Blending cultural studies, literary analysis, and political and intellectual history, Elena Garro and Mexico’s Modern Dreams shows how Elena Garro’s life and work expose the impasses inherent to the concept of Mexican modernity. While Garro is well known for the gossip and conflicts she created in literary and political circles, this study explores her radical critique of Mexican modernity and its intellectual apologists. Her critique also applies to the nation’s twenty-first-century crisis of globalization, state power, and violence.
