top_DOWNLOADLaura Chinchilla – CARTOGRAFÍAS PARANOICAS Espacio y violencia en la producción cultural hondureña reciente

Abstract: «Paranoid Cartographies. Space and Violence in Recent Cultural Production from Honduras». The Central American crime novel has been studied in the context of the region’s civil wars and armed conflicts. These studies point to the climate of paranoia and violence that governs life in these countries. Honduran narratives of crime still remain to be studied, however. This essay focuses on recent Honduran cultural production around crime to define some traits in the narrative treatment of paranoia. The novels Caribe Cocaine and La mitad roja del puente by Ernesto Bondy and art by Alma Leiva are analyzed to argue that these texts present an engagement with paranoia through space. These two artists also stage two different ways of thinking through the affects generated by violence.

Key words: Crime fiction – Paranoia – Art – Honduras.

top_DOWNLOADSusanna Nanni – CUERPO Y MEMORIA ¿Quién puede borrar las huellas?

Abstract: «Body and Memory. ¿Quién puede borrar las huellas?». In July 2003 the Guatemalan artist and writer Regina José Galindo (1974) realized the performance ¿Quién puede borrar las huellas?, walking barefoot for almost an hour from a palace of power to another in Guatemala City, tracing a path of human blood footprints in memory of the victims of the armed conflict occurred in her country, and in rejection of the presidential nomination of the former dictator Efraín Ríos Montt. The spectators, ordinary citizens, through their silence, fear, anger, or astonishment, become actors who embody the lack of historical memory, the impotence and passivity in the face of institutional violence. The artist’s body – bearer of massacred identities – becomes a support for the Guatemalans’ collective identity, and a space of struggle against the oblivion and the State violence. This essay attempts to explore the Galindo’s performance and its symbols (footprints, blood, silence), focusing on the materialization of memory and the visibility of oblivion.

Key words: Body – Violence – Memory/Oblivion – Presence/Absence.

top_DOWNLOADGreg Schelonka – LOS PELIGROS DE MIRAR. Detectives vigilados en «Insensatez»,
«El material humano» y «Pasada de cuentas»

Abstract: «The Dangers of Looking. Detectives Kept Under Surveillance in Senselessness, El material humano, and Pasada de cuentas». This article explores the visuality associated with the state and state-like actors and the counter visuality that writers enact in the Central American context. The novels Senselessness by Horacio Castellanos Moya, El material humano by Rodrigo Rey Rosa, and Pasada de cuentas by Manuel Martínez explore the tensions between the power of visuality and that of counter visuality in the contemporary period of recently democratized societies that, as in the case of Martínez, see an increase in drug trafficking, and the actions of democratic citizens who investigate the truth in their countries. This tension helps explain why Central American detective characters regularly fail.

Key words: Castellanos Moya – Rey Rosa – Manuel Martínez – Crime fiction – Visuality.

top_DOWNLOADGünther Schmigalle – RUBÉN DARÍO, CAMILLE AYMARD Y «LA RENAISSANCE LATINE»

Abstract: «Rubén Darío, Camille Aymard and La Renaissance Latine». From 1900 on, Rubén Darío lived in Paris, struggling to find a place for himself in the French intellectual landscape. When Édouard Reyer put him in touch with the recently founded journal La Renaissance Latine, the poet published in its pages a short but important analysis of the future of the Latin peoples of America. But difficulties soon arose, which we describe in this article. In the end the best result of La Renaissance Latine episode was Darío’s friendship with a young and dynamic French lawyer, Camille Aymard.

Key Words: Rubén Darío – Camille Aymard – La Renaissance Latine.

top_DOWNLOADNicasio Urbina – EPISTOLA CATÓLICA A RAFAEL ARÉVALO MARTÍNEZ DE AZARÍAS H. PALLAIS

Abstract: «Epístola católica a Rafael Arévalo Martínez by Azarías H. Pallais». This article studies the book by Father Azarías H. Pallais, Epístola católica a Rafael Arévalo Martínez (1947), an excellent book of poems that has not received any critical attention. In this article I show that Father Pallais wanted to send a message to the writers and readers of the time to stay in the way of the good Catholic, choosing good readings, following good examples, maintaining their ethics of justice and favoring the poor and those in need.

