It breaks our heart to share some very sad news with all of you. Juan Rodriguez, a dear member of the Spanish Marie family, passed away on Friday. Spanish Marie has lost a brother, and the world has lost a truly amazing human being. Those of you fortunate enough to know him, remember him as a fun-loving, kind-hearted person who always knew how to lighten the mood. He was attentive and reliable, lending a hand when people needed it the most, we all knew we could always count on him for anything.
He inspired us to urgently pursue the things we loved and cherished. His infectious laugh and smile will remain in our hearts forever. Our deepest condolences go out to his loved ones.

Some beef jerkey, By making available in English the work of four of these poets, Kay Pritchett's volume fills an important need. The volume is preceded by a short six pages historically-focused introduction, which accurately situates these poets against the literary climate that preceded them and calls attention to their innovative stance, and to the polemics it triggered.
It also reports on the most important anthologies and critical studies of these poets, which should be most helpful for Spanish-speaking readers who wish to pursue the topic further.

The selections from each poet's work are preceded by brief but very telling critical introductions. I found particularly useful Pritchett's way of highlighting key stylistic traits of each poet's work and relating them, specifically, to some of the texts included. Written with the English-speaking general reader in mind, these introductions avoid the tangential biographical material that so often dominates other anthologies, and concentrate on telling us what we need to know in order to read perceptively the poems included.
Written with clarity and elegance, they are a pleasure to read. This excellent format will allow the reader who controls some Spanish to get a sense of the originals. The selections, in my mind, represent the poets' work about as well as can be done in this amount of space, while also containing a good number of their best-known texts this is especially true of Carnero.
The translations are on the whole extremely successful, a most difficult task given the nature of these works on the one hand, and their recondite allusiveness on the other. Pritchett's English versions are both faithful and real poetry; the teacher of a course in translation should be able to use this volume with confidence. In three books and numerous essays, Malcolm K. Read has shown impressive critical skills and a range that is nothing short of remarkable.
Juan Huarte de San Juan offers a superb introduction to this complex and influential writer, physician, and precocious psychologist -and, interestingly, to Read's later projects. The Birth and Death of Language focuses on the interrelation of literary text and linguistic theory in Spain between and Visions in Exile brings psychoanalysis and, as would follow, the body into a study of Spanish literature and linguistics during the period of to Needless to say, the enterprise is difficult, for reasons both historical and methodological.
The three guiding figures -metonyms, one might say- of Language, Text, and Subtext are, arguably, Alexander A. For Read, Hispanism in Britain has been ruled by a neo-Thomist school whose proponents foreground Golden Age texts and deal in a brand of moralistic interpretation that fosters its own esthetic norms and, less conspicuously, a socio-political agenda that does not seek to challenge the status quo.
Derrida leads the way to dazzling critical performances rather than to a  radical change in the order of things. The historicizing process outlined by Read encompasses the institution of Hispanism as well as texts, and Kristeva's examination of signifying practice provides a model from which to survey the concept of the subject within the two domains. Read is a most subtle and perceptive reader, whose commentaries are uniformly engaging but, perhaps appropriately, resistant to framing.
Because Kristeva's work and Read's metacommentary are so dependent on figurative language and on theoretical formulations, the search for the subject -a search that involves the linking of literature, linguistics, psychoanalysis, politics, and the gender issues that inform each of these categories- forces us to confront layer upon layer of abstraction. Marxist esthetics, a juxtaposition that some would view as oxymoronic and others would acknowledge as more oriented toward ideology than to art, might be easier to defend as a metadiscursive tool than as a critical model.
While I cannot help but admire the nobility of purpose along with the critique -the critical history- of British Hispanism, and while I agree in general with the assessment of the past, I am not fully convinced that Read is not trading one predetermined notion of relevance for another. As is understandable, his subject in every sense of the term is elusive and made more so by what may be designated as interdisciplinary, or interdiscursive, shifts. This is not to say, of course, that the individual parts of the study and the movement through time are other than rich and suggestive.
Language, Text, Subtext gives us a strong sense of the circumstances under which literature is created, contextualized, politicized, and evaluated. This is a book that I plan to reread, to discuss with colleagues and students, and to attempt to penetrate. I suspect that its author would believe that I have misread the projection of the subject; this may be true, but the questions raised have inspired me to revise my readings of the texts under scrutiny and to review the broader bases of Hispanism.
