While all of the writers shared being white and literate, their life experiences were extremely diverse, and themes of repression, both personal and political, permeate the collection. Scott's introduction emphasizes the networks of friendship and support among women writers that developed, especially in the nineteenth century. The new translations make many of these texts available to English-speaking readers for the first time.
Madres del Verbo/Mothers of the Word will be welcomed by students and scholars of Spanish literature and culture and Latin American Studies.
