Blending cultural studies, literary analysis, and political history, this book shows how Elena Garro's life and work expose the impasses inherent to the concept of Mexican modernity. This study explores her critique of Mexican modernity and its apologists, as well as her critique on the nation''s crisis of globalization, state power, and violence.
