Guida alla letteratura di fantascienza by , Summary

La fantascienza ha cambiato il mondo. A partire dalla fine dell’Ottocento, quando i primi scrittori hanno cominciato a immaginare un futuro dominato dalla macchina, dalle scoperte scientifiche, da vettori capaci di vincere la gravità e viaggiare nello spazio, questa narrativa ha contribuito a costruire il futuro dell’uomo nell’era della tecnica, anticipando invenzioni, scoperte, e mettendo in guardia contro i rischi della meccanizzazione. Ma anche la fantascienza è cambiata. Si è fatta adulta: dai “pulp magazine” da pochi centesimi, attraverso la narrativa d’intrattenimento è approdata alla “Letteratura ufficiale”, quella con la “L” maiuscola, entrando a pieno titolo nelle scuole, nelle università, nelle biblioteche e nelle cineteche; rappresentando, al pari di altre opere della creatività, l’intuizione e la complessità del pensiero umano. Oggi la fantascienza non è solo divertimento, ma anche occasione di conoscenza, critica sociale, riflessione sul futuro dell’uomo. Per avvicinarci a questa innovativa opportunità di “vedere” la realtà con occhi nuovi, consapevoli della sua rilevanza, è necessario andare alle sue radici, non tanto scrivendone la storia, quanto presentandone i temi fondamentali e i luoghi topici sui quali si sono esercitati gli scrittori di fantascienza fino a oggi. Ogni “voce” è autoconclusiva e si legge come un racconto a se stante, aprendo, nel collegamento con altri lemmi, una rete del sapere e dell’immaginario, con un effetto di rimandi e citazioni che incuriosisce e sorprende. A questo volume si è dedicato un gruppo di critici e studiosi, tra i maggiori esperti del settore, raccolti attorno alla rivista IF (Insolito e Fantastico) e coordinati da Carlo Bordoni. Testi di: Claudio Asciuti Carlo Bordoni Domenico Gallo Riccardo Gramantieri Giuseppe Panella Gian Filippo Pizzo. Una summa ragionata che non ha precedenti in Italia Un’enciclopedia tematica per lemmi dall’Ottocento a oggi Una raccolta degli autori più significativi di sempre Una guida agli autori italiani Curiosità, approfondimenti, incursioni nel cinema e altri media

Assalto al cielo by AA. VV. Summary

Assalto al cielo è una ricognizione estremamente articolata e avanzata nel campo della fantascienza, che si serve di un apparato grafico e narrativo inedito, realizzato ad hoc per la pubblicazione, e di una batteria d’autori di rilievo nazionale e internazionale, scienziati, filosofi, giornalisti, storici dell’arte, del cinema, del teatro, sociologi, esperti di tecnologie astronautiche e spaziali, scrittori di fantascienza, economisti, giuristi, storici del pensiero, epistemologi, architetti aerospaziali, ingegneri elettronici, esperti di robotica e informatici. La postfazione del saggio è affidata a Franco La Cecla, che individua analogie tra le ricerche antropologiche e il territorio della fantascienza. Un saggio conciso e denso di riflessioni ed esemplificazioni, che ci fa pensare che questi due territori e discipline potrebbero avere molte aree in comune, seppure con notevoli differenze. Un tale dispiegamento di forze e di autori è motivato dalla convinzione che una riflessione complessa e non semplificata nei territori della fantascienza, della scienza e della tecnologia sia oltremodo urgente e abbia bisogno di strumenti e prospettive multidisciplinari, aperte ai reali scenari sociali, scientifici e tecnologici che si stanno preparando e che la fantascienza, sia quella antica e delle origini sia quella contemporanea e modernista, ha sempre cercato d’anticipare, di descrivere, di disciplinare e formalizzare.

Selena's Secret by María Celeste Arrarás Summary

20th Anniversary Edition An intimate and investigative portrait of beloved Mexican American singer Selena Quintanilla’s murder by Emmy Award-winning journalist María Celeste Arrarás. Now with a new foreword and afterword by the author for the 20th Anniversary Edition. There is no doubt that Yolanda Saldívar pulled the trigger and killed Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla Pérez on March 31, 1995. But does anyone know what really happened in Room 158 of the Days Inn, moments before the crime took place? María Celeste Arrarás has many answers, and her unrivaled coverage of the murder, trial, and aftermath made her the undisputed expert on the Selena case. Arrarás shares firsthand information about the crime and the people involved—including details of her headline-making jailhouse interview with Yolanda, who repeatedly spoke of “Selena’s secret”—a powerful hidden piece of information that she refused to divulge in the courtroom but revealed to Arrarás at length. Many questions were raised, and not all were answered until this revealing interview shed light on the crime. Why was there a suitcase filled with Selena’s clothes at the murder scene? What was the significance of the jeweled ring, adorned with the initial S that fell from Selena’s bloody fist? Who was the doctor from Monterrey who called himself Selena’s confidant and business adviser? Selena’s Secret fits together the pieces of this puzzle and depicts what really happened on that rainy day in March.

