Most scholarship on the work of Horacio Quiroga, Jose Eustasio Rivera and other Spanish-American writers of the 1920s has viewed their works as symbolic assertions of Latin America's cultural identity issued in response to the United States' aggression in the Caribbean basin. In this study, Jennifer L. French brilliantly revises that tendency by considering the Spanish-American regionalist texts as responses to the cultural, social, and economic changes brought about by Britain's economic supremacy in the region from the early national period to the First World War. She identifies previously unrecognized intertextual relations between the works of regionalist writers and British colonial literature by authors including Joseph Conrad and Rudyard Kipling. French's study adroitly incorporates recent theories of environmental justice and eco-criticism, which address the regionalists' consistent revision of capitalist and Eurocentric discourses of nature. Ultimately, the author identifies and elevates the Spanish-American regionalist writers' representations of the changing relationship between humans and the environment on South America's internal economic frontiers. Scholars and students of the Spanish-American regionalist writers, comparative colonial and postcolonial literature, and the emerging field of environmental criticism will welcome this expert and provocative new interrogation of British neo-colonialism in South America.

Review:

"This is truly an important and original contribution to the study of imperialism and neo-colonialism in the Americas . . . It will be an obligatory reference in twentieth-century Latin American literature courses, as well as in those devoted to the study of nineteenth-century British imperialism and to the relations between imperialism and culture in general." -- Agnes Lugo-Ortiz, University of Chicago "Jennifer L. French boldly destabilizes the coordinates of standing historiographical assumptions regarding post-Independence Latin America in her literary analysis of Horacio Quiroga, Benita Lynch, and Jose Eustacio Rivera . . . French breaks decisive ground toward Latin America's integration within the disputed boundaries of post-coloniality, at once connecting and expanding the historiographical imaginaries of Latin American and post-colonial studies."--The Americas
