ULYSSES (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 21/01/2013
JAMES JOYCE

Resumen del eBook

"Ulysses"is one of the most important works of Modernist literature.The novel is approximately 265,000 words in length, uses a lexicon of 30,030 words and is divided into eighteen episodes."Ulysses"chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyces first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle). Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homers poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (e.g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus). Joyce fans worldwide now celebrate 16 June as Bloomsday.Since publication, the book has attracted controversy and scrutiny, ranging from early obscenity trials to protracted textual"Joyce Wars."Ulysses stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prosefull of puns, parodies, and allusions, as well as its rich characterisations and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the Modernist literature. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Ulysses first on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. ... Leer resumen completo

THE AMERICAN DETECTIVE NOVEL IN TRANSLATION (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 01/09/2011
DANIEL PETER LINDER MOLIN

Resumen del eBook

Partiendo de la hipótesis de que toda traducción implica manipulación, se seleccionaron y se analizaron entre cuatro y seis casos textuales ideológicamente problemáticos, como por ejemplo algunas instancias de dudosa moralidad sexual. La existencia de numerosas traduc- ciones permite una amplia visión histórica y cultural q ue engloba el periodo autócrata franquista en España (1939-1975) y el periodo golpista y represivo en Argentina (1976-1982). El análisis revela que las traducciones argentinas, las primeras en producirse, no fueron censuradas (Al borde del abismo, Hopenhaym, 1947), aunque algunas de las más tempranas sufrieron supre- siones al ser condensadas (Una mosca muerta, Goligorsky, 1956 y El largo adiós, De Setaro, 1956). Las traducciones españolas más tempranas fueron o bien autocensuradas (Detective por correspondencia, Macho-Quevedo, 1945 y Una dama tenebrosa, De Luaces, 1949) o censuradas por el gobierno (El sueño eterno, Navarro y ¡Adiós para siempre preciosidad!, Márquez, publicadas en Novelas escogidas (Aguilar: Madrid, 1958). Entre 1972-1973 Barral Editores (Barcelona) publicó traducciones nuevas de estas novelas en su Serie Negra Policial. Aunque estas versiones se convirtieron en las clásicas al publicarse masivamente en la España postfranquista en Editorial Bruguera, dos son plagios (El sueño eterno y El largo adiós, ambas atribuidas a Lara cuando son copias de obras de Navarro y De Setaro respetivamente) y otra es una traducción desde el francés (La hermana pequeña, Vinyoli). Nuevas traducciones autónomas no censuradas se publicaron en 2001 y 2002 de la mano de Alianza Editorial, tres de ellas producidas por José Luis López Muñoz, ganador del Premio Nacional de Traducción en 1980 y 2000.Palabras clave: análisis literaria, Argentina, censura, condensación, España, manipulación ideológica, moralidad sexual, novela negra norteamericana, plagio, Raymond Chandler, supresión, traducción. ...
