I Believed In Me

Autor: Ambrocio Magana

Número de Páginas: 164

I was born in a small town that at that time had about 300 inhabitants between children and adults ... I am a simple person, not very happy but not bitter. I am always willing to help those who need it; I do not wait for me to go begging, I offer help. I do not have much education I went to school for a short time. I finished sixth grade until I had 15 years old, but I remember that since I was young I liked to write stories, although I had never had the opportunity to publish them. I hope these stories reach your hearts and I also hope they like you. I want you enjoy them so much that you want to read them all... and other stories more. Remember that reading gives you education and culture. A part of these stories is true. A common occurrence for some people, whether by nature or custom, is to criticize or judge others and, often we do not realize that we make that person, or their family feel bad. Sometimes we can even physically or mentally harm them. Among the stories written here, one is true. It speaks of a little girl who has been criticized since her birth but has had the intelligence to turn criticism into positive energy. She has not stopped to listen to mediocre...

A young girl's diary

A young girl's diary

Autor: Sigmund Freud

This authentic diary, kept by a Viennese schoolgirl when she was eleven to fourteen years old, first appeared publicly in 1919. Richly expressive and emotionally moving, it intimately chronicles her passage from childhood to puberty with frankness, lucidity, and an honesty that scandalized the anonymous author's contemporaries. Originally presented by Sigmund Freud as a specimen to analyze and observe the development of a young female during the vital years of personal growth, the book relates, in a gently ironic tone, daily encounters and experiences as well as private conversations and exchanged intimacies with a close friend. "So charming, so serious, and so artless, that it cannot fail to be of supreme interest to educationists and psychologists."—Sigmund Freud "Psychotherapists and analysts will enjoy debating the implications of the document's frank evocation of the sexual awakening of a cosseted girl."—Publisher's Weekly

The children who decided to change it all

The children who decided to change it all

Autor: Marcela Fonseca

Número de Páginas: 40

Children with disabilities just want to be treated as kids, they don’t need people feeling sorry for them. They want to have friends, to be accepted, to be invited to other kid’s birthdays, to feel included not to be discriminated against. Inclusive education is a great first step and an indispensable tool to achieve this goal. The children who decided to change it all is a book which, more than tolerance, celebrates the acceptance of disabilities, without concessions, ifs or buts.

Cartucho and My Mother's Hands

Cartucho and My Mother's Hands

Autor: Nellie Campobello

Número de Páginas: 144

Nellie Campobello, a prominent Mexican writer and "novelist of the Revolution," played an important role in Mexico's cultural renaissance in the 1920s and early 1930s, along with such writers as Rafael Muñoz and Gregorio López y Fuentes and artists Diego Rivera, Orozco, and others. Her two novellas, Cartucho (first published in 1931) and My Mother's Hands (first published as Las manos de Mamá in 1938), are autobiographical evocations of a childhood spent amidst the violence and turmoil of the Revolution in Mexico. Campobello's memories of the Revolution in the north of Mexico, where Pancho Villa was a popular hero and a personal friend of her family, show not only the stark realism of Cartucho but also the tender lyricism of My Mother's Hands. They are noteworthy, too, as a first-person account of the female experience in the early years of the Mexican Revolution and unique in their presentation of events from a child's perspective.

Folk Stories from the Hills of Puerto Rico / Cuentos folklóricos de las montañas de Puerto Rico

Folk Stories from the Hills of Puerto Rico / Cuentos folklóricos de las montañas de Puerto Rico

Autor: Rafael Ocasio

Número de Páginas: 214

This exciting new anthology gathers together Puerto Rican folktales that were passed down orally for generations before finally being transcribed beginning in 1914 by the team of famous anthropologist Franz Boas. These charming tales give readers a window into the imaginations and aspirations of Puerto Rico’s peasants, the Jíbaro. Some stories provide a distinctive Caribbean twist on classic tales including “Snow White” and “Cinderella.” Others fictionalize the lives of local historical figures, such as infamous pirate Roberto Cofresí, rendered here as a Robin Hood figure who subverts the colonial social order. The collection also introduces such beloved local characters as Cucarachita Martina, the kind cockroach who falls in love with Ratoncito Pérez, her devoted mouse husband who brings her delicious food. Including a fresh English translation of each folktale as well as the original Spanish version, the collection also contains an introduction from literary historian Rafael Ocasio that highlights the historical importance of these tales and the Jíbaro cultural values they impart. These vibrant, funny, and poignant stories will give readers unique insights into...

Visualizando el Cambio: Humanidades Ambientales / Envisioning Change: Environmental Humanities

Autor: Alejandro Rivero-vadillo , Carmen Flys-junquera

Número de Páginas: 272

The 21st century has been described by many environmental scholars as the one in which humanity will need to face its greatest challenge. The diverse ramifications of the climatic crisis are perhaps the most evident proof of this. This dual-lingual multiauthor volume reflects different perspectives of envisioning an eco-social change towards a more sustainable and just society. Musings on the philosophical implications of utopias, ecofeminism, biopolitics, and biomimicry come together with photography and participatory documentaries. "Envisioning Change: Environmental Humanities" opens with an essay from one of Spain’s foremost essayists on environmental philosophy, Jorge Riechmann. Literary analyses run from classic myths to oral traditions, including references to frequently neglected traditions such as Bhutan or Croatia, in addition to Spain and the United Kingdom. Rather than emulate theoretical and overarching studies, as several of the recent books on environmental humanities, this volume has many original features, including the abundant references to myths and chapters on eco-translation. This volume reflects a wide variety of approaches and particularly highlights the...

la visión de la mujer Irlandesa de finales de siglo XIX y principios del XX en la narrativa de George Moore: una perspectiva feminista

la visión de la mujer Irlandesa de finales de siglo XIX y principios del XX en la narrativa de George Moore: una perspectiva feminista