That this may be a lemma for our historical moment and for the foreseeable future seems likely and, in its own way, comforting. From its appearance as a metaphor for civility in the ancient Hellenic world to its shifting significance among the Church Fathers and their concerns with secular and religious antagonisms, the city was often paired with the countryside as convenient symbols of conflicting values. Sharpe points out that the urbs-rus polarity extends well into the nineteenth century, though it does not necessarily connote a neat division between virtue and vice.
With respect to its function as theme and setting in literature, the city has occasioned a variety of developments such as multiple points of view, the emergence of new characters like the bureaucrat and the sophisticated woman, and the topics of anonymity, alienation, and social role-playing. All the more remarkable then, are his achievements as he transformed ambiguity and disorder into striking portrayals of character and setting that continue to delight and enlighten.
Perhaps the most graphic example of social disorder is found in O Crime do Padre Amaro , the subject of the second chapter, where the very embodiment of the celestial city, the clergy, subvert their role in a pursuit of power, pleasure, and profit. In her often provocative analysis of an important writer, Peggy Sharpe shares her considerable insight and the results of wide reading in her generous bibliography. The inevitable? Este es el realismo que Villanueva subscribe.
Daniel Balderston's new book on Borges opens repeating the widely held belief that Borges' work is abstract and devoid of any relationship to history, politics, and society, especially in Latin America. The results are impressive and offer a new perspective on the stories of Ficciones and El Aleph. In the story Menard, it will be remembered, manages to create fragments of three chapters 9, 22, and 38 of the Quijote. Chapter 9 is the most memorable for the reader because of the mirth produced when Borges' narrator quotes from it and then compares it to the identical passage in Cervantes.
Who but Menard would have had the bravura to cast the question in those terms? Ironically, this is precisely the method that Menard first considers, then rejects. The results are no less interesting and significant than in the chapter on Menard. The thoroughness and sheer effort involved in this impressive book cannot but leave the reader with a certain sense of inadequacy. It is a daunting challenge, no doubt and one that Balderston himself fulfills admirably.
Yet, for all its thoroughness, for all the wealth of detail, there is something missing here. Would these not provide a context for the stories every bit as important as the historical personages and events that are explicated? It might be argued that this work purposely chooses to limit itself to external historical and political references. But the discussion stops there. But Out of Context does not attempt to show that that these political views are present in the stories or form part of their background and context.
Despite this lacuna, Out of Context is an important contribution to the large and growing bibliography on Borges. Daniel Balderston puts to rest once and for all the myth that Borges was a writer of fantastic literature who was out of touch with the world around him. Out of Context will no doubt prove to be a work of lasting importance. Until recently no book-length study existed of the drama by Rodolfo Usigli , Mexico's foremost XXth century playwright. In spite of the fact that his work had attracted significant but isolated critical attention, reflected mostly in doctoral dissertations and journal articles, a good deal of his work had not been studied or had received only marginal treatment.
Rodolfo Usigli and the Mexican Stage constitute a good start in the development of a body of criticism covering the artistic contribution made by this important Mexican playwright. Of the four titles, A Theatre for Cannibals is likely to remain as the most accessible and comprehensive study of Usigli's work. The result is a very thorough and carefully thought out analysis of Usigli's central works. The book is divided into eight chapters, each containing detailed commentary on the socio-historical relevance and the thematic, structural and symbolic aspects of representative plays.
The first and the last chapters are of a more general nature covering Usigli's dramatic theories and his preoccupation with universal themes, while the other six are dedicated to the close examination of about one third of Usigli's total dramatic production. The next four chapters are organized thematically according to Usigli's interest in social and political issues while the next two deal with his treatment of psychological and historical subjects. In other words, its critical approach is strictly analytical and interpretive, without much reliance on contemporary critical and theoretical methods.
Much to his credit, such a traditional, subjective approach does not prevent the writer from conducting a most probing and revealing examination of Usigli's best works. The result of this line of inquiry is quite successful.
This reviewer was particularly impressed with the extensive analysis of El gesticulador and of the Corona trilogy and with the exquisitely detailed reading of the social and psychological plays. This study is of consistently high quality in terms of the discussion of individual plays and the use of biographical and socio-political background.
It is also elegantly and very clearly written. Luneli for Francisco A. The use of critical terms such as satire, melodrama, metatheater, and farce is, at times, vague and imprecise. The choice of a title for this study is not a very apt one either. Finally, the reader may find it puzzling to discover that there is no conclusion at the end of the book.
