La presente tesis tiene por objeto analizar dos corpus de textos: la producción de cuentos durante los años noventa y las poéticas del género redactadas por los propios cuentistas. A grades rasgos, este trabajo se divide en dos grandes bloques. El primero, compuesto por los tres capítulos iniciales, es un recorrido panorámico y (levemente) crítico por las cuestiones que atañen al estudio. El capítulo introductorio trata de las diferentes aproximaciones a la definición de los géneros con el fin de extraer un breve índice de problemas que nos lleve al asunto tratado en el trabajo: la pragmática del género cuento y la perspectiva de la Teoría de los Polisistemas. El segundo capítulo repasa diferentes propuestas para la definición del cuento, centrándose en aquellas basadas en la perspectiva del autor. Por fin, el tercer capítulo, proporciona un panorama sobre las principales tendencias sociales y literarias del momento, y una ficha bibliográfica de cada escritor del corpus. El segundo bloque supone "el núcleo duro" de nuestra aportación. En el capítulo cuarto hemos analizado las ideas de nuestros cuentistas sobre la literatura, los géneros y sus manifestaciones. La lectura de este corpus pone de manifiesto la redundancia de sus discursos. Para comprobar este fenómeno, hemos empleado instrumentos informáticos que permiten establecer unas estadísticas sobre las palabra clave de estos textos (análisis cuantitativo). Una segunda herramienta de análisis cualitativo ha permitido que visualicemos en forma de mapa de conceptos las conexiones entre las definiciones. En el capítulo quinto comprobamos de qué manera funcionan las comparaciones de géneros en las diversas poéticas. Acudimos, en fin, como último paso, a los propios cuentos para comprobar la adecuación entre las ideas explícitas sobre el cuento y los principios implícitos en las creaciones de los cuentistas. Nuestro objetivo, en el capítulo sexto consiste en localizar cuáles son las fuentes de inspiración más constantes, y qué relación guardan estas fuentes entre sí y con las producciones que los cuentistas nos ofrecen de facto. Por último, los escritores nos hablan en sus cuentos, a través de la metaficción, del hecho creativo de una manera diferente a como la hacen a través de una entrevista o un ensayo.

This is a comprehensive sourcebook on the world’s most famous vampire, with more than 700 citations of domestic and international Dracula films, television programs, documentaries, adult features, animated works, and video games, as well as nearly a thousand comic books and stage adaptations. While they vary in length, significance, quality, genre, moral character, country, and format, each of the cited works adopts some form of Bram Stoker’s original creation, and Dracula himself, or a recognizable vampiric semblance of Dracula, appears in each. The book includes contributions from Dacre Stoker, David J. Skal, Laura Helen Marks, Dodd Alley, Mitch Frye, Ian Holt, Robert Eighteen-Bisang, and J. Gordon Melton.

A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author's pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write fiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler. Shane Oakley beautifully illustrates New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman's satirical tale.

America's most renowned social philosopher John Dewey shines his powerful intellect on the serious public and cultural issues surrounding the place of the individual in a technologically advanced society. In this penetrating study, he addresses the fear that personal creative potential will be trampled by assembly-line monotony, political bureaucracy, and an industrialized culture of uniformity. Armed with his pragmatic approach and his belief in the power of critical intelligence, Dewey argues that individualism has in fact been offered a uniquely higher plane of technological development upon which to grow, mature, and redefine itself.John Dewey (1859-1952) authored more than two dozen books and scores of articles in both scholarly and popular publications. He rightly deserves the title of America's foremost philosopher and his work will influence intellectuals throughout the world for many years to come.

"This translation makes available to the English-reading public another treatment of that most famous of Spanish literary creations: the Don Juan figure. This is a Don Juan in decline who will come to grips with his emptiness by learning to love. Picon's frank discussion of a description of the act of love was a daring undertaking in the Spain of the time, and perhaps led to his being dismissed - by some - as being "erotic," which was clearly meant to be pejorative. But he also introduced humor into Sweet and Delectable without taking away from the serious nature of his exploration of a love relationship, and with delightfully Cervantine chapter headings, a la Don Quixote de la Mancha, pokes fun where it needs to be poked while giving the reader a glimpse of things to come in a comic nutshell."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

In this "thoughtful, entertaining, and often insightful" book, a former CIA director explores the delicate give-and-take between the Oval Office and Langley. With the disastrous intelligence failures of the last few years still fresh in Americans minds--and to all appearances still continuing--there has never been a more urgent need for a book like this. In Burn Before Reading, Admiral Stansfield Turner, the CIA director under President Jimmy Carter, takes the reader inside the Beltway to examine the complicated, often strained relationships between presidents and their CIA chiefs. From FDR and "Wild Bill" Donovan to George W. Bush and George Tenet, twelve pairings are studied in these pages, and the results are eye-opening and provocative. Throughout, Turner offers a fascinating look into the machinery of intelligence gathering, revealing how personal and political issues often interfere with government business--and the nation's safety.

The Book That Inspired the Netflix Original Documentary, They'll Love Me When I'm Dead In the summer of 1970, legendary but self-destructive director Orson Welles returned to Hollywood from years of self-imposed exile in Europe and decided it was time to make a comeback movie. Coincidentally, it was the story of a legendary self-destructive director who returns to Hollywood from years of self-imposed exile in Europe. Welles swore it wasn’t autobiographical. The Other Side of the Wind was supposed to take place during a single day, and Welles planned to shoot it in eight weeks. It took six years, and remains unreleased and largely unseen. Orson Welles’s Last Movie is a fast-paced, behind-the-scenes account of the bizarre, hilarious, and remarkable making of what has been called “the greatest home movie that no one has ever seen.” Funded by the shah of Iran’s brother-in-law, and based on a script that Welles rewrote every night for years, the film was a final attempt to one-up his own best work. It’s a production best encompassed by its star, John Huston, who described the making of the film as “an adventure shared by desperate men that finally came to nothing.”

This volume presents the main tenets of Sanctius linguistic theory and explores the questions raised by Robin Lakoff in her 1969 review of the "Grammaire generale et raisonnee (Port Royal)." Part I surveys earlier developments in the study of language, in particular the Graeco-Roman and Medieval traditions, the Renaissance period, and Judaeo-Arabic scholarship. Part II contains a synopsis in English of Sanctius "Minerva," placing special emphasis on theoretical passages and illustrative data. Part III is devoted to Sanctius linguistic doctrine: (1) his philosophical approach to language analysis, (2) his notion of logical structure and rule, (3) his classification of the parts of speech, and (4) his basic semantic postulates.

Self-Made Men is a famous lecture (1895). In this speech, which was first delivered in 1859, Frederick Douglass gives his own definition of the self-made man and explains what he thinks are the means to become such a man. The concept of the self-made man is deeply rooted in the American Dream. Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, is sometimes said to have created the concept of the self-made man. In his Autobiography, he describes his way from a poor, unknown son of a candle-maker to a very successful business man and highly acknowledged member of the American society. Franklin creates the archetype of someone coming from low origins, who, against all odds, breaks out of his inherited social position, climbs up the social ladder and creates a new identity for himself. Key factors in this rise from rags to riches are hard work and a solid moral foundation. Franklin also stresses the significance of education for self-improvement.
