Despite the great popularity and increased prestige of classic detective fiction, as well as the American hard-boiled novel, since their introduction in the nineteenth century many readers and authors have perceived them as genres incompatible with Latin American realities. The inherent conventions of the whodunit, the presence of a detective whose legitimacy is never in doubt, and its conservative ideology, which presupposed the punishment of criminality and the reestablishment of the status quo, were incongruous in societies in which people had no faith in justice. The genre, then, was regarded as unrealistic for third world countries. In this way, in order to be plausible, the detective novel in Latin America needed a different approach. In broad terms, these pages propose the emergence of a new genre that can be observed in the works of contemporary authors such as Vicente Leñero's Los albañiles (1963), Ricardo Piglia's Nombre falso (1975), Jorge Ibargüengoitia's Las muertas (1977) and, most notably, in Roberto Bolaño's Los detectives salvajes (1998), which I consider the most prominent and complex example of this type. The present study examines how this innovative Spanish American detective fiction incorporates and restates some of the structures and conventions of the hard-boiled novel and shares some features of contemporary Spanish American fiction, while developing its own characteristics in contrast with both detective fiction schools. Due to the necessity of the native writers to adopt, formally and thematically, alternative approaches when creating credible detective stories, I have named this emergent genre: Spanish American alternative detective fiction.

The Enigma of Gunpowder Plot 1605

In his Introduction, the late Fr Edwards quotes Archbishop Mathewâ??s succinct summary of the three solutions to the gunpowder plot: according to the orthodox, old-fashioned view Salisbury discovered the conspiracy, a second judgement is that he nourished it and a third that is that he invented it. The third solution is carefully investigated in this book. In his very typical style, Fr Edwards constructs his narrative of events by drawing heavily on the extant primary sources - which is not to say that he does not notice the huge bibliography on the subject. Sir Robert Cecil, Lord Salisbury does not come well out of this extensive study - but that is only to be expected.

This dissertation examines the linguistic representations of bodies, in particular those of the desaparecidos, in literature after Argentina's Dirty War. Contemporary Argentine literature in its discussion of this military dictatorship demands recognition of the politics and dynamics surrounding the corporeal, such as the politics of desaparicion on, the abjection of desaparecidos, and the reempowerment of bodies in resistance writing.

Os ensaios reunidos neste livro falam das cartas trocadas por personalidades de épocas e nacionalidades distintas. Cada um deles é uma rara oportunidade de transitar pela história de diferentes territórios da intimidade, por relações de amor e amizade, por experiências singulares de sociabilidade. As cartas - sejam as de Joyce, Fernando Pessoa ou d. Pedro I, de Walter Benjamin, Proust, Machado de Assis, Oswald de Andrade ou Hannah Arendt - documentam biografias e trajetos individuais, da mesma forma que testemunham climas de opinião e cenários de época. E o fazem no ritmo pausado das conversas, intercaladas por lances de humor e momentos de lirismo. Percorrer esta vasta literatura epistolar é situar-se nas zonas intermediárias entre o documento e a ficção, entre a literatura e a história.
