Gay and lesbian themes in Latin American literature have been largely ignored. This reference fills this gap by providing more than a hundred alphabetically arranged entries for Latin American authors who have treated gay or lesbian material in their works. Each entry explores the significance of gay and lesbian themes in a particular author's writings and closes with a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. The figures included have a professed gay identity, or have written on gay or lesbian themes in either a positive or negative way, or have authored works in which a gay sensibility can be identified. The volume pays particular attention to the difficulty of ascribing North American critical perspectives to Latin American authors, and studies these authors within the larger context of Latin American culture. The book includes entries for men and women, and for authors from Latin American countries as well as Latino writers from the United States. The entries are written by roughly 60 expert contributors from Latin America, the U.S., and Europe.
CONVERSACIÓN Y REPASO, Ninth Edition, is part of the INTERMEDIATE SPANISH series that has gained the reputation for having the most complete grammar syllabus and in-depth explanations, while its three-book format allows greater flexibility for any intermediate Spanish course. Thorough review of grammatical structures is at the heart of CONVERSACIÓN Y REPASO, which provides clear, easy-to-follow explanations of grammar topics in plain English. Students can follow these on their own so that class time can be dedicated to practice and communication. The framework of this program is three textbooks closely related in theme, language, and organization; for example, each chapter has a rich overarching theme that is treated in all three volumes. Each chapter's grammar and vocabulary presentations are supported and reinforced across volumes as well. Learners use and develop all five language skills through contextualized exercises, interactive activities, and dialog- and realia-based opportunities for conversation. In the Ninth Edition, you'll find new unit openers that include more detailed content; a multitude of correlations to the other ancillaries in the program (especially the two readers that accompany this textbook, LITERATURA Y ARTE and CIVILIZACIÓN Y CULTURA); and a powerful suite of technology resources designed to engage your students that includes vMentor, our free online tutoring service, a new Video Program, a robust companion website, Heinle iRadio, and Atajo 4.0: Writing Assistant for Spanish.

Women's participation, both formal and informal, in the creation of what we now call Spanish America is reflected in its literary legacy. Stacey Schlau examines what women from a wide spectrum of classes and races have to say about the societies in which they lived and their place in them. Schlau has written the first book to study a historical selection of Spanish American women's writings with an emphasis on social and political themes. Through their words, she offers an alternative vision of the development of narrative genresÑcritical, fictional, and testimonialÑfrom colonial times to the present. The authors considered here represent the chronological yet nonlinear development of women's narrative. They include Teresa Romero Zapata, accused before the Inquisition of being a false visionary; InŽs Su‡rez, nun and writer of spiritual autobiography; Gertrudis G—mez de Avellaneda, author of an indigenist historical romance; Magda Portal, whose biography of Flora Trist‡n furthered her own political agenda; Dora Alonso, who wrote revolutionary children's books; Domitila Barrios de Chungara, political leader and organizer; Elvira OrphŽe, whose novel unpacks the psychology of the torturer; and several others who address social and political struggles that continue to the present day. Although the writers treated here may seem to have little in common, all sought to maneuver through institutions and systems and insert themselves into public life by using the written word, often through the appropriation and modification of mainstream genres. In examining how these authors stretched the boundaries of genre to create a multiplicity of hybrid forms, Schlau reveals points of convergence in the narrative tradition of challenging established political and social structures. Outlining the shape of this literary tradition, she introduces us to a host of neglected voices, as well as examining better-known ones, who demonstrate that for women, simply writing can be a political act.
Essays on motifs employed in women's novels from Spain and Latin America between 1936 and the present.
Through detailed and theoretically sophisticated discussions of texts by six key writers - Luisa Valenzuela, Marta Traba, Sylvia Molloy, and Reina Roffe (Argentina), and Cristina Peri Rossi and Armonia Somers (Uruguay) - Geofrey Kantaris shows how their writing of the 1980s, including their own critical and theoretical work, engages with, and often challenges, Western theories of the construction of gender and its relation to identity politics (notably psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and feminism). By situating their work within the political turmoil of the period - the brutal military dictatorships and the necessity of political or cultural exile - Kantaris is able to show how these texts signal a shift of cultural perspective in the Southern Cone, in which gender is no longer ignored in the construction of national and political narratives.
