About this Item

Library Binding. 216 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.8in.In Rewriting Womanhood, Nancy LaGreca explores the subversive refigurings of womanhood in three novels by women writers: La hija del bandido (1887) by Refugio Barragn de Toscano (Mexico; 18461916), Blanca Sol (1888) by Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera (Peru; 18451909), and Luz y sombra (1903) by Ana Roqu (Puerto Rico; 18531933). While these women were both acclaimed and critiqued in their day, they have been largely overlooked by contemporary mainstream criticism. Detailed enough for experts yet accessible to undergraduates, graduate students, and the general reader, Rewriting Womanhood provides ample historical context for understanding the key womens issues of nineteenth-century Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico; clear definitions of the psychoanalytic theories used to unearth the rewriting of the female self; and in-depth literary analyses of the feminine agency that Barragn, Cabello, and Roqu highlight in their fiction. Rewriting Womanhood reaffirms the value of three women novelists who wished to broaden the ruling-class definition of woman as mother and wife to include woman as individual for a modern era. As such, it is an important contribution to womens studies, nineteenth-century Hispanic studies, and sexuality and gender studies. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title

Synopsis:

In Rewriting Womanhood, Nancy LaGreca explores the subversive refigurings of womanhood in three novels by women writers: La hija del bandido (1887) by Refugio Barragán de Toscano (Mexico; 1846?1916), Blanca Sol (1888) by Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera (Peru; 1845?1909), and Luz y sombra (1903) by Ana Roqué (Puerto Rico; 1853?1933). While these women were both acclaimed and critiqued in their day, they have been largely overlooked by contemporary mainstream criticism. Detailed enough for experts yet accessible to undergraduates, graduate students, and the general reader, Rewriting Womanhood provides ample historical context for understanding the key women?s issues of nineteenth-century Mexico, Peru, and Puerto Rico; clear definitions of the psychoanalytic theories used to unearth the rewriting of the female self; and in-depth literary analyses of the feminine agency that Barragán, Cabello, and Roqué highlight in their fiction.

Rewriting Womanhood reaffirms the value of three women novelists who wished to broaden the ruling-class definition of woman as mother and wife to include woman as individual for a modern era. As such, it is an important contribution to women?s studies, nineteenth-century Hispanic studies, and sexuality and gender studies.
