Description

This work examines the relationship between William Faulkner and three Latin American writers: Maria Luisa Bomball, Juan Carlos Onetti, and Juan Rulfo. The myth of the labyrinth is deployed in order to forge new links between specific texts, as well as providing alternative ways of theorizing the concepts of influence and intertextuality. The comparative literary analysis is situated within the broader context of power relationships between the US and Latin America. The study examines the cultural contexts of Argentina in the 1930s, Argentina and Uruguay in the 1940s and 1950s, and Mexico in the 1950s. It also examines the role of Latin American literary journals in shaping an image of Faulkner and marketing Faulkner as a cultural product.
