Book Description State University of New York Press, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Disenchantments of Love, published in Spain in 1647 by Maria de Zayas, is a stunning collection of stories about women's amorous experiences in a patriarchal and imperialistic society during the turbulent seventeenth century. Now available for the first time in English translation, the ten exemplary novelas are set within an encompassing frame story that continues from the first collection, The Enchantments of Love: Amorous and Exemplary Novels, published in 1637. These sensational and bizarre tales focus on the ways lovers deceive women in order to "get their way, " through magic, cross-dressing as women, and rape - to the torture and murder of innocent women at the hands of their protectors - their fathers, brothers, and husbands. A fascinating dimension of these fast-paced narratives is what they suggest through omission, silence, and ambiguous detail: the untold story that fires the reader's imagination.

Book Description State University of New York Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 416 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.8in.Published in 1647, these ten tales are among the earliest narratives in Western literature to focus on womens experiences and points of view in love relationships. The Disenchantments of Love, published in Spain in 1647 by Maria de Zayas, is a stunning collection of stories about womens amorous experiences in a patriarchal and imperialistic society during the turbulent seventeenth century. Now available for the first time in English translation, the ten examplary novellas are set within an encompassing frame story that continues from the first collection, The Enchantments of Love: Amorous and Exemplary Novels, published in 1637. Both collections of love stories were immediately popular because of the novelty of their plots and the gender of their author. What is new in the disenchantments is the deliberately feminist purpose stated in the rules for telling stories: only women are to narrate true cases intended to disenchant women about mens deceptions, pointedly denying men the opportunity to dominate the storytelling. In the frame, however, the subtly ironic commentaries on the stories highlight the differences between masculine and feminine points of view. The conclusion of the frame reiterates the exemplary message that women are safe from mens physical and psychological abuse only in the sisterhood of the convent. These ten sensational and bizarre tales focus on the ways lovers deceive women in order to get their way, through magic, cross dressing as women, and rape--to the torture and murder of innocent women at the hands of their protectors--their fathers, brothers, and husbands. The graphic depictions of womens multilated bodies are unprecedented in Western literature, as is the meticulous description of domestic violence that has traditioanlly remained private and hidden. A fascinating dimension of these fast-paced narratives is what they suggest through omission, silence, and ambiguous detail: the untold story that fires the readers imagination.
