Con­struc­tions in Span­ish
BuchcoverCon­struc­tions in Span­ish is the first book-length Eng­lish-lan­guage vol­ume in the field of usage-based and Cog­ni­tive Con­struc­tion Gram­mar ded­i­cat­ed exclu­sive­ly to Span­ish. The con­tri­bu­tions inves­ti­gate a wide range of con­struc­tions from both a syn­chron­ic and a diachron­ic per­spec­tive, cut­ting across mor­phol­o­gy, syn­tax, seman­tics and prag­mat­ics. The con­struc­tion­ist per­spec­tive is also linked to com­par­a­tive and typo­log­i­cal research, to lan­guage learn­ing and teach­ing and to mul­ti-modal dis­course analy­sis.
The vol­ume aims both at increas­ing the vis­i­bil­i­ty of con­struc­tion­ist approach­es to Span­ish, and at offer­ing data and analy­ses of Span­ish for schol­ars work­ing on con­struc­tion­al analy­ses of oth­er lan­guages. The vol­ume thus address­es both schol­ars in Span­ish and Romance lin­guis­tics, as it builds con­nec­tions between more tra­di­tion­al approach­es and con­struc­tion­ist approach­es, and con­struc­tion gram­mar­i­ans gen­er­al­ly, espe­cial­ly schol­ars inter­est­ed in com­par­a­tive work.

Dante in Deutsch­land: an itin­er­ary of Roman­tic myth
BuchcoverAround the turn of the nine­teenth cen­tu­ry, no task seemed more urgent to Ger­man Roman­tics than the cre­ation of a new mythol­o­gy. It would unite mod­ern poets and grant them com­mon ground, and bring philoso­phers and the Volk clos­er togeth­er. But what would a new mythol­o­gy look like? Only one mod­el suf­ficed, accord­ing to Friedrich Schlegel: Dante’s Divine Com­e­dy. Through read­ing and jux­ta­pos­ing canon­i­cal and obscure texts, Dante in Deutsch­land shows how Dante’s work shaped the devel­op­ment of Ger­man Roman­ti­cism; it argues, all the while, that the weight of Dante’s influ­ence induced a Roman­tic pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with author­i­ty: Who was autho­rized to cre­ate a mythol­o­gy? This question—traced across texts by Schelling, Novalis, and Goethe—begets a Neo-Roman­tic fix­a­tion with Dan­tean author­i­ty in the myth­ic ven­tures of Ger­hart Haupt­mann, Rudolf Bor­chardt, and Ste­fan George. Only in Thomas Mann’s nov­els, DiMas­sa asserts, is the Roman­tics’ Dan­tean project ulti­mate­ly demythol­o­gized.
