Download or read book Anni 80 Il Decennio d oro del Cinema Horror written by Matteo Tortora and published by Self-Publish. This book was released on 2014-11-19 with total page 118 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Il presente libro nasce come tentativo di sintetico catalogo ragionato del cinema horror degli anni 80 compiuto da uno spettatore che nel 1980 aveva cinque anni e nel 1990 quindici, quindi uno spettatore fortemente influenzabile e che, pertanto, risente, nei giudizi, delle proprie memorie di giovane testimone, delle paure e delle inquietudini che le tematiche horror gli trasmettevano. L'approccio ai film avviene pertanto su basi fortemente affettive e nostalgiche. L'angolo di prospettiva seguito, è francamente unilaterale: non si è voluto rifare qui una storia generale ed approfondita del cinema horror dal 1980 al 1990, ma verificare l'influenza diretta delle varie tematiche sulla produzione internazionale, le imitazioni del passato e gli indirizzi e le nuove mete indicate dai maestri quali Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Kubrick, Carpenter, ect. ect.. Così analizzando le varie tematiche e le piccole o grandi ideologie che esse trasmettono potremo ritrovare alcuni tratti tipici di fortunatissimi filoni quali Halloween, Venerdì 13, solo per citare i più importanti. Inoltre un viaggio nel Cinema Horror degli anni 80 analizzato sotto un profilo laico ed il profilo religioso, prettamente cattolico. Diversificazioni di analisi, certo, ma un sicuro approfondimento delle tematiche che ci interessano. Infatti di tutti i film presi in considerazione, non solo si dà un sintetico giudizio laico, ma si riporta anche l’approfondita Scheda redatta dal Centro Cattolico Cinematografico che analizza la trama, valuta il film sotto il profilo etico-morale-religioso, al fine di indicare ai Cattolici se può essere visto o meno. Ne viene fuori uno spaccato veramente interessante e, a volte, addirittura divertente. Bisogna dare atto, però, che la critica cattolica sa diversificare il giudizio religioso da quello tecnico-creativo. Ciò vuol dire che un film può essere riconosciuto come un capolavoro, ma non per questo ottenere il nulla osta di visibilità. Il libro è stato concepito per l’editoria elettronica è come tale ha delle peculiarità che il libro cartaceo non ha. La principale è quella della interattività. Non indispensabile ma opportuna. Disponendo di una connessione internet sul proprio lettore di ebook sarà possibile collegarsi, ad esempio, a Wikipedia potendo così consultare una scheda approfondita del film e del suo regista. Inoltre subito dopo l’introduzione si riportano tutti i film horror usciti dal 1980 al 1989 linkati a IMDB e a MRQE per le recensioni in lingua inglese.

Download or read book 80 s The Gold Decade Of The Horror Movie written by Matteo Tortora and published by Self-Publish. This book was released on 2014-11-18 with total page 196 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A journey into the numerous Horror Films of the 80's analyzed under a "religious" profile which is purely Catholic. The diversification of the analysis is, of course, an issue that interests us. In fact, of all the films taken into consideration, this journey not only gives a brief opinion of the film, but it also shows the depth and thoughts shared and prepared by the Catholic Cinematographic Center. This Centre analyzes the plot and also evaluates the film under an ethical, moral and religious aspect in order to indicate if Catholics are able to watch it. The result is a really interesting insight and sometimes it has a fun perspective. We must acknowledge, however, that the critical Catholic knows how to diversify religious opinion from the technical-creative aspects. This means that a film can be recognized as a masterpiece but not get the clearance for visibility. 65 deepened critical articles of the most important films of the decade. Over 9000 Horror Movies from 1980 to 1989 linked to external resources for Cast, Posters, Images and Reviews. The electronic version of this book is designed in Kindle, PDF and Epub format. This is an interactive book. An Internet connection is not essential although it is recommended so the reader can take advantage of the many external links that are present in the work.

Download or read book Forbidden Passages written by Karoline P. Cook and published by University of Pennsylvania Press. This book was released on 2016-04-29 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Spanish authorities restricted emigration to the Americas to those who could prove they had been Catholic for at least three generations. In doing so, they hoped to instill religious orthodoxy in the colonies and believed Muslim converts, or Moriscos, would hamper efforts to convert indigenous people to Catholicism. Nevertheless, Moriscos secretly made the treacherous journey across the ocean, settling in the forbidden territories and influencing the nature of Spanish colonialism. Once landed, Morisco men and women struggled to define and practice their religion or pursue their trades, all while experiencing increasing anxiety about their place in the emerging Spanish empire. Many Moriscos were accused by authorities of descending from Muslims or practicing Islam in secret and turned to the courts to assert their legitimacy. Forbidden Passages is the first book to document and evaluate the impact of Moriscos in the early modern Americas. Through close examination of sources that few historians have used—some one hundred cases of individuals brought before the secular, ecclesiastical, and inquisitorial courts—Karoline P. Cook shows how legislation and attitudes toward Moriscos in Spain assumed new forms and meanings in colonial Spanish America. Moriscos became not simply individuals struggling to join a community that was increasingly hostile to them but also symbols that sparked authorities' fears about maintaining religious purity in the face of territorial expansion. Cook reveals how Morisco emigrants shined a light on the complicated question of what it meant to be Spanish in the New World.

