REVISTA CANADIENSE DE ESTUDIOS HISPANICOS
Proposals are sought in Spanish or English for one issue 2018 of the Revista de Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, to be devoted to the study of manifestations of literary suicides in Hispanic Literature (Spain and Spanish America). In the case of authors committing suicide, we welcome proposals emphasizing the links between suicide, reality and the author’s literary production: ¿How is an author’s work contemplated from the perspective of suicide? From a gender point of view, the differences between female and male suicidal authors may also be explored. Likewise, we are interested in an approach to the way the author’s death by own hand affects the reception of published works: ¿What ideas on suicide prevail at different times and in different spaces, influencing textual interpretation? In Spain, the voluntary deaths of Mariano José de Larra and Angel Gavinet and, more recently, that of poet Paula Sinos, show the close relation between suicide and literary creation. In Spanish America, among other authors, the cases of José María Arguedas, Alejandra Pizarnik, José Asunción Silva and Alfonsina Storni are well known, as well as the deaths of characters such as Allende (in Sábato’s The Tunnel) and Cuéllar (in Vargas Llosa’s “The Cubs”).
The Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal, published by the Canadian Association of Hispanists. We welcome submissions that consider, among other topics, the following:
