Notes

General Note
Originally published in Uruguay in 1950.
General Note
"A surreal, nightmarish book about women's struggle for autonomy--and how that struggle is (always, inevitably) met with violence." --Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties A groundbreaking feminist classic from 1950s Uruguay, The Naked Woman was met with scandal and outrage due to its erotic content, cynicism, and stylistic ingenuity. The novel follows Rebeca Linke's ardent, ultimately tragic, attempt to free herself from a hostile society. Juxtaposing fantastic imagery and brutal depictions of violence, Somers will resonate with readers of Clarice Lispector, Angela Carter, and Djuna Barnes."--Page 4 of cover.
Bibliography
Includes bibliographical references.
Description
A woman's feminist awakening drives a hypocritical village to madness in rural Uruguay