All these minor problems notwithstanding, A Theatre for Cannibals is an important addition to the Usigli bibliography and a most valuable contribution to the study of modern Mexican drama. This text is not an historical overview nor is it an attempt to apply New Criticism to the Hispanic American theatre. Its title is a credible indication of its purpose and contents -this is a study of the extent to which the so-called generational theory may be applied to the Hispanic American theatre.
Dauster completes the referential material with a nine-page Index of Works Discussed. The focus is on common denominators and differences in the writers' life experiences and how they are expressed in their works for the stage. Dauster makes his characteristically exhaustive analysis of the material under study. The clarity and depth to which he fathoms the existing essays devoted to the generational approaches to literature, including the theatre, are exceptional. A major result of the study is his clear, persuasive argument that the two major criticisms of the generational theory -that it is inflexible and given to rigid biological determinism- simply are not true.
This volume is worthwhile for this contribution alone. The subsequent commentary and defense of Arrom's theory, including the thirty-year span for each generation, is likewise convincing and becomes the critical basis for the readers as they turn to the specifics of each of the dramatists and theatres under study. Dauster devotes his generational profile to the theatres in Argentina, Mexico and Chile, he says, because the processes that lead to these three theatres are so diverse and complicated  that they offer the best scenario for testing Arrom's theory in general and for the Generation in particular.
Chapters 3, 4 and 5, which take up those theatres separately, are true gems of scholarship. In each the process began with a tension between the established theatre of the preceding generation and the theatre originating with the populace; in each the process was affected by the immediate political environment and process; and each resulted in an initial response to the realism that characterized the generation's initial works for the stage.
This is a work that very few, perhaps only Dauster, would be qualified or prepared to write; it is based on a career dedicated to the genre and on the determination to bring Hispanic American theater to popular and critical attention. Whether one is a casual reader or a serious student of the genre, Dauster's writings have always been a first source of dependable critical evaluation and original insights.
This work will stand as one of his most important of his contributions to the study of theatre. We hope his projected continuation of this study, volumes devoted to the Generations of and , are not long in coming. Yet, each in its own way contributes to a greater understanding of Mexico. The Mexicans is a practical guide for United States students and businesspeople likely to be dealing with middle-class Mexicans. The reader learns that in Mexican culture Sunday is family day; work is not synonymous with personal identity; machismo is alive and well despite changing times; polite people will tell you what they think you want to hear; mealtime is an important social occasion; and good grooming and polite manners are essential to getting along from day to day.
Though Heusinkveld observes that the use of contraceptives and the presence of strong female roles on TV are instigating change, machismo remains an explosive minefield for U. The Mexicans prepares U. One of the most readily apparent differences is that Americans tend to see a relationship between hard work and success indeed this belief is basic both to U.
Another fundamental difference becomes apparent when the irresistible force of the U. These disparate attitudes stem from opposing notions of the power of the individual: the U. Those who remain receptive to other ways of  thinking and being will broaden their own world view and attain a deeper access to Mexican culture; those who do not will be blocked from the outset. Within these limits, it provides a handy, concise, and illuminating overview of Mexican culture.
At the other end of the spectrum lies The Evolution of the Mexican Political System, a collection of essays stressing the urban, gradual nature of political change. Thus, rather than featuring revolutionary figures or the role of the rural masses in bringing about breaks with the past, these essays examine constitutions, elections, and political parties in order to show the sequential and autonomous nature of Mexican political history.
Essays on the nineteenth century treat the evolution of independent political institutions. Christon Archer shows how the army of New Spain developed decentralized counterinsurgency groups during the War of Independence, while Virginia Guedea demonstrates the importance of the elections of in offering an alternative to armed revolt. Barbara Tenenbaum deals with the political and economic importance of the northern provinces to newly-independent Mexico. Elisabetta Bertola, Marcello Carmagnani, and Paolo Riguzzi treat the two phases of nineteenth century liberalism -triumphant and inert- and demonstrate how the latter excluded certain groups from power.
Essays on the twentieth century describe how the country came under national control after the Revolution of Historians Paul Vanderwood and Steven Topik provide concluding comments. One wonders with Topik why this would be considered a virtue. But even within their own severely internalist political approach, as Topik points out, the authors could have illuminated the workings of the political system beyond elections, parties, and officials. However, while this collection leaves many intriguing political questions untouched, it clearly achieves its main purpose in presenting a strong case for the crucial role of urban institutions and groups in the evolution of Mexico's political system.
