The book takes the form of a collection of studies dealing with a variety of key issues in literary theory. A central theme is the role of the reader in assigning meaning to written works.

Literary cultures of Latin America : a comparative history ( Book )
14 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In three volumes of expert, innovative scholarship, Literary Cultures of Latin America offers a multidisciplinary reference on one of the most distinctive literary cultures in the world. In topically arranged articles written by a team of international scholars, Literary Cultures of Latin America explores the shifting problems that have arisen across national borders, geographic regions, time periods, linguistic systems, and cultural traditions in literary history. Bucking the tradition of focusing almost exclusively on the great canons of literature, this unique reference work casts its net wider, exploring pop culture, sermons, scientific essays, and more. While collaborators are careful to note that these volumes offer only a snapshot of the diverse body of Latin American literature, Literary Cultures of Latin America highlights unique cultural perspectives that have never before received academic attention. Comprised of signed articles each with complete bibliographies, this unique reference also takes into account relevant political, anthropological, economic, geographic, historical, demographic, and sociological research in order to understand the full context of each community's literature

The novella tells the story of the local Catholic priest (Don Manuel) in fictional Valverde de Lucerna, Spain as told through the eyes, Angela, one of the townspeople. Throughout the course of the story Manuel is adored by the people of the town. He is constantly in the service of the townspeople. He refrains from condemning anyone and goes out of his way to help those whom the people have marginalized. They consider him their "Saint". Angela, after a brief stint away for education, returns to the town to live with her mother where she continues to be amazed at Manuel's devotion. Her brother, Lazarus, returns from the New World and is likewise amazed, but is not a believer. When their mother dies, her dying wish is that Lazarus will be converted. After this takes place, Angela learns that neither Manuel or Lazarus believe in an afterlife, but devote themselves to serving the townspeople anyway; Manuel suffers greatly from revealing his unbelief to the point of dying. Lazarus takes over Manuel's duties after Manuel's death and Angela learns Manuel is being considered for beatification

Rethinking literary history : a dialogue on theory ( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of five essays by major scholars reconsiders various aspects of literary history, including key questions in contemporary literary theory such as the idea of nations and nationalism, racial memory, and colonialism and postcolonialism. Some twenty years ago, when the influence of poststructuralist theory became predominant in literary theory, traditional literary history was pushed to the margins by critiques of its teleological assumptions and uncritical acceptance of Eurocentric ideologies. In Rethinking Literary History, five major scholars, practicing literary historians and literary theorists, revisit literary history, deploying the strategies developed in literary and cultural studies over the past two decades." "The authors provide synoptic and wide-ranging discussions of each issue, and the interchange between the various authors in which they reflect on, argue with, and "rethink" each other's formulations reinforces the dialogic structure of the volume. A substantial afterword by a leading scholar rounds out the notable arguments contained in this book, a must-have for literary theorists and historians."--BOOK JACKET
