  • Mirrored Narrations and Basque Nationalism: Literary Folds in José Javier
           Abasolo’s El aniversario de la independencia
    • Abstract: [T]he multiple is not only what has many parts but also what is folded in many ways. The multiplicity of tensions between the Spanish state and Basque regions in the Iberian Peninsula forms the foundation of José Javier Abasolo’s (Bilbao, Spain, 1957) 2006 novel El aniversario de la independencia (“The Anniversary of Independence”).1 The story takes place a year after the fictionalized secession of Basque regions from Spain and focuses on the relationship between Jokin Etxaniz, a police officer (ertzaintza) in the newly sovereign Basque Country, and Alexander (Alex) Pedrosa, an ex-member of ETA who joins the police force and is partnered with Jokin. The novel’s multiplicity is found in its narrative ... Read More

  • Intermixing German and Russian in Lou Andreas-Salomé’s Travelogue
           Russland mit Rainer and Katja Petrowskaja’s Autobiographical Narrative
           Vielleicht Esther
    • Abstract: Lou Andreas-Salomé’s 1900 travelogue, Russland mit Rainer (“Russia with Rainer”), and Katja Petrowskaja’s autobiographical narrative Vielleicht Esther (“Maybe Esther,” 2014) were written more than a hundred years apart, yet they share strikingly common linguistic ground.1 Both works are written in German, and both include numerous switches into Russian. A comparison of the functions of this intermixing of languages in the two texts reveals that the switches are charged with deep emotion. For the two writers, Russian was the language of childhood. Consequently, they employ transitions in language to negotiate the linguistic identities of their first-person narrators. However, there are also important ... Read More

  • “Nicht Fliehen, hinschauen.”: Inter-Ethnic Relations in Eginald
           Schlattner’s Transylvanian Novel Rote Handschuhe
    • Abstract: Eginald Schlattner is the most productive fiction writer of the German diaspora of East Central Europe. Over the past two decades, he has distinguished himself as the author of three highly successful novels--Der geköpfte Hahn, 1998; Rote Handschuhe, 2001; and Das Klavier im Nebel, 2005. All focus on the recent history of the Transylvanian Germans, popularly referred to as Saxons. At this writing they have not been translated into English.1 Schlattner’s volumes are literary chronicles of the decline of the German-speaking culture in Romania. Stefanie Bolzen notes that they are written in a style filled with archaic charm. They employ vivid, expressive and powerful vocabulary. Moreover, Schlattner’s work ... Read More

  • Can David Wagoner, Poet of Nature and the Environment, Qualify as
           Eco-poet'
    • Abstract: In the sixty-odd years following publication of his first collection of poems, David Wagoner has produced nearly twenty books of poetry. He served as a chancellor of the American Academy of Poets for more than twenty years, edited the influential magazine Poetry Northwest for thirty-six years, and taught at the University of Washington for more than fifty years. Over those decades, Wagoner also turned out ten novels, a novella, a dozen solid short stories, numerous essays, and two plays. With the exception of W.S. Merwin, no poet of stature can be said to have matched Wagoner for sheer volume and variety, but he will most likely be remembered for his range of voices as a poet of nature and the natural world. ...

  • Female Desire: Defiant Text and Intercultural Context in Works by D.H.
           Lawrence and Eileen Chang
    • Abstract: First written in 1926, but published posthumously in 1930, The Virgin and the Gipsy was deemed as “one of [D. H.] Lawrence’s finest things” by Frank R. Leavis (288). Eileen Chang’s (張愛玲) “Lust, Caution” (“Se, jie” 色,戒), written in the 1950s and published in 1978,1 achieved belated fame for the author as an unconventional espionage story set in 1940s Shanghai.2 For decades, it went unrecognized as a modern Chinese literary work due to its ironic twist on the nationalist narrative. Recognition at last resulted thanks to Ang Lee’s (李安) 2007 screen adaptation of the work. 3 Besides achieving a similar level of fame, these works feature a female character who withdraws from society to find personal expression ...

