Item description for Indole (Spanish Edition) by Clorinda Matto De Turner...

Clorinda Matto de Turners second novel, Indole, was published in Lima in 1891, two years after her Aves sin nido shocked the Peruvian reading public with its forthright criticism of Church and state corruption. Like Aves, Indole dramatizes the liberal reformist anticlericalism of late nineteenth century political debates, and is also set in a small Andean town surrounded by outlying haciendas. But in Indole, the town is a stable and basically happy one, where indigenous people, mestizos and landowners of Spanish descent live harmoniously in a beautiful Andean valley. Mattos journalistic ambition to document peoples appearance and behavior in detail, and her close attention to the dynamics of gender, race and class, produces a vivid analysis of small town life in 1858, complete with an army batallion sweeping through at the end on its way to retake Arequipa for Ramn Castilla, placing the fictive town of Rosalina in a historical national framework.

Clorinda Matto de Turner (1852-1909) was born in Cusco, grew up on a rural estate speaking Quechua, married an English businessman and settled with him in Tinta, a town very much like Indoles Rosalina. After his death, when she was already a well-established writer, she became the editor of the newspaper La Bolsa of Arequipa, and later of El Per Ilustrado in Lima. Her liberal reformism and activism made her many enemies, and in 1895 she had to leave Per, and she moved to Buenos Aires, where she founded another newspaper, Bcaro americano. She published thousands of articles and editorials, legends, tradiciones and biographies, as well as three novels in which she sought to define models of the ideal citizens of a rapidly modernizing Peru, and in which she denounced corruption, immoral behavior, and laziness.
