This article was researched in part while visiting the University of Athens, Hellas as a Fulbright Scholar and parts were presented as a lecture at the University of Leipzig and the Technical University at Chemnitz, German Fulbright Lecture Series, in the spring of 2003. I am grateful for the support of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars and the Fulbright Foundation. In addition, I acknowledge the support of the Alfred J. Bonomo Sr. family and the Rosario La Nasa Memorial Scholarship Fund, and I thank Elizabeth Sconzert for research assistance. My colleagues Kathryn Venturatos Lorio, Nancy Anderson and Barbara Ewell enjoy my sincere appreciation for their insights and comments.
