9780791442364: Onetti and Others: Comparative Essays on a Major Figure in Latin American Literature (Suny Series, Latin American & Iberian Thought & Culture)

International scholars explore the connections between Juan Carlos Onetti, one of the foundational figures of the 1960s "Boom" in Latin American literature, and other relevant writers and texts from Latin America and beyond. The essays reflect a range of perspectives, including influence, intertextuality, and gender studies (representation, feminism, masculinity), and focus on topics as diverse as urban settings, prostitution, male fights, and fat and thin characters. This interplay results in a complex and refined picture of an author who from the beginning of the present decade has attracted much attention from academics, the media, and translators.

[Contributors include Steven Boldy, Peter Bush, Linda Craig, Sabine Giersberg, Paul Jordan, Mark I. Millington, Maria Rosa Olivera-Williams, Hilary Owen, Gustavo San Roman, Donald L. Shaw, Philip Swanson, and Peter Turton.]

Review :

The richly nuanced feminine readings will allow readers to grasp the sense of what Helene Cixous once referred to as phallic monosexuality, a concept most appropriate in describing the work of Onetti. But without a doubt, the best feature of this book is what each and every contributor sought to highlight: the intertextual links between Onetti and other authors. Because the approach of this book is comparative, it opens doors to readers from many disciplines. Rene Prieto, Southern Methodist University"
