Reviews

“. . . Torres-Pou has analyzed a diversified array of 19th-century women writers from various parts of the Americas: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Cuba, Dominican Republic, California, and Texas. These are authors who made groundbreaking contributions to several genres of Hispanic letters but whose writings, even those that were well received in their day despite the obstacles the writers faced as women, have largely been ignored by succeeding generations. . . . Torres-Pou effectively fills gaps in our scholarly knowledge. He does so by including texts that were written in English, French, and Portuguese as well as Spanish, and by placing these early Latin American writers’ works in their respective sociohistorical contexts. He also develops illuminating comparisons between the social status of women and women writers in Latin American with the contemporaneous situation of women in Europe and the United States. . . . a well-written, thoroughly-documented study that presents a wealth of information and new insights of interest not only to specialists in the field of Latin American women’s literature but to anyone interested in women’s studies or the history of the Americas.” – Phyllis Zatlin

"[it is] siginificant as it provides a testimony of Mexican-American experiences." -- Prof. Catherine Davies, University of Nottingham
