The Globe Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz Analysis

Good Essays
There is a myriad of historical ideas that surprised me during this reading. My top three surprising historical highlights are The Globe, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, and the Spanish theatre, corrales. Throughout my whole learning experiences, I have never come across the corrales. Usually, I would learn about how Spanish is very religious based and how they are very well-known for discovering New Worlds. I would always hear Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan. I never really learned about the Spanish theatres nor dramas. I did not know that they had to license their plays and that they have an expiration date on them. I thought they were allowed to perform plays as long as it’s religious based and in the church.

    1. Two historical events that I observed in the museum were the California Gold Rush and The Signing of the California Land Claims Act. The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought large numbers of new immigrants from Mexico, Central American and South America to California. The presence of gold made California tremendously valuable to the United States. The Gold Rush funded money for the union to buy supplies and fire arms for its military. The Gold Rush stood out to me because of all the back ground information and analyzing we did in class and its importance in both Mexican and American History. The second event I observed was the signing of the California Land Claims Act, after the Mexican American War, Mexican American land owners in United States territory began to lose their land at an alarming pace. Either through fraud or force, Mexicans living in United States regions were often stripped of their rights to their land. This act really stuck me on how unfair our government was to our own people and how the government can abuse its power.…

    The author believes that this one in particular succeeds in circumventing its own polemical potential and is set apart from other similar works because of its optimistic act of consciousness-raising. One of the works, the “Truth Trophy” challenges the assumption that surround the ordering and presentation of history. In the middle of this installation is a globe contained in Plexiglas. On one side of the globe there are three white pedestals with sculptures of white historical figures. On the other side there are three empty black pedestals.

    In history, there are two sides to every story – the side of the “victor” and that of the “loser.” Often times, historical interpretations of past events and eras have an altered or biased view of the world that fails to rightfully acknowledge those who had been oppressed or conquered – those on the “losing” side. The film, La Otra Conquista, aims to dispel myths and hyperbolic interpretations of the Spanish conquest of the Americas that place the Spanish as the only winners. Using emotionally driven cinematography (with a killer soundtrack to match) and an almost painfully accurate portrayal of historical events, the writer and director Salvador Carrasco enlightens his viewers to “the other conquest,” and opens their minds to the several underlying themes conscious during the conquest. By means of symbolism, the film explores an overarching sense duality, parallelism, and resistance found among the two cultures – a friction between two competing interests that fear, as the plot illustrates, that they are not too different after all. Within this context of duality, the film occupies the role of historical revisionist seeking to reinterpret the conquest as one event with two distinctly separate outcomes. Furthermore, the film uses historical reference to comment on the role of women, bureaucracy, and interpretation/language in Colonial Latin America. The following analysis will explore the topics central not only to the film itself, but to the era.…

    Now why would we want to reexamine everything that we had been taught regarding the seemingly great explorer Christopher Columbus? Possibly, because the Columbus story much closer resembles a work of fiction, than that of a factual portrayal of the discovery of our country. This is nothing more than a grandiose myth. One that should not be taken lightly, as it very well could have serious ramifications. This innocent, seeming tale is often a child’s first lesson concerning encounters amid contradictory cultures and races. Consequently, it lays a foundation for a child’s beliefs about society. This vague, romanticized legend of a heroic voyager tells children whose interpretation of history to accept, and whose to disregard.…

    A story that generally remains the same, is that of Columbus’ discovery of the Americas. It is engrained into the minds of American children at a very age that ‘in fourteen-hundred-and-ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.’ We even gave him a national holiday to celebrate his accomplishment. However, it was not until I took English 3360: Survey of American Literature, Beginnings to 1865, that I was exposed to first-hand accounts of his arrival to the continent. One focus of the course was that of the discovery, conquest, settlement, and the literature of New Spain. It was in this section that we read Columbus’ letter to Luis de Santangel, in which he nonchalantly explains how he has found many islands that he has easily taken possession of because the inhabitants offer no resistance. He gloats how the natives have no way to defend themselves and how they still offer gifts to he and his men despite that he has enslaved some of them. (Columbus, 1493) Letters like Columbus’ and Cortes’ back to the Spanish crown shed a whole new light on the man and event that many of school children have put on plays about. It also extends some understanding to the experiences of the Native Americans and Pilgrims approximately 185 years…

