Spanish American Short Story

The Spanish American Short Story: from criollismo to feminismo

The best stories from Horacio Quiroga to Angelina Muñiz: a thematically and aesthetically comparative approach. Contrasts among criollismo, magic realism, and the fantastic; between stories of the Mexican and the Cuban Revolutions; between existentialism in Mallea and Onetti; among different manifestations of feminism in Bombal, Arredondo, Valenzuela, Rosario Castellanos, Ana Lydia Vega, Gloria Guardia, Ethel Krause, and Angelina Muñiz.
