Pages : 179 pages
Rating : 4.5/5 (55 Download)

Download and Read Spanish and Latin American Women’s Crime Fiction in the New Millennium PDF by Nancy Vosburg Full Book and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2017-11-06 with total page 179 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Crime fiction written by women in Spain and Latin America since the late 1980s has been successful in shifting attention to crimes often overlooked by their male counterparts, such as rape and sexual battery, domestic violence, child pornography, pederasty, and incest. In the twenty-first century, social, economic, and political issues, including institutional corruption, class inequality, criminalized oppression of immigrant women, crass capitalist market forces, and mediatized political and religious bodies, have at their core a gendered dimension. The conventions of the original noir, or novela negra, genre have evolved, such that some women authors challenge the noir formulas by foregrounding gender concerns while others imagine new models of crime fiction that depart drastically from the old paradigms. This volume, highlighting such evolution in the crime fiction genre, will be of interest to students, teachers, and scholars of crime fiction in Latin America and Spain, to those interested in crime fiction by women, and to readers familiar with the sub-genres of crime fiction, which include noir, the thriller, the police procedural, and the “cozy” novel.

However, Holly Koelling--author, YA librarian, and booktalker extraordinaire-offers a variety of techniques for rising to that challenge and successfully selecting, presenting, and connecting teens with great literature in the library and in school. This book defines classics and discusses why they are important, then provides a step-by-step process for finding the hooks that attract teens, educating yourself about classic literature, and motivating and inspiring readers. This is an upbeat, information-packed guide that anyone working with teen readers will refer to again and again. Readers' advisory techniques employing the genre approach, appeal features, and other lures are discussed along with a variety of programs and promotions that will help teens more deeply appreciate the classics they read--from booktalks, booklists, and displays to readers' theatre, teen book clubs, and reviews. Brimming with anecdotes and practical examples, Classic Connections also includes an extensive bibliography of classics for teens and professional resources. This is an upbeat, information-packed guide, and if you work with teen readers, you'll refer to it again and again. When you're through, you might just have the teens fighting over these important works!

Book excerpt: Isabel Allende--"la Famosa" to her fellow Chileans--is the world's most widely read Spanish language author. Her career coincides with the emergence of multiculturalism and global feminism, and her powerfully honest, revelatory works touch the pulse points of humankind. Her bravura study of the interwoven roles of women in family history opens the minds of outsiders to the sufferings of women and their children during years of social and political nightmare. This reference work provides an introduction to Allende's life as well as a guided overview of her body of work. Designed for the fan and scholar alike, this text features an alphabetized, fully-annotated listing of major terms in the Allende canon, including fictional characters, motifs, historical events and themes. A comprehensive index is included.