  • Milton on Film by Eric C. Brown (review)
    • Abstract: Reviews are published in alphabetical order according to the name of the author reviewed. Eric Brown, Milton scholar and professor of English at the University of Maine at Farmington, served two years as script consultant for Legendary Studios, advising Hollywood producer Vincent Newman on his film adaptation of Paradise Lost, a long-gestated project which had first been announced in 2005. Brown’s services came to a premature end on February 9, 2012, when the studio abruptly canceled the production two weeks before shooting was set to begin in Australia. Never had Milton’s epic been so close to the big screen. Standing by in Sydney had been a state-of-the-art CGI special effects studio with no ... Read More

  • Dreaming Forward: Latino Voices Enhance the Mosaic by Martha E. Casazza
           (review)
    • Abstract: In light of President Trump’s rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Martha E. Casazza’s Dreaming Forward is a timely collection of interviews and reflections underscoring the need to better understand how our nation succeeds, or fails to succeed, in serving our Latino community. While Casazza dedicates a number of chapters to immigrant students’ struggles and concerns about their uncertain documentation status, the book as a whole is a mosaic of stories that demonstrates how the achievements and disappointments of these individuals’ dreams impact the larger Latino population. In order for impactful legislation to benefit Latinos living in the United States, Casazza ... Read More

  • Introduction to Spanish/English Linguistics by Dee L. Eldredge and Liesder
           Mayea Rodríguez (review)
    • Abstract: The fourteen chapters of Eldredge and Mayea’s comparative linguistic study of Spanish and English can be divided into three parts: chapters 1 and 2 introduce the importance of linguistics and explain linguistic terms. The main body (chapters 3–9) begins with three chapters of syntax, reviewing sentence structure: NPs, VPs, PPs and CPs, and concludes with morphology. The remaining five chapters (Spelling, Dialectology, Philology, Other Spanish language rules, and Usage of linguistics in the classroom) serve as practical references rather than linguistics. It seems the authors have a different view on Mood. They present 5 moods in Spanish, including interrogative and emphatic. Mood is a how the ... Read More

  • Have I Got a Story for You: More Than a Century of Fiction from the
           Forward ed. by Ezra Glinter (review)
    • Abstract: The New York–based, Yiddish–Socialist Forverts printed its first issue 120 years ago. In the generations since that day in April 1897, what later became the Forward has evolved from a daily newspaper into, currently, monthly magazines and continually-updated websites in English and Yiddish. In Judaism, 120 years carries special significance. It was the length of time Noah’s generation was given to repent and reform before the Flood; it was Moses’s lifespan; and, traditionally speaking, it is the oldest age one should ever hope to reach. In other words, the 120-year mark is the ideal moment for an enduring Jewish institution to reflect on its history and trajectory. Enter Have I Got a Story for ... Read More

The series resembles the earlier Open Court Popular Culture and Philosophy series, which numbered 109 volumes as of The X-Files and Philosophy: The Truth is In Here in May 2017. Wiley/Blackwell got into the game with a Philosophy and Pop Culture series with 51 volumes with Alien and Philosophy: I Infest, Therefore I Am, also May 2017; and the University Press of Kentucky rolled out a Philosophy of Popular Culture series, recently listing 32 volumes on its website, e.g. The Philosophy of TV Noir and Tennis and Philosophy: What the Racket ...

    • Abstract: Mi vida entre canciones (My Life Among Songs) allows readers to immerse themselves in the life story of the most well-known chronicler of Spanish and Latin American singer-songwriters. The result is an inspiring book that encourages us to begin our own life among songs by including references to unfinished projects, books and music that we might further explore. While reading it, Spotify and Google would be good accompaniments in order to listen to the core songs such as Somniem, and to travel to Lucini’s lieux de mémoire like the street Las Novias or the notable concert hall Toldería. Readers will want to read closely and to consume the work at a slower pace for a deeper understanding of Lucini’s world. ... Read More

    • Abstract: Right from the start, Ellen Hartsfield’s book enthralls an entire generation of young students mesmerized by the world of Dragons and other marvelous, fairy-tale like creatures. As popular as this might sound, the book attracts youth without losing the academic rigor of second language education methodology. A clear explanation of the program and its pedagogy precedes the sixteen chapters and includes a guide for using accessible online resources from Quia and related links. Moreover, the author, a college professor with 15 years’ teaching experience, brings something different in this initial guided tour and explains not only what the learner will pursue, but also how to study and teach this method. No ... Read More

    • Abstract: At a time when the current, collective conscience of the United States has been confronted with rhetoric and ongoing challenges that create heavy emotional burdens, Scott Henkel offers insight into significant events and literatures that identify the power of witness and social activism amid strife, contention, tragedy, and division. His review and contextualization of past, key political actions in the Americas serve to theorize the radicle (not radical but root) potentials of direct democracy that people from different backgrounds drew upon during the nineteenth century in order to successfully alter governing, rule, and authority. Henkel carefully illustrates a literary history of the concept he calls ... Read More

    • Abstract: Letras hispánicas en la gran pantalla: De la literatura al cine is a one-of-a-kind textbook, written in Spanish, and aimed at a wide-ranging audience of advanced US undergraduate students, US high school students who are taking an IB or AP Spanish course, and university students in Latin America and Spain who study Hispanic literature and film. The goal is to make literature more accessible by dovetailing literary and filmic analysis. Instructors of Hispanic Studies know that literary texts offer a gateway to cultural, historic, and linguistic knowledge, which, consequently, often leads to understanding one’s self and world better. However, in our digital era, literary texts may sometimes present barriers to ... Read More