Spatial and Temporal Dimensions for Legal History by Massimo Meccarelli,María Julia Solla Sastre Summary

http://dx.doi.org/10.12946/gplh6http://www.epubli.de/shop/buch/53894"The spatiotemporal conjunction is a fundamental aspect of the juridical reflection on the historicity of law. Despite the fact that it seems to represent an issue directly connected with the question of where legal history is heading today, it still has not been the object of a focused inquiry. Against this background, the book’s proposal consists in rethinking key confluences related to this problem in order to provide coordinates for a collective understanding and dialogue. The aim of this volume, however, is not to offer abstract methodological considerations, but rather to rely both on concrete studies, out of which a reflection on this conjunction emerges, as well as on the reconstruction of certain research lines featuring a spatiotemporal component. This analytical approach makes a contribution by providing some suggestions for the employment of space and time as coordinates for legal history. Indeed, contrary to those historiographical attitudes reflecting a monistic conception of space and time (as well as a Eurocentric approach), the book emphasises the need for a delocalized global perspective. In general terms, the essays collected in this book intend to take into account the multiplicity of the spatiotemporal confines, the flexibility of those instruments that serve to create chronologies and scenarios, as well as certain processes of adaptation of law to different times and into different spaces. The spatiotemporal dynamism enables historians not only to detect new perspectives and dimensions in foregone themes, but also to achieve new and compelling interpretations of legal history. As far as the relationship between space and law is concerned, the book analyses experiences in which space operates as a determining factor of law, e.g. in terms of a field of action for law. Moreover, it outlines the attempted scales of spatiality in order to develop legal historical research. With reference to the connection between time and law, the volume sketches the possibility of considering the factor of time, not just as a descriptive tool, but as an ascriptive moment (quasi an inner feature) of a legal problem, thus making it possible to appreciate the synchronic aspects of the ‘juridical experience’. As a whole, the volume aims to present spatiotemporality as a challenge for legal history. Indeed, reassessing the value of the spatiotemporal coordinates for legal history implies thinking through both the thematic and methodological boundaries of the discipline."

Delos Science Fiction 210 by Carmine Treanni Summary

Fantascienza - rivista (75 pagine) - Uno speciale su Ad Astra e articoli su Margaret Attwood, l'universo cinematografico della DC Comics e su Gli immortali di Poul Anderson. Ad Astra, il nuovo film di James Gray, con Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jolnes e Donald Sutherland, s'inserisce nella scia di quei film il cui capostipite è l'inarrivabile 2001: Odissea nello spazio di Stanley Kubrick, ossia storie in cui un viaggio verso lo spazio è anche un viaggio verso la conoscenza di se stessi. È quello che accade al personaggio del film di Gray che parte alla ricerca del padre, per scoprire che lui stesso non è esattamente quello che credeva di essere, come uomo e come rappresentante dell'intera umanità. Ci raccontano questa pellicola, senza spoiler, il regista James Gray e i protagonisti nello speciale del numero 210 di Delos Science FIction. Tra le rubriche di questo numero c'è tanta fantascienza letteraria. Enrico Di Stefano ci parla di un capolavoro di Poul Anderson, Gli immortali e implicitamente ci chiede di riscoprirlo. Donato Rotelli, invece, ci introduce a due romanzi esplicitamente fantascientifici, opera di autori non di genere, che si sono imposti all'attenzione del grande pubblico grazie alle trasposizioni cine-televisive: il primo è Non lasciarmi (2005) del premio Nobel Kazuo Ishiguro, da cui Alex Garland ha tratto la sceneggiatura per il film di Mark Romanek, e il secondo è Il racconto dell'ancella, romanzo del 1985 a cui è ispirata la serie TV di successo di Hulu. Andrea Pelliccia, invece, ci racconta – nella sua rubrica Contaminazioni – le connessioni tra Il pensiero del gesuita Teilhard de Chardin e la fantascienza di Asimov, Clarke e Simmons. Nella rubrica sulle novità social e digital, segnaliamo la ripubblicazione del romanzo vincitore del Premio Urania Lazarus di Alberto Cola. Nei servizi, Arturo Fabra ci spiega i problemi che sono alla base dell'universo cinematografico della DC Comics, mentre Vincenzo Graziano presenta il nuovo romanzo di Carlo Menzinger e il nuovo fumetto di Francesco Vacca, entrambe opere italiane e di genere distopico. Nel suo editoriale, il curatore Carmine Treanni dà conto delle rivelazioni fatte da Bob Iger, CEO della Disney, su come George Lucas – all'indomani dell'acquisizione della Lucas Film da parte della Disney nel 2012 – fosse contrario a come la Disney intendesse proseguire il franchise di Star Wars. Il racconto di questo numero è di Giancarlo Vitagliano. Rivista fondata da Silvio Sosio e diretta da Carmine Treanni.

