Book Summary:

James Joyce is now widely considered the most influential writer of the twentieth century. His name and his most important works appeared again and again in fin-de-millennium surveys. This is the case not only in the English-speaking world, but also in many European literatures. Joyce's influence is most pronounced in French, German and Italian literatures, where translations of most of his works appeared during his life-time and where he had a clear impact on his fellow-writers. In other countries and cultures, his influence took more time to register, sometimes after the war in the fifties and sixties, and sometimes only in the final decade of the century. This was the case in most of the languages of Eastern Europe, where the translation of Joyce's work could only begin after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s. This book contains two volumes.

Book Summary:

For nearly a century of being underestimated as a literary genre, the short story is currently experiencing a revival. The editors of this collection of articles have brought together the contributions of nine outstanding scholars in the field of the short story to reveal some of the many directions in which the genre is expanding. This book is a reasoned and well-documented anthology which casts light on new aspects of the short story. It participates in the current trend of short story criticism, characterized by the gathering in one single volume of a diversity of approaches with the main aim of promoting discussion on this thriving area of literary studies. The editors of this volume believe that a fruitful tension may rise by putting side by side insights into a not so well known tradition, on the one hand, and fresh considerations on unexpected developments of the short story, on the other. All in all, the short story emerges as a dynamic and flexible form that reacts and adapts itself better than any other literary genre to the challenges of the sceptical times we live in.

Book Summary:

There are numerous ways to understand failure in literature: failure to produce a work of demonstrable literary merit, or failure to publish a work despite such merit; failure to see something translated, adapted or performed adequately, or indeed to see it translated, adapted or performed at all; failure to establish a connection with the contemporary reading public, failure to please critics, or to charm readers and hence the failure to achieve substantial sales.

Book Summary:

El presente libro es un homenaje a la figura y a la vida académica de Enrique Alcaraz Varó y, muy especialmente, a su dedicación durante más de treinta años como docente e investigador de la Universidad de Alicante. Fue catedrático de Filología Inglesa y publicó innumerables trabajos de gran impacto, impartiendo sus enseñanzas por todo el mundo. El volumen está organizado en cuatro grandes bloques en los que puede sistematizarse el análisis y la investigación del profesor Alcaraz: la enseñanza y adquisición de lenguas; la literatura, cultura y crítica; la lingüística; y la traducción e interpretación. Toda su obra gira en torno a los valores más amplios de la lengua y sus relaciones con la sociedad, es decir, se centra en la interdisciplinariedad entre la lengua y cualquier hecho o fenómeno de la vida.
