Woman as Witness: Essays on Testimonial Literature by Latin American Women

Synopsis

Testimonial narrative is considered to be both a constant in Latin American literature, as well as one of the most prominent features of the post-boom writing of the 1980s and 1990s; women have successfully assimilated this form and currently dominate the testimonial genre in Latin America. The essays in this volume provide an orientation to the woman-centered view of this genre by inquiring into the critical and theoretical debate on the subject as well as analyzing specific nineteenth- and twentieth-century Latin American women's testimonial texts. Woman as Witness also includes selections from two testimonial works by Argentine women to advance the creation of a canon of Latin American feminist testimonial.
