In her place: geographies of urban female labor in Spanish culture (1880-1931) by Maria Del Mar Soria Lopez( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation demonstrates how three aesthetic and ideological movements⁰́₄ such as costumbrismo, realism, and avant-garde⁰́₄construct characterizations of urban female workers in turn-of-the-century Spanish literature and culture as symbols of middle-class anxieties and desires as a reaction to experienced social and political instability in turn-of-the-century Spain. Costumbrismo, realism, and avant-garde highlight as the main social category from which writers such as Emilia Pardo Bazán, Benito Pérez Galdós, María Martínez Sierra, or Ramón Gómez de la Serna fashioned fictional urban working women⁰́₉s gender and work identities and their trajectories in various narratives. In particular, I claim that in these texts, the working woman⁰́₉s class conflicts with gender in the process of narrative signification, producing a multiplicity of contradictory meanings that expose turn-of-the-century bourgeois anxieties about women⁰́₉s emancipation and working-class unrest. My analysis of urban female working characters reveals that middle-class representations of working women result from a dominant conceptualization of class and gendered spaces in nineteenth and early twentieth-century Spain. For that reason, my thesis draws a geography of urban female labor through the analysis of the symbolic condensation of class, gender, and space in the cultural representations of urban working women. By doing so, I shed light on the ambivalent cultural location that working women have occupied in cultural representations of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Even though the construction and development of modern Spain could not have taken place without the participation working women⁰́₉s labor, this segment of the population has been ⁰́out-of-place⁰́₊ for too long in literary and cultural criticism. It is my hope that this dissertation will reposition these marginalized characters to their legitimate place in critical discourse

Female bodies under surveillance: gender fictions and the discourse of hygiene (Spain, 1850s-1930s) by Maria Del Carmen Rubio-Campos( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the mid nineteenth century onwards, the publication of prescriptive literature for and about women increased in Spain and reached its peak by the turn of the century, when manuals, essays, treatises and textbooks for girls experienced an unprecedented boom. This project studies the diachronic trajectory of the discourse of hygiene in manuals for women, as well as the alternating echoes of and antagonism toward this discourse which are found in prose fiction of the same period. I argue that the particular Spanish ambivalence about modernity vs. tradition is embodied in the self-contradictory discursive hybridity characteristic of the Spanish hygiene manual. This same ambivalence is mirrored in the literary production of the period: novelists endorsed or contested hygiene⁰́₉s standards, establishing a collaboration or antagonism with literary style at the root of this debate. Attitudes toward foreign influence played an important role in this ambivalence for scientific authority was associated with the foreign, while conservative Spanish ideals were incarnated in ideals of domestic womanhood. This is true regardless of the ideological positioning of the texts: for instance, while hygienist doctor Pedro Felipe Monlau promulgates the myth of the authoritative foreign-influenced physician in contrast with the passive Spanish ⁰́angel of the home, ⁰́₊ novelist Alejandro Sawa⁰́₉s raw attack on the biases of the Spanish medical establishment ironically echoes the privileging of gendered foreign authority found in Monlau⁰́₉s text of several decades earlier. In this way, both genres, the hygiene manual and the novel, expressed in gendered terms the preoccupations about modernization and economic change in Spain, shifting gender roles and cultural colonization

La obra poética de Vicenta Maturana de Gutiérrez by Kuan Wu( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The reason for studying Vicenta Maturana de Gutierrez (1793-1859) is to recuperate the poetry of a totally ignored woman writer whose literary activity was intense during the first half of the 19th century. Vicenta Maturana de Gutierrez published both poetry and prose, which ranged in style from Neoclassic to Romantic. Although she was the author of two romantic novels, Teodoro o el huerfano agradecido (1825) and Sofia y Enrique (1829), it is her poetic compositions, Ensayos poeticos, which are the subject of this study. Her Ensayos poeticos were published in three different editions in 1828, 1841, and 1859; they favor pastoral themes and deal with such topics as nature, friendship, and social criticism. Her poetry indicates a clear preference for the neoclassic poetic style; however, it was also influenced by a romantic subjectivity in so far as it expresses feelings such as melancholy and pain. In addition, her poetry displays a feminine consciousness, one that adds a distinctive feature to her work which was written at a time when few women writers dared to voice their rights as women. The main focus of the dissertation is to present an outline of the life and works of Vicenta Maturana de Gutierrez; to analyze the poems of the three editions of Ensayos poeticos; and to discuss in depth her collection of poetic prose, Himno a la luna, published in 1838. The dissertation consists of an introduction, four chapters, and a conclusion. Chapter One gives an account of the life and works of the poet, and it discusses her attitudes toward poetic creation. Chapter Two defines the characteristics and major themes of her poetry. Chapter Three discusses Himno a la luna and provides an account of the influence it received from the French writer Reyrac, author of the prose-poem Hymne au soleil. Chapter Four analyzes Vicenta Maturana de Gutierrez' style and versification. A conclusion argues that Vicenta Maturana de Gutierrez deserves attention for her early feminism and for the fact that she bridges the gap between neoclassic and romantic Spanish poetry

