Out of the Mirrored Garden by Delia Poey

Out of the Mirrored Garden

by Delia Poey

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingMentions
"Out of the Mirrored Garden gathers seventeen remarkable women's voices from throughout Latin America, bringing together both established and emerging writers. Their stories represent a broad range of literary styles ranging from the "magical realism" of Angela Hernandez to the journalistic style of Angeles Mastretta to the postmodern experimental fiction of Carmen Boullosa. In terms of content, the stories are equally varied, addressing subjects as diverse as political repression, madness, seduction, housekeeping, and family - the personal and political issues that affect women's lives." "The majority of contributors to Out of the Mirrored Garden are younger writers who have come of age in Latin American societies that have been violently shaken by the women's movement. It is only natural that their fiction reflect these changes and influences, yet what is particularly interesting is that their work is imitative of neither the predominantly male fiction of the "Boom" (Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, et al.) nor of the founding Latin American women writers' fiction, but is rather a whole new creation that uses its influences wisely." "The diversity of the stories offers readers an opportunity to enjoy a literature that is high in both quality and popularity while providing a framework from which to view the literary expression of Latin American women as it shifts, grows, and changes."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
