"Los albigenses, a quienes el papa Inocencio III, el hombre más poderoso de su tiempo, exterminó porque le enrostraban sus riquezas, llamaron a la Iglesia de Roma “la puta de Babilonia”, tomando la expresión del Apocalipsis. Dos milenios lleva delinquiendo, impune, abusando de la credibilidad del rebaño y gozando de su impúdica riqueza. La puta de Babilonia, por lo pronto, le levanta el sumario de sus más grandes crímenes, cuestionando de paso la existencia de un Ser Supremo que de existir los ha permitido, sin que haya servido hasta ahora en lo más mínimo el sacrificio de su Único Hijo."--Page 4 of cover.

"En este ensayo se aborda de un modo novedoso un tema poco estudiado del modernisno hispanoamericano, la novela decadente. A partir de la teoría queer y del psicoanálisis se abordan temas como la autobiografía, las representaciones del cuerpo y el erotismo, en un corpus de novelas hispanoamericanas del fin de siècle. Eros pervertido sostiene al menos dos tesis. El decadentismo hispanoamericano fue, además de una ética y una retórica, fundamentalmente, una erótica. Y como toda erótica era adverso a la moral establecida. Hacía peligrar las costumbres y el orden social al amenazar la estabilidad del matrimonio y proclamar el placer fuera de la procreación. La autora propone, además, que la novela decadente hispanoamericana puede haber sido una forma de resistencia a la medicalización de la sexualidad, un pequeño obstáculo en la constitución del reinado de eso que Foucault llamó scientia sexualis."--Back cover.

When Oscar Wilde was convicted of gross indecency in 1895, a reporter for the National Observer wrote that there was "not a man or a woman in the English-speaking world possessed of the treasure of a wholesome mind who is not under a deep debt of gratitude to the marquis of Queensberry for destroying the high Priest of the Decadents." But reports of the death of decadence were greatly exaggerated, and today, more than one hundred years after the famous trial and at the beginning of a new millennium, the phenomenon of decadence continues to be a significant cultural force. Indeed, "decadence" in the nineteenth century, and in our own period, has been a concept whose analysis yields a broad set of associations. In Perennial Decay, Emily Apter, Charles Bernheimer, Sylvia Molloy, Michael Riffaterre, Barbara Spackman, Marc Weiner, and others extend the critical field of decadence beyond the traditional themes of morbidity, the cult of artificiality, exoticism, and sexual nonconformism. They approach the question of decadence afresh, reevaluating the continuing importance of late nineteenth-century decadence for contemporary literary and cultural studies.

Decadence and Catholicism

Romantic writers had found in Christianity a poetic cult of the imagination, an assertion of the spiritual quality of beauty in an age of vulgar materialism. The decadents, a diverse movement of writers, were the climax and exhaustion of this romantic tradition. In their art, they enacted the romance of faith as a protest against the dreariness of modern life. Ellis Hanson teases out two strands--eroticism and aestheticism--that rendered the decadent interest in Catholicism extraordinary. More than any other literary movement, the decadents explored the powerful historical relationship between homoeroticism and Roman Catholicism. Why, throughout history, have so many homosexuals been attracted to Catholic institutions that vociferously condemn homosexuality? This perplexing question is pursued in this elegant and innovative book. Late-nineteenth-century aesthetes found in the Church a peculiar language that gave them a means of artistic and sexual expression. The brilliant cast of characters that parades through this book includes Oscar Wilde, Charles Baudelaire, J.-K. Huysmans, Walter Pater, and Paul Verlaine. Art for these writers was a mystical and erotic experience. In decadent Catholicism we can glimpse the beginnings of a postmodern valorization of perversity and performativity. Catholicism offered both the hysterical symptom and the last hope for paganism amid the dullness of Victorian puritanism and bourgeois materialism.

"By legitimizing a stark, one-size-fits-all industrial model of education, the No Child Left Behind legislation has denied the inherent complexity and richness of what teachers do. Discussing teaching in terms of chaos theory, Dexter Chapin explains that while excellent teaching may occur at the edge of chaos, it is not chaotic. There are patterns common to master teachers that connect the components of effective teaching to give meaning and stability to the classroom, allowing master teachers to get up morning after morning and make a genuine, positive difference in students' lives. Master Teachers presents teaching as a complex, adaptive exercise undertaken at the edge of chaos where creativity and invention are maximized."--BOOK JACKET.

* National Bestseller and winner of the 2014 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award * Hailed by Edmund White as "a brilliant new novel" on the cover of the New York Times Book Review * Lauded by Jonathan Franzen, E. L. Doctorow and many others From a global literary star comes a prize-winning tour de force – an intimate portrayal of the drug wars in Colombia. Juan Gabriel Vásquez has been hailed not only as one of South America’s greatest literary stars, but also as one of the most acclaimed writers of his generation. In this gorgeously wrought, award-winning novel, Vásquez confronts the history of his home country, Colombia. In the city of Bogotá, Antonio Yammara reads an article about a hippo that had escaped from a derelict zoo once owned by legendary Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. The article transports Antonio back to when the war between Escobar’s Medellín cartel and government forces played out violently in Colombia’s streets and in the skies above. Back then, Antonio witnessed a friend’s murder, an event that haunts him still. As he investigates, he discovers the many ways in which his own life and his friend’s family have been shaped by his country’s recent violent past. His journey leads him all the way back to the 1960s and a world on the brink of change: a time before narco-trafficking trapped a whole generation in a living nightmare. Vásquez is “one of the most original new voices of Latin American literature,” according to Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa, and The Sound of Things Falling is his most personal, most contemporary novel to date, a masterpiece that takes his writing—and will take his literary star—even higher.
