Del Amor y Otros Demonios


García Márquez, Gabriel, Del amor y otros demonios, Bogotá: Grupo Editorial Norma, 1994.

Disponible en línea (PDF).

Del amor y otros demonios es una obra literaria escrita por Gabriel García Márquez y publicada en el año 1994. Relata la historia de Sierva María de Todos los Ángeles, quien ha sufrido grandes calvarios a lo largo de su corta vida. En este proceso narrativo se van describiendo diversos paisajes de Cartagena-Colombia en la época colonial con sus problemas sociales, culturales, ambientales, etc.


Of Love and Other Demons is a novel by Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez, first published in 1994. (…) In the prologue, García Márquez claims the novel is the fictional representation of a legend the author was told by his grandmother as a child: of a 12 year-old girl who contracts rabies but was believed to be a 'miracle-worker', with long flowing copper hair that continues to grow after death. In this frame-story, it was only after an excavation of tombs that García Márquez is witness to the grave of a similar young girl with long red hair still attached to the skull, that he was inspired to write Of Love and Other Demons.

El General en su Laberinto


García Márquez, Gabriel, El General en su Laberinto, Bogotá: Editorial Oveja Negra, 1989.

El general en su laberinto es una novela del escritor colombiano y Premio Nobel de Literatura Gabriel García Márquez. Se trata de una novela histórica que recrea los últimos días de Simón Bolívar, uno de los principales líderes de los procesos de independencia política desarrollados en América del Sur en el primer cuarto del siglo XIX. Publicado en 1989, el relato se centra en el último episodio protagonizado por Bolívar: el viaje que le llevó de Cartagena a la costa caribeña de Colombia para intentar abandonar América y exiliarse en Europa. En la novela, que se puede encuadrar en el subgénero narrativo de las novelas de dictadores, "la desesperanza, la enfermedad y la muerte inevitablemente superan al amor, la salud y la vida".1 Rompiendo con la tradicional visión heroica de Bolívar, ofrece un retrato del libertador cercano al patetismo y subrayando los rasgos que acompañan a su prematura vejez: físicamente enfermo y mentalmente exhausto.2 La novela explora los laberintos de la vida de Bolívar a través de la narración de sus recuerdos.


The General in His Labyrinth is a novel by the Colombian writer and Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez. It is a fictionalized account of the last days of Simón Bolívar, liberator and leader of Gran Colombia. First published in 1989, the book traces Bolívar's final journey from Bogotá to the Caribbean coastline of Colombia in his attempt to leave South America for exile in Europe. In this dictator novel about a continental hero, "despair, sickness, and death inevitably win out over love, health, and life".[1] Breaking with the traditional heroic portrayal of Bolívar El Libertador, García Márquez depicts a pathetic protagonist, a prematurely aged man who is physically ill and mentally exhausted.[2] The story explores the labyrinth of Bolívar's life through the narrative of his memories.

L'occasion nous vient d'etudier une liste d'esclaves de Cayenne à la fin du XVIIe siècle. Pour la date, et pour la Guyane, le document est rare. La Guyane est en marge des Antilles dans les habitudes de vue des historiens français. En réalité entre les îles et les Guyanes les liens ont toujours été vivants. Les mêmes origines africaines de leur main d'oeuvre, en faisaient par bien des problèmes sociaux et économiques, un monde commun.


First paragraph roughly translated:
The opportunity comes to study a list of cayenne slaves in the late seventeenth century. To date, and for Guyana, the document is rare. Guyana is on the fringe of the West Indies in order to habits of French historians. In fact between the islands and the Guianas links have been alive. The same African roots of their workforce, made them in many social and economic problems, a common world.

Une branche des Sainte-Marthe aux îles au XVIIe siècle (separata)


Debien, Gabriel, Une branche des Sainte-Marthe aux îles au XVIIe siècle, Extrait du Bulletin de la Société des Antiquaires de l’Ouest, 1964.

Dans une de ses Chroniques de Poitiers aux XVe et XVIe siècle. Alfred Barbier assure en parlant des Sainte-Marthe "qu'il est rare de voir s'accumuler sur un même nom autant de titres à une legitime illustration." C'est aux Sainte-Marthe poète, médecin du roi, trésoriers de France, lieutenants généraux de la Sénéchaussée de Poitou, échevins de Poitiers ou généalogistes et historiens, qu'il pensait, et à leurs alliances, mais il laissant dans l'ombre une branche de cette famille qui ne mérite pas plus l'oubli que les rameaux plus illustres: la branche des Sainte-Marthe coloniaux. Voici une vue sommaire et quelques documents sur cette branche qui s'établit aux îles dans le dernier tiers du XVIIe siecle et qui essaima sans doute aussi au Canada. Elle est peu connue en Poitou.


