Description: Nancy Vogeley examines the emergence of the novel in Mexico at the conclusion of Spain's 300 years of colonial rule. Acknowledged as Spanish America's first novelist, Jose Joaquin Fernandez de Lizardi introduced the genre into Mexico during its war of independence. His novel El Periquillo Sarniento, published in 1816, became the symbol of new nationhood, and his commentary on social issues contributed to the revolutionary dialogue.Focusing on the Periquillo and three other novels by Lizardi, Vogeley analyzes these stories for their decolonizing thinking -- as an innovative linguistic discourse in a setting where the Inquisition and colonial tradition controlled production. She argues that Lizardi's satiric portrayal of ugly contemporary realities forced readers away from the text, and thus away from blind acceptance of authority and the mechanical repetition of words. She concludes that the birth of the novel came with the death of the catechism.This first book-length treatment of Lizardi will be of interest to Latin Americanists, literary historians, and those concerned with imperial histories and the topic of decolonization.