Key words: Nicaraguan poetry – Catholicism – Spanish American poetry – European art.

top_DOWNLOADDE LA AMISTAD. UNA REFLEXIÓN SOBRE RUBÉN DARÍO Y RUFINO BLANCO-FOMBONA, Maguy Blancofombona

Abstract: About Friendship. Una Reflexión sobre Rubén Darío y Rufino Blanco-Fombona. Those who were not aware of the deep friendship that flourished in Paris in the early twentieth century between Ruben Darío and Rufino Blanco-Fombona, ended up discrediting and defaming it. I should like to undertake this investigation on the basis of a thorough reflection on the philosophical meaning of friendship throughout history, from the Greeks to the present, as well as the themes of friendship in exile and friendship as related to tragedy, so as to thwart the advancement of the spurious idea regarding Blanco-Fombona’s and Darío’s friendship. I will ground my research on the scant surviving correspondence and Journals of the Venezuelan writer, some articles published in the newspaper El Sol, one of the subtitles of Modernism and modernist poets dedicated Ruben Darío, and, lastly, on the preface written by the Nicaraguan writer to Pequeña ópera lírica. My purpose is to show that a rash reaction to a banal fact must not destroy the depth of truthfulness as for decades some would have us believe.

Key words: Friendship – Rubén Darío – Rufino Blanco-Fombona

top_DOWNLOADLA HUELLA DE LAS PALABRAS FURTIVASMaría Esther Castillo G.

Abstract: The Trace of Furtive Words. An Approach to the Storybook «Grieta de fatiga» by Fabio Morábito. Fabio Morábito is a contemporary philosopher; his narrative material presents an elevated scriptural awareness in prose and poetry, when revealing the claim of a voice that structures both instances with a distinct style. Every story is confronted with a reflection of the poetic material, centered within a rhythm perceived as a harmonic game of the voices which surpass the ‘identity line’ of the mother tongue. Morábito, as a writer who masters Italian and Spanish, proves to us that it is the literary language which propitates the identifying traits that interest him, without demeaning the linguistic exclusivity; this privilege is evidenced en the meta-linguistic processes that form a part of the fables. The sum of fables in Grieta de fatiga, is a demonstration of the literary talent with which we wish to invite more readers.

Keywords: Morábito – Everyday – Meta-language – Perception – Focalization.

top_DOWNLOADENTRE LA FICCIÓN Y LA HISTORIA, Ana Yolanda Contreras

Abstract: «Between fiction and history: Destroying the Myth of the Liberal Government of Justo Rufino Barrios in the novel El sueño de los justos». The aim of this article is to analyze how Spanish-Guatemalan writer Francisco Pérez de Antón’s historic novel, El sueño de los justos (2008) questions and demystifies General Justo Rufino Barrios’ liberal government, as well as his political leadership. The article primarily focuses on how certain aspects of Barrios’ glorious and heroic memory have been inculcated in the average Guatemalan’s mind. Furthermore, the article explores how this ‘glorious and heroic memory’ is problematized throughout the novel by questioning the political actions of General Barrios, who during his administration justified and allowed extensive abuses on the indigenous population, committing human rights violations, and accepting the establishment of a corrupt system in Guatemala.

Key words: Historic novel – Memory – Demystifying – Indigenous exploitation – Human rights violations – Corruption.

top_DOWNLOADANA ISTARÚ: LA VOZ VOLCÁNICA, Ramón Pérez Parejo

Abstract: Ana Istarú: Volcanic Voice. Interview. In the context of a research grant about contemporary Latin American poetry written by women, awarded by the AUIP (Iberoamerican University Assotiation of Postgraduate), the Costa Rican poet, playwright, writer and actress Ana Istarú was interviewed. In the course of this conversation, Ana Istarú talks about the keys to her training and her precocity as a poet, as well as her most influential readings.

In the poetic field, she describes the keys to her poetry, both at an erotic and socially committed level, that in her opinion are the same thing. Next, her career as a poet is reviewed through comments on her most important books, especially La estación de fiebre and Verbo madre.

top_DOWNLOADPENSAR LAS POLÍTICAS Y ESTÉTICAS DE LA MODERNIDAD EN CENTROAMÉRICA, Palabras liminares

top_DOWNLOADEL TEATRO CENTROAMERICANO EN LOS DEBATES SOCIALES Y ESTÉTICOS DE LA MODERNIDADDante Barrientos Tecun

Abstract: The Central American Theater in the Social and Aesthetic Debates of the Modernity. During his Parisian experience (1924-1933), Miguel Angel Asturias wrote one of the pioneering theoretical essays on the way to be undertaken by the Latin American theater: “Reflexiones sobre la posibilidad de un teatro americano de inspiración indigena” (1930). In that essay, he proposed strategies to articulate the American Indian cultural roots and modernity in American theatricality. Works such as Rayito de Estrella or Kukulkan, serpiente-envuelta-en-plumas are paradigmatic examples of his conceptions. In the first half of the twentieth century other proposals have been performed (Carlos Solórzano, Manuel Galich, Miguel Marsicovétere y Duran, Rogelio Sinan, the theater of the Vanguard Movement in Nicaragua), seeking ways to debate and question the authoritarian schemes and the aesthetic canons. In this paper we analyze some of these dramatic proposals and their meanings that have emerged in the first half of the twentieth century, as scenic areas of discussion of modernity.

