On the contrary, Fuentes confronts key issues with a perspective that will no doubt prove interesting and valuable to specialists in the field. Could the dreams of Felipe Montero perhaps be those of Carlos Fuentes? The bulk of the book is a carefully reasoned, meticulously detailed history of the culture and civilization of Spain and Latin America. Unearthing the buried mirrors of Amerindian and Mediterranean traditions, Fuentes holds them up to one another across the Atlantic Ocean and chronicles in four hundred brief but constantly fascinating pages the infinite images that the two cultures reflect in those facing mirrors.
The final section takes a look at the present and the future, at a third great center of Hispanic culture in the United States that is making its presence increasingly felt. Between the lines and in the margins -like the writing in the margins of that greatest of all Spanish writers, Miguel de Cervantes- are to be found several themes that rise above the rest of the work.
He points out the successive instances in which the former has won out over the latter: the defeat of the comuneros by Charles V at Villalar in , the reversion to caudillismo after Independence in Latin America, the failure of the Mexican Revolution, and the dictatorships of Franco, Pinochet, and too many others. A second overriding theme that runs the length of this book, as it runs the length of Spanish history, is the question of the Other.
Hispanic peoples -in Spain from its very beginnings, in Latin America from the time of the Conquest, and in the United States today- have always been faced with and comprised of different races and systems of belief.

This question was no less pressing in the years following Independence. And it was equally real in the struggle between the landed and the landless during the Mexican Revolution. Today it is equally present in the United States, as the Anglo population faces a steadily-growing number of Latino citizens in its midst.
Fuentes pulls no punches with his American readers. He offers criticism when he feels the need and praise when praise is due. It is an Oedipal struggle of sorts which must be played out in order for the Other to be accepted and integrated into society. Historically, the authoritarianism of the fathers has won out in the Latin American political tradition brought over from Spain. In the patriarchal heritage of Hispanic culture, the father has always dominated, in whatever form he might appear, cacique, caudillo, dictador , or macho.
In a move of mythic dimensions, the son must subvert the power of the father, so that both can stand together side by side as equals. Perhaps the horror of Felipe Montero at the end of Aura is Oedipal in nature, as the sumptuous young woman he believes he is about to make love to turns out to be the maternal figure of Consuelo Llorente. The act brings down Macondo, that mythopoetic macrocosm of Latin American society. It opens the way for a new society. The dilemma of the Other is particularly urgent for the Hispanic population in the United States.
Albright College. In the Introduction, Francesca M. In the selection process the translators took into consideration the quality of the plays, the reputation of some of the authors, the potential found in other less known dramatists, and, above all, the staging possibilities of these works 5. By and large, the translations are well done and flow smoothly. Despite these shortcomings, the English rendition of the anthology is commendable for its high quality and fluidity.
The Introduction and Notes serve as important keys to an appreciation of the Cuban theater in the United States. This Introduction surveys the historical background of Cuban playwriting from its beginnings to the contemporary exile literature.
However, the translations sometimes lack additional clarifying notes which would help us to understand certain cubanismos , syntactical structures, and necessary historical and cultural events used as background information in the plays. All this was nicely done in the original Spanish lyrics included in the Notes at the end of the play Screens by Dolores Prida.
The Selected Bibliography is quite helpful also. It attests to the effort of these Cuban playwrights to propagate their voices in the melting pot of the American culture. Before the translation of each play, the editors include biographical data on the authors as well as a valuable explanation of their writings and thematic approaches. Due to the few translations of Cuban plays in the United States, this anthology has accomplished its purpose. It can be considered an important tool for Anglo audiences who wish to learn more about the Cuban theater outside the Island.
For academic and professional theatrical groups, the book provides an opportunity to stage these short plays in English. Instructors at the secondary and university level planning to teach a course in translation on the contemporary Hispanic theater should consider this edition as either a text or reference source. Luis A. Florida Southern College.
The articles are drawn from the different enterprises of history, ethnography, anthropology, and literary criticism by professors in Spanish, English, French, and Comparative Literature. The articles in this work provide fresh interpretations of the encounter from both perspectives -that of the New World peoples and the European.
Published in Spain in , the Libro copiador provides a version that differs significantly from the one that served as the original, and for all practical purposes only, representation for almost five centuries. The encounter of incompatible peoples from perplexingly different cultures mandated that they could only negotiate through death and complete destruction. Despite defeat, the Americans were never assimilated to the European new world order.
Quint and Knapp discuss this and two curses of the Indians that still plague the victors -syphilis and tobacco. The conclusion is that the Andean peoples and culture, although experiencing a catastrophe of cosmic dimensions, did not vanish in the sixteenth century. However, all changes with the philosophy of the Enlightenment that produces the idealized Noble Savage. However, the expedition was a failure and he never found the empire of El Dorado, the Inga of Manoa or any riches. The book is a balanced, well-written, thought-provoking, and intriguing overview of the momentous meeting of peoples from perplexingly different cultures.
New World Encounters is highly recommended and a must read. Lee A. Texas Christian University. Brought together in honor of retiring Brazilianist Fred P. Ellison, the thirteen pieces comprising the volume were, for the most part, both previously unpublished and originally written in Portuguese. They are also prefaced by an introduction in which the editor first briefly traces the rather recent antecedents of Brazilian literary criticism, from both North and South American perspectives.
The remainder of the introduction then deals with the body of the collection, offering an abbreviated overview of each of the essays. The book closes with bio-bibliographical entries on the contributors.
Inexorable (Short Story) (Otherworlds Book 7)
Tropical Paths is successful in its stated intention to be a mosaic of the Brazilian narrative from the romantic period on, i. Charles A. David Jackson comments on the relationship between, again, fictional memorialismo and political protest. By and large, Tropical Paths brings to teachers, scholars and aficionados alike, access -particularly English-language access, with the exception of limited quotes - to essays of varied critical approaches.
Together, they offer a faithful panorama of the vibrancy and pluralism of Brazilian literature and its criticism, as well as deserved homage to Fred P. Ellison, who, throughout his career and ours, has so inspired us all. Malcolm Silverman. San Diego State University. The narrator, a local shopkeeper, observes his coming and going and the subsequent arrivals and departures of two women who visit him on separate occasions. The older woman brings a young boy with her, and on a visit near the end of the narrative both women come to the town at the same time.
The shopkeeper slowly becomes the protagonist of the novella, while the man and the two women complete the cast. This critical volume is divided into an introduction, three chapters, an epilogue, a bibliography, and a general index.

The second chapter is a careful analysis of previous studies dedicated to Los adioses. This volume is yet another attempt to define the role of the reader in the creative process. In Los adioses we never do find a definitive answer that clearly identities the relationship that binds the shopkeeper, the tuberculosis victim, the two women who visit him, and the reader of the text.
