Download E-books Marxismo y crítica literaria PDF

By Terry Eagleton

Este libro fue publicado por primera vez en 1976, en plena transformación de los angeles historia occidental. Aunque en ese momento no se sabía, estaba por terminar una period de radicalismo político para darle paso a un período reaccionario.
Marxismo y crítica literaria surgió del fermento de principles revolucionarias que se extendió desde fines de los angeles década del sesenta hasta mediados de los setenta. A los pocos años de su publicación, el clima cultural del que este libro extrajo su fuerza unique se había alterado drásticamente. En los estudios literarios y culturales, durante los años ochenta, los angeles teoría literaria seguía en alza, pero el marxismo fue progresivamente relegado por el feminismo, el posestructuralismo y, un poco más tarde, el posmodernismo. ¿El interés de este estudio es entonces puramente histórico? No. En palabras de Fermín A. Rodríguez, autor del prefacio que introduce esta nueva traducción: En efecto, a pesar de todas las dificultades políticas, "esa teoría cultural de izquierda nunca se fue del todo", tal como afirma el propio Eagleton en el prólogo que escribió especialmente para esta edición. los angeles aparición de este libro es un grato signo de su presencia persistente y habla de l. a. necesidad real, frente a l. a. drawback del capitalismo international, de los angeles urgente necesidad de oponer principles. Marxismo y crítica literaria es una excelente propuesta para empezar a pensar. Lo que vuelve entonces con Marxismo y crítica literaria no es tanto l. a. nostalgia por una crítica política que se percibía a sí misma como revolucionaria, sino más bien los angeles oportunidad de volver a empezar desde el principio, de repetir un comienzo, cuando l. a. promesa de cambio estaba todavía abierta.

By Italo Svevo

Dans cette conférence donnée en 1927, Italo Svevo se fait tant analyste affuté que portraitiste passionné. De son amitié avec James Joyce, rencontré à Trieste en 1906, l'Italien confie los angeles genèse : ignoré par l. a. critique et en manque de lecteurs, il abandonne l'écriture et entre dans los angeles fabrique de vernis de son beau-père. Pour arpenter l'Europe en tant que advertisement, il se voit obligé de suivre des cours d'anglais à l'École Berlitz de l. a. ville, où James Joyce, de vingt ans son cadet, enseigne. De là naît une amitié, une "affinité élective" qui se traduit par l'échange d'ouvrages, de conseils et des encouragements mutuels. Joyce s'avérera d'ailleurs être los angeles clé de voûte du rayonnement européen de l'œuvre de Svevo.

Cette conférence constitue une voie d’accès originale à l'univers fascinant de l'auteur de Finnegans Wake. L'approche biographique est complétée par une interprétation brillante de Ulysse. Au fil d'une examine méticuleuse et critique de l'ouvrage, Svevo entend mettre au jour des clefs de lecture. L'une d'elle serait à trouver du côté de Stephen Dedalus, personnage aux multiples facettes, qui incarne à ses yeux l'alter ego de l'écrivain irlandais. Celui qui aurait inspiré Léopold Bloom, le héros significant du chef d'œuvre, nous livre ici une poétique inspirée et inspirante de los angeles vie et de l'œuvre de Joyce.