Key Words: Theater – Central America- Authoritarianism – Modernity – Vanguard.

top_DOWNLOADETIQUETAS LITERARIAS Y CÁNONES DISTORSIONADOS, Sara Crini

Abstract: Literary labels and distorted canons. Latin American literature in Italy between stereotypes and misguided views. The aim of this study is to analyse some peritexts that have been used in the editorial and cultural sphere to describe Latin American books and presenting them to the Italian public. At the same time, we will analyse the interpretative mechanisms that the Italian intellectuals reserved to the works of “realismo magico”, to observe the different dynamics of interpretation that the term (in use in Italy via the work of Massimo Bontempelli) triggered at the moment of interpreting and reading the literary production of an entire subcontinent.

Key words: Centro American Literature – Reception theory – Translation – Literature – Market.

top_DOWNLOADNOTAS PARA UNA RELECTURA DE LA NOVELISTICA DE MARIO MONTEFORTE TOLEDO, Emiliano Coello Gutiérrez

Abstract: Notes for a re-reading of Mario Monteforte Toledo’s novels. The aim of this article is to highlight the pioneering aspects of the novels by the Guatemalan author Mario Monteforte Toledo. In order to do that, it takes some distance from the critical tradition that has read his works from the perspective of regionalism or of social realism, and suggests to study them as ‘intellectual fictions’. Indeed, Monteforte’s novels put into question the optimism typical with the forties and fifties of last century, when in Latin America and thus, in Guatemala, civilizing projects were unquestionable. Monteforte works show a critical and sceptic attitude towards some of the totems of modern culture (bourgeois revolution, mingling of different races, progress, blind faith in Marxist), and this skepticism anticipates contemporary thinking. Moreover, the narrative of Monteforte Toledo portrays the return from enlightened collectivism to the individual, and this is interesting because it anticipates a problem that will be taken up, several decades later, by Central American postwar novelists.

Key Words: Mario Monteforte Toledo – Intellectual – Modernity – Critics – Individual.

top_DOWNLOADLOS FRANCO-CENTROAMERICANOS Y LA PRIMERA GUERRA MUNDIAL, Sergio Coto-Rivel

Abstract: The Franco-Central Americans and the First World War. Notes on Central American presence on the European conflict. The main objective of this article is to analyze the engagement of the Franco-Central Americans after the general calling made by the French Government on August 2nd, 1914 following France’s declaration of war. This calling was widely broadcasted by the Central American press, however, our interest lies in the registers kept by the Consulate General of France in Central America, which reveal to us the alternatives that those children and grand-children of French expatriates, despite their frequent ignorance of their elders’ language or land, had: either enlist straight away or be declared ‘disobedient’ – a very serious offence in wartime. In this year of celebration of the First World War centenary, we intend to study the Central American presence in Europe, not only its heroes, but also all those who did not want to turn themselves in to the slaughter of the trenches.

Keywords: First World War – Central America – Disobedience – French army – Franco- Central Americans – French immigration.

top_DOWNLOADLOCALISMOS Y COSMOPOLITISMOS EN LA PELICULA «DISTANCIA» DE SERGIO RAMIREZ, Dante Liano

Astract: Localism and Cosmopolitanism in the Film «Distancia» by Sergio Ramirez. The film “Distancia” (2010) by Guatemalan director Sergio Ramirez is based on real facts occurred in recent years. During the 80’s, in Guatemala a genocide was perpetrated against the indigenous population. This caused the death of 200,000 people, the leak to Mexico of more than 50,000 Mayan and a little-known phenomenon: the exodus to the mountains of one million people, wich received the name of CPR (Communities of Population in Resistance). The film tells a story derived from such escape. The article analyzes the film, an through that analysis tries to show how geographic distance became a symbolic distance, metaphor of distance between the different ethnic groups of Guatemala.

