Popular images of women in Mexico—conveyed through literature and, more recently, film and television—were long restricted to either the stereotypically submissive wife and mother or the demonized fallen woman. But new representations of women and their roles in Mexican society have shattered the ideological mirrors that reflected these images. This book explores this major change in the literary representation of women in Mexico.

María Elena de Valdés enters into a selective and hard-hitting examination of literary representation in its social context and a contestatory engagement of both the literary text and its place in the social reality of Mexico. Some of the topics she considers are Carlos Fuentes and the subversion of the social codes for women; the poetic ties between Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and Octavio Paz; questions of female identity in the writings of Rosario Castellanos, Luisa Josefina Hernández, María Luisa Puga, and Elena Poniatowska; the Chicana writing of Sandra Cisneros; and the postmodern celebration—without reprobation—of being a woman in Laura Esquivel's Like Water for Chocolate.

A thorough analysis of representations of Mexican women and attempts to subvert the patriarchial codes of Mexican masculinity which defines itself through the oppression of women in this society. The author looks at Carlos Fuentes and Juan Rulfo as two male writers who question the Mexican code of Masculinity in their work, and then she moves to SOr Juana, of course; the author makes the frightening point that between Sor Juana, writing in the mid 17th century, and Rosario Castellanos, writing in the mid 20th century, there exists a 300 year gap in the Narration of the life of Mexican women in their own words and perspectives. The author also points the complicity of the Catholic church, long an arm of the authoritarian government here, in oppressing women and even teaching them to love their bondage into the binary role of mother/wife (la virgen de guadalupe) or betraying slut (la malinche).

The author also discusses the vast class disparity in this country, where most women even of the educated classes don't read books or consider ways to create new narratives for themselves. Further, even the majority of women writing in mexico over the past 50 years ( Castellanos, Garro, Poniatowska, Loeza, etc) write from the perspective of the very upper crust, which obviously does not speak too much of the plight of the indigenous or mestiza classes. However, the book includes a fine analysis of Poniatowska's attempts to remedy this lack in her own work, most specifically in "Hasta no verte Jesus mia."

Overall, an excellent study of women in mexican literature, and also available cheaply as a used book. A must read for anyone interested in Mexico, women's development and literature.
