Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Be aware that there are two books written by Doris Sommer. This happens NOT to be the one I needed although it was a good book .
This is a must-read for students of and experts in Spanish and Latin American Studies. I used it as a primary source in my doctoral dissertation in the field.
Years ago, I attended a lecture by Doris Sommers where the author placed Tony Morrison's Beloved under the same political-historical-literary framework with great heuristic craft and passionate intensity. Sommers is a great scholar and an engaging lecturer.
In Foundational Fictions Sommers decouples the master narratives of the young Latin American Patrias of the 19th Century in political-historical and literary discourses, with race and gender at the core of all national projects.
As a teacher, Foundational Fictions provided me with new tools to get the attention and captivate the interest of a wild bunch of high school teenagers. Not a small feat.
Foundational Fictions is a must!
