Dressed to Kill

Dressed to Kill

Autor: Elizabeth Rhodes ,

Número de Páginas: 234

The noble wives in María de Zayas's Desengaños suffer terrible fates: one is beheaded, another poisoned, one is cemented into a chimney, while yet another is locked into a tiny wall closet where she dies. The hallmark of Zayas's aesthetics, these characters are the central reason why her fiction has increased in popularity through the ages. Yet their stories pose an apparent contradiction between the author's pro-female rhetoric and her gusto for killing model women, then beautifying their mutilated cadavers. Dressed to Kill reconciles Zayas's Desengaños with the age in which it was written, contextualizing the book in baroque poetics, the Spanish honour code, and fifteenth-century martyr saints' lives. Elizabeth Rhodes elegantly uncovers Zayas's intention to reform the Spanish nobility by displaying noble misbehaviour and its deadly consequences. Her book concludes by detailing the Desengaños' intriguing influence on the aesthetic base of Gothic literature by revealing that its authors were avid readers of Zayas.

La Vida de Lazarillo de Tormes Y de Sus Fortunas Y Adversidades

La Vida de Lazarillo de Tormes Y de Sus Fortunas Y Adversidades

Autor: Everett W. Hesse , Harry F. Williams ,

Número de Páginas: 84

First published in 1554, Lazarillo de Tormes was destined to beget a whole new genre, the so-called picaresque novel. Its great popularity may be attributed largely to its daring autobiographical form, which allows the reader to observe the magnificent, conquering Spain of Charles the Fifth through the inner consciousness of a humble figure called Lazarus, whose name, perhaps, comes from the poor leper mentioned in the Gospels. The Lazarillo is the first literary expression of a feeling basic to the very existence of the Spanish people, especially since the fifteenth century: they were what they were, and at the same time many were not pleased with their way of existing. This feeling of anguish is the "tragic sense of life," in the words of Unamuno.

A bilingual edition of Fray Luis de León's La perfecta casada

A bilingual edition of Fray Luis de León's La perfecta casada

Autor: Luis de León ,

Número de Páginas: 280

Leon (1528-91) is known today mostly as a master poet of Spain's Golden Age, but in his own day he was regarded primarily as an academic, and his poems were little regarded by him and little known by others. Here he describes and prescribes marriage in the purely Christian context of the period, and suggests how women can live out their narrowly defined roles within it. Many of his views would be patriarchal and anti-feminist in today's society. The facing pages of Spanish and English text are double spaced. No index is provided.

The New Testament of the King James Bible

The New Testament of the King James Bible

Autor: Several Authors ,

Número de Páginas: 600

Más que un libro, la Biblia es —como indicaba el término griego del que procede el nombre: __ ______, "los libros"— una colección de 74 libros, los 47 del Antiguo Testamento y los 27 del Nuevo, escritos a lo largo de más de mil años y reunidos posteriormente en un solo volumen. En ella encontramos historia y narraciones folklóricas, códigos de leyes y poemas, parábolas y refranes, oráculos proféticos, cartas y genealogías. Pero para los cristianos, a través de esa gran variedad de estilos y formas literarias, es el mismo y el único Dios el que se dio a conocer a los hombres, desde Abraham hasta Jesucristo. A medida que las Escrituras se difundieron por todo el mundo fueron surgiendo numerosas versiones en los más variados idiomas, y actualmente existen traducciones íntegras de la Biblia en más de 405 lenguas.

Cervantes: El Viejo Celoso and El Celoso Extremeno

Cervantes: El Viejo Celoso and El Celoso Extremeno

Autor: Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra ,

Número de Páginas: 61

Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) is considered the literary figurehead of Spain. "El Viejo Celoso" and "El Celoso Extremeno" are representative of his short works in two different genres in each of which he excelled: the short, one-act comedy and the extended short story. Each in its distinctive way refashions the ancient tale tradition of the jealous husband and the adulterous wife and engages with the psychological, moral and social issues surrounding it. In "El Celoso Extremeno" - set in Seville and the Americas - the social and human frame expands, and horizons generally broaden. Here the sexual and matrimonial themes are linked to an exploration of the themes of delusion and freedom which reveals Cervantes as one of the most enquiring minds of the early modern world. This edition of his work provides an extensive introduction, including new research and new critical thought.
