Fantasies of the feminine : the short stories of Silvina Ocampo by Patricia Nisbet Klingenberg( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silvina Ocampo (1903-93) recently has been described as "surely one of the ten best writers writing in Spanish today" (Alberto Manguel, ed. Other Fires, 1986). Sister of Victoria Ocampo, wife of Adolfo Bioy Casares, her early collaborations with Jorge Luis Borges situate her within the inner circle of the most exciting intellectual ferment of her time. And yet she has remained an enigmatic figure. Among other questions that this study considers is why has this writer, so central to the creative "boom" of Latin American literature, been relatively understudied by contemporary critics? More specifically, why has this great woman writer been almost completely left out of feminist discourse regarding Latin American literature?

"The critical essays in this volume are dedicated to the works of Argentine writer Silvina Ocampo (1903-1993) and introduce readers more fully to a figure who has long been a kind of insider's secret among intellectuals of her country. As the title suggests, the purpose of the volume is to move beyond the codification of Ocampo's use of the supernatural, an early oversimplification of her work. The essays address the quirkiness, cruelty, violence, and overt sexuality of her works, elements which have impeded a full understanding of her creative vision. Here it becomes clear that Silvina Ocampo was a co-contributor to the literary enterprise of the Sur generation, which produced Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares, and Victoria Ocampo, and had a profound influence on writers of the younger generation, such as Alejandra Pizarnik, Sylvia Molloy, Marjorie Agosín and others."--Publisher's description
