- ItemLa questione del dono nella poesia di Eugenio Montale(AMU Press, 2010-06-30) Malicka, PaulinaThe purpose of this article is to present a new interpretation of Eugenio Montale’s early poems from the perspective of the gift theory which, ever since the publication of Bronisław Malinowski’s Argonauts of the Western Pacific and Marcel Mauss’s anthropological study Essai sur le don, has become one of the most fruitful interdisciplinary conversations among anthropologists, philosophers, scholars and economists. The paper is focused on the genesis of gift in Montale which coincides, in a certain way, with Heidegger’s concept of Dasein thrown into the world which has alredy been given to it. The analysis of different passages from Mediterraneo session will then appear as a new interpretative horizon of Montale’s poetry governed by the immense power of gift that interacts within the triadic relation: refuse – receive – repay.
- ItemSimpatías por el Mal: El discurso persuasivo en “Sympathy for the Devil” de los Rolling Stones y “Jesucristo García” de Extremoduro(AMU Press, 2010-06-30) Gregori i Gomis, AlfonsDealing with discourses produced in Contemporary Popular Music, it is usual in contemporary youth’s imaginary to find rock considered as metonymic with authenticity, remaining as a movement an outstanding extension of Romanticism. Then, when drawing out its motifs from Satanism, successful rock lyrics need a rhetorical stylization in order to construct persuading songs beyond traditional morals. The main goal of this article is to analyze and compare this kind of stylization in Rolling Stones’s Sympathy for the Devil and Jesucristo García, written by the Spanish band Extremoduro, taking them both as examples of popularized dramatic monologues that present the topic of attraction of Evil performed by devilish figures.
- ItemLa letteratura “pulp” ossia “Giovani cannibali”, il “Neonoir”, la “Scuola dei Duri” o il “Gruppo 13”? Le polemiche sui confini del nuovo genere letterario(2012-05-31T07:43:26Z) Firlej, AgnieszkaThe paper aims to present pulp as one of the main genres of contemporary Italian literature. This extreme kind of noir was born in the 1990s and immediately gained popularity among readers and caused controversy amid critics: from high and flattering opinions to complete rejection. The author examines the origin of the genre and the story of its development in Italy. She also describes the distinctive qualities of this kind of literature such as dark topics, eclectic form and mixture of languages. In addition, the paper shows various visions of pulp represented by different groups of authors: a serious and uncompromising or a light and amusing way of depicting the violence, inherited from Quentin Tarantino.
- ItemLe tradizioni come identità: la Baìo di Sampeyre(2012-05-31T07:42:23Z) Olcese, GianlucaDuring the last Baìo in 2007, I interpreted carnival as an occasion to investigate popular traditions. Agricultural feasts have been present since ancient times, sometimes hidden behind the veil of other meanings: today they represent a way to allow the present society to feel itself as a continuation of the past. The communities of small local areas show a representation of their identity through ancient rituals – like manifestations, such as the Baìo – to sew their relationships with the modern territory. Those rituals also demonstrate several, and sometimes unexpected, connections with different cultures of the present and the past.
- ItemLas cartas y diarios de Guatemala de Andrzej Bobkowski como ejemplos de traducción intercultural. Propuesta de un nuevo enfoque traductológico(2012-05-31T07:41:17Z) Kasperska, IwonaThe aim of this paper is to introduce a new approach in translation studies which is an intercultural translation. Based on the methodology of postcolonial theory, the manipulation school and polysystem theory, it allows for an analysis of texts originally written in the language of the target culture. Application of this new framework is exemplified by diaries and letters of a Polish writer, Andrzej Bobkowski.
