Description

Homosexuality has appeared as a secondary theme in the fictional works of numerous mainstream writers in contemporary Mexico. Here, the author deals with issues of gender identity when they emerge as metaphorical red flags signaling cultural danger zones along the path to harmonious national discourse. By focusing on the representation of homosexuality in a variety of texts produced between 1964 and 1994, the book also delineates complex relationships within Mexican society. Contents: -1. El diario de Jose Toledo: The Fantasies of a Middle-Class Bureaucrat-2. The Power of Subversive Imagination: Utopian Discourse in the Novels of Luis Zapata and Jose Rafael Calva-3. On the Cutting Edge: El jinete azul and the Aesthetics of the Abyss-4. Monobodies, Antibodies, and the Body Politic: Sara Levi Calderon's Dos mujeres-5. Just Another Material Girl? La hermana secreta de Angelica Maria and the Seduction of the Popular-6. From Infernal Realms of Delinquency to Cozy Cabanas in Cuernavaca: Jose Joaquin Blanco's Visions of Homosexuality