Diane E. Marting's special project has been the compilation of useful information about Latin American women writers. Her earliest undertaking, begun in , gathered very basic information. With the rise of women's studies, many scholars realized how little they knew of Latin American women authors and their works.
This catalog of names, bibliographies, and summaries of works was raw information, but a real starting place for researchers. Fifty chapters by various authors presented fifty Spanish American women writers and their work, plus coverage of Indian women writers and U. Latina writers. This compilation succeeds largely because the critics selected are so well attuned to the authors they discuss. Designed so as to be usable by readers who know no Portuguese, it provides a useful, orienting characterization of the author and her writing  as well as a bibliography of works by and about her.
Lispector Brazil, ? Lispector often cannibalized her own earlier publications, so that the contents of one volume sometimes overlap those of another. She wrote a good deal of now-forgotten journalism. Not only did she occasionally use pseudonyms, but some titles published under her name may not be entirely her work. For information about work Lispector left unpublished at her death, critics depend largely on the word of her literary executor Olga Borelli.
Marting succinctly explains these confusing circumstances and how she dealt with them. Clarice Lispector opens with a general presentation of the author and her writing. Part A then offers brief essays on her works, including her children's stories, written by various Lispector critics. Each essay is followed by a list of editions, an annotated where possible register of translations, and an annotated bibliography of criticism. The last sections of Part A proficiently classify and describe the murkiest portions of Lispector's oeuvre , such as her translations -with some rewriting- of others' works, her publicly accessible correspondence, her uncollected journalism, and the posthumous work that Borelli published in her book on Lispector.
Part B lists adaptations, such as dramatizations and film versions, of Lispector's work, homages to the author, and Lispector criticism not focused on any single work. Clarice Lispector: A Bio-Bibliography is a highly competent and knowledgeable guide through a great deal of information, some of it difficult to obtain or incomplete and unreliable, especially concerning some thorny questions of attribution. Any bibliography that approaches exhaustive coverage of an author's writing has a few absurd moments, such as the listing here of a letter in which Lispector grants a reader's request for advice on dating.
While the bibliography lists some undeniably obscure and ephemeral items, readers can easily skip these sections in favor of the chapters on well-recognized works. A reproduction of one of the many portraits of the dramatic-looking Lispector, whose appearance is alluded to more than once in the text would have been useful. It is an expert compilation and will be helpful to specialists, but it can also be used by readers just beginning to know Lispector. Going well beyond any existing Lispector bibliography, Marting's compilation can be enthusiastically recommended for acquisition by libraries and students of Lispector's work.
Much of Western literature comes from the contributions of the Hispanic World. Three inclusive histories, all of the 20th century, suggest both lineage and continuity. The earliest appears to be Julio Cejador y Frauca's fourteen volume Historia de la lengua y literatura castellana A twentieth century endeavor, the encompassing histories, always in Spanish and compiled by Spaniards, generally are spaced by an average of twenty-five years. And the volume under review here continues the pattern. The general editors are Felipe B.
Each tome naturally follows a similar format: an introduction, the period in context, and then a series of chapters suited to the materials. In fact the index indicates that the chapters have numbered subdivisions making for easy retrieval. Each major section is then followed by two bibliographies, works cited and others of interest.
In addition to the very detailed table of contents, an index of authors and anonymous works further accesses the materials. La prosa del siglo XVI, 3. La prosa barroca, 6. Each chapter is then further subdivided and accessed, e. Contexto socio-cultural, 1. Palabras preliminares, 1. La impronta del descubrimiento en la sociedad, 1. This pattern of careful subdivision and access is repeated throughout the volume. The value lies in the recency of the publication, the extreme care with organization and the editors' efforts to coordinate the Spanish literatures of both continents, and the liberal interpretation of the term literature.
The volumes at hand allow for an easier retrieval of materials than any of the three histories mentioned earlier. The greatest difference, however, from earlier histories is the broadness of the interpretation in giving the user an interdisciplinary approach to the literature. It appears obvious, however, that editors and associate editors limited a large part of their research to Spain.
A perusal of colonial Spanish American literature in the Handbook of Latin American Studies from to reveals the absence of more recent and American sources. With the focus on the colonial period in the last twenty years, especially as noted in U. Siglo XIX follows the format of careful arrangement into the following chapters: 1. La literatura hispanoamericanas en su contexto, 2. La novela realista, 5. El teatro, and 7. Pensamiento y ensayo. Historians, linguists and journalists often do not find place in histories of literature.
