This is a book that shows how Spain's most important contemporary writer, Javier Marías, has engaged with literature in English during his career. Marías has won multiple national and international awards, and is considered among the best writers working today. He has explained many times that working as a translator of literary works from English into Spanish helped shape the writer he became and this study explores those claims by analysing twothings: firstly, his translations themselves, scrutinized closely to determine their accuracy and flair; and secondly, seeing how those translations have left discernible traces in his own fiction, either through therecurrence of particular phraseology or evidence of a more largescale aesthetic debt; an example of the latter explored in this study would be Marías's decision to write a pseudo-autobiographical novel in much the same digressive and chaotic vein as Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy.

A continuation of 1994’s groundbreaking Cartoons, Giannalberto Bendazzi’s Animation: A World History is the largest, deepest, most comprehensive text of its kind, based on the idea that animation is an art form that deserves its own place in scholarship. Bendazzi delves beyond just Disney, offering readers glimpses into the animation of Russia, Africa, Latin America, and other often-neglected areas and introducing over fifty previously undiscovered artists. Full of first-hand, never before investigated, and elsewhere unavailable information, Animation: A World History encompasses the history of animation production on every continent over the span of three centuries. Volume II delves into the decades following the Golden Age, an uncertain time when television series were overshadowing feature films, art was heavily influenced by the Cold War, and new technologies began to emerge that threatened the traditional methods of animation. Take part in the turmoil of the 1950s through 90s as American animation began to lose its momentum and the advent of television created a global interest in the art form. With a wealth of new research, hundreds of photographs and film stills, and an easy-to-navigate organization, this book is essential reading for all serious students of animation history.
