Becoming and Consumption: The Contemporary Spanish Novel (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Becoming and Consumption uses the Spanish novels Alivio rapido;Veo, veo; Amor, curiosidad, prozac, y dudas; and Los placeres de Anastasia to explore the relationships between globalization, consumption, and economies of experiences that yield innovative ways to reexamine and recreate female subjectivity. While the four contemporary Spanish female writers_Susana Plane, Silvia Grijalba, Gabriela Bustelo, and Lucia Etxebarria_maintain distinct personal narratives, there exists a commonality among their work. Through consumption, the protagonists of these authors' works navigate a multiplicity of images and codes in their journey of becoming an active female subject, an agent with the potential to enact change and evolve. Bosse provides insight into the feminist philosophy and identity politics found in contemporary Spanish novels.

Candice Bosse is visiting assistant professor in the Department of Romance Languages, Bowdoin College.