  • The Evolution of the Costumed Avenger: The 4,000-Year History of the
           Superhero by Jess Nevins (review)
    • Abstract: To be sure, Jess Nevins is not charting the evolution of superhero fashion. The book, otherwise attractively mounted and appointed, is devoid of color panels or illustrations apart from the cover. Instead, the author uses the term “Costumed Avenger” (13) as one side of a coiled helix. The other side is the “heroic mission” which necessarily “must be selfless (not performed for personal gain) and aimed at aiding the oppressed” (8). The superhero outfit or look is really a kind of foil to the heroic mission and reducible to “a full-fledged ‘pervert suit’ costume” (8). So indelible is this combination of suit and mission that we forget how much the outfit is the vestige of a disguise to elude capture. Nevins ... Read More

  • Flusspferd im Frauenbad by Jens Nielsen (review)
    • Abstract: This small but interesting publisher focuses on literary works that reflect spoken words, performances, and stage presentations from the contemporary Swiss literary scene. Flusspferd im Frauenbad comprises not short stories, despite the title of the series, but a collection of poems by Jens Nielsen (b. 1966 in Aarau) who has gained a public reputation with his dramatic pieces for the theater and with radio plays. Both the book title (Hippos in the Woman’s Bathroom) and the name of the publisher represent challenges. The publisher’s name is a surreal contortion of a proverbial statement: the healthy human mind. But the crucial letter ‘t’ is missing in the word “Menschenverstand,” so this now means instead: ...

    • Abstract: Can text provide a window' Can words beg deeper engagement with a world committed to “the assumed parallel between ‘eco’ and ‘natural’” (122)' In this work of fourth wave ecocriticism, Sarah Nolan says indeed, they can. But, she adds, one must imagine a space where the word natureculture exists. Her recently published Unnatural Ecopoetics: Unlikely Spaces in Contemporary Poetry moves readers quickly and directly into the experience of natureculture—a term taken from scholar Donna Haraway—the place where the worlds of nature and culture “implo[de],” building on “material ecocriticism’s proposed breakdown of recognizable boundaries between natural and human spaces, objects, thoughts, and agencies” (4). Using a ... Read More

  • Sin lengua, deslenguado by Gustavo Pérez Firmat (review)
    • Abstract: The sophisticated black covers of Spain’s Cátedra editions always convey a classy and classical message. Further enhanced with Humberto Calzada’s watery painting, The Collapse of an Island, with its layers of placid aquamarine ocean water rising and engulfing the interior of a stately, but abandoned, stain-glass windowed and cathedral-ceilinged Cuban mansion, Sin lengua, deslenguado anthologizes one of the most influential 1.5 generation Cuban exiles to lift anchor when his island, and his world, collapsed. Now, almost sixty years after landing on U.S. shores and setting up a lifelong residence, Pérez Firmat has gathered selected poetry and poetic prose essays into a volume whose whole is greater than the ...

  • Screening Minors in Latin America Cinema ed. by Carolina Rocha, Georgia
           Seminet (review)
    • Abstract: Distinct from their first volume on youth in cinema, Representing History, Class, and Gender in Spain and Latin America: Children and Adolescents in Film, in this new book Carolina Rocha and Georgia Seminet narrow the scope to Latin America, including Brazil, and compile an anthology of varied critical approaches and research findings. Presented across four thematic sections are twelve chapters written in English that treat films spanning from 1976 to 2013. The theory which binds the compendium of articles is the youth protagonist’s construction of subjectivity and agency on screen. While children and adolescents are frequently examined as “others” in film, drawing on Ann E. Kaplan, Robyn McCallum ... Read More

  • Krausism and the Spanish Avant-garde: The Impact of Philosophy on National
           Culture by Christian Rubio (review)
    • Abstract: The nineteenth century and the early decades of the twentieth was a time of socio-political upheaval in Spain. The Iberian nation endured fundamental changes in its political landscape. The progressive loss of its empire, together with the internal political problems between liberal and conservative parties, shook Spanish national identity. Intellectuals and pundits acknowledged the ideological stagnation of society and were eager to find an ideological solution that would heal this wound: this solution was Krausism. Karl Christian Krause is a German philosopher born in Eisenberg in 1781. Krausism “carried great significance” in Europe and Spain in the nineteenth century (xvii). During this time ... Read More

