dc.description.abstractThe following study focuses on the evolution of national discourse in literature in Puerto Rico, through the lens of two women authors. Through an analysis of La casa de la laguna by Rosario Ferré and Nuestra señora de la noche by Mayra Santos Febres, we see how different generations in Puerto Rican literature approach key subjects as they affect two families throughout the twentieth century. With an emphasis on the binary perspective as explained by Jacques Derrida, Madan Sarup and Judith Butler, and the intersectional approach explained by Harriet Bradley and Maria Lugones I will demonstrate how these two authors present their characters in very different ways, particularly in reference to discourses of race, gender, class and nation.
