Abstract

Come muore la gloriosa “Repubblica delle Lettere” del Settecento? In che modo, al confine tra Sette e Ottocento, la comunità dei gens de lettres cede il passo alla frammentazione del sapere e della curiosità intellettuale, alle diverse modalità di scrittura che annunziano l’età moderna? A questa ricerca è dedicato il sesto volume pubblicato dal Centro Studi Interdisciplinare Metamorfosi dei Lumi dell’Università di Torino, che raccoglie il frutto della riflessione collettiva svoltasi nell’ambito del centro durante gli anni accademici 2009 e 2010. Prendendo le mosse dagli sviluppi della filosofia nel corso del Settecento, si focalizza l’attenzione su due aspetti dell’evoluzione culturale del periodo di transizione tra illuminismo e modernità: il rapporto della scienza medica con la letteratura, e il sorgere di una nuova identità dei letterati.

Abstract

From the perspective of Latin American Studies, this volume offers a critical contribution to the current debate on world literature. It is structured around three conceptual blocks: gatekeepers, as the dispositives and actors mediating the international circulation of literature translation, as an unavoidable but always problematic mechanism and local literatures, as modes of writing that remain intrinsically tied to their contexts.

Abstract

This book aims to modify the focus of common center-periphery dynamics of research on World Literature: Using the example of Latin American literatures, this study provides innovative insights into the literary modeling of shared historical experiences, epistemological crosscurrents, and book market processes within the Global South which thus far have received scant attention.

Abstract

This book presents 12 papers about the influences of the classical tradition (Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian mythologies, Greek and Renaissance philosophy, classical theatre, etc.) in Spanish modern and contemporary cultural production, with special focus on literature, popular culture and cinema. Within the wide range of proposed studies, the monograph is divided into three thematic sections. The first unit investigates the subjective poetics in authors who are focused on the theme of exile and on the The Odyssey’s imaginary. After that, the book focuses on the presence of female mythological matrices in the recent Hispanic literature. The last section is devoted to theoretical studies on relations between mythologisation and fictionality in the cultural artifacts of the Hispanic world.

Abstract

This volume offers a new theoretical approach to cultural production inspired by the metaphor of culture as a virtual network. Following a thorough outline of this approach, the theoretical framework is elucidated in a second part through examples drawn from early modern European drama. A third and final part then presents a critical discussion of the concept of national culture and literature, from its first formulation by Johann Gottfried Herder to its current developments, including postcolonial studies.
