Foundational Fictions

PDF-file by Doris Sommer

Foundational Fictions PDF ebook download The lit crit side of this book was fascinating. I really enjoyed the arguments and the interpretations it offered. But the thing is - its really hard to read lit crit about novels you have never read. I have failed to be transnational.I have not globalized.This is to say I did not know most of the Latin American fiction she was writing about.But I loved the introduction. The explanation of the relationship between love and patriotism (desire for belonging along with possession). The book examines romances that are really writing a national history.Thus, "To show the inextricably of politics from fiction in the history of nation-building is, then, the first concern of this study."She doesn't mean what you might think when she discusses the "erotics of politics." The textual based readings seem very solid although, as mentioned before, I haven't read the novel she discusses.
