Romantic Love in Cultural Contexts
Language: en
Pages: 305
Authors: Victor Karandashev
Categories: Social Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-12-24 - Publisher: Springer
This volume presents a conceptual, historical, anthropological, and sociological review of how culture affects our experience and expression of romantic love. What is romantic love and how is it different from and similar to other kinds of love? How is romantic love related to sex and marriage in human history and across contemporary cultures? What cultural factors mediate attraction in love? These are some of the questions the volume explores through its interdisciplinary yet focused lens. Much of the current research evidence suggests that love is a universal emotion experienced by a majority of people, in various historical eras, and in all the world’s cultures. Yet, love displays in different ways because culture has an impact on people’s conceptions of love and the ways they feel, think, and behave in romantic relationships. This volume summarizes classical knowledge on love and culture while at the same time focusing sharply on recent studies and cutting-edge research that has advanced the field. Divided into three parts, the volume begins by defining and analyzing the concept of romantic love and interdisciplinary approach to its study in cultural context. Part II traces the origin and evolution of romantic love both in various places throughout the
Ficino in Spain
Language: en
Pages: 364
Authors: Susan Byrne
Categories: Electronic books
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015 - Publisher: University of Toronto Press
As the first translator of Plato's complete works into Latin, the Florentine writer Marsilio Ficino (1433-99) and his blend of Neoplatonic and Hermetic philosophy were fundamental to the intellectual atmosphere of the Renaissance. In Spain, his works were regularly read, quoted, and referenced, at least until the nineteenth century, when literary critics and philosophers wrote him out of the history of early modern Spain. In Ficino in Spain, Susan Byrne uses textual and bibliographic evidence to show the pervasive impact of Ficino's writings and translations on the Spanish Renaissance. Cataloguing everything from specific mentions of his name in major texts to glossed volumes of his works in Spanish libraries, Byrne shows that Spanish writers such as Miguel de Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Bartolom� de las Casas, and Garcilaso de la Vega all responded to Ficino and adapted his imagery for their own works. An important contribution to the study of Spanish literature and culture from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries, Ficino in Spain recovers the role that Hermetic and Neoplatonic thought played in the world of Spanish literature.

Unrequited Love and Gay Latino Culture
Language: en
Pages: 146
Authors: D. Contreras
Categories: Social Science
Type: BOOK - Published: 2005-01-14 - Publisher: Springer
Drawing on a wide range of material from art, theater, music, and literature, Contreras argues that historical memory is embedded in these forms of art and can perhaps take us "somewhere better than this place." The critical energies in the book come from Chicana/o and queer studies. Contreras views unrequited love as a utopian space of possibility and transformation. The discussion includes The Boys in the Band, Arturo Islas, Paris is Burning, Judy Garland, and Kiss of the Spider Woman.
Love and Politics in the Contemporary Spanish American Novel
Language: en
Pages: 189
Authors: Aníbal González
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2010-02-01 - Publisher: University of Texas Press
The Latin American Literary Boom was marked by complex novels steeped in magical realism and questions of nationalism, often with themes of surreal violence. In recent years, however, those revolutionary projects of the sixties and seventies have given way to quite a different narrative vision and ideology. Dubbed the new sentimentalism, this trend is now keenly elucidated in Love and Politics in the Contemporary Spanish American Novel. Offering a rich account of the rise of this new mode, as well as its political and cultural implications, Aníbal González delivers a close reading of novels by Miguel Barnet, Elena Poniatowska, Isabel Allende, Alfredo Bryce Echenique, Gabriel García Márquez, Antonio Skármeta, Luis Rafael Sánchez, and others. González proposes that new sentimental novels are inspired principally by a desire to heal the division, rancor, and fear produced by decades of social and political upheaval. Valuing pop culture above the avant-garde, such works also tend to celebrate agape—the love of one's neighbor—while denouncing the negative effects of passion (eros). Illuminating these and other aspects of post-Boom prose, Love and Politics in the Contemporary Spanish American Novel takes a fresh look at contemporary works.
Europe and Love in Cinema
Language: en
Pages: 294
Authors: Luisa Passerini, Jo Labanyi, Karen Diehl
Categories: Family & Relationships
Type: BOOK - Published: 2012-01-01 - Publisher: Intellect Books
Europe and Love in Cinema explores the relationship between love and Europeanness in a wide range of films from the 1920s to the present. A critical look at the manner in which love - in its broadest sense - is portrayed in cinema from across Europe and the United States, this volume exposes constructed notions of 'Europeanness' that both set Europe apart and define some parts of it as more 'European' than others. Through the international distribution process, these films engage with ideas of Europe from both outside and within, while some, treated extensively in this volume, offer alternative models of love. A bracing collection of essays from top film scholars, Europe and Love in Cinema demonstrates the centrality of desire to film narrative and explores multiple models of love within Europe's frontiers.
Love and the Game
Language: en
Pages: 280
Authors: Daniel Ali
Categories: Fiction
Type: BOOK - Published: 2020-06-02 - Publisher: Gatekeeper Creative Works
Do hustlers need love too? This is the question in the fictional jaunt of Love and the Game. Jersey City author, Daniel Ali explores the socio-economic causes of criminality in the inner cities of America, and how those who get caught up in the ‘Game’ reconcile their lives, relationships, and emotions. Ali unpacks the ‘Game’ through protagonist Adriano de Souza, a young, first-generation Afro-Brazilian street hustler torn between a lucrative but violent world and the woman he’s loved his entire life. He intentionally and methodically unmasks their pain and secret coping mechanisms as they struggle to balance life with betrayal and deception. He skillfully breathes life into relatable characters by focusing on the real-world human themes evident in the tragic but all too common reality of the street. While Love and the Game exposes the truths of the fast-life allure and the American lust for material gain, it also offers a unique perspective of the conflicted, inner humanity of many of those who get caught up and whose voices are often muted.
To Love and To Serve

Brian O’Leary, an Irish Jesuit, has been researching and writing on Ignatian spirituality since the 1970s. Over that period he has authored five books, the last of which (God Ever Greater, 2018) was a selection of his lectures and talks. His new offering, To Love and To Serve, is also a selection – this time of essays that have appeared in spirituality journals in a number of countries. Since these are not easily accessible, O’Leary made the decision to gather together the best of his work in this genre into one book, so making that work more widely available. The essays vary considerably in content, purpose, and style. Some are short and aimed at a popular readership, others tend to be more academic or written with practitioners of Ignatian spirituality in mind. All are eminently readable and display great clarity of style. Ignatian spirituality is most commonly associated with the Spiritual Exercises. Consequently these figure largely in O’Leary’s writings. However, the Exercises do not represent the totality of Ignatian spirituality and so there are a number of pieces on the Jesuit Constitutions – a spiritual classic that is surprisingly relevant outside its original context. The Constitutions are frequently quoted today
