Parody, the Avant-garde, and the Poetics of Subversion in Oliverio Girondo

Publisher : Peter Lang
Release Date :
ISBN : 9780820478975
Pages : 172 pages
Rating Book: 4.7/5 (478 users)

Download or read book Parody, the Avant-garde, and the Poetics of Subversion in Oliverio Girondo written by Patricia M. Montilla and published by Peter Lang. This book was released on 2007 with total page 172 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Oliverio Girondo is a leading figure of the Spanish American avant-garde. Parody, the Avant-Garde, and the Poetics of Subversion in Oliverio Girondo examines the presence and function of parody in Girondo's early poetry and drawings. It illustrates how, through the subversion of both conventional and vanguard poetics, these texts discredit the values imposed upon artistic production by institutionalized models and social codes. This book assesses the extent to which Girondo followed the theories outlined in his critical writings and considers how his works fit into the general trajectory of the historical avant-garde and contemporary Spanish American literature.

Forest Structure, Function and Dynamics in Western Amazonia

Publisher : John Wiley & Sons
Release Date :
ISBN : 1119090695
Pages : 224 pages
Rating Book: 4.1/5 (119 users)

Download or read book Forest Structure, Function and Dynamics in Western Amazonia written by Randall W. Myster and published by John Wiley & Sons. This book was released on 2017-01-03 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Amazon Basin contains the largest and most diverse tropical rainforest in the world. Besides the Andes and the Atlantic Ocean, the rainforest is bounded to the north by the Guiana crystalline shield and to the south by the Brazilian crystalline shield, marked at their edges by cataracts in the rivers and often dominated by grasslands. This book is motivated not just by the Amazon's scientific interest but also by its role in many ecosystem functions critical to life on Earth. These ecosystems are characterized both by their complexity and their interactive, higher-order linkages among both abiotic and biotic components.Within Amazonia, the Western Amazon (west of 65° latitude) is the most pristine and, perhaps, the most complex within the Amazon Basin. This Western Amazon may be broadly divided into non-flooded forests (e.g. terra firme, white sand, palm) and forests flooded with white water (generally referred to as várzea) and with black water (generally referred to as igapó). Here, for the first time, is a book devoted entirely to Western Amazonia, containing chapters by scientists at the forefront of their own areas of expertise. It should be a valuable resource for all future researchers and scholars who venture into Western Amazonia, as it continues to be one of the most beautiful, mysterious, remote and important ecosystems on Earth.

The Guaraní under Spanish Rule in the Río de la Plata

Publisher : Stanford University Press
Release Date :
ISBN : 9780804754958
Pages : 308 pages
Rating Book: 4.5/5 (754 users)

Download or read book The Guaraní under Spanish Rule in the Río de la Plata written by Barbara Anne Ganson and published by Stanford University Press. This book was released on 2005-11-22 with total page 308 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This ethnographic study is a revisionist view of the most significant and widely known mission system in Latin America—that of the Jesuit missions to the Guaraní Indians, who inhabited the border regions of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil. It traces in detail the process of Indian adaptation to Spanish colonialism from the sixteenth through the early nineteenth centuries. The book demonstrates conclusively that the Guaraní were as instrumental in determining their destinies as were the Catholic Church and Spanish bureaucrats. They were neither passive victims of Spanish colonialism nor innocent “children” of the jungle, but important actors who shaped fundamentally the history of the Río de la Plata region. The Guaraní responded to European contact according to the dynamics of their own culture, their individual interests and experiences, and the changing political, economic, and social realities of the late Bourbon period.
