Using feminist revisions of psychoanalytic thought and cultural studies, "Mothers, Lovers, and Others examines the pervasive role of the conception of the feminine in the short stories of Argentine writer Julio Cort Azar (1914-1984). Contending that his obsession with the mother is the source of CortAzar's uneasiness with femininity, Cynthia SchmidtCruz traces an evolution in his relationship to female space, from a convoluted and defensive posture to a more open and tolerant stance, paralleling his increasing political commitment. Schmidt-Cruz explores the role of gender in CortAzar's quest to reconcile his divided allegiance to Argentina and France, and his denunciation of the atrocities of the Argentine military dictatorship.
