Exemplary Ambivalence in Late Nineteenth-Century Spanish America: Narrating Creole Subjectivity casts new light on the role of exemplary narrative in 19th-century Spanish America, highlighting the multiplicity of didactic writing and its dynamic relationship with readers as active interpretive agents. Drawing on literary and historical models of creole heterogeneity, Austin's study probes the unstable social and ethnic fictions of the creole elite as they portray themselves through the flawed canvas of exemplary discourse. Exemplary Ambivalence examines creole subjectivity through postcolonial and Latin American theoretical lenses to show that Spanish American creole subjects, always multiple, reveal their ideological ambivalence through exemplary narrative. This study examines a cross-section of canonical and lesser-known texts written toward the end of the 19th century by authors across Spanish America, including Eugenio Cambaceres (Argentina), Jose Asuncion Silva (Colombia), Jose Marti (Cuba), Clorinda Matto de Turner (Peru), and Juana Manuela Gorriti (Argentina).These texts range from realist and modernist novels to a cookbook of multiple authorship, and engage issues of nationalism, citizenship, gender, indigenous rights, and liberal ideologies within the historical context of Spanish America's weakened democracies and modernizing economies at the end of the 19th century. Austin's research fills a critical gap within studies of the 19th century in Spanish America as it explores the inconsistencies of exemplary texts and emphasizes the forms, sources, and implications of creole ideological and narrative multiplicity. By recognizing the inherent ambivalence exemplary discourse, along with creole writing and reading subjectivities, Exemplary Ambivalence opens fresh perspectives on canonical texts while it also explores some of the non-canonical, hybrid, and fragmentary texts of 19th-century reading culture.
