Current scholarship on Latin American historical fiction has failed to take feminism and postcolonialism into account. This study uses these important contemporary discourses as a starting point for a new definition of the Latin American historical novel that includes national identity, magical realism, historical intertextuality, and symbolism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"None of the novels examined in Redefining Latin American Historical Fiction are viewed as historical fiction in the conventional 'costume drama' sense of the word, and all engage in essentially Marxian versions of history as the contemporary ideological positioning of human subjects. These essays are outstanding examples of literary scholarship, well documented and well grounded theoretically. They certainly make me want me to read the novels discussed that I do not know, which I think is a mark of sophisticated criticism." - David William Foster, Regents Professor, Arizona State University, USA
