Summary
"Latin American fiction achieved a turning point in its representation of sexual women sometime in the 1960s. Diane E. Marting offers a detailed analysis of this development." "Her central idea is that in Latin American narrative women's desires were portrayed as dangerous throughout the twentieth century, despite the heroic character of the "newly sexed woman" of the sixties. She argues that women's sexuality in fiction was transformed because it symbolized the many other changes occurring in women's lives regarding their families, workplaces, societies, and nations. Female sexual desire offered an ever present threat to male privilege."--Jacket