Autor: María Elena Jaime De Pablos

Número de Páginas: 320

Se ha analizado la narrativa de George Moore, en concreto aquella que tiene como referente Irlanda, y se ha investigado la imagen que el autor propaga en torno a sus contemporáneas irlandesas. Dicha imagen se ha contrastado con la que ofrecen de ellas fuentes históricas. El resultado del contraste ha sido un elevado índice de similitud entre las descripciones dadas por el autor y las presentadas por estudiosos de la mujer en Irlanda durante finales del siglo XIX y principios del siglo XX, época de auge de la llamada "Women Question". Asimismo, se ha constatado que George Moore participa del controvertido debate que tal cuestión centra a juzgar por multitud de pasajes en los que se decanta abiertamente a favor de que la mujer goce de los mismos derechos y privilegios que los varones en el terreno social, jurídico, laboral o educativo, al tiempo que manifiesta su aversión hacia ideologías filosóficas, políticas o religiosas que conciben al sexo femenino en un plano secundario, siempre subordinado al masculino. La perspectiva de análisis adoptada ha radicado en la crítica literaria feminista.

Lorca: Mariana Pineda

Lorca: Mariana Pineda

Número de Páginas: 185

Mariana Pineda (1925) was Lorca's first success in the theatre. Based on a popular Andalusian ballad, it tells the story of Mariana Pineda who was garrotted in 1831 under the reactionary regime of Ferdinand VII for embroidering a Liberal flag and refusing to betray her lover. Written during the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, the political message would not have escaped Lorca's audience. But the play is primarily the work of a poet and its appeal lies in the delicate tension that results from a deft blend of lyricism and drama which culminates in an astonishing level of spirituality in the final scenes when Mariana awaits her execution in a prison-convent. The characteristic themes of Lorca's tragedies - love, frustration, fate, freedom, death and womanhood - flourish within the play's appropriate and exquisite romantic mood. Spanish text with facing-page translation, introduction and commentary.

Constructing selves: Issues in Gender, Age, Ethnicity and Nation

Constructing selves: Issues in Gender, Age, Ethnicity and Nation

Autor: Eduardo De Gregorio-godeo , Ángel Mateos-aparicio

Número de Páginas: 346

The notion of self has become crucial for contemporary cultural studies in its examination identities. Identities are often conceptualized as an engagement of the individual’s self—their condition of being a person—with broader cul-tural cons tructs. However, in addition to being culturally situated, the constitution of selves may be conceived of through identity-construction phenomena whereby individuals’ subjectivities take up, or resist, the subject posi-tions made available in discursive practices. Selves—the notion of ‘Who and I?’—may only be understood as resulting from power-based discourses and cultural practices. In this respect, the idea of the self could be best made sense of in the broader context of the circuits of cul-ture where identities are conformed together with other key cultural processes including representation and cul-tural production, consumption and regulation. The chapters in this collection explore the relations of selves with a wide range of cultural products (e.g. mass media, poetry, fiction, film, painting, advertising, the Internet, education, the institutional, etc.) across a multiplicity of social, political, geographical and...

Secrets of State

Secrets of State

Autor: Juan Carlos Zambrana M

Número de Páginas: 228

Secret of State explains how the respect and admiration of some countries for the United States, was turned into anti-imperialism. Starting with the uprising of the Bolivian people in October 2003, against their president and their proverbial enemy, "the Yankee Empire," two investigators dig into history to unearth the Pandora's Box of the Bolivia-United States relations, and the root cause for Bolivian anti-imperialistic sentiment. Putting in jeopardy their own lives, they obtain valuable information on the devious schemes of certain White House administrations, to impose their abusive policies on Bolivia, with the complicity of that country's own puppet regimes; the resistance of the Bolivian people, and the response with repression, rigged elections, massacres, revolutions, dictatorships, and assassination of opposing leaders. The author masterfully weaves together historical events, and declassified information, to create, using real and fictional characters, an exciting plot full of action and suspense that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Beyond Intensity

Beyond Intensity

Autor: Ramon Vila

After years of traveling the world, searching for all life has to offer, Toni Martí realizes that his youthful curiosity has soured into stagnation, depression, and drug addiction. While stumbling through what remains of his life, he commits a crime and is sentenced to community service at a nursing home. Forced to comply, he forms a grudging relationship with Juan, an octogenarian whose family long ago abandoned him, and whose day-to-day life seems undisturbed by change. He also encounters Lucía, who runs the nursing home, but not her life; too fearful to follow the lure of her dreams or rebel against her parents, she has grown dull and unhappy. “Beyond Intensity” captures the story of three characters trapped in lives that bring them only loneliness and despair. Soon, they will be forced to discover what is beyond the pursuit of momentary pleasure, beyond routine, beyond conformity. Against the backdrop of a dehumanized society, these three characters’ lives give us the opportunity to reflect on the culture of immediacy and the search for instant gratification—to ask ourselves, what lies beyond intensity?

Recollections of Things to Come

Recollections of Things to Come

Autor: Elena Garro

Número de Páginas: 299

This remarkable first novel depicts life in the small Mexican town of Ixtepec during the grim days of the Revolution. The town tells its own story against a variegated background of political change, religious persecution, and social unrest. Elena Garro, who has also won a high reputation as a playwright, is a masterly storyteller. Although her plot is dramatically intense and suspenseful, the novel does not depend for its effectiveness on narrative continuity. It is a book of episodes, one that leaves the reader with a series of vivid impressions. The colors are bright, the smells pungent, the many characters clearly drawn in a few bold strokes. Octavio Paz, the distinguished poet and critic, has written that it "is truly an extraordinnary work, one of the most perfect creations in contemporary Latin American literature."
