Reviews

“The authors aim, successfully argued and brought to fruition, is to unravel the way in which their corpus, from deeply seated feminist convictions, contributes to the renovation and evolution of the genre of narrative.”
Dr. Lilit Thwaites,
LaTrobe University


“With the ongoing consolidation of Galician Studies as an autonomous discipline within Hispanic and Lusophone Studies, there is a greater need for research materials in what is a rapidly changing discipline.”
Helena Miguélez Carballeira,
Bangor University


"... provides a useful insight into Galician women's narrative, with an extensive history of the field and in-depth analysis of the work of four of the most influencial and innovative women writers. Rodríguez sets out to analyse the innovation and impact of Torres, Queizán, Blanco and Moure and her work achieves this and more. Not only does she provide the field of Galician women's writing with modern literary models, she also links the works of the authors through themes such as the feminized quest romance and as such she defragmentizes the genre." Prof. Jennifer Rodríguez, University of Liverpool
