Latin-American Women Writers: Class, Race, and Gender
This book provides a much needed grouping of Latin-American women, emphasizing their differences--the diversity of their cultural backgrounds, socio-economic conditions, and literary strategies--as well as their commonalities. Humble writers of the Spanish and Portuguese testimonio and sophisticated postmodernist authors alike are contextualized within a "matriheritage of founding discourses."
