Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic of gothic literature follows the Pyncheon family in pre- and post-colonial New England, in their ancestral home; the titular House of the Seven Gables. Published... More > in 1851 at the height of the Gothic fiction craze, Hawthorne's book follows two time frames: one involves flashbacks to the late 17th century, while the other is set in the author's present day of the mid-19th century. We witness the events leading up to the Salem witch trials, and the construction of a house which came to epitomise the foreboding gloom of late Gothic architecture. We hear how the very construction of the house was unjust, the land was seized from its rightful owner via cynical accusations of witchcraft. The newly-built mansion is thought to harbor a curse when Colonel Pyncheon dies during its housewarming party. Thereafter this event overshadows the lives of the Pyncheon family members, who begin to feel the house and its grim legacy weigh on their shoulders.< Less

When I first started investigating Nancy’s ancestors, she simply asked me if I could find out any information about her paternal grandfather, Ike Parker. Other than his untimely death prior to... More > 1920, she knew very little else. I soon discovered a total lack of information was available for this individual in my usual sources. This lack of success spurred me to investigate deeper. What I found was a vast trove of family information about all of Nancy’s ancestors but still very little on the elusive Parkers. But perseverance paid off and I was able to get back one generation further of her Great-grandfather Madison Henry Parker, born in Tennessee around 1827. The Parker information, together with al of other family information, provided a panoramic view of the British immigration to the United States, both in the Colonial and post-colonial periods. This labor of love for a dear friend has resulted in this manuscript. My hope is for her family and friends to enjoy it!< Less

El fragmento posee su propia agencia, tanto reflexiva como arbitraria: delimita las instancias y las fugas del lenguaje, al tiempo que descubre su propio vacío. Carlos Alexander Cancio... More > transita a través del contexto postcolonial y globalizado del lacerante presente puertorriqueño para intentar atrapar y apalabrar el fragmento. Aquí asistimos a un meticuloso y riguroso análisis de los parámetros construidos por una realidad fractal que irradia de la pulsión y el espejo de ese mismo fragmento.
