In this brilliant overview of parodic praxis in the
Spanish-American novel during the years 1960-1985, Elzbieta
Skłodowska examines several aspects of parody: its role in the
renovation of anachronistic forms of discourse (mock-epic) and the
re-writing of the canon of the historical novel; its function in
transgressing literary formulas (detective novel); its subversive
quality in the counter-discourse of women writers; and the relation
between parody, satire, irony, humor, and metafiction. This sound
analysis of some twenty-five novels, carefully illustrated by works
little treated in critical discourse, takes as its theoretical
basis the works of the Russian Formalists and Linda Hutcheon's
theory of parody.
