'Reading these essayists is essential for gaining an understanding of Latin American literature and culture. Work focuses on feminine perspective, and in doing so, proposes a reinterpretation of the history of the genre. Includes analyses of better-knownwomen writers: Clorinda Matto de Turner, Gabriela Mistral, Alfonsina Storni, Magda Portal, Eduarda Mansilla, Victoria Ocampo, and Rosario Ferre. Major contribution to both the study of the essay and to the work of the women included. Work could have benefitted from the inclusion of less-frequently studied women, since the classic feminist list is becoming repetitive, and, as with work on boom writers, it has nearly reached the point of exhaustion'--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.http://www.loc.gov/hlas/