Several sentences roughly translated:
In one of his Chronicles of Poitiers the fifteenth and sixteenth century, Alfred Barber ensures speaking of Sainte Marthe, "it is rare to see accumulate on one same name as many legitimate titles illustration." It is up to Sainte-Marthe poet, king's physician, treasurers of France, lieutenant-generals of the Seneschal of Poitou, aldermen of Poitiers or genealogists and historians, he thought, and their alliances, but leaving in the shadows a branch of this family deserves no more forgetting than most illustrious branches: the branch of colonial Sainte Marthe. Here is a summary view and some documents on that branch which is established in the islands in the last third of the seventeenth century and which spread probably also in Canada. It is little known in Poitou.

Disponible en línea.

M. Rennard, qui a longtemps été curé à la Martinique, étudie le passé le religieux de cette île depuis trente ans et plus. Il a vu les registres paroissiaux, les archives des fabriques, il connaît les traditions orales et chaque fois qu'il vient en France, c'est pour courir aux Archives Nationales ou à celles de la rue Oudinot. Il a même poussé jusqu'aux Archives de la Propagande à Rome.


Roughly translated:
“Dr. Rennard, who has long served as pastor in Martinique, studied the religious past of this island for thirty years or more. He saw the church records, factory archives, he knows the oral traditions and every time he comes to France, is to run (to) the National Archives or of Rue Oudinot. He even went to the Archives of the ‘Propagande’ in Rome.”

First few sentences roughly translated:
On peut bien parler d'un petit blanc en parlant de René Piet que nous allons voir par brefs éclairages. Il ne posséda jamais d'esclaves à Saint-Domingue, ni de boutique. A peine loua-t-il un moment un magasin au bord de la rade, au Cap. Il n'eut pas le temps de s'installer vraiment à la colonie, y resta un peu en marge. (…) Mais les années de René Piet à Saint Domingue representent bien la destinée d'une foule d'hommes qui allèrent aux îles chercher la fortune et n'y trouvèrent qu'une difficile aisance ou la misère, des dettes et la mort.

We can talk about a “petit blanc” René Piet we'll soon see for insights. He never possessed slaves in Saint Domingue or shop. Hardly had he rented for a moment a store on the edge of the harbor in Cap [Haitien?]. He had no time to really settle in the colony, stayed a little on the margin. (…) But the years of René Piet in Saint Domingue represent well the destiny of a crowd of men who went to the islands in search of fortune only to find but difficulties to ease poverty, debt and death.

From Saint-Domingue to Cuba with a family of refugees, the Tornézy, (first paragraph roughly translated):
Some letters from the family Tornézy evoke movements and misadventures of a young couple settlers in Saint Domingue (Haiti) and Cuba between 1800 and 1809. These letters are faded and are not numerous; but they are an echo of the years that saw disperse the settlers of Saint-Domingue, some taking refuge in the other islands or the mainland to keep as it could Creole their lifestyle, others definitely returning to France. It's a small world that resists before disappearing.


Quelques lettres venant de la famille Tornézy nous évoquent les mouvements et les mésaventures d'un jeune ménage de colons à Saint Domingue puis à Cuba entre 1800 et 1809. Ces lettres sont sans éclat et ne sont pas nombreuses; mais elles sont un écho des années qui virent se disperser les colons de Saint-Domingue, les uns se réfugiant dans les autres îles ou au continent pour garder autant qu'il se pouvait leur mode de vie créole, les autres rentrant définitivement en France. C'est un petit monde qui résiste avant de disparaître.


L'historien français Gabriel Debien fut le premier à signaler l'activité corsaire des réfugiés de Saint-Domingue à Santiago de Cuba19, où le gouverneur Juan Bautista Vaillant Berthier, arrivé en 1799, veut développer la partie orientale de l'île, les terres étant trois fois moins chères que dans la partie ouest.

The Loudunais in Acadia in the seventeenth century, (first paragraph roughly translated):
“Others will speak the language effectively working Ms. Massignon.” There can be no question here of what it brings to us again, and the more accurate it was, on the part Loudonais had played (in) the seventeenth century in the French settlement of Acadia, c 'is to say, the Atlantic coast of Canada, more than 1,000 kilometers from Quebec. "What Canadian scholars have tried to do ... for the French population of the Province of Quebec," Ms. Massignon has tried methodically to the Maritime Provinces, it clarified the correspondence from both sides of the ocean. It seems that one can thus establish the research program.
D'autres parleront pertinemment du travail linguistique de Melle Massignon. Il ne pourra être question ici que de ce qu'elle nous apporte de nouveau, et du plus précis qu'il se pouvait, sur la part qu'ont eue les Loudonais au XVIIe siècle dans le peuplement français de l'Acadie, c'est-à-dire de la côte atlantique du Canada, à plus de 1000 kilometres de Quebec. "Ce que les érudits canadiens ont tente de faire... pour la population française de la Province de Quebec", Melle Massignon l'a essayé méthodiquement pour les Provinces Maritimes, elle a précisé les correspondances de part et d'autre de l'Océan. Il semble que l'on puisse etablir ainsi le programme de ses recherches.

