The Museo Nacional de Costa Rica is the national museum of Costa Rica, located in the capital of San José. The fortress was built in 1917 and was originally a military barracks: the exterior walls still have many bullets lodged in them from the country's 1948 civil war. It became the site of the museum in 1950. The National Museum was originally encouraged by the project of "order and progress," which reorganized the national culture through educational changes and the development of institutions with specific cultural and scientific purposes.
Jean-Pierre Melville (1917 – 1974) is one of the most revered French film directors of all time. Born in Paris during WW1, he was to become a member of the French resistance in the Second World War, an experience which he drew on in his later career as a film director, routinely plunging his characters into an underworld of secrecy and deception. The reluctant godfather of the French New Wave, Melville’s highly individual style was influenced by the ideas of existentialism and surrealism, but arguably his greatest debt was to classical American cinema, the traditions of which he wove with inimitable style into his quintessentially French films. Hailed by many as the father of the French gangster movie, he was inspired by the classic film noirs of 1930s and 40s Hollywood, imbuing many his films with a sense of menace and impending peril, creating a sinister underworld to be traversed by his ubiquitous gun-toting hoodlums. This set contains six of his finest films, from his early bittersweet masterpiece, Bob Le Flambeur, to his final film, Un flic, his wonderfully fatalistic study of loss and deception; a fitting epitaph to one of the finest careers in contemporary cinema.

Augusto Roa Bastos, (June 13, 1917 April 26, 2005) was a noted Paraguayan novelist and short story writer, and one of the most important Latin American writers of the 20th century. As a teenager he fought in the Chaco War between Paraguay and Bolivia, and he later worked as a journalist, screenwriter and professor.

Yo el Supremo is one of the foremost Latin American novels to tackle the topic of the dictator. It explores the dictations and inner thoughts of Dr. José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia, who ruled Paraguay with an iron fist and no little eccentricity from 1814 until his death in 1840. Roa Bastos'' life and writing were marked by military dictators. In 1947 he was forced into exile in Argentina by the Paraguayan dictator Alfredo Stroessner, and in 1976 he fled Buenos Aires for France in similar political circumstances.
In den vergangenen Jahren bemüht sich die Literaturwissenschaft, die Bezüge zwischen den USA und Lateinamerika zu erforschen. Dennoch ist die Wirkung der US-amerikanischen Autoren auf die lateinamerikanische Literatur noch nicht umfassend eingeschätzt. So liegt der Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit auf der Analyse der Rezeption des US-amerikanischen Autors Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) in der literarischen und philosophischen Moderne in Lateinamerika. Emerson ist ein Denker der intellektuell-kulturellen Emanzipation der USA und ein Vordenker der internationalen Moderne. Für seine Ideen interessierten sich in einem bisher nicht hinreichend eingeschätzten Maß modernistische Autoren Lateinamerikas, um ein neues Selbstverständnis, das sich nach den Unabhängigkeitserklärungen im 19. Jahrhundert in der Moderne stellte, zu entwerfen. José Martí (1853-1895) und José Enrique Rodó (1871-1917), zwei der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller des modernismo und Denker der intellektuellen-kulturellen Emanzipation in Lateinamerika, zählten zu den Lesern von Emersons Werken.
