Generalizing and Genre-lizing

Perpetuation of the Literary Canon

“We write in Latin America to reclaim a space to discover ourselves in the presence of others, of human community –so that they may see us, so that they may love us –to form the vision of the world, to acquire some dimension –so they can’t erase us so easily.  We write so as not to disappear.” -Elena Poniatowska, Wellesley College 2008
