"Like cartographers after the Treaty of Versailles, contemporary critics of picaresque literature are hard at work redrawing lines and polemicizing boundaries in an attempt to resolve prevailing problems of definition and method. To reevaluate this canon of texts and to address critical issues, a group of internationally renowned scholars gathered in April 1989 for a two-day conference, "The Picaresque: A Symposium on the Rogue's Tale," which was held at the University of Maryland at College Park and sponsored by the Center for Renaissance and Baroque Studies in conjunction with the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. The essays in this volume grew out of this scholarly exchange and map out an unusually broad landscape of contemporary critical concern." "The volume opens with an essay by Marina S. Brownlee, which addresses whether there is an "essential feature, configuration, or environment that determines the presence of a picaresque text." In his study of classicity in the Spanish Golden Age, Joseph V. Ricapito examines the Perez translation of the Odyssey and its link with the Spanish picaresque genre. Bruno M. Damiani's essay focuses on Lozana Andaluza as an important link between Celestina and the Lazarillo and investigates traits common in the later novel of roguery. "The Picaresque and Autobiography" by Randolph D. Pope examines the split vision of autobiography in Golden Age picaresque. Calhoun Winton looks into the rise of the picaresque novel in seventeenth-century London printing and publishing practice. Studying pamphlets, chapbooks, and periodicals, he poses the question: By whom were these examples of the picaresque mode written, for what reward, and with what audience in mind? Jerry C. Beasley's "Translation and Cultural Translatio" addresses questions of the translation of picaresque texts and the impact of this genre on novelistic discourse throughout Europe. In his essay Gerald Gillespie contextualizes Grimmelshausen's The Adventurous German Simplicissimus in French comic and satiric and Spanish disillusionistic modes. Nancy Vogeley examines Lizardi's Don Catrin de la Fechenda in the context of the Enlightenment and redefinition and politicization of the concepts of vice and virtue and discusses how these changing thought patterns facilitated the task of American writers who were then rethinking their political and moral landscape. Jerome Christensen's essay on Lord Byron investigates with primary and secondary textual sources the meaning of picaresque in Don Juan, establishes the vitality of the genre in this work, and looks into the distinction made between tuum and meum. The closing essay, Mario M. Gonzalez's "The Brazilian Picaresque," presents an overview of the genre in Brazilian literature." "This volume represents the diversity of scholarly approaches to the study of picaresque and opens up new questions concerning the picaresque canon, especially regarding its criteria for the definition of parameters that include elements from classical antiquity to contemporary theory."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This volume offers a thorough introduction to Jewish world literatures in Spanish and Portuguese, which not only addresses the coexistence of cultures, but also the functions of a literary and linguistic space of negotiation in this context. From the Middle Ages to present day, the compendium explores the main Jewish chapters within Spanish- and Portuguese-language world literature, whether from Europe, Latin America, or other parts of the world. No comprehensive survey of this area has been undertaken so far. Yet only a broad focus of this kind can show how diasporic Jewish literatures have been (and are ) – while closely tied to their own traditions – deeply intertwined with local and global literary developments; and how the aesthetic praxis they introduced played a decisive, formative role in the history of literature. With this epistemic claim, the volume aims at steering clear of isolationist approaches to Jewish literatures.

The information overload produced by the printing press and the new forms of the structuring of knowledge are echoed in fictional works. The essays assembled in this book study the textualization of problematic forms of knowledge in medieval and early modern Spanish literature. Literary Works like the Libro buen amor, La Lozana Andaluza, or the Guzmán de Alfarache are read against the backdrop of scientific developments of their times.

Fictions of Containment in the Spanish Female Picaresque

Fictions of Containment in the Spanish Female Picaresque

Delicado's innovation in La Lozana andaluza was to focus his work on a prostitute as protagonist, a move popularized by later texts such as I ragionamenti and that defines the Spanish female picaresque genre.

This study examines the interdependence of gender, sexuality and space in the early modern period, which saw the inception of architecture as a discipline and gave rise to the first custodial institutions for women, among them convents for reformed prostitutes. Meanwhile, conduct manuals established prescriptive mandates for female use of space, concentrating especially on the liminal spaces of the home. This work traces literary prostitution in the Spanish Mediterranean through the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, from the rise of courtesan culture in several key areas through the shift from tolerance of prostitution toward repression. Kuffner's analysis pairs canonical and noncanonical works of fiction with didactic writing, architectural treatises, and legal mandates, tying the literary practice of prostitution to increasing control over female sexuality during the Counter Reformation. By tracing erotic negotiations in the female picaresque novel from its origins through later manifestations, she demonstrates that even as societal attitudes towards prostitution shifted dramatically, a countervailing tendency to view prostitution as an essential part of the social fabric undergirds many representations of literary prostitutes. Kuffner's analysis reveals that the semblance of domestic enclosure figures as a primary erotic strategy in female picaresque fiction, allowing readers to assess the variety of strategies used by authors to comment on the relationship between unruly female sexuality and social order.

Toward the end of the fifteenth century, Spanish Christians near the border of Castile and Muslim-ruled Granada held complex views about religious tolerance. People living in frontier cities bore much of the cost of war against Granada and faced the greatest risk of retaliation, but had to reconcile an ideology of holy war with the genuine admiration many felt for individual members of other religious groups. After a century of near-continuous truces, a series of political transformations in Castile—including those brought about by the civil wars of Enrique IV's reign, the final war with Granada, and Fernando and Isabel's efforts to reestablish royal authority—incited a broad reaction against religious minorities. As Thomas Devaney shows, this active hostility was triggered by public spectacles that emphasized the foreignness of Muslims, Jews, and recent converts to Christianity. Enemies in the Plaza traces the changing attitudes toward religious minorities as manifested in public spectacles ranging from knightly tournaments, to religious processions, to popular festivals. Drawing on contemporary chronicles and municipal records as well as literary and architectural evidence, Devaney explores how public pageantry originally served to dissipate the anxieties fostered by the give-and-take of frontier culture and how this tradition of pageantry ultimately contributed to the rejection of these compromises. Through vivid depictions of frontier personalities, cities, and performances, Enemies in the Plaza provides an account of how public spectacle served to negotiate and articulate the boundaries between communities as well as to help Castilian nobles transform the frontier's religious ambivalence into holy war.
