“Nancy Bird-Soto, with a firm and meticulous grip, guides us trough the layers of the (proto) feminist discourse of three Puerto Rican writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.” – Prof. Pilar Melero, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

“The writers included in this study are important figures whose presence, work, and texts should not be overlooked or understudied.