    How society describes what is meant by a man's role is an important definition in every culture. What is right or wrong for men to do in terms of behavior depends on each community, and on people's own perceptions. Latin American culture has a strict set of values on sexual issues, reflecting a man's role in society. For all of the communities in Latin America there exists a relation between a man's role and machismo. The exaggerated sense of manliness that machismo stands for is evident by parents when raising their male children, and by communities and their expectations. Machismo represents a culture of traditions indeed, but how does machismo define the role of a man in his society?…

    Spanish Worldview

    This category is telling you a little bit about the knowledge part of worldview for the Spanish. The first artifact is a torture tool from the Spanish inquisition or the reconquista the torture tool I am using is the rack the Spanish were really knowledgeable when it came to this. The rack consists of a rectangular, wooden frame, slightly raised from the ground, with a roller at one, or both, ends, at one end a fixed bar to which the legs are fastened, and at the other a movable bar to which the hands are tied. The victim's feet are fastened to one roller, and the wrists are chained to the other. This is a very complicated torture tool that really explains how knowledgeable the Spanish could be when it came to getting their way. The second artifact is the idea of the voyage I am representing this with the ship and the map. To explain a typical Spanish voyage I am using an example of what Christopher Columbus had to go through. First you must go to the royal castle to see Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand to beg for the chance to get money for your voyage [a ship and a crew]. If you make it past that you must make sure you have everything you need if the king and queen can’t supply you with a crew you must find one what Christopher Columbus did was use the Jew and Muslim prisoners from the inquisition. Plus you have the stress of making sure you bring something back for the king and queen or else you will be in trouble. This showed their knowledge because it is giving you a glimpse of the things they did to get gold and resources to become rich and powerful country.…

    I agree with Martinez’s point of view. I think every mother and father want to live nearby their children. They love their kids so much. They want their kids live in the places where safety, have education and economic development. They try to find the best way to make their children have the happy life. If they cannot bring their kids to the United States, they know the kids will be killed in someday. In El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, every day the number of the kids between 15 and 24 of ages was killed are increasing. They are the parents, so they cannot stop worrying about their children if their kids still live there. However, they are illegal immigrants, and they live without paper and undocumented, so they cannot bring their children…

    Between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries, a countless number of European explorers navigated the globe in search of new lands and new treasures. The era, known as The Age of Discovery, gave fame to some of history’s greatest seafarers—Ferdinand Magellan, Vasco da Gama, and John Cabot to name but a few. Of all the great explorers, though, none are as celebrated as Christopher Columbus—the man who “discovered” America.…

    In the text, Pocho, by Jose Antonio Villarreal, education plays an important role of explaining the characteristics of the immigrants during the 1930’s. Education is one way for readers to have an experience of what they have been through. During the investigation between the protagonist Richard and sheriff, Richard speaks out some words that the sheriff does not understand. Villarreal writes, “ You mean homosexual? No, he wasn’t- this was a new word to the man. He was on the force because his sister had married a man who had something to do with the Chief of Police… Goddamn! Where’d you learn the big word?” (Villarreal, 89). This is an example of education because here the sheriff is investigating Richard by asking him for information about Joe Pete Manoel. Richard responds with a big word “homosexual” to the sheriff that he did not understand. This is a highlight of the time period when it does not need any education to be a patrolman in Santa Clara.…

    This proved to be fitting to the time in which Cervantes lived, for at the time he wrote Don Quixote, the golden age of Spain was declining, along with the arts that had long been celebrated in the country’s culture. The stories that this book combats are perfect examples of this decline, much like the dark ages of the 14th century.…
