Editorial Reviews

Review

"Apparently conceived as a sequel to Marting's Women Writers of Spanish America, this title does more than improve on its predecessor: it is a superb and indispensable supplement to Latin American Writers ed. by Carlos A. Sole, which included only 18 women in its 176 entries. The overlap is particularly small because Marting does not consider women from Brazil whereas Portugese-language authors seem to make up most of the entries for women in the larger work. Whatever the perceived problems of her earlier effort, Marting has now produced a well-edited and useful guide to the lives and works of 50 women, supplemented by two essays: Indian Women Writers of Spanish America' and Latina Writers in the United States.' Some names will be unfamiliar to many; this guide should serve to introduce a rich lode to scholarly miners of the Latin American literary tradition. Highly recommended."-Choice

"There is no question that Spanish American Women Writers is an invaluable tool for novices in the field as well as for veteran researchers attempting to remain current in their information. . . . Marting is to be congratulated for matching the diversity she sought in her authors with the variety of her contributing colleagues."-Women's Studies International Forum
