Leopoldo Lugones : selected writings by Leopoldo Lugones( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of Leopoldo Lugones, Argentina's best-known writer during his lifetime, spans many literary styles and ideological positions. He was influential as a modernist poet, as a precursor of the avant-garde, and also as the poet of Argentine nature. His short stories (Las fuerzas extranas [Strange Forces], 1906) were early examples of the fantastic in Latin American fiction and influenced Borges, Quiroga, and others. His characters, often scientists and doctors experimenting in the transmutation of thought, reflect his interest in the uncanny and inspired contemporary interest in animism and occultism. His prose works include La guerra gaucha (1905) and the essay El payador (1916) in which he idealized the gaucho as a heroic figure, popular poet, and symbol of Argentine identity. Lugones altered his political views many times, adopting radical anarchism and, later in life, fascism. He was therefore a controversial figure, both acclaimed and scorned by his contemporaries. His adherence to the importance of literary form drew criticism from the new generation of writers, such as Borges, but Borges later stated in 1955 that "Lugones was and continues to be the greatest Argentine writer.""--BOOK JACKET
The dissonant legacy of modernismo : Lugones, Herrera y Reissig, and the voices of modern Spanish American poetry by Gwen Kirkpatrick( )

In The Dissonant Legacy of MODERNISMO, Gwen Kirkpatrick offers a provocative new reading of a crucial and often misunderstood period of Spanish American literature. Most studies of modernismo have focused on the poetry of Rubén Darío and have noted the movement's aestheticism, distance from mundane concerns, and its unmistakable French influences. Kirkpatrick concentrates instead on important negations of harmony and the movement's internal dismantling of its own precepts. Major contradictions within the movement itself are revealed through the works of the Argentine Leopoldo Lugones and the Uruguayan Julio Herrera y Reissig. Extending her analysis to later writers such as Ramón López Velarde, César Vallejo, and Alfonsina Storni, Kirkpatrick shows the changes that foreshadow the more overt experiments of these poets and illuminates the continuity between the modernistas and later generations. Powerful statements by Latin American writers from the late nineteenth century to the present attest to the impact of modernismo. By showing the movement's bases in Romanticism and Symbolism, the author sets the stage for ironic and parodic disavowals by the dissonant modernistas, primarily Lugones and Herrera y Reissig. The particularly Spanish American context of a movement marked in so many ways by its derivative nature is revealed, and we see the poets confronting social and technological changes, shifting sexual mores, and technical poetical innovations. The passage from the harmonic world view proposed by Darío to vanguardism and a more modern poetry is one of the most debated topics in literary history. Asserting the need to rethink our catagories of literary convention, this book invites us to look once again at the poetry that formed a twentieth-century sensibility. In includes the dissonant voices of these modernistas. We can see in its contradictions and aggressiveness, its questionings of European authority, its physicality, its preoccupation with the urban scene, its exploration of language itself, poetic roots that continue to flourish in contemporary literary creation. -- Inside jacket flaps

Seven essays by scholars including Gwen Kirkpatrick and Beatriz Sarlo treat historical, literary, and biographical topics.

Leopold Lugones--Selected Writings by Leopoldo Lugones( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a collection of stories, political writings, and literary essays by the man whom Borges called ""the greatest Argentine writer. Argentina's best-known writer during his lifetime, Leopoldo Lugones's work spans many literary styles and ideological positions. He was influential as a modernist poet, as a precursor of the avant-garde, and also as the poet of Argentine nature. His short stories (Las Fuerzas Extranas: 1906) were early examples of the fantastic in Latin American fiction and influenced Borges, Quiroga, and others

Sleek Words: Art Deco and Brazilian Modernism by Patricia A Soler( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I examine the architectural field in the Brazil during the 1920s. Art Deco was a popular style and skyscrapers rapidly appeared in Rio de Janeiro with Art Deco ornamentation. I link the rapid dissemination of the style to a similar architectural style in the region, the Neocolonial Style. I examine the origins of both styles to question their claims to national "authenticity"

Borges in Hollywood: From Art House to Blockbuster Cinema by Monica Simorangkir( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

I identify postmodernism as the cultural movement that motivates contemporary cinematic appropriations of Borges. Although I do not share Fredric Jameson's negative stance toward postmodern culture, I employ his Marxist theories on postmodernism as the cultural dominant of late capitalism to conceptualize pastiche as a marketing strategy. I propose that contemporary cinematic pastiches of Borges signal a film industry desperate to overcome exhausted narrative forms

Towards a Transnational Aesthetic in Latin American Literature by Cecily Colleen Raynor( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis looks at the representation of national and transnational spaces in contemporary Latin American literature. In doing so, it argues that contemporary writing expands both the geographical imaginary of the physical spaces of the state and more significantly, frequently alters the conceptual envisioning of nation through unsettling its conventionally understood links to history, language, and identity. I develop the notion of literary transnationalism as an emerging aesthetic, defined by its handling of space, time and social cohesion. I argue that the region's contemporary literature moves away from the clean parameters of nation and into bi-national, multi-national, de-national, post-national, extra-national, and virtual domains. This framework includes: 1) migration-related texts 2) multi-territorial texts that traverse many geographies 3) nationally ambiguous or undefined texts, including Marc Augé's non-places 4) and texts imbedded in extra-national and virtual realms. I define space as a finite system of representation with imagined limits, be they geographical, national, linguistic or digital
