In this study my aim has been to trace the development of the art in dialogue of Juan Ruis de Alarcón y Mendoza. In a survey of the Alarconian theatre I have attempted to attain an insight into the technique of his dramatic speech and to indicate the sources of potent influence exerted on the dramaturgic skill of this author.
The purpose of this thesis is to make a study of the third and fourth series of the Episodios nacionales. The study will deal with the plot structure, the characterization, and the historicity of the twenty novels which make up the two series.
This thesis, then, has evolved out of the need for such study and will deal specifically with the novels of the first two series of the Episodios Nacionales. It will be an attempt to present a preliminary survey of the most important characters, both major and minor, to present a composite picture of the story and plots within the two series of novels, and to indicate the relation of the influences pointed out in the preceding pages.
In this work, superficial to the extreme, it is my purpose to offer a review of the development of lyric poetry ("poesía lírica") in Colombia throughout its history. It is logical that because of the extent of the subject it is not possible to give a complete treatment of our political history, though I have tried not to leave out points of significance. The classification of authors and of poems, as well as the division of periods I have made arbitrarily, guided by my own criteria. Thus, I have the Romantic period divided into romanticism and post-romanticism, according to the dates generally regarded as the beginning and end of these two literary movements. In reality, romanticism only ended with the beginning of modernism, and one cannot therefore distinguish romantic poets from post-romantic poets. Due to the nature of this thesis, many poets--some of them well known--will not be mentioned. However, my intention is not to write a lyric anthology, but to reveal the spirit of Columbia through her poets and her poetry.
This thesis presents a brief background of poetry in Mexico in the nineteenth century, along with a biography of Manuel Gutiérrez Nájera and a study of his three poetic periods: 1876-1886, 1886-1890, 1890-1895.
