The first English anthology dedicated exclusively to Spanish-American women playwrights contains eight plays by award-winning authors who have received national and international acclaim. The origins of Spanish-American feminism are explained in a compelling introduction, tracing its roots to 17th-century Mexican writer Sor Juana Ines Cruz. Like Sor Juana, most of the writers in the anthology are involved in the denunciation of male-constructed roles for women. The likelihood that many will find the notion of Spanish-American feminism contradictory, has helped necessitate this collection. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