Fictional matters: death, emotion and representation in nineteenth-century Spain by Megan Kelly( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ultimately, my dissertation demonstrates that the liminal status of emotion, mediating between the body and the mind, makes it an appropriate vehicle for representing death, that liminal space between being alive and being dead, between the material and the ideal. As emotions inherently speak to the body, represented emotion facilitates a more comprehensive representation of the otherwise unknowable state of death
The national award in narrative literature and the role of art in democratic Spain (1977-2011) by Sally Perret( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In order to further explore this idea, I first analyze the rules that have governed the National Award at four different stages in the democratic period to show how the prize has evolved to include a wider variety of author/texts of diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds than ever before. I then demonstrate how, as one of the more visible literary prizes in the country, the National Award also serves to promote a specific idea of literature as a "high art" worthy of praise. I maintain that it is because literature is viewed as a distinct space, one that is both tied to and distanced from reality, that the idea of a multicultural yet cohesive national literary canon can be sustained. Finally, I also explore the role the National Award plays in promoting democratic values, in general, and active citizenship, in particular. I claim that, in addition to being a practice that benefits the state, the National Award also has the potential to be a platform from which to discuss a wide variety of social issues. In all, I argue that the National Award in Narrative Literature can be read as a powerful metaphor of the limitations and possibilities that nearly thirty-five years of democracy have brought to Spain
"Aguila o sol?" : a Riffaterrian analysis of the prose poems of Octavio Paz by Linda Janet Burk( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation is an analysis of Octavio Paz's ques Aguila o sol? (1951), a collection of three books of surrealistic prose poems to which critics have paid little attention. The methodology employed is the model Michael Riffaterre presented in Semiotics of Poetry. Chapter 1 contains historical background on the prose poem, a summary of Paz's theories of poetics from his prose writings, and an explanation of Riffaterre' s terminology. By applying this terminology, I demonstrate that the key to Paz's surrealistic imagery involves understanding ungrammaticalities (deviations of grammar or lexicon) and making connections to the hypogram (preexisting word group (s), which may be a system of signs possessing certain qualities or a complete text). Following this analytical procedure, readers understand the matrix (abstract concept of a poem) rather than just surface meaning presented in strings of surrealistic images. Chapter 2, provides a detailed analysis of the sixteen prose poems that comprise Trabajos del poeta. I demonstrate that the matrix of Trabajos del poeta is the constant struggle of the poet with language, and that the hypogram, on which it is based, is the myth of Prometheus. I show that overdetermined poetic signs simultaneously refer to the matrix and the hypogram, and that Paz uses conversion to transform the passive acceptance of the invader (eagle of the Prometheus myth) into an active struggle against the word(s) that invade the artist/creator of Trabajos del poeta. Paz transforms the negative connotations of the rock imagery into positive connotations of the artist's struggle with the substance of poetic language. Chapter 3 is a detailed reading of the ten prose poems that comprise Arenas movedizas, and Chapter 4 an analysis of eight of the prose poems of ques Aguila o sol? I establish that the matrix of these texts is the necessity to examine and question oneself and one's individual and national identity and that the hypogram on which they are based is Paz's own book of essays, El laberinto de la soledad (1950). The dissertation concludes with four appendices: "Semiotic Terminology," "Nahuatal Vocabulary," "Nahuatl Consonant Clusters," and a brief description of El laberinto de la soledad
