Murillo, Edwin. Poeta herido: José Martí y su desazón antropocéntrica. p. 747-766 Cuba

Resumen

The privileged place of José Martí in Hispanic letters is due to the innovative force of his philosophical and literary works. This reformative and anti-positivist virtue, which helps to explain his contemporariness, must be taken into account for any history of existentialism, a cultural phenomenon which has attracted much academic attention, but not in a chronological Hispanic American context. To this end, we delineate proto-existentialist positions in the philosophy and the poetry of the Cuban, José Martí. In this essay I mainly focus on the anthropocentrism of his famous ‘Prólogo al "Poema del Niágara"’ (1882) and I analyse ‘Juicios’ (1878), a seldom studied text, within an existentialist context for the first time. I also consider the poetic figure of Homagno, from Versos libres (1913), as an icon of Martian disquietude. In contrast to English-language critics, who have never included Cuban works in the canon of existentialism, my reading demonstrates that Martí engaged modern man's orphanhood, the constructiveness of his era's social norms, and showed hope in the forcefulness of free will and the challenge of living dangerously free.

Siglo XX

Resumen

This paper studies the representation of the Mexican ‘other’ in the letters written by the Norwegian Maggie Plahte between 1910 and 1920. Her letters were ‘discovered’ and edited twice, and twice they were presented as a ‘female gaze’. My analysis does not confirm this presentation. Rather than a gendered gaze on Mexico, Maggie's representation of Mexicans and of indigenous Mexicans in particular, is class- and race-related. More specifically, the Mexican Revolution shakes her rather romantic image of ‘the Indian’ and contributes to a racialization of her discourse. A violent and transgressive Indian appears who challenges the comfortable distance that allowed for an image of the indigenous as an innocent child or a man of nature. The revolutionary Indian turns Maggie's comfort zone into a danger zone, a conflict zone.
