Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Killing Carmens is the first book on women's crime writing from Spain and offers a new approach to Spanish crime fiction, combining literary criticism with sociological and criminological theory. This multidisciplinary study analyses how female authors use crime and detective genres to analyse the role and position of their countrywomen.The volume demonstrates how female Spanish writers subvert aspects of various crime sub-genres to examine key topics of interest to them as women.The author shows how the figure of the female detective has been used at different times to articulate a feminist ideology or to reflect on the contemporary post-feminist environment. With reference to Spanish and international gendered criminology she also discusses how writers use the crime novel to investigate the very high number of women murdered or subjected to other violence in Spain each year. A final section shows how in Catalonia female authors have used this type of literature to consider crimes against women and crimes perpetrated against Catalan culture and political autonomy.The detective genre, or novela negra, is one of Spain's most popular types of fiction: books by many female writers have achieved best selling status and have been translated into several languages. Killing Carmens considers them as gendered social commentary, rather than just as literary texts. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The detective genre, or novela negra, is one of Spain’s most popular types of fiction: these books, many written by female writers, have obtained best-selling status and been translated into multiple languages. Killing Carmens, the first book-length study of women’s crime writing in Spain, offers a fresh approach to the study of Spanish crime fiction—combining literary criticism with sociological, feminist, and criminological theory. This innovative multidisciplinary volume examines how Spanish female authors have engaged with the traditionally masculine genre of crime writing, turning it into a literary form that has been used to address issues of particular concern to women in Spanish society, including debates about nationalism, gendered violence, and the role and position of their countrywomen. The result is a thought-provoking and fascinating read that will appeal to students of Hispanic and Catalan literature, as well as gender and cultural studies.

About the Author: Shelley Godsland is senior lecturer in Spanish at Birmingham University and director of the Crime Fiction Research Center.

Book Description University of Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An innovative and best-selling addition to contemporary peninsular literature, crime fiction by Spanish women re-writes the norms for this particular genre as established by male authors inside Spain, and revises and re-fashions paradigms for the detective novel produced by female Anglophone writers. In the first of three chapters, the author shows how the figure of the female sleuth has been deployed by novelists to articulate a feminist ideology or to reflect on the contemporary Spanish post-feminist environment. With reference to gendered criminology, she then moves on to discuss how writers use crime fiction to investigate the problem of gendered violence, and women s responses to it. A final section shows how, in Catalonia, female authors have used both the thriller and the cosy enigma-style detective text to foreground and interrogate the parallel exploitation of women and the Catalan nation.
