An exploration of Silvina Ocampo’s revolutionary reimagining of motherhood and childhood.

Silvina Ocampo’s works are currently enjoying unprecedented attention from scholars, writers, journalists, translators, and film directors. This book explores the reason for the growing interest in her work and connects it to her transgressive representations of motherhood and childhood. The unique vantage point of this book, the mother and child dyad, will appeal to readers interested in Latin American literature, women writers, gender studies, and queer theory.
