Book Description :

25th Anniversary Edition "A magnificent treasure for all cultures and all time.” --St. Petersburg Times It is November 25, 1960, and three beautiful sisters have been found near their wrecked Jeep at the bottom of a 150-foot cliff on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The official state newspaper reports their deaths as accidental. It does not mention that a fourth sister lives. Nor does it explain that the sisters were among the leading opponents of Gen. Rafael Leónidas Trujillo’s dictatorship. It doesn’t have to. Everybody knows of Las Mariposas--the Butterflies. In this extraordinary novel, the voices of all four sisters--Minerva, Patria, María Teresa, and the survivor, Dedé--speak across the decades to tell their own stories, from secret crushes to gunrunning, and to describe the everyday horrors of life under Trujillo’s rule. Through the art and magic of Julia Alvarez’s imagination, the martyred Butterflies live again in this novel of courage and love, and the human costs of political oppression.

Book Description :

This dissertation examines the lives of four sisters, living under the dictator, Rafael Trujillo, in Julia Alvarez's In the Time of the Butterflies written in 1994. As the first woman to write about the trujillato , or a novel about the Rafael Trujillo dictatorship, she challenges the national narratives of Dominican Literature. The trujillato has traditionally been a male dominated literature. However, Alvarez is able to redefine a woman's role in this type of literature. In this dissertation, I examine the methods Alvarez employs to give the sisters' identity and voice. By giving them voice, they become resistant subjects and by giving them identity, they no longer play the traditional roles in literature. In the next six chapters, I will look at the strategies of resistance Alvarez uses in her novel to develop the characters into recognizable subjects. In the second chapter, I look closely at the totalitarian dictator Rafael Trujillo to give a better understanding of why the Mirabal sisters resisted his regime. The third chapter looks at two narrative forms which can be construed as resistant--the bildungsroman and testimonio . In the fourth chapter, writing the female body is presented as another strategy of resistance which is seen as a vehicle of power, expression and change for female characters. In the fifth chapter, the last strategy of resistance is Julia Alavez's post-colonial critique of the Dominican Republic. I look at the ways colonizers, like the perpetrators of patriarchal domination, have often deprived marginalized people such as women, indigenous people or members of the lower class of identity.

Book Description :

This book provides the first book-length examination of the writings of Julia Alvarez, the author ofHow the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accentsand nearly a dozen other books of fiction and non-fiction and one of today's most widely read Latina writers. Kelli Lyon Johnson perceptively illuminates the themes, ideals, and passions that unite these diverse and rich works, all of which explore issues of understanding and representing identity within a global society. Forced by political oppression to leave the Dominican Republic when still young, Alvarez has lived most of her adult life in the United States. Johnson argues that through her narratives, poetry, and essays, Alvarez has sought to create "a cartography of identity in exile." Alvarez inscribes a geography of identity in her work that joins theory and narrative across multiple genres to create a new map of identity and culture. By asserting that she is "mapping a country that's not on the map," Alvarez places creativity and multiplicity at the center of this emerging cartography of identity. Rather than elaborating a "hybrid" identity that surreptitiously erases distinctions and difference, Alvarez embraces themestizajeor mixture and accumulation of identities, experience, and diversity. To Alvarez, linguistic and cultural multiplicity represents the reality of what it means to be American, and she offers a compelling vision of both self and community in which the homeland Alvarez seeks is the narrative space of her own writings. As Johnson shows, Alvarez will continue to shape American literature by stretching the literary cartography of identity and of the Americas.

She has just retired from the college where she taught English when her beloved husband, Sam, suddenly dies. And then more jolts: her bighearted but unstable sister disappears, and Antonia returns home one evening to find a pregnant, undocumented teenager on her doorstep. Antonia has always sought direction in the literature she loves—lines from her favorite authors play in her head like a soundtrack—but now she finds that the world demands more of her than words. Afterlife is a compact, nimble, and sharply droll novel. Set in this political moment of tribalism and distrust, it asks: What do we owe those in crisis in our families, including—maybe especially—members of our human family? How do we live in a broken world without losing faith in one another or ourselves? And how do we stay true to those glorious souls we have lost?
