The Mexico City reader by Ruben Gallo( )

Proust's Latin Americans by Ruben Gallo( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part biography, part cultural history, part literary study, Rubén Gallo's book explores the presence of Latin America in Proust's life and work. The novelist lived in an era shaped by French colonial expansion into the Americas: just before his birth, Napoleon III installed Maximilian as emperor of Mexico, and during the 1890s France was shaken by the Panama Affair, a financial scandal linked to the construction of the canal in which thousands of French citizens lost their life savings. It was in the context of these tense Franco{u2013}Latin American relations that the novelist met the circle of friends discussed in Proust's Latin Americans: the composer Reynaldo Hahn, Proust{u2019}s Venezuelan lover; Gabriel de Yturri, an Argentinean dandy; José-Maria de Heredia, a Cuban poet and early literary model; Antonio de La Gandara, a Mexican society painter; and Ramon Fernandez, a brilliant Mexican critic turned Nazi sympathizer. Gallo discusses the correspondence{u2014}some of it never before published{u2014}between the novelist and this heterogeneous group and also presents insightful readings of In Search of Lost Time that posit Latin America as the novel{u2019}s political unconscious. Proust{u2019}s speculation with Mexican stocks informed his various fictional passages devoted to financial transactions, and the Panama Affair shaped his understanding of the conquest of America in a little-known early text. -- From publisher's website
New tendencies in Mexican art : the 1990s by Ruben Gallo( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The decade of the 1990s was one of the most turbulent periods in recent Mexican history marked by political assassinations, the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas, the signing of NAFTA, a catastrophic economic crisis, and the defeat of the PRI after seventy years of one-party rule. How did art respond to these events? To answer this question, Gallo examines some of the most radical artistic experiments produced in this period, from Daniela Rossell's photographs of Mexican millionaires to Teresa Margolles's manipulations of human remains, from Santiago Sierra's controversial work with human subjects to Vicente Razo's creation of a Salinas museum.--Publisher description
Mexican modernity : the avant-garde and the technological revolution by Rubén Gallo( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gallo uncovers a secret history of Mexican modernity that includes a number of fascinating episodes: the pictorialist backlash against Modotti and Edward Weston; the postcolonial Remington typewriter; Mexican radio at the North Pole; the campaign to aestheticize cement through journals and artistic competitions; and the protofascist political spectacles held at Mexico City's National Stadium in the 1920s."--Jacket
Freud's Mexico : into the wilds of psychoanalysis by Rubén Gallo( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, the author reveals Freud's previously undisclosed connections to a culture and a psychoanalytic tradition not often associated with him. Freud found a receptive audience among Mexican intellectuals, read Mexican books, collected Mexican antiques, and dreamed Mexican dreams; his writings bear the traces of a long-standing fascination with the country. This book offers detailed testimony to Freud's relationship to a country he never set foot in, but inhabited imaginatively on many levels
The sound of poetry, the poetry of sound by Marjorie Perloff( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sound has been all but ignored in the current discourse about lyric forms. This collection of essays seeks to readdress the fundamental connections between poetry & sound - connections that go far beyond traditional metrical studies
Conversación en Princeton con Rubén Gallo by Mario Vargas Llosa( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Una clase magistral sobre la actualidad y el oficio de novelista por el Premio Nobel de Literatura Mario Vargas Llosa. Universidad de Princeton, Nueva Jersey, 2015. Durante un semestre, Mario Vargas Llosa impartió junto a Rubén Gallo un curso sobre literatura y política. Ambos conversaron con los alumnos sobre teoría de la novela, y sobre la relación del periodismo y la política con la literatura, a través de cinco obras del autor: Conversación en La Catedral, Historia de Mayta, ¿Quién mató a Palomino Molero?, El pez en el agua y La Fiesta del Chivo. En estas conversaciones, el Nobel, con su brillantez acostumbrada, habla del oficio de escritor y de los retos a los que se enfrenta en la construcción de sus novelas, pero también ofrece un análisis inteligente de la actualidad. Es especialmente conmovedora la charla con Philippe Lançon, periodista del Charlie Hebdo que sobrevivió al atentado islamista perpetrado ese mismo año. Tres perspectivas complementarias confluyen en este libro: la del autor, que desvela el proceso creativo de sus novelas; la de Rubén Gallo, que analiza las distintas significaciones que las obras de Vargas Llosa cobran en el momento de su difusión, y la de los alumnos, que con sus reflexiones y preguntas dan voz a los millones de lectores de Vargas Llosa. Conversación en Princeton es una oportunidad sin igual para asistir a un curso magistral sobre literatura y realidad impartido por uno de los escritores más reconocidos y valorados en todo el mundo."--Amazon.com

Teoría y práctica de la Habana by Rubén Gallo( )

3 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Habana, señores, es un delirio alojado en un torbellino envuelto en mil paradojas. La Habana es indefinible: sólo se puede mostrar. Y eso hace este libro, un estallido no menos descomunal que el escenario de su peripecias. Un gran espejo. Muestra, por ejemplo, bares gays regentados por probos funcionarios de la revolución incorrupta, lactófagos consternados que deambulan por las calles en busca de leche líquida, ritos africanos que consagran los dogmas de la Santa Madre Iglesia (y las incontinencias locales), automóviles privados al servicio del transporte público para uso y disfrute de quienes se abren a las adventuras inesperadas o desesperadas, un cabaret en decadencia desde la irrupción del hombre nuevo que ahora rinde culto a la profesión (masculina) más antigua del mundo, una librería antes clandestina reconvertida en centro cultural de lenocinio y refugio de perros peregrinos, aquel 17 diciembre en que David y Goliat restablecieron sus relaciones diplomáticas tras cinco décadas de relaciones problemáticas, aquel 25 de noviembre en que murió el eterno Comandante...Los protagonistas de esta crónica son poetas y rufianes, pintores y jineteros, santos pecadores y crápulas angelicales: son la materia human de una ciudad incandescente. Todo esto ocurre a lo largo de los seis meses febriles que el autor pasó en la isla durante en año 2015. Un teórico arrojado a la práctica. Vio, vivió y registró lo que vivía con una prosa tan inflamada, tan generosa, como el espectáculo que retrata. La Cuba en tránsito hacia nadie sabe dónde ha encontrado por fin el texto que buscaba."--Page 4 of cover
