Beyond the Border: A New Age in Latin American Women's Fiction is a fascinated book that includes many short stories from well known Latin American women writers such as Isabel Allende, Rosario Ferré, Aída Cartagena Portalatín to Elena Poniantowska. This book of short stories first appeared in 1991 and has many great reasons in which I rate it four stars. First and most importanly, is that this book is published by women writers who have suffered for many years to get their work acknowledged. Second, this book gives an overview on diverse themes in Latin America. Some in which touch base on partriarchy, materialism, gender roles, motherhood, and much more. Lastly, these short fiction stories also offer a great interest in symbolism, tone, imagery,sound and rhythm.
Therefore, I suggest if YOU want to learn more about the Latin American culture, writers, or themes such as patriarchy, self-expression, love, marriage, and much more PLEASE READ THESE SHORT STORIES. I promise that these short stories will take you into a great adventure and are a worthwhile experience.
