Synopsis

Synopsis

Available in Spanish for the first time in the United States.

From Rosario Ferré (nominated for the National Book Award for The House on the Lagoon), her first work of fiction, long out of print in any edition, in the original Spanish and including a previously unpublished story and two poems.

Papeles de Pandora contains the stories that first brought Rosario Ferré to the attention of Spanish-language readers throughout the world. In this collection, Ferré introduces her major theme: the position of women in a fast-changing but still patriarchal culture. In "La muñeca menor"  ("The Youngest Doll"), a maiden aunt uses her skill at making honey-filled dolls to get revenge. "La bella durmiente" ("The Sleeping Beauty"), recounts the brief life of a young dancer through letters and newspaper clippings that reveal much more than they say. And in "Cuando las mujeres quieren a los hombres" ("When Women Love Men"), a society lady and a prostitute form a startling alliance after the death of the man they both loved.  Richly imagined, elegantly written, Ferré's stories are early proof of her stature among contemporary Latin American writers.

About Rosario Ferré

Rosario Ferré - Papeles de Pandora
Rosario Ferré nació en 1938 en Ponce, una ciudad en las costa sur de Puerto Rico. Se graduó en el año 1960 de Manjattanville College con un título en literature inglesa. Luego obtuvo una maestría en literature española y latinoamericana en la Universidad de Puerto Rico, y años mas tarde, recibó su doctorado de la Universidad de Maryland.

Comenzó a escribir en la década de los años setenta como redactora y editora de la revista literaria Zona: Carga y Descarga, en la cual se publicaban trabajos de jóvenes escritores puertorriqueños. Colaboradora asidua de los rotativos El Nueva Día y el San Juan Star, Rosario Ferré ha explorado todos los géneros literarios al publicar relatos, poesía, ensayos, biografías y cuatro novelas. Fue galardonada con el premio Liberaturpries del 1992 en Francfort del main (Alemania), y la versión de lengua inglesa de su novela La casa de la laguna quedó como finalista del premio literario estadounidese National Book Award.

Rosario Ferré es reconocida hoy como una de las escritoras más importantes de Puerto Rico.
