Item description for Novelas y cuadros de la vida sur-americana (Spanish Edition) by Soledad Acosta De Samper & Flor Maria Rodriguez-arenas...

Soledad Acosta de Samper (1833-1913) is the most prolific and important woman writer of the 19th century in Colombia. She is an exceptional representative of Colombian intellectual life of that century, not only for the caliber of her writing, the divergent disciplines that she researched and wrote about, and the intense cultural work that she undertook. An avid reader, in her travels to England and France, she personally lived the debates regarding the public presence of the woman writer, as well as the influence that women should or could exercise in society, especially in the lives of other women. Preoccupied with the real, ordinary, "normal" and pragmatic life of women in her fictional literature, she ascribed to and adopted techniques of European Realism in order to effect the representations of the fictional worlds that are encountered in Novelas y cuadros de la vida sur-americana, all of which were published between 1864 and 1869. These narratives have an essential objective: the circulation of meanings, ideas and identities. Acosta de Samper utilized fiction in order to aid women in their understanding of themselves and their world. This collection is comprised of "Dolores" (novel), "Teresa la limea"(novel), "El corazn de la mujer: Matilde, Manuelita, Mercedes, Juanita, Margarita, Isabel" (novel); "La perla del valle" (short story), "Ilusin y realidad" (short story), "Luz y sombra" (short story), "Tipos sociales: La monja, Mi madrina" (stories), "Un crimen" (short story). The author focuses on individual characters who are perceived in their everyday lives as confronting the multiple forces and contradictions of society that were common at that time. In this way, Soledad Acosta de Samper directed her efforts towards the education of women, which in effect would be beneficial to the formation of the Colombian nation. Soledad Acosta de Samper contributed culturally to Peruvian life years before the names of Clorinda Matto de Turner, Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera, Teresa Gonzlez de Fanning, Lastenia Larriva de Llona, and those of other women, figured openly in the cultural life of that country. In addition, "Dolores", the first novel in this volume, was published months before Mara by Jorge Isaacs. Of the numerous publications of Soledad Acosta de Samper, only the bibliographical information of 287 texts have been found to date: 42 novels of extensive length, 50 short stories and tales, 5 theatrical works, 20 books of history, of biography, of essays, of travel, etc., 165 writings of various lengths between articles, essays and translations; as well as 5 newspapers and literary magazines. This edition of Novelas y cuadros de la vida sur-americanas, with plentiful footnotes and a critical introduction by Flor Maria Rodriguez-Arenas, would fit well into courses on Latin American narrative, women writers, Southern Cone history, gender and cultural studies, and nation-building in the nineteenth century.