Extract:
The larger study of which this outline essay forms a part is concerned with the comparative study of economic systems. Following Myrdal and Seers, we have taken the view that economic theory in the underdeveloped regions at any rate, can profit by relaxing its unwitting pre-occupation with the special case of the North Atlantic countries, and by proceeding to a typology of structures each having characteristic laws of motion.

Extrait:
...Ce travail constitue donc une exploration de la rationalité dialectique des classifications raciales populaires au sein des populations métissées. Le degré de nécessité objective et subjective que comporte cette démarche est celui même de la réalité sociale. Il s'agit d'une nécessité contingente, jamais absolue mais "statistique" variable d'une société à l'autre, et mouvante au sein de la même société.
Nous avons retenu quatre cas pour lesquels nous disposons d'une documentation qui, sans être totalement satisfaisante, offre un support convenable à l'analyse: l'île de Saint-Domingue, la Grande Caïman, le Mexique et le Brésil.


Popular Racial Classifications and Mixing: An Essay in Cognitive Anthropology: ...This work is therefore an exploration of the dialectical rationality of popular racial classifications in the mestizo population. The degree of objective and subjective necessity involved in this approach is that the same social reality. This is a necessity contingent, never absolute but "statistically" variable from one society to another, and moving in the same society. We selected four cases for which we have documented that, while not totally satisfactory, offers a suitable support for the analysis: the island of Santo Domingo, Grand Cayman, Mexico and Brazil.

El coronel no tiene quien le escriba es una novela corta publicada por el escritor colombiano Gabriel García Márquez en 1961. Es una de las más célebres de las escritas por el autor, y su protagonista, un viejo coronel que espera la pensión que nunca llega, es considerado como uno de los personajes más entrañables de la literatura hispanoamericana del siglo XX.

No One Writes to the Colonel … is a novella written by the Colombian novelist and Nobel Prize in Literature winner Gabriel García Márquez. It also gives its name to a short story collection. (…)The novel, written between 1956–1957 and first published in 1961,[1] is the story of an impoverished, retired colonel, a veteran of the Thousand Days' War, who still hopes to receive the pension he was promised some fifteen years earlier. The colonel lives with his asthmatic wife in a small village under martial law. The action opens with the colonel preparing to go to the funeral of a town musician whose death is notable because he was the first to die from natural causes in many years. The novel is set during the years of "La Violencia" in Colombia, when martial law and censorship prevail.

Guatemala--Another Vietnam?


Melville, Thomas & Marjorie, Guatemala--another Vietnam?, Middlesex England: Penguin, 1971.

From the Editorial Foreword:
This is the story told by the Melvilles. It is of the first importance, not just for Guatemala, but also for all Latin America – where land reform remains the key to breaking the power of the continent’s oligarchic social structure. And of course the Melville’s story has a familiar ring, as the title suggests. In South Vietnam, in the areas liberated before 1954, the Viet Minh put through a land reform that expropriated the landlords. After 1954, when the Viet Minh withdrew, the government of Ngo Dinh Diem returned the land to the landlords. In this fertile soil, revolts grow. So too, in Guatemala, the land reform of Arbenz, once put into reverse, created conditions for rebellion.

The Defeat of John Hawkins: A Biography of his Third Slaving Voyage


Unwin, Rayner, The Defeat of John Hawkins: a biography of his third slaving voyage, London: Allen & Unwin, 1960.

Admiral Sir John Hawkins (also spelled as Hawkyns) (1532 – 12 November 1595) was an English naval commander and administrator, merchant, navigator, shipbuilder, pirate and slave trader. He was considered the first English trader to profit from the Triangle Trade, based on selling supplies to colonies ill-supplied by their home countries, and their demand for African slaves in the Spanish colonies of Santo Domingo and Venezuela in the late 16th century. He styled himself "Captain General" as the General of both his own flotilla's of ships and those of the English Royal Navy and to distinguish himself from those Admirals that served only in the administrative sense and were not military in nature. His death and that of his cousin and mentee, Sir Francis Drake heralded the decline of the Royal Navy for decades before its recovery and eventual dominance again helped by the propaganda of the Navy's glory days under his leadership.

