'The Subversive Psyche is a thought-provoking and informed study which is a welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship on the literature of the dictatorships of the Cone.'Verity Smih, Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London, Tesserae, Journal of Iberian and Latin American Studies, 2, 1996
'This is an impressive book, above all in the rigour of its argumentation and the intelligence of its expression ... With its theoretical subtlety, the brilliance of its readings, and the astuteness with which it deftly wards off many of the criticisms likely to be levelled at it, the bookstands as a highly accomplished contribution to the Oxford Hispanic Studies series.'Adam Sharman, University of Nottingham, MLR, vol 94, no 3, 1999

Summaries
Long Description
This is an exciting and original study of the links between gender and politics in the work of six important contemporary women writers from Argentina and Uruguay. Through subtle and theoretically sophisticated readings of texts written during and after the military dictatorships of the 1980s by Luisa Valenzuela, Marta Traba, Sylvia Molloy, Reina Roffe, Cristina Peri Rossi, and Armonia Somers, Geoffrey Jantaris shows how these writings signal a shift of cultural perspective in the Southern Cone, in which gender is no longer ignored in the construction of national and political narratives.
