"Subversive Silences" asserts that throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Latin American women writers have appropriated the notion of submissive silence and inverted it to constitute a sign of women's rebellion against the passive silence imposed by patriarchy. The book illustrates how seven contemporary Hispanic women writers employ silence thematically and stylistically in the form of implicit narrative strategies, such as hyperbole, irony, parody, and cultural symbol, to create a feminist perspective in their texts.