The presence of fields cognate to literature marks the interdisciplinary character of the volumes as in the colonial period. The two volumes, Epoca virreinal and Siglo XIX must be placed in the context of the total endeavor: fifteen tomes with four left to be published for Spanish America.
The result is the overwhelming task of a complete history making accessible years of Hispanic literature. A spot check on the colonial period and the 19th century suggests that the massive undertaking lacked American contacts, or at least this was not noted in identifying the editors. In spite of Manual's problems, it is to date the best integrative  history of the literature of the Hispanic World. Most of these essays by the well-known Brazilian critic and social commentator were translated by the editor, who selected and collated them from the author's books, interviews, and articles.
A respected critic of Machado de Assis, the editor has also provided many footnotes and an informative introduction to the principal theme; i. The book's sixteen chapters consider the misalliance of cultural forms and national reality in a variety of contexts including literature, politics, and film. In every instance the author's insights are remarkable and often quite provocative.
To be sure, the disfunction escaped Alencar himself, who remained unaware of such incongruities. Clearly Schwarz views Brazil's dependency on derivative cultural forms with some pessimism, which explains his admiration for Machado de Assis and his novels grounded in irony and disenchantment. For similar reasons he admires the late Anatol Rosenfeld, who avoided the aprioristic idealism of the right no less than the reductionism of the dogmatic left, a stance that, as he points out in a chapter on the late philosopher, resulted in being pilloried by both sides of the national spectrum.
There seems to be but a single typographical error viii and, for the most part, the translations range from adequate to quite good. Even in the shadow of translation, however, the breadth and depth of analysis are well worth the reader's effort. The book is divided into eight sections that follow a brief introduction. In discussing sixteen different critical tendencies, archetypal criticism, feminism, psychoanalysis, and linguistics, among others, Urbina uses invariably the same pattern: 1 respectful commentary of about five or six specific studies that use the particular point of view, 2 summary and evaluation of their good points, 3 a challenge from the point of view of the theory of signs.
The process of writing is seen as a translation of one system of signs into another, bearing in mind that an absolute equivalence is impossible. He does, however, proceed to discuss this point in the following section, where the main focus is on the function of the process of reading as it appears in the novels. An extremely brief conclusion constitutes the seventh chapter and this part of the study could have definitely been extended with a more detailed discussion.
Furthermore, the presence of so many diverse critical opinions mostly quoted in their original tongues often buries Urbina's voice and one could wish that more provocative and daring questions had been raised by the author of the study. In addition, one of the noticeable shortcomings of the book is the lack of attention it pays to the woman as a sign and the paradigmatic patterns she creates. Weldt-Basson explores the rich narrative of Roa Bastos's second novel in this perceptive study of the use of narrative dialogues. Undoubtedly I the Supreme is the novelist's most complicated work to date.
It offers a wealth of examples of intertextuality and dialogic perspectives including an implied dialogue between the reader and the text. Weldt-Basson establishes the connection between this novel and the novelist's previous work, the seminal Hijo de hombre , as well as Son of Man, , and early collections of short fiction. She reviews the novel's fragmented structure by focusing on its complex use of narrative voice and symbolism. In her comprehensive analysis of Roa Bastos's novel she stresses the fact that a specific type of discourse at the same time that it is individualized is also social in nature.
She discusses the dialogic relationship between the novel and history and examines how the novel both answers-questions and parodies historical texts at the same time that it amplifies and exaggerates historical events. While the critic investigates Roa's use of historical documents, she studies the incorporation of nonhistorical intertexts into the corpus of the novel. She concludes that these dialogic interpretations reveal two fundamental types under which all other dialogic variants may be subsumed: 1 a dialogue among the voices of the characters and narrators within the novel, and  2 a dialogue between I the Supreme and other texts outside the novel -texts that have been incorporated into its pages through allusion, citation, and parody.
On a broader scale, these two types of dialogism imply a dialogue between the reader and the text. The volume contains an introduction, four chapters, and a conclusion. Chapter 1 studies voice and dialogism in the novel. In Chapter 2 Weldt-Basson explores the dialogue between reader and text. The third chapter is an analysis of the dialogue between the novel and historical intertexts, while the last chapter analyzes the relationship between the novel and nonhistorical texts.
The volume contains a biblography and an index.