Vasco Núñez de Balboa (c. 1475 – around January 12–21, 1519[1]) was a Spanish explorer, governor, and conquistador. He is best known for having crossed the Isthmus of Panama to the Pacific Ocean in 1513, becoming the first European to lead an expedition to have seen or reached the Pacific from the New World. He traveled to the New World in 1500 and, after some exploration, settled on the island of Hispaniola. He founded the settlement of Santa María la Antigua del Darién in present-day Panama in 1510, which was the first permanent European settlement on the mainland of the Americas (a settlement by Alonso de Ojeda the previous year at San Sebastián de Urabá had already been abandoned).

The nineteen articles reprinted in this volume are drawn mainly from New World Publications, and represent broadly the “new school” of political economy to emerge in the English –speaking Caribbean in the decade of the 1960’s.

Este trabajo se refiere a la religiosidad popular en Venezuela, en particular a la devoción a los “santos populares”, “animas” o “muertos milagrosos”, que hasta ahora no fue estudiada por folkloristas o antropólogos. Se trata de santos no reconocidos por la Iglesia Católica, canonizados espontáneamente por el pueblo. Encontramos la devoción a “animas” en todas partes de la república, especialmente en los Andes y en los Llanos, pero también en Caracas y las otras grandes ciudades.

Available at Forgotten Books.

From the author’s Foreword:
Nicholas Darnell Davis (1846-1915) was born in Grenada, and spent brief periods in Mauritius and Sierra Leone, but his main public career was in British Guiana [Guyana], where he served as Postmaster General (1876-1881), Comptroller of Customs (1881-1895), and Auditor-General (1895-1908). Davis had a life-long interest in the history of the West Indies and more specifically of Barbados, and this collection comprises a vast body of material gathered by him from archives in Britain, the Caribbean and Europe. He contributed many historical articles to newspapers and periodicals in British Guiana, Barbados and the United States. His intention to compose a comprehensive history of the West Indies was frustrated by ill health.

Le Commerce de l'épicerie à travers les âges


William, Germain, Le Commerce de l'épicerie à travers les âges: Conférence donnée ler septembre 1965 à la section guadeloupéenne du Centre des jeunes patrons, honorée d’une souscription des Chambres de Commerce et d’Industrie de Pointe-à-Pitre et de Basse-Terre.[deux exemplaires]

Excerpt:
L'Epicerie ne s'est, à aucune époque, arrêtée à la seule vente des épices. Les épiciers du Moyen Age étaient apothicaires, ciriers, confiseur, confituriers et ne vendaient qu'en gros. Le petit détaillant ou Regrattier vendait le pain, le fromage, les oignons, l'ail, les oeufs, la volaille, etc.

Actuellement, le commerce de l'épiciers s'est transformé: Il renferme l'alimentation générale, des produits ménagers de consommation courante, la boucherie, la boulangerie, la quincaillerie, etc.

Mais si vous les voulez bien, faisons en raccourci un voyage historique et voyons comment se pratiquait le commerce des épices dans l'antiquite.
(…)
De 1643 à 1759, Basse-Terre est le plus grand centre de l'activité commerciale de la Guadeloupe, après le Moule et Sainte-Anne. Elle perd de son importance vers 1763, dès fondation de la ville de Pointe-à-Pitre, qui, "par le sécurité de son port, devient la rade la plus fréquentée des Antilles."

From the introduction:
“Baka” is the second of a series in three books designed to project a vision of possibilities of meaning in what is loosely called “folklore”.
(…)
Perhaps the methodology of the book may be summed up in Sparrow’s significant comment to CLR James which James noted in “Party Politics in the West Indies”, known also as “P.N.M. Go Forward.” With slight emendation, Sparrow’s thoughts may be spelled out as follows: “If the words are wrong then the music is wrong. If the music is wrong then the words are wrong.”

In eleven letters this book tells the story of Jamaica as it was in 1842, a few years after the slaves had all become free men and women. In the first letter, James Capple, a Member of Parliament in England, asks his young nephew, Thomas, to visit Jamaica and find out what things are like on his sugar estate in St. Ann, and in other parts of the island. All the other ten letters are written by Thomas to his uncle and aunt telling them what he is doing in Jamaica and what he has discovered here.

The Western Design: An Account of Cromwell’s Expedition to the Caribbean


Taylor, S. A. G., The Western Design: An Account of Cromwell’s Expedition to the Caribbean, Kingston: Institute of Jamaica and the Jamaica Historical Society, 1965.

