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. He served as the president of the Venezuelan Academy of Language, is an honorary member of the Caro y Cuervo Institute, and was president of the National Council of Culture (CONAC) in the late 1990s.

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 Zenón Cruz’s painstaking analysis, more than 700 pages long, of historical documents, poems, literature, jokes, religion, lyrics to songs, and popular culture is a landmark study that perhaps not so curiously has been out of print for more than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.

Frederick Alexander Kirkpatrick nació en Donacourper el 10 de junio de 1861 y es actualmente lector de español en la Universidad de Cambridge. Sus obras de historia hispanoamericana son fruto de una larga vida dedicada al estudio en archivos y bibliotecas, y a recorrer y vivir en los países que sirvieron de escenario a sus relatos. Esas obras le han dado justa celebridad por la objetividad, amenidad y método con que describe la vida de los hombres y de los países en las horas culminantes y en sus aspectos más esenciales. La inexistencia de un tomo que abarcase la historia del descubrimiento y conquista de América le animó a escribir la interesantísima obra titulada “Los conquistadores Españoles”, cuya tercera edición publica hoy la Colección Austral.

España Pintoresca; The Life and Customs of Spain in Story and Legend

Marcial Dorado, Carolina, España pintoresca; the life and customs of Spain in story and legend, Boston, Ginn & Co., 1917.

Available on-line.

Reviewed in The Modern Language Journal.

From the author’s Preface:
This book is for the use of students who have taken the first steps in the study of Spanish. It is meant to supply a need which the author has felt in teaching the language. Familiarity with a language and its literature is difficult to attain without the sympathy lent by an intimate understanding of the manners and customs of the people, and never were language and life more closely intertwined than in the vibrant heart of old Spain, where the passion and poetry of the race find expression in its ardent and melodious speech.

The Development of Hispanic America

Reviewed in The Catholic Historical Review © 1941.

From the Preface:
The volume is divided into two essential sections: the period from earliest times through the revolutions for independence, and the period since about 1824, including the international relations of the several countries. Thus, where two semesters are devoted to the subject of Hispanic American history, the first part may coincide with the first semester and the second part with the second semester. Where only one semester is allotted to the whole course of Hispanic American development, the teacher may select the points for emphasis from the book as a whole.

Antonio Perez, "Spanish Traitor"

Antonio Pérez (1540–1611) was a Spanish statesman, secretary of king Philip II of Spain. He was said to have organised the murder of Juan de Escobedo. Attempts to prosecute Perez led to riots and disorder. He eventually fled Spain after being liberated from prison by his supporters, and spent most of his remaining years in France.

Gregorio Marañón y Posadillo (19 May 1887 in Madrid – 27 March 1960 in Madrid) was a Spanish physician, scientist, historian, writer and philosopher. (...) An austere, humanist and liberal man, he is considered one of the most brilliant Spanish intellectuals of the 20th century. He also stands out for his elegant literary style. He was a Republican, fought the Miguel Primo de Rivera dictatorship though he later showed his disagreement with Spanish Communism.

This study was made possible through support from the Twentieth Century Fund of New York City. The author is deeply indebted to M.J. Rossant, Director of the Fund, and Carol Barker, of the Fund Research Staff, for their assistance and criticism. The study, conducted in late 1970 and early 1971, is based on information gathered through interviews with over 150 government and opposition leaders, businessmen and intellectuals of 26 states of the Caribbean. The author was denied a visa for entry into Cuba, so the Cuban interviews were limited to refugee leaders in Miami.

The Anglo-Spanish Struggle for Mosquitia

Floyd, Troy S., The Anglo-Spanish Struggle for Mosquitia, New Mexico: University of New Mexico Press, 1967.

Reviewed in Caribbean Studies © 1969.

From the book cover:
The author traces for the first time the history of the Anglo-Spanish struggle for the immense "Kingdom of Mosquitia," a struggle that began in the seventeenth century with the short naval war between the Spanish and the British Providence Company and ended during the War of the American Revolution with Spain's historic and little known return to Trujillo and her desperate and dramatic counterattacks to prevent England from splitting the Spanish Empire at the San Juan River. Although Professor Floyd emphasizes the military aspects of the rivalry, he also treats in detail the origins of the English alliance with the Sambo-Miskitos, the intricate connections between buccaneering , slave raids, and contraband, and the relations between the Spanish missionary movement and military offensive. From this account, it can be seen that Belize is only the ultimate compromise resulting from two centuries of warfare over a much larger area, and that the British encroachment in Central America during the nineteenth century maintained a traditional friendship with the Sambo-Miskitos and an ancient rivalry with the Spanish-speaking inhabitants.

The Brimstone Hill Fortress

Matheson, D.L., The Brimstone Hill Fortress, St. Kitts West Indies: The Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park Society, n.d.

The Brimstone Hill Fortress is of historical, cultural and architectural significance, a monument to the ingenuity of the British military engineers who designed it and supervised its construction and to the skill, strength and endurance of the African slaves who built and maintained it. In some of its architectural features, notably the Citadel, are expressed elements of different stages of fortress design; it is an embodiment of European imperialism, and the emergence of a distinctive Caribbean culture. It is indicative of the competition for power and wealth at a crucial stage in world history.
