RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 45393044 LA English T1 The sexual woman in Latin American literature : dangerous desires A1 Marting, Diane E., PB University Press of Florida PP Gainesville, FL YR 2001 SN 0813018323 9780813018324 AB "Latin American fiction achieved a turning point in its representation of sexual women sometime in the 1960s. Diane E. Marting offers a detailed analysis of this development." "Her central idea is that in Latin American narrative women's desires were portrayed as dangerous throughout the twentieth century, despite the heroic character of the "newly sexed woman" of the sixties. She argues that women's sexuality in fiction was transformed because it symbolized the many other changes occurring in women's lives regarding their families, workplaces, societies, and nations. Female sexual desire offered an ever present threat to male privilege."--Jacket.