Posthumanism in Italian Literature and Film by Enrica Maria Ferrara Summary

As humans re-negotiate their boundaries with the nonhuman world of animals, inanimate entities and technological artefacts, new identities are formed and a new epistemological and ethical approach to reality is needed. Through twelve thought-provoking, scholarly essays, this volume analyzes works by a range of modern and contemporary Italian authors, from Giacomo Leopardi to Elena Ferrante, who have captured the shift from anthropocentrism and postmodernism to posthumanism. Indeed, this is the first academic volume investigating narrative configurations of posthuman identity in Italian literature and film.

Grazia Deledda's Dance of Modernity by Margherita Heyer-Caput Summary

Grazia Deledda (1871-1936) was the author of many influential novels and remains one of the most significant Italian women writers of her time. However, critics tend to pigeonhole her works into convenient literary categories and to ignore the uniqueness of her style and voice. Grazia Deledda's Dance of Modernity offers a timely and thought-provoking interpretation of this Nobel laureate, examining her work in the context of European philosophical and literary modernity. Margherita Heyer-Caput takes a philosophical and philological approach in order to provide a reassessment of Deledda's position in the literary canon. At the same time, she raises the larger issue of the status of allegedly 'regional' or 'minor' literatures within the context of Italian modernity. Dealing with four novels representative of Deledda's vast corpus, Heyer-Caput addresses and dismantles elements of regionalismo, verismo, and decadentismo, labels with which Deledda's works are regularly associated. This is the first volume to introduce some of Deledda's overlooked texts to an Anglophone audience. It invites readers to overturn established critical categories and to question margin-centre hierarchies both in the broad context of literary modernity and the narrower frame of Deledda's writing. Grazia Deledda's Dance of Modernity is a highly original and innovative interpretation of Deledda's narrative in philosophical perspective, which also includes the study of textual variations and considers cultural history in Italy during the early twentieth century. It is a much-needed examination of an important writer and how she managed to construct her own literary and gender identity in the context of modernity.

Visual Experiences in Cinquecento Theatrical Spaces by Javier Berzal de Dios Summary

Through an interdisciplinary examination of sixteenth-century theatrical spaces, Visual Experiences in Cinquecento Theatrical Spaces studies the performative aspects of the early modern stage, paying special attention to the overlooked complexities of audience experience. Examining the period’s philosophical and aesthetic ideas about space, place, and setting, the book shows how artists consciously moved away from traditional representations of real spaces on stages to conjure spectacles that pushed their collective audiences towards more imaginative, collaborative engagements no longer tethered to strict definitions of naturalism. In this way, Visual Experiences breaks with traditional interpretations of early modern staging techniques, arguing that the goal of early modern artists was not the creation of a naturalistically unified stage constructed for a single, privileged viewer, but rather a complex multimedia experience addressing a diverse set of viewers. In stressing the wider scenographic possibilities of the sixteenth-century stage, the book focuses on how space created various modes of audience engagement.

A Gravity's Rainbow Companion by Steven C. Weisenburger Summary

Adding some 20 percent to the original content, this is a completely updated edition of Steven Weisenburger's indispensable guide to Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow. Weisenburger takes the reader page by page, often line by line, through the welter of historical references, scientific data, cultural fragments, anthropological research, jokes, and puns around which Pynchon wove his story. Weisenburger fully annotates Pynchon's use of languages ranging from Russian and Hebrew to such subdialects of English as 1940s street talk, drug lingo, and military slang as well as the more obscure terminology of black magic, Rosicrucianism, and Pavlovian psychology. The Companion also reveals the underlying organization of Gravity's Rainbow--how the book's myriad references form patterns of meaning and structure that have eluded both admirers and critics of the novel. The Companion is keyed to the pages of the principal American editions of Gravity's Rainbow: Viking/Penguin (1973), Bantam (1974), and the special, repaginated Penguin paperback (2000) honoring the novel as one of twenty "Great Books of the Twentieth Century."
