Editorial Reviews

Review

"Remembering Maternal Bodies provides a profound engagement with Latino and Latin American women writers. It invites the reader into a body of imaginative connections and lines of flight shared by writers generally not read in unison. Benigno Trigo significantly advances an exploration of a new corpus redefining literature and criticism in the Americas."--Roman de la Campa, Stony Brook University

"Drawing on insights from psychoanalytic, feminist and post-feminist thought, Trigo undertakes a thoughtful, provocative and strikingly original reflection on the inscription--and, at times, proscription--of the maternal body in contemporary Latin American and Latina writing. Remembering Maternal Bodies is certain to inspire lively debate. I know of no other book like it."--Gustavo Pérez Firmat, Columbia University

"Insightful and introspective study of maternal writing that tells us as much about the text as it does about ourselves. Trigo provides a highly analytical, patient, and perceptive counter reading to patriarchal narratives. In so doing, he convincingly links symbolic matricide in Latin American and Latina literatures.."--William Luis, Vanderbilt University

"Trigo presents a compelling critical vision of a literary corpus that, through a rigorous and theoretically informed analysis of maternal themes, contributes significantly to existing definitions of Latin American and Latina women's writing."--Dara Goldman, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"An important contribution to the fields of Latin American literary and Latina/o literary studies."--Laura Gutiérrez, University of Iowa