Key Words: Guatemala – “Distancia” – Sergio Ramirez – Genocidio – CPR – Symbolic distance.

Abstract: Translation Choices between Rhythm and Functionality. Italian Translation of «Men ofMaize» by M.À. Asturias. From a critical perspective of ‘Translation Studies’, this work discusses some aspects of the Italian translation of the novel Men of Maize by Miguel Angel Asturias in order to reconstruct strategies and decisions taken in the process of translation, assuming that the activity of translation is a functional interpretation of the different linguistic and cultural elements present in the source text through which it is possible reaching a global representation of literary creation.

top_DOWNLOAD ICONOGRAFIA FEMENINA EN EL ARTE Y EL CINE Y SU APROPIACIÓN EN LA OBRA DE LUIS DE LIÓN, Tania Pleitez Vela

Astract: Female Iconography in Art and Cinema and its Appropriation in the Work of Luis de Lión. The article analyzes two texts of the Guatemalan writer Luis de Lion considering the configuration of the female archetypes present in these texts as well as their links with European traditions and cultural discourses, as they appear in two key works of the twentieth century cinematography. The cultural conflict alluded by the texts of Luis de Lion can be read, at the same time, as an innovative proposal and a transgressive representation of the Guatemalan historical conflict that takes into account not only public space and history, but also private space, one where ladinización has left a violated emotional architecture.

Key Words: Luis de Lión – Femininity – Masculinity – Image – Cultural conflict – Violence

top_DOWNLOAD Michela Craveri, Cruces, cuerpos y comida en la representatión del espacio ritual maya

Abstract: Crosses, Bodies and Food in the Representation of the Mayan Ritual Space. This paper is about the symbolism of the cross in the Mayan world, from the plastic manifestations of the pre-Hispanic era to modern syncretic significance. Soon associated with the Christian cross by the first European conquers, the recurrence of the cross in the Mayan cultural universe demonstrates its importance and role in the organization of ritual space. From the foliate crosses wich mark the center of the universe, even the green crosses dressed with huiples and adorned by flowers, this symbol represents the intersection of possibilities and the center of human energy. The cross allows communication between different dimensions and is a ritual space sign. For this reason, the objects in Maya ritual tables follow a quadripartite arrangement of space and mark the cosmic orientation. I will examine the multiple meanings of the Mayan cross, the values inherited from pre-Hispanic past and modern syncretic conceptions.
Key words: Mayan cross – Symbolism of the cross – The Mayan ritual space – Syncretism in Mayan culture.

Riassunto: Tradurre i Raros di R. Darío, raccolta di saggi che ha giocato un ruolo di centralità nel processo di importazione in America Latina del simbolismo, ha comportato un lavoro rigoroso e approfondito di ricostruzione dell’universo di letture e riferimenti che soggiacciono alle sagaci e colte chiose dell’autore. Il presente articolo intende mettere a fuoco i punti nodali di quel processo mostrando quanto, e in che modo, le indagini e gli affondi nell’universo culturale dariano funzionali alla traduzione abbiano contribuito a comprendere le forme e i modi di quell’importazione.
Parole chiave: R. Darío – Los raros – Simbolismo – Traduzione – Studio culturale.
top_DOWNLOAD Gloriantonia Henríquez, Amor y erotismo en los «sonetos de uso doméstico» de José Coronel Urtecho
Abstract: Love and Eroticism in the «Sonetos de uso doméstico» by José Coronel Urtecho. The Sonetos de uso doméstico by the Nicaraguan poet José Coronel Urtecho, which is enshrined this article, is a particular poetic exercise within the set of his poetry and in the context of literary trends of his time, inclined rather to the shapes of the vanguards. The aim of this study is to provide some lights from an hermeneutic perspective on the aesthetics and meaning of the text, open to the movements that come and go from the interior and exterior space into a structure of horizon, whose notion serves as a pivot and from which also we investigate the poetic motivations of love and eroticism; for what we followed Octavio Paz proposals on the topic. From this double perspective, we seek to identify the classic structure of the texts and its referential wealth in order to show that they form a polyphonic display that is extraordinary in their time and context.
Key words: «Structure of Horizon» – Love – Eroticism – Classical Sonnets.

top_DOWNLOAD Emanuela Jossa, De la “Audiencia de los confines” a la ‘audiencia de los márgenes’. El teatro de la memoria de Jorgelina Cerritos