Download or read book The Handless Maiden written by Mary Elizabeth Perry and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2013-10-24 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1502, a decade of increasing tension between Muslims and Christians in Spain culminated in a royal decree that Muslims in Castile wanting to remain had to convert to Christianity. Mary Elizabeth Perry uses this event as the starting point for a remarkable exploration of how Moriscos, converted Muslims and their descendants, responded to their increasing disempowerment in sixteenth- and early-seventeenth-century Spain. Stepping beyond traditional histories that have emphasized armed conflict from the view of victors, The Handless Maiden focuses on Morisco women. Perry argues that these women's lives offer vital new insights on the experiences of Moriscos in general, and on how the politics of religion both empowers and oppresses. Drawing on archival documents, legends, and literature, Perry shows that the Moriscas carried out active resistance to cultural oppression through everyday rituals and acts. For example, they taught their children Arabic language and Islamic prayers, dietary practices, and the observation of Islamic holy days. Thus the home, not the battlefield, became the major forum for Morisco-Christian interaction. Moriscas' experiences further reveal how the Morisco presence provided a vital counter-identity for a centralizing state in early modern Spain. For readers of the twenty-first century, The Handless Maiden raises urgent questions of how we choose to use difference and historical memory.
Download or read book Visions of Deliverance written by Mayte Green-Mercado and published by Cornell University Press. This book was released on 2020-01-15 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Visions of Deliverance, Mayte Green-Mercado traces the circulation of Muslim and crypto-Muslim apocalyptic texts known as joferes through formal and informal networks of merchants, Sufis, and other channels of diffusion among Muslims and Christians across the Mediterranean from Constantinople and Venice to Morisco towns in eastern Spain. The movement of these prophecies from the eastern to the western edges of the Mediterranean illuminates strategies of Morisco cultural and political resistance, reconstructing both productive and oppositional interactions and exchanges between Muslims and Christians in the early modern Mediterranean. Challenging a historiography that has primarily understood Morisco apocalyptic thought as the expression of a defeated group that was conscious of the loss of their culture and identity, Green-Mercado depicts Moriscos not simply as helpless victims of Christian oppression but as political actors whose use of end-times discourse helped define and construct their society anew. Visions of Deliverance helps us understand the implications of confessionalization, forced conversion, and assimilation in the early modern period and the intellectual and theological networks that shaped politics and identity across the Mediterranean in this era.
Download or read book The Argentine Novel written by Myron I. Lichtblau and published by . This book was released on 1997 with total page 1111 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Argentine Novel is a comprehensive bibliography of the Argentine novel from its beginnings in 1788, the year Miguel Learte wrote Las aventuras de Learte, until 1990, when such authors as Osvaldo Soriano and Luisa Valenzuela published their popular novels. In addition to novels, the bibliography includes works which may be considered under the rubric of short novel, such as novela corta, which, in spite of its short length, partakes more of the novel than the short story in its basic literary conception, plot development, and narrative scope. Where possible, all editions of each novel or work are cited, as well as translations into foreign languages, and citations may be followed by one or more critical commentaries or select bibliographies of additional studies on the work or its author. This exhaustive work serves as the definitive guide to this genre in Argentine literature. A must for all collections that support comparative literature studies, Hispanic studies, or as a guide to popular reading.

Download or read book The Fruits of the Early Globalization written by Rafael Dobado-González and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021 with total page 314 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents an unusual view on one of the most influential periods in world economic history: the Early Globalization. By this term, the notion that a process of genuine globalization took place in the Early Modern Era is defended. The authors propose that the canonical globalization that of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was preceded by a century-long increasing economic integration between continents that were non-existent before 1492. The economic aspects of the Early Globalization, like market integration, price co-movements and international silver circulation, were very important. Notwithstanding, other dimensions of human life, which were affected by unprecedented intercontinental contacts, including free and forced migrations, changes in tastes and consumption, etc. The Fruits of Globalisation deals with some of the most important issues among the former and the latter. The book combines approaches from different disciplines, including quantitative and non-quantitative economic history, econometrics, international trade and demography. Overall, the vision of the Early Globalisation offered in this book is less pessimistic than in mainstream literature on the period. Rafael Dobado-Gonzalez is Professor of Economic History, Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. He was Tinker visiting Professor at the Institute for Latin American Studies, Columbia University, New York, USA, in the second semester of 2010, and visiting scholar at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Harvard University, USA, on several occasions.
