Hispanic Issues On Line (HIOL): Volume 18 (Spring 2017): Gender and the Politics of Literature: Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda  [14]

Persistent link to this collection:

Hispanic Issues On Line 18 explores the work of Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, one of the foremost Romantic writers of world literature, pioneer of the abolitionist novel in the Americas, and precursor of modern feminist thought. This volume examines the author’s contribution to the ongoing debates on human rights and shows why her work remains relevant. The essays draw from a diverse theoretical framework, including Legal Studies, African Studies, Latino Studies, American Studies, Feminist and Women’s Studies, History, and Comparative Literature, and covers the majority of the literary genres that Gómez de Avellaneda cultivated: novel, short prose, drama, poetry, travel narratives, and letters. The volume provides a complete picture of the author’s literary output and offers, for the first time, an overview of the author’s presence in the U.S. press as evidence of her transnational influence.
