Dodi, Amos Transcriptions of Hebrew Proper Nouns in a Fifteenth-Century Spanish Bible (MS. Escorial I.j.3). [Trad. Transcripciones de los nombres propios hebreos en la Biblia española del siglo 15. (MS. Escorial I.j.3) ] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: This article is concerned with the transcription into Latin letters of proper nouns (personal names and toponyms) in MS. Escorial I.j.3, a 15th-century Castilian translation of the Bible. The examples considered are taken from the book of Genesis, and compared when necessary to the transcriptions in the 15th-century Alba Bible, in Castilian translations of the Bible in 14th- and 15th-century manuscripts, and in Castilian court poems from the 15th century. In some cases the transcriptions are compared with those in the Vulgate and the Septuagint. The linguist working in this area faces considerable methodological difficulties, since the phonological systems of Hebrew and Castilian are quite different, so that, for example, some Latin letters are used to transcribe more than one Hebrew letter. Nevertheless, the diverse phonetic phenomena that come to light make it possible to complete certain details in our picture of the diachronic development of the pronunciation of Hebrew and Castilian in the Middle Ages up to the 15th century.

Pattison, David G. Legal Aspects of the Spanish Epic Tradition. [Trad. Aspectos Legales de la Tradición Épica Española] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: Many of the now lost epic legends of medieval Spain contain some degree of emphasis on legal matters: this is true of the stories of Fernán González, the Infantes de Lara, the infante García, and Sancho II. It is also true of a less widely known story, that of the ‘Slandered Queen’, wife of Sancho el mayor of Navarra. The one extant poetic text of the genre, the Poema de mio Cid, also betrays its author’s preoccupation with the written word and with legalism, not only in obvious instances like the document issued by the king when the Cid is banished, but also in more incidental (and thus possibly more significant) minor respects such as the sale of Alcocer to the Moors, the threat of legal action uttered by the Cid’s daughters before the afrenta de Corpes, and the concentration on the court scene as a more prolonged and effective climax to the action than the rather anticlimactic ensuing duels.

Tacker, Jonathan Lope de Vega, El cuerdo loco, and ‘la más discreta figura de la comedia’. [Trad. Lope de Vega, El cuerdo loco, y ‘la más discreta figura de la comedia’] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: Although examples of Lope de Vega’s engagement with the locura del mundo topos abound in his early dramatic works, written before the publication of Don Quixote, few scholars have registered the playwright’s interest in the theme. Taking as a point of departure Cervantes’s enthusiastic endorsement of the figure of the theatrical bobo, in Don Quixote, Part II, this study explores one play by Lope, El cuerdo loco, of 1602, in terms of its central ‘mad’ figure. The innovative use Lope made of madness in this play in which the prince, Antonio, is able to save his kingdom by feigning insanity, is seen to be another example of the perhaps unexpected sophistication and subtlety with which the dramatist handled his ideas.

Serrano Asenjo, Enrique Los Osuna de Antonio Marichalar: El Incendiario

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: This article analyses Riesgo y ventura del duque de Osuna (1930) by Antonio Marichalar, a biography of Mariano Téllez-Girón, considered one of the masterpieces of the revival of the genre of biography during the inter-war period, promoted by Lytton Strachey within the European setting and Ortega y Gasset in Spain. Marichalar’s main contribution lies in his pointing out the ‘empty’ vocation of the aristocrat, a member of the aristocratic estate of bellatores, during the bourgeois nineteenth century. Hence, the different disguises with which the character is concealed and defined by his biographer: endogenous, as the Romantic dandy, and exogenous or rhetorical, as a runaway horse (corcel desbocado), a ship adrift (barco sin rumbo) or a fire-raiser (incendiario), since he leads the immense family wealth into bankruptcy. The subtlety of Marichalar’s literary craft leads us to consider his true vocation as a writer, about to abandon literature and dedicate himself henceforth to writing history.

Henighan, Stephen. No History to Absolve Them: Spanish-American Revolutionary Discourse after 1990Caribe | Centroamérica
Cuba | México | Nicaragua


Identifying 1990 as an historical watershed, this article studies the erosion of the Spanish American revolutionary’s reliance on historical references rooted in an implicitly book-based culture as a justification for revolutionary violence. The argument takes as its point of departure Fidel Castro’s speech ‘La historia me absolverá’ and traces how the understanding of history shared by Spanish American revolutionaries of the 1960s promoted an ideal of self-sacrifice. The Nicaraguan Revolution adopted these ideals of discipline, martyrdom and self-denial, but used them to promote a more overtly nationalist revolutionary agenda. Events after 1990 made the ideal of self-sacrifice more difficult to sustain. The article closes with an examination of the attempt of Subcomandante Marcos of the Zapatista movement to reinvent the revolutionary persona in an egalitarian, visually based postmodern culture, finding in Marcos’s ideology a deeper compromise with Western liberalism than was visible in the writings of his predecessors.

Quintana Trias, Lluís Josep Pla a la península del Cap de Creus: la creació d’un cronòtop

RESUMEN NO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: The writer Josep Pla published, in 1927, several newspaper articles in which he described various places in Catalonia, including the area which has become known as the Costa Brava, which we will consider here. Though appearing to be merely journalism, with these articles Pla created a space-time composition that he would rework over a forty year period, creating a unique world in a personalized literary genre which cannot be assigned to the traditional literary taxonomy. We propose the Bakhtinian concept of the chronotope as a means of analyzing Pla’s configuration of space-time, for it is precisely this coming together of space and time that gives Pla’s work its unity and that characterises him as an author interested in looking for new literary forms, when faced with the crisis of literary genre during the first half of the 20th Century.

Sánchez García, Remedios Note: La poesía valeresca de juventud: una aproximación a la etapa de GranadaAntillas

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: This article deals with Juan Valera’s early poetry, written during the period when he was a student in Granada, and provides a key element in understanding his later literary work. It focuses on the failure of his first volume of poetry, Ensayos poéticos, which was published in Granada and withdrawn in the following days due to poor sales. This disappointment marked his subsequent professional career, and made him feel frustrated at not being considered a good poet, despite trying again on other occasions.
