Abstract

Coincidiendo con el ochenta aniversario del comienzo de la Guerra Civil Española, la publicación La memoria transgeneracional se plantea observar la transmisión transgeneracional, en España, de la memoria del conflicto de 1936–1939, a través de la mirada proporcionada por la literatura de tercera generación. Su primera sección se centra alrededor de un acercamiento interdisciplinar a la «memoria» como objeto de estudio, y de la contextualización de la memoria traumatizada en España a partir del año 1939. Por medio de la observación de un corpus de novelas recién publicadas, el objetivo principal de la investigación es la formulación de pautas interpretativas que ayuden a parcelar la rápida evolución del panorama literario de la España actual en lo que se refiere a la representación del pasado conflictivo de la nación.

Abstract

Schiller’s Don Carlos, written ten years before his great Wallenstein trilogy, testifies to the young playwright’s growing power. First performed in 1787, it stands at the culmination of Schiller’s formative development as a dramatist and is the first play written in his characteristic iambic pentameter. Don Carlos plunges the audience into the dangerous political and personal struggles that rupture the court of the Spanish King Philip II in 1658. The autocratic king’s son Don Carlos is caught between his political ideals, fostered by his friendship with the charismatic Marquis Posa, and his doomed love for his stepmother Elisabeth of Valois. These twin passions set him against his father, the brooding and tormented Philip, and the terrible power of the Catholic Church, represented in the play by the indelible figure of the Grand Inquisitor. Schiller described Don Carlos as "a family portrait in a princely house." It interweaves political machinations with powerful personal relationships to create a complex and resonant tragedy. The conflict between absolutism and liberty appealed not only to audiences but also to other artists and gave rise to several operas, not least to Verdi’s great Don Carlos of 1867. The play, which the playwright never finished to his satisfaction, lives on nonetheless among his best-loved works and is translated here with flair and skill by Flora Kimmich. Like her translations of Schiller’s Wallenstein and his Fiesco’s Conspiracy at Genoa, this is a lively and accessible rendering of a classic text. As with all books in the Open Book Classics series, it is supported by an introduction and notes that will inform and enlighten both the student and the general reader.

Abstract

The ideology of purity-of-blood (limpieza de sangre) dividedearly modern Iberian society into two different classes: OldChristians and New Christians. New Christians, i.e. Conversos (converted Jews) and Moriscos (convertedMuslims), but also their offspring, were thought to be inferior Christians and always tending towards apostasy. At the turn of the 17th century an increased interest in bodily markers to proof the presumed inferiority of the so-called NewChristians can be observed. The book focusses on the question how the apologists of the purity-of-blood statutesused the idea of inherited bodily markers to promote agenealogical racism in early modern Iberia.
