"Maria Blanca's Memoirs" is the second in a series of texts from Latin America and the Caribbean translated into English. First published in 1929, the novel is both a femanist's portrait of the author's experience growing up on a Venezuelan hacienda and an assault on the quasi-feudal order that hed prevailed for decades under dictator Vincente Gomez. This translation by Harriet de Onis and Frederick H. Fornoff aims to render the spirit of the original work, and supporting critical essays interpret de la Parra's work, with an emphasis on femanist interpretations.
