish America and Brazil, the authors deftly examine the differing perceptions of ambiguity as they apply to questions of gender and the participation of females and males in the establishment of Latin American narrative models. Their daring thesis: the Brazilian new novel developed a more radical form than its better-known Spanish-speaking cousin because it had a significantly different approach to the crucial issues of ambiguity and gender and because so many of its major practitioners were women. As a wis

Machado de Assis and female characterization : the novels by Earl E Fitz( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the nature and function of the main female characters in the nine novels of Machado de Assis. The basic argument is that Machado had a particular interest in female characterization and that his fictional women became increasingly sophisticated and complex as he matured and developed as a writer and social commentator. This book argues that Machado developed, especially after 1880 (and what is usually considered the beginning of his "mature" period), a kind of anti-realistic, "new narrative," one that presents itself as self-referential fictional artifice but one that also cultivates a keen social consciousness. The book also contends that Machado increasingly uses his female characterizations to convey this social consciousness and to show that the new Brazil that is emerging both before and after the establishment of the Brazilian Republic (1889) requires not only the emancipation of the black slaves but the emancipation of its women as well. -- Amazon.com

Comparative cultural studies of Latin America : CLCWeb annual 2 by Sophie A McClennan( )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The volume is the second annual of "CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture, a thematic volume with selected papers from material published in the journal in volumes 3.1-4 (2001) and 4.1-4 (2002), edited by Sophia A. McClennen and Earl E. Fitz. The genesis of the texts in the volume is in the growing conviction of the editors that, given its vitality and excellence, Latin American literature deserves a more prominent place in comparative literature publications, curricula, and disciplinary discussions. The editors argue that there still exists, in some quarters, a lingering bias against literature written in Spanish and Portuguese, and that by embracing Latin American literature more enthusiastically, comparative literature in the context of comparative cultural studies would find itself reinvigorated, placed into productive discourse with a host of issues, languages, literatures, and cultures that have too long been paid scant attention in its purview. Following an introduction by the editors, the volume contains papers by Gene H. Bell-Villada on the question of canon, by Gordon Brotherston and Lucia de Sa on the first peoples of the Americas and their literature; by Elizabeth Coonrod Martinez on the Latin American novel of the 1920s; by Roman de la Campa on Latin American studies; by Earl E. Fitz on Spanish American and Brazilian literature; by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria on Latin American and comparative literature; by Sophia A. McClennen on comparative literature and Latin American studies; by Alberto Moreiras on Borges; by Julio Ortega on the critical debate about Latin American cultural studies; by Christina Marie Tourino on Cuban Americans in New York City; by Mario J. Valdeson the comparative history of literary cultures in Latin America; and by Lois Parkinson Zamora on comparative literature and globalization. Compiled by Sophia A. McClennen, the volume also contains a bibliography of scholars