  • The Portuguese-Speaking Diaspora: Seven Centuries of Literature and Arts
           by Darlene J. Sadlier (review)
    • Abstract: In The Portuguese-Speaking Diaspora: Seven Centuries of Literature and Arts, Darlene J. Sadlier makes a concerted effort to cover seven centuries and several continents of literary and artistic works from the Lusophone diaspora. This richly documented study provides an account of topics ranging from the Portuguese imperial project, the diaspora, race in Africa, Casa dos Estudantes do Império, Lusotropicalism, and Africa in the global economy. Sadlier compares and contrasts different perspectives on the imperial enterprise. Through a close analysis of a wide range of literary texts, archival documents and the works of local artisans, she discusses the impact of the Portuguese presence in Africa. ... Read More

  • The Merchant of Havana: The Jew in the Cuban Abolitionist Archive by
           Stephen Silverstein (review)
    • Abstract: In The Merchant of Havana, Stephen Silverstein studies the prevalence of “Jewishness” in nineteenth-century Cuban “abolitionist” writings that treat the Cuban identity crisis and socio-economic reconfiguration. Drawing on texts of different genres and using an informed historical review as context for his argument, he uncovers the different ways that Cuban texts of the period refer to the “notional,” “figurative” or “metaphorical” Jew to represent foreigners who are seen as a threat to Cubans’ socio-economic condition and their identities. Thus, the continental Spanish and English, to name the most significant, are associated with the Jews, who continued to be stereotyped in the nineteenth century and were ... Read More

  • Dictatorships in the Hispanic World. Trasatlantic and Transnational
           Perspectives ed. by Patricia L. Swier, Julia Riordan-Goncalves (review)
    • Abstract: This volume collects twelve articles that address the direct or indirect influence of totalitarian political systems on the cultural production of His-panic nations. Different artistic and literary disciplines are included: visual arts, novel, poetry, film and even puppet theater. The book denounces many forms of damage inflicted by dictatorships in Hispanic societies, including assassination, torture, gender violence, censorship and political corruption. This multilayered approach shows the wide cultural variety existing in the Hispanic world and demonstrates the inexhaustible power of resistance of art and literature against totalitarianism. This wide range of focus comes with a price. ... Read More

  • The Foreign Language Appropriation Conundrum: Micro Realities & Macro
           Dynamics by Thomas Szende (review)
    • Abstract: In The Foreign Language Appropriation Conundrum, Thomas Szende addresses critical issues of foreign- and second-language teaching in our globalized world of the twenty-first century. Clearly passionate about language teaching, he takes care to position concerns about classroom practices and the increasing reliance on technology (called “micro realities”) in relation to the myriad external cultural, political, and institutional forces (“macro dynamics”) that influence attitudes toward language learning. At a time when the legitimacy of foreign languages as an academic endeavor in the United States is being challenged and dismissed as mere “skill building” by those who make critical decisions regarding core ...

  • Of Women Borne: A Literary Ethics of Suffering by Cynthia R. Wallace
           (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Cynthia Wallace’s Of Women Borne: A Literary Ethics of Suffering cleverly announces her ambitious attempt to re-envision poet and feminist Adrienne Rich’s 1976 work Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Intuition. A “provocative” source for the exploration of the relationship between literature and ethics, Rich’s work and her personal battle to bring attention to the indivisibility of art and moral behavior and the reality of women’s experience and suffering inspire Wallace’s authorial stance (including the interweaving of her own story of suffering into the text) and anticipate her concerns with ethical reading practice. The expansion of Rich’s title from “woman” to “women” and from the ... Read More

  • Revelation: A Thriller by Carter Wilson (review)
    • Abstract: Held captive in conditions beyond horrific, Harden finds a typewriter along with a stack of blank paper. The words “Tell me a Story” signal the chilling beginning to his predicament. Under normal conditions, being faced with a writing deadline is enough to freeze many in their tracks, yet when faced with said deadline, there is still the option to stall, to let life get in the way, to convince oneself of the need for more incubation time, more time to let the subconscious work out the details. However, this is not the case for Harden; there is no deadline extension available for him. His survival depends not only on his ability to write on command, but also on his ability to write what his captor wants to ... Read More

  • The Practicality of an Impractical Education
    • Abstract: Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium, reminds us that “Art and Science have defined civilization since the beginning of time.” Biologist and Naturalist, Edward O. Wilson’s observation enfolds an explanation: “Although the two great branches of learning, Science and the Humanities, are radically different in the way they describe our species, they have risen from the same wellspring of creative thought.” The current fascination with the STEM disciplines is to be expected in a technological and digital age, but supporting STEM at the expense of the Liberal Arts and Humanities ignores half of human thought. While I embrace the idea that study in the ... Read More
