Dyfyniadau

‘The 2 October 1968 massacre in Tlatelolco (the Plaza de la Tres
Culturas) was a loss of innocence for the Mexican national imaginary.
The sustained act of state terrorism shattered forever the myth of a
benevolent socially and culturally stable society. Mexico has been
coming to terms ever since with the aftermath of that event. Cultural and literary histories have generally adhered to versions provided by anti-establishment sources. The enormous value of Carpenter’s examination of pertinent textual production is the careful attention paid to the voices of the defenders of the State, with the result that she has provided a far more nuanced account than we are used to studying.’
- Professor David William Foster, Arizona State University
