Bodies, Texts, and Ghosts aims to promote the dialogue between Hispanic Atlantic cultures by exploring legal and literary texts from a cross-cultural perspective, while also taking into account the theoretical contributions of spectral criticism. Marrero-Fente argues that a transatlantic approach provides a broader framework to rethink the ways in which literature and law have been formulated. According to Marrero-Fente, adopting a transatlantic perspective offers a method of thinking across geographical borders, which allows readers to examine in-depth the reciprocal cultural exchange between Spain and Spanish America during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Through an interdisciplinary approach, the author studies how the different discursive formations of the colonial period represent racial, gender, and cultural differences on both sides of the Atlantic. This innovative approach to Hispanic studies creates new possibilities of interpretation, including the adoption of a global perspective in the field of colonial Latin American studies.

About the Author:

Raúl Marrero-Fente is associate professor of Spanish and law at the University of Minnesota. His research focuses on colonial Latin America, transatlantic studies, and human rights. He is the author of Epic, Empire, and Community in the Atlantic World: Silvestre de Balboa's Espejo de Paciencia.

Review:

This is an essential volume for anyone interested in the epic discourse produced during the colonial period in Spanish America. Marrero-Fente demonstrates its pervasive influence in the construction of colonial knowledge and in the production of culture. More importantly, he illustrates its multi-generic manifestations that are often ignored and essential to the understanding of colonial violence, human agency, and the many forms of imperialism practiced in the Spanish territories. (Santa Arias, University of Kansas)
