What links women of the Americas? How do they redefine their identities? Lesley Feracho answers these questions through a comparative look at texts by four women writers from across the Americas--Zora Neale Hurston, Julieta Campos, Carolina Maria de Jesus, and Clarice Lispector. She explores how their writing reformulates identity as an intricate connection of the historical, sociocultural, and discursive, and also reveals new understandings of feminine writing as a hybrid discourse in and of itself.
Lesley Feracho is Associate Professor of Spanish at the University of Georgia.
