José Bergamín : a critical introduction, 1920-1936 by Nigel Dennis( Book )

19 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writer, critic, and cultural activist José Bergamín (1895-1983) was unjustly relegated to the sidelines of contemporary Spanish intellectual life for reasons that have more to do with his political dissidence and long periods of exile than with the interest and importance of his written work. This book represents the first attempt to come to terms with that work. Professor Dennis's study focuses on the period 1920-1936, the so-called silver age of Spanish literature, during which Bergamín rose to prominence alongside a group of superlatively gifted writers and friends, among them Frederico Garcia Lorca, Rafael Alberti, Jorge Guillén, and Pedro Salinas. It sets out to explain the nature of the relationship Bergamín had as a critic and prose writer with the major poets of the 1920s and 1930s, and at the same time systematically examines the singularity of his own work as an aphorist, essayist, and dramatist. Professor Dennis also devotes attention to explaining the sense of Bergamín's initiative in founding the important journal Cruz y Raya (1933-1936) and the role this publication played, both culturally and politically, during the troubled years of the Second Republic. This book not only fills a notable gap in our understanding of pre--Civil War literary and intellectual life in Spain, but also lays the foundation for all future research into the work of this fascinating and enigmatic writer

Teatro de la guerra civil : el bando republicano( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La historia del teatro está llena de obras amenas, brillantes, divertidas o profundas que no han llegado a convertirse en clássicos de primera línea. Estudiadas en los manuales de literatura, rara vez editadas y apenas representadas, estas obras han quedado muchas veces ocultas para el público, al no existir una edición moderna. La Biblioteca Temática Resad se propone llenar este vacío con volúmenes que recojan textos con un criterio temático para ofrecer una visión amplia de ciertos movimientos, estilos o temas que son hoy patrimonio de los especialistas. En este caso, Teatro de la guerra civil: el bando republicano pretende, en primera instancia, dar a conocer un corpus relevante de textos que, escritos durante el período bélico, defendieron con desigual suerte la causa republicana. En segundo término, reúne una serie de obras, en su mayoría breves, cuyo principal interés radica en su condición de testimonios vivos de una época. En la mayor parte de los casos se trata de textos de difícil acceso, cuando no de verdaderas novedades para lectores e investigadores, como así sucede con La conquista de Madrid, de César M. Arconada. El volumen, pues, cubre una laguna editorial importante, tan sólo paliada, muy parcialmente, por dos volúmenes aparecidos en los años setenta, a saber: José Monleón, El Mono Azul. Teatro de urgencia y Romancero de la guerra civil (1979) y Miguel Bilbatiúa, Teatro de agitación política. 1933-1939 (1976). Es de resaltar, en este sentido, la labor de documentación llevada a cabo por Luis Miguel Gómez Díaz en su reciente Teatro para una guerra [1936-1939], editada por el Centro de Documentación Teatral. Partiendo de estas aportaciones parciales, proponemos una atractiva selección de textos en la que se combinan diversos criterios, y en la que hemos evitado incluir las piezas más conocidas, ya editadas en las Obras completas"--Publisher's website
