Archival Reflections: Postmodern Fiction of the Americas (Self-Reflexivity, Historical Revisionism, Utopia)


"Archival Reflections explores the works of critically acclaimed contemporary New World writers - Carlos Fuentes (Mexico), Julio Cortazar (Argentina), Ishmael Reed, and E. L. Doctorow (United States) - from two innovative perspectives: the new historical novel of recent decades and the current postmodernist debate. Due to its scope and perspective this work has a relevance that extends far beyond the conventional bounds of literary studies. Concerned as it is with issues of historical understanding, culture, and politics, it has implications for the literary histories of Spanish America and the United States, as well as for the fields of inter-American and cultural studies, literary theory, and historiography."
