Lodares, Juan R. La comunidad lingüística en la España de hoy. (Temas y problemas de diferenciación cultural)América Latina

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: This article applies ‘cultural (pseudo)differentiation’ theory — the human tendency to draw barriers between similar groups — to explain the state of the linguistic community in modern Spain. Its central argument is that powerful social groups now find it more interesting and profitable, in political, economic and employment terms, to promote regional languages than the common language space. This is not something new in Spanish linguistic history but rather a traditional phenomenon, also found in Latin America and the Philippines under Spanish rule.

Guízar, Eduardo El discurso auto-reflexivo en el Lazarillo de Tormes

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: Self-reflexive discourse in Lazarillo de Tormes attests to the fact that, prior to the theories on rationality proposed by Descartes, there exists a kind of rationalization that serves to fill the void occasioned by the reforms of the Illuminati with a recentering of Self. Among these reforms one finds a direct dialogue with God without recourse to ecclesiastic intermediaries, and an emphasis on Weber’s idea that the processes of rationalization reduce the magic of the priest as a means of salvation. The protagonist’s dialogues are then extended to himself, bringing about another Self within the literary character.

Penrose, M. Allan (In)visible ‘tipos’: ‘Los llamados atrás’ in Serafín Estébanez Calderón’s Escenas andaluzas. [Trad. (In)visibles ‘tipos’: ‘Los llamados atrás’ en Escenas andaluzas de Serafín Estébanez Calderón] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: The proposition of this paper is that Estébanez Calderón intended to refer specifically to individuals with homoerotic attractions in his description of the ‘llamados atrás’ in his costumbrista article ‘Pulpete y Balbeja’. The literary critic González Troyano’s interpretation of ‘llamados atrás’ as a ‘confusion’ seems to suggest a heterosexist reading of Estébanez Calderón’s article. This paper, however, proposes an alternative reading of ‘Pulpete y Balbeja’ in order to show that Estébanez Calderón was indeed employing ‘llamados atrás’ to refer to men with homoerotic interests and that, specifically, Pulpete and Balbeja are examples of ‘llamados atrás’. It will also explore the term ‘homosexual’ as an anachronism in describing persons who had same-sex love interests and/or sexual experience in the Spanish Romantic era.

De Ràfols, Wifredo  Del cubismo a las circunstancias. El motivo de la mesa en dos momentos de la trayectoria poética de Jorge Guillén: ‘Naturaleza viva’ y ‘A nivel’

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: Critical judgments of ‘Naturaleza viva’, recognised as one of Cántico’s representative poems, have tended to overlook its external references, including those which point to cubism, to the figurative value of the table as an exemplary object of philosophical discourse, and to another of Jorge Guillén’s poems, ‘A nivel’, representative of his second great book, Clamor. The label ‘cubism’ has been applied to Cántico more than once, but without ever disclosing the reasoning that informs the attribution. In this respect, many are the prosodic, syntactic, and thematic elements that establish the cubist underpinnings of ‘Naturaleza viva’, while the philosophical and material motif it shares with ‘A nivel’ serves to draw a synthetic comparison that illustrates how Guillén’s poetics changed in the span of three decades, from the beginnings of Cántico to the conclusion of Clamor.

Read, Malcolm K. The Idealist Origins of Postmodern Colonial Studies: The Early Work of Walter Mignolo. [Trad. Los Origines Idealistas de las Investigaciones Coloniales Posmodernas: Las Primeras Obras de Walter Mignolo] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: The present article reviews, from a critical, theoretical standpoint, the ‘semiotic of Culture’ that leading colonialist Walter Mignolo undertook to construct in his early works. These works combined classical structuralism, which promotes an objective approach to literature, with its inverted, equally positivist counterpart, hermeneutics, which foregrounds the role of the subject. Both projects collapse at the point where they run up against the existence of an all-encompassing ‘ideology’. Their underlying ahistorical, neo-Kantian idealism secretly nurtures a ‘resistance to theory’, based on a flawed philosophy of science. We play off this neo-Kantian idealism at all points against the critical realism of Althusserian Marxism, which theorizes the notion of an ‘ideological unconscious’. On the latter’s terms, as expounded by the Marxist scholar, Juan Carlos Rodríguez, not all ideological discourses operate, historically, through the category of the subject. The epic, essay and autobiography serve to illustrate the contrasting critical approaches under review.

Rodero, Jesús Sobre los ángeles: evolución del cuento fantástico latinoamericano en el siglo XXAmérica Latina

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: The fantastic represents a constant in Latin American narrative of the 20th Century. This article analyses the presence and evolution of this narrative mode in Latin American literature through the study of four short stories, each representing a different literary trend: the ‘modernismo’ of marvellous tone (‘El ángel caído’, Amado Nervo), the demystifying magical realism (‘Un señor muy viejo con unas alas enormes’, Gabriel García Márquez), the transgressive post-boom (‘El ángel caído’, Cristina Peri Rossi), and the feminist post-modernism (‘Moraleja para ángeles’, Sonia González Valdenegro). The main theories on the fantastic are reviewed and used in the particular analysis of the short stories: from the classic distinction established by Todorov between the marvellous, the uncanny, and the fantastic to the most recent critical studies (Lucie Armitt, Remo Ceserani, etc.), including other decisive and essential contributions such as those by Rosemary Jackson and Irène Bessière.
