The New Mediatrix: Reconciling Feminism and Spirituality in 20th Century Latin American Women's Narrative
Find this book in the library
The convergence of Hispanic Studies, Literary Criticism, feminism and spirituality has been specifically associated, on the one hand, with the study of the autobiographical writings by cloistered women in 16th and 17th century Spain and its colonies; and on the other hand, it has been a common occurrence in the analysis of contemporary texts by Chicana and Latina writers in the United States.
This book centers its attention on the convergence of these four areas in a group of contemporary novels published between 1969 and 1995 by women writers from Mexico, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Colombia. It focuses on the portrayal of female characters in Hispanic literature for whom religious faith is a source of individual and social development. [from the back cover]
