♥ Book Title : José Emilio Pacheco and the Poets of the Shadows
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Jose Emilio Pacheco (1939- ) is Mexico's foremost living poet, and a major figure in contemporary Latin American poetry. Jose Emilio Pacheco and the Poets of the Shadows examines the dynamic of literary influence and the question of literary origins in Pacheco's first six books of poetry (1960s to mid-1980s). Ronald J. Friis appropriates Bloom's theory of poetic influence to investigate how Pacheco deploys literary allusions and intertextual references as a means of decentering the traditional centrality of the figure of the author. The poets of the shadows to which the title refers include Pacheco's precursors from prior generations of Mexican and Latin American literature, particularly Jorge Luis Borges, Alfonso Reyes, and Octavio Paz."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

♥ Book Title : Mexican Travel Writing
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book is a detailed study of salient examples of Mexican travel writing from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. While scholars have often explored the close relationship between European or North American travel writing and the discourse of imperialism, little has been written on how postcolonial subjects might relate to the genre. This study first traces the development of a travel-writing tradition based closely on European imperialist models in mid-nineteenth-century Mexico. It then goes on to analyse how the narrative techniques of postmodernism and the political agenda of postcolonialism might combine to help challenge the genre's imperialist tendencies in late twentieth-century works of travel writing, focusing in particular on works by writers Juan Villoro, Hector Perea and Fernando Solana Olivares.""Article| Thea Pitman| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Responding to Crisis in Contemporary Mexico
☯ Full Synopsis : "Regarded as among modern MexicoÕs foremost creative writers, Octavio Paz, Carlos Fuentes, Carlos Monsiv‡is, and Elena Poniatowska are also esteemed as analyzers of society, critics of public officials, and both molders and mirrors of public opinion. This book offers a reading of Mexican current affairs from 1968 to 1995 through a comparative study of these four writersÕ political work. In hundreds of articles, essays, and comments published in the Mexican pressÑExcŽlsior, La Cultura en MŽxico, La Jornada, Proceso, and many other publicationsÑthese writers tackled current affairs as events unfolded. Yet the lack of detailed examination of their contributions in the press has left a gap in our understanding of their vital role in raising awareness of national concerns as they were happening. Claire Brewster has mined direct quotations from a host of publications to illustrate the techniques that they used in combating government and editorial restraints. Brewster first addresses the Student Movement of 1968Ñthe violent suppression of which was a watershed in the relationship between the Mexican government and peopleÑand illustrates the ways in which the student crisis affected the writersÕ relationships with presidents Luis Echeverr’a Alvarez and JosŽ L—pez Portillo. She next considers the profound social and political repercussions of the 1985 earthquake as described by Poniatowska and Monsiv‡is and the consequent emergence of Mexican civil society. She then outlines PazÕs and Monsiv‡isÕs vociferous responses to the 1988 presidential election campaigns and their highly contentious result, and lastly she examines the Chiapas rebellion from January to July 1994. The eloquent Zapatista spokesman, Subcomandante Marcos, challenged Mexican writers to a duel of words, and Brewster analyzes the ways in which the four writers took up the gauntletÑand in so doing reveals the development of their political thoughts and their relationships with the Mexican people and the federal government. The work of these four authors charts an important historical era, and a close examination of their essays reveals their maturation as writers and provides an understanding of the development of Mexican society. By bringing their opinions and attitudes to light, Brewster unearths a rich lode of insight into the inner workings of Mexican intellectuals and invites observers of contemporary Mexico to reconsider their role in reflecting social change."Article| Claire Brewster| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Intellectuals and the State in Twentieth-Century Mexico
☯ Full Synopsis : "In developing countries, the extent to which intellectuals disengage themselves in state activities has widespread consequences for the social, political, and economic development of those societies. Roderic Camps’ examination of intellectuals in Mexico is the first study of a Latin American country to detail the structure of intellectual life, rather than merely considering intellectual ideas. Camp has used original sources, including extensive interviews, to provide new data about the evolution of leading Mexican intellectuals and their relationship to politics and politicians since 1920."Article| Roderic Ai Camp| Statement ..."
