The Telling of Trauma: Narratives of Rape in Twentieth-Century Hispanic Culture.

Abstract segment: "The following dissertation contains a narratological approach to contemporary rape narratives in Spanish, Latin American, and U.S. Latina literature. By comparing modern stories of rape trauma to traditional myths and literature, it explores the ways in which certain contextual and narratological aspects of these works have evolved. Also discussed is the way in which contemporary rape myths, such as the belief that women desire rape, are portrayed in many of the texts under consideration. By combining a dual emphasis on narrative and story, the end result is an approach based on feminist narratology."
