4.0 von 5 Sternen BEYOND 2. Mai 2001
Von SUSAN W. - Veröffentlicht auf
This book has incredible stories that have hidden meaning in them. The stories are fun to read and very engaging. The stories are humorous if read just for leisure.On the other hand, for a serious literature student or person, the stories have a lot to offer when critically analysed. They talk about women and how they fit in the society. Overall, I think Beyond the Border is a great book and people should definately ready it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Beyond the Border 29. April 2001
Von Jenny Setterlund - Veröffentlicht auf
This collection of short stories, edited by Nora Erro-Peralta and Caridad Silva and first published in 1991, provides varying perspectives on the feminine experience in Latin America. Some stories, such as Isabel Allende's "The Judges Wife", give a more typical view of life in Latin America without really challenging the status quo. Other stories, such as Rosario Ferre's "Mercedes-Benz 220SL", are sharply critical and experiment with form in order to aid in conveying their message. These stories show how women of Latin America get locked into specific roles based on patriarchal attitudes and often challenge the basis of these attitudes. One role that is portrayed in several of these stories, including "The Wedding" by Lucia Fox and "Homelife" by Sylvia Lago, is that of the mother. The repetition of the use of this role displays its significance in Latin American culture. One of the most important and interesting aspects of this book is the way in which it provides a wide range of female experiences.
I gave this book four stars because not only do these stories have a valuable message to convey to their readers, they are also completely enjoyable to read. If you are looking for a book that will carry you through many different settings, tell you stories of women from a variety of backgrounds, and keep you enthralled throughout, this is definitely a book you should read.

Beyond the Border, a collection of short stories by number of Latin American women authors, is an excellent source of hints to the culture of Latin America. I was very fortunate to read a number of short stories from this book for my Women's Culture from Latin America class at ISU in Normal, IL. After some time of study of Latin America's culture, I was able to get more meaning out of what I read. For example, the short story Mercedes-Benz 220SL, by Rosario Ferre, tells the story that teaches us about the impact of patriarchy and materialism on the family. Ferre uses punctuation, narriation, reoccurring themes, and imagery to paint a picture of the role of men and women in Latin America. Another short story, The Wedding, by Lucia Fox, takes the reader through the thoughts of a friend of the bride, who doesn't seem to be a clueless as everyone else. She points out how her friends fall blindly into typical female roles found in Latin American culture. In this story, Fox uses flashbacks and imagery to leave a lot of room for interpretation. The reader is forced to use their creativity to create their own interpretation. These two stories are just examples of the powerful stories found in the book. I highly recomend Beyond the Border to those both fammiliar and umfammiliar with Latin American culture.

Von Angelica Delatorre - Veröffentlicht auf
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.

The book, Beyond the Border: A New Age in Latin American Women's Fiction was a worthwhile read. Many stories from the book were required for a class I am in and was an excellent addition to the course books. I know that many classmates and myself went on and read the rest of the book and enjoyed it at much as the stories we read for class. This book is a compilation of short stories from Latin American women writers. There are many issues that are touched by this book, all from a women's perspective. New approaches of writing are taken in these stories and that makes them more interesting. It deals with gender issues, motherhood and other diverse themes. These short stories have some application for anyone and would interest readers who would like to learn more about life and customs in Latin America, as well as readers who are looking for strong and interesting short stories by women writers.
