Foundational arts : mural painting and missionary theater in New Spain by Michael Karl Schuessler( )

13 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Foundational Arts examines how the relationships between mural painting and missionary theater became a transcultural process for mass conversion of Native populations to Christianity. Schuessler studies the New World expressions of dramatic and plastic arts and how they became the tools of European friars to Christianize Native peoples and ultimately create a new literary and artistic tradition"--Provided by publisher
Elena Poniatowska : an intimate biography by Michael Karl Schuessler( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Descended from the last king of Poland, born in France, educated at a British grade school in Mexico and a Catholic high school in the United States, Helene Elizabeth Louise Amelie Paula Dolores Poniatowska Amor - otherwise known as Elena - is a passionate, socially conscious writer who is widely known in Mexico and who deserves to be better known everywhere else." "Michael Schuessler, who befriended Poniatowska more than fifteen years ago, is a knowledgeable guide to her engrossing life and equally engaging work. As befits her, his portrait is itself a literary collage, a "living kaleidoscope" that is constantly shifting to include a multiplicity of voices - those of fellow writers, literary critics, her nanny, her mother, and the writer herself - easily accessible to general readers and essential to scholars. Available in English for the first time, this insightful book includes 40 photographs and an annotated bibliography of Poniatowska's works - those that have already been translated into English and these awaiting translation."--Jacket
Peregrina : love and death in Mexico by Alma M Reed( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alma Reed arrived in the Yucatan for the first time in 1923, on assignment for the New York Times Sunday Magazine to cover an archaeological survey of Mayan ruins. It was a contemporary Maya, however, who stole her heart. Felipe Carrillo Puerto, said to be descended from Mayan kings, had recently been elected governor of the Yucatan on a platform emphasizing egalitarian reforms and indigenous rights. The entrenched aristocracy was enraged; Reed was infatuated--as was Carrillo Puerto. He and Reed were engaged within months. Yet less than a year later--only eleven days before their intended wedding--Carrillo Puerto was assassinated. He had earned his place in the history books, but Reed had won a place in the hearts of Mexicans: the bolero "La Peregrina" remains one of the Yucatan's most famous ballads. Alma Reed recovered from her tragic romance to lead a long, successful life. She eventually returned to Mexico, where her work in journalism, archaeology, and art earned her entry into the Orden del Aguila Azteca (Order of the Aztec Eagle). Her time with Carrillo Puerto, however, was the most intense of her life, and when she was encouraged (by Hollywood, especially) to write her autobiography, she began with that special period. Her manuscript, which disappeared immediately after her sudden death in 1966, mingled her legendary love affair with a biography of Carrillo Puerto and the political history of the Yucatan. As such, it has long been sought by scholars as well as romantics. In 2001, historian Michael Schuessler discovered the manuscript in an abandoned apartment in Mexico City. An absolutely compelling memoir, Peregrina restores Reed's place in Mexican history in her own words
Elenísima : ingenio y figura de Elena Poniatowska by Michael Karl Schuessler( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in Spanish and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Constructed as collage - the best way to mark the cardinal points of her life -- this book leads the reader to discover an extraordinary woman and writer, Elena Poniatowska, creator of a vast work that imperceptibly alternates between the media and literature, the testimony and the novel. This updated edition is a living calidoscope composed of a varied choir of voices: those of her mother, her grandmother, her fellow writers, literary critics, correspondences and most importantly, the portrait she draws of herself

Publisher description. Alma Reed arrived in the Yucatan for the first time in 1923, on assignment for the New York Times Sunday Magazine to cover an archaeological survey of Mayan ruins. It was a contemporary Maya, however, who stole her heart. Felipe Carrillo Puerto, said to be descended from Mayan kings, had recently been elected governor of the Yucatan on a platform emphasizing egalitarian reforms and indigenous rights. The entrenched aristocracy was enraged; Reed was infatuated--as was Carrillo Puerto. He and Reed were engaged within months. Yet less than a year later--only eleven days before their intended wedding--Carrillo Puerto was assassinated. He had earned his place in the history books, but Reed had won a place in the hearts of Mexicans: the bolero "La Peregrina" remains one of the Yucatan's most famous ballads. Alma Reed recovered from her tragic romance to lead a long, successful life. She eventually returned to Mexico, where her work in journalism, archaeology, and art earned her entry into the Orden del Aguila Azteca (Order of the Aztec Eagle). Her time with Carrillo Puerto, however, was the most intense of her life, and when she was encouraged (by Hollywood, especially) to write her autobiography, she began with that special period. Her manuscript, which disappeared immediately after her sudden death in 1966, mingled her legendary love affair with a biography of Carrillo Puerto and the political history of the Yucatan. As such, it has long been sought by scholars as well as romantics. In 2001, historian Michael Schuessler discovered the manuscript in an abandoned apartment in Mexico City. An absolutely compelling memoir, Peregrina restores Reed's place in Mexican history in her own words
Tuyo hasta que me muera... : epistolario de Alma Reed (Pixan Halal) y Felipe Carrillo Puerto (H'Pil Zutulché) : marzo a diciembre de 1923 by Alma Marie Reed( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perdidos en la traducción by Michael K Schuessler( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En1962, una fotografía de Marilyn Monroe sin ropa interior tomada en México recorrería el mundo. En ese viaje, la actriz eligió muebles para su casa, visitó el foro donde se filmaba El Ángel Exterminador, comió tacos y compró un suéter que más tarde se subastaría en ciento sesenta mil dólares. Quince años después, el magnate Howard Hughes agonizaba en el hotel Princess de Acapulco, donde había decidido abandonarse de tal forma que cuando fue trasladado a Houston--famélico y con la barba y las uñas crecidas--tuvo que ser reconocido a través de sus huellas digitales. Este libro recopila algunas de las singulares historias de extranjeros que,por una u otra razón, recalaron en México: como William Burroughs,que llegó al D.F. junto a su mujer Joan, huyendo del conservadurismo de su país, para terminar envuelto en un escándalo por el asesinato de ésta; B. Traven quien, huyendo de las autoridades alemanas, llegó a México para escribir El tesoro de la Sierra Madre, novela que luego llevarían al cine John Houston y Humphrey Bogart; y Edward James, millonario inglés, que eligió un terreno en lo alto de la sierra Huasteca para situar un jardín surrealista que pervive hasta hoy. Perdidos en la traducción es un apasionante viaje por México visto a través de ojos extranjeros, miradas foráneas que terminaron sumergiéndose en lo más apasionante de este país
