9780786471270: Isabel Allende: A Literary Companion (Mcfarland Literary Companions)

Isabel Allende--"la Famosa" to her fellow Chileans--is the world's most widely read Spanish language author. Her career coincides with the emergence of multiculturalism and global feminism, and her powerfully honest, revelatory works touch the pulse points of humankind. Her bravura study of the interwoven roles of women in family history opens the minds of outsiders to the sufferings of women and their children during years of social and political nightmare. This reference work provides an introduction to Allende's life as well as a guided overview of her body of work. Designed for the fan and scholar alike, this text features an alphabetized, fully-annotated listing of major terms in the Allende canon, including fictional characters, motifs, historical events and themes. A comprehensive index is included.

About the Author:

Mary Ellen Snodgrass is an award-winning author of textbooks and reference works, including a number of volumes in the McFarland Literary Companions series.

From Booklist:

Part of the McFarland Literary Companion series, this is a scholarly and expertly crafted study guide and tribute to the works of Isabel Allende. Widely recognized as one of the finest writers of our time, Allende is best known for her insights on Latin America, multiculturalism, and global feminism. Author Snodgrass has written several titles for the series, and she clearly both understands and treasures great literature. The alphabetically arranged subject entries cover various themes, such as death, evil, mothering, nativism, and superstition. These entries are rich in relevant historical detail, insightful literary criticism, and reflections on Allende’s place among contemporary writers of serious fiction. As a typical example, the superstition entry discusses Allende’s references to the supernatural, provides citations to specific works, places Allende’s treatment of superstition in cultural context, and offers comparisons to the work of other literary figures. In addition to thematic entries, Snodgrass provides her readers with highly readable and engaging essays on specific Allende writings. Extra features in this title include a 20-page Allende chronology, a genealogy, a brief glossary, a historical time line of the Allende canon, teaching activities, a bibliography, and an exhaustive index. Isabel Allende: A Literary Companion is an erudite, affectionate, and wonderfully rich treatment of Isabel Allende and her work. Any academic or public library that offers her literature should add it to the circulating collection. --Art A. Lichtenstein