Abstract: From the “audiencia de los confines” to the ‘audiencia de los márgenes’. The Theatre of the Memory of Jorgelina Cerritos. The present work offers an analysis of the play La audiencia de los confines. Primer ensayo sobre la memoria (staged and published in 2013) by Salvadorian playwright Jorgelina Cerritos. As the subtitle suggests, the play is the first part of a trilogy which focuses on the reclamation of historical as well as individual memory. In this first “attempt”, Cerritos stages History, Memory and Truth, whose articulation appears to be the necessary path for building a renewed space for cohabitation and sharing. Reclaiming memory thus acquires ethical implications, as argued by Paul Ricoeur, whose elaborations on history, memory and recognition provide the theoretical framework for this paper. Moreover, my analysis will engage with the theatrical dimension of the play, focusing on the written text, with its dialogues and stage directions, as well as on its staging. As the fractures and continuities between the text and its performance trigger a radical change in its reception, I will also analyze the reader and the audience’s aesthetic experience, considering it as a dynamic process.
Key words: Jorgelina Cerritos – Salvadorian literature – Theatre – Memory

top_DOWNLOAD Edson Steven Guáqueta Rocha, «La guaracha del Macho Camacho» en la encrucijada de la literatura, la cultura de masas y el consumo

Abstract: Macho Camacho’s Beat in the Crossroads of Literature, Media Culture and Consumption. To approach today to a work like Macho Camacho’s Beat (1976) of the writer Luis Rafael Sánchez (1936) from the field of Latinoamerican cultural studies leads to the reinterpretation of this novel as an specific moment of the implantation in Puerto Rico of global consumer culture. The literary work in general, that for Raymond Williams is assimilated, from the rise of bourgeoisie to the power – and, in consequence, of its values’ system – with determinated characteristics, comes into a scope of dialogue, negotiation and dispute with media culture, that is tightly bonded to the economic preponderance of media. The approximations and rejects of this media culture are relationated with cultural and economic cannibalism in the measure that we are, fundamentally, what we consume. The undertaken and developped satire of consumption without limits in this novel aims that the author postulates this society as failed or unviable – remember here the traffic jam symbol – if it abandons itself to the market and to the hegemonic powers of international capitalism and political demagoguery.
Key words: Latinoamerican Cultural Studies – Media Culture – Capitalism – Puerto Rican Novel – Satire.

top_DOWNLOAD Daniel Lévêque, Hacia un diccionario español-francés de centroamericanismos léxicos: una elaboración dual, por extracción literaria y confirmación de usos

Abstract: Towards a Spanish-French Dictionary of Lexical Central Americanisms. A double elaboration, by literary extraction and confirmation of use. The very substance of the indigenous narratives of Central America (1920-1970) has led us to analyze the regional linguistic idiosyncracies they contain, i.e. their formal constituents. The “screening” of some hundred literary works allowed us to create the first sizeable specific lexicon of this geographic area and of the “extended” period 1920-1990. Using a syntagmatic corpus (literary discourse or textual data), we built up a paradigmatic corpus (of independent and reusable language units), with a clear descriptive, synthetic and didactic intention. Our purpose here is to offer the double methodological approach to our Dictionary of Central American Spanish whose actualized and bilingual Spanish-French version is now ready.
Key words: Lexicography – Literary discourse – Regionalism – Language use – Central America

top_DOWNLOAD Carmen Ruiz Barrionuevo, La obra poética de Clementina Suárez. «Y que he encontrado la verdad en la médula de mis huesos»

Abstract: The poetical works of Clementina Suárez. Y que he encontrado la verdad en la médula de mis huesos. The appearance in Tegucigalpa in 2012 of Complete Poetry of Clementina Suárez makes first full knowledge of the work of the Honduran poet, previously only partially accessible. In this paper a review of his poetic journey is from its beginnings in the romantic line and postmodernist Corazón sangrante (1930) to move to the stage of greater uniformity and erotic incorporation of poetic prose books published in Mexico in 1931: Iniciales, De mis sábados el último y Los templos de fuego. The theme of motherhood will become permanent and poetics of the body is Engranajes (1935). From Veleros (Havana, 1937) the previous reverie is broken and begins to exhibit political consciousness. In his later poems, poetry no longer has to do with feeling but with blood and death, that is, with what we call the vital commitment and human history including the issue of motherhood. The love theme will receive a new vigor in the long poem of 1957, Creciendo con la hierba (1957), a masterpiece in which through eight sections updated the theme of love as an engine of human life incardinated into a united world.
Keywords: Spanish American Poetry – Poetry Honduras – Clementina Suárez.
