The Postmodern Fuentes

With the publication of Terra Nostra (1975), Carlos Fuentes established a definitive shift in the narrative representation of the self, of time, and of the text itself, initiating a period of textual production that aligned Fuentes with contemporary postmodern expression. This study examines Fuentes's fiction (1975-90), addressing issues of identity, textual composition, discourse, and history and incorporates the six post-Terra Nostra novels as a whole.