The Anglo–Spanish War was a conflict between the English Protectorate under Oliver Cromwell and Spain, between 1654 and 1660. It was caused by commercial rivalry. Each side attacked the other's commercial and colonial interests in various ways such as privateering and naval expeditions. In 1655, an English amphibious expedition invaded Spanish territory in the Caribbean. The major land actions took place in the Spanish Netherlands. In 1657, England formed an alliance with France, merging the Anglo–Spanish war with the larger Franco–Spanish War.

(…)

Jamaica was the casus belli that resulted in the actual Anglo-Spanish War in 1655.[5] Weakened by fever, the English force then sailed west for the Colony of Santiago (present day Jamaica), the only Spanish West Indies island that did not have new defensive works. They landed in May 1655 at a place called Santiago de la Vega, now Spanish Town. They came, and they stayed, in the face of prolonged local resistance that was reinforced by troops sent from Spain and New Spain (México). In 1657 the English Governor invited the Buccaneers to base themselves at Port Royal on Santiago, to deter the Spanish from recapturing the island. For England, Jamaica was to be the 'dagger pointed at the heart of the Spanish Empire,' although in fact it was a possession of little value then.[4] Cromwell, despite all difficulties, was determined that the presence should remain, sending reinforcements and supplies.

From the cover:
During the first three decades of the seventeenth century, the Dutch rose to a position of pre-eminence in the European exploitation of Southeast Asia. Mr. Masselman gives a graphic account of that rise from the building of the Holland dikes and the earliest Dutch efforts toward sea power to the consolidation of the influence of the United East India Company in the Indonesian Archipelago. The duels with England, Portugal, and Spain for control of the sea and trade, the exploration of sea routes to the Far East, the background history of Indonesia, and the birth there of capitalistic colonialism, are all examined. The dealings of the Dutch sailors and merchants who determined the character of early colonial policy and the documents on which their history is based are given more detailed treatment than has hitherto been available in English.

An Outline of Latin American Economic Development


Wythe, George, An Outline of Latin American Economic Development, (College Outline Series), New York: Barnes & Noble, Inc., 1946.

From the Preface:
The book is the outgrowth of lectures at The American university of Washington D.C., on the economic problems of Latin America. (…) Latin American economic development is here outlined on a topical basis rather than from the standpoint of the peculiarities of the economies of the twenty distinct republics. The author’s experience has been that this approach gives the student a better orientation and enables him to take up more3 intelligent advanced studies or investigations in connection with individual countries or specific problems. The book consists of an Introduction and four Parts. The Introduction aims to define the over-all position of Latin America in world economy. Part I is devoted to several basic concepts, such as the physical setting, population problems, and the general characteristics of economic development in Latin America. Part II takes up the major economic activities: agriculture; the mineral, forest, pastoral and manufacturing industries; transportation and communications; and credit unions. Part III is devoted to foreign commerce, its volume, composition, and direction, with special reference to the outlook and the possibilities of, and limitations on, the development of larger inter-American trade. In Part IV the evolution of a Pan-American commercial policy is outlined.

Aproximaciones a Bello


Sambrano Urdaneta, Oscar, Aproximaciones a Bello, Caracas: Casa del Escritor, 1977.

Charla pronunciada en la Asociación de Escritores Venezolanos el 29 de noviembre de 1976, con motivo de celebrarse el Día de Bello y el Día del Escritor.


Oscar Sambrano Urdaneta (February 6, 1929 – June 14, 2011[1]) was a Venezuelan writer, essayist and literary critic, specialized in the life and work of Andrés Bello. In 1978, he won the Municipal Prize of Literature for the work Poesía contemporánea de Venezuela.

Narciso Descubre Su Trasero: el negro en la cultura puertorriqueña


Zenón Cruz, Isabelo, Narciso descubre su trasero: el negro en la cultura puertorriqueña, Volumen 1, Humacao, Puerto Rico: Editorial Furidi, 1974. (firmado por el autor para el Dr. Mathews)

From Puerto Rico: The pleasures and traumas of race by ALAN WEST-DURÁN:
Thirty-seven years later Isabelo Zenón Cruz spoke of the hypocrisy of the expression negro puertorriqueñ¬o, where Puerto Rican has become an adjective. Why is a black Puerto Rican identified as black before he is considered Puerto Rican?, he sarcastically asks in his monumental two-volume study Narciso descubre su trasero [Narcissus Discovers his Backside]. Zenón Cruz’s painstaking analysis, more than 700 pages long, of historical documents, poems, literature, jokes, religion, lyrics to songs, and popular culture is a landmark study that perhaps not so curiously has been out of print for more than two decades.
