Book Summary:

Celebrado desde su publicación inicial como el relato clásico de una muchacha del barrio latino de Chicago, La casa en Mango Street ha sido elogiado por los críticos, acogido por los niños y sus padres y abuelos y estudiado por todas partes, desde escuelas primarias en las grandes ciudades hasta universidades por todo el país. Ahora por primera vez en una edición en español, traducido por una de las más reconocidas figures literarias de México, La casa en Mango Street está a la disposición de los miles de lectores latinos a quien este libro ha dado voz. A veces desgarrador, a veces intensamente alegre, La casa en Mango Street relata la historia de Esperanza Cordero, en cuyo barrio conviven realidades crueles y una belleza severa. Esperanza no quiere pertenecer —ni a su barrio ni a las bajas expectativas que el mundo le ofrece. La historia de Esperanza es la de una joven intentando alcanzar su propio poder e inventar su propio futuro.

Book Summary:

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.
