A study that challenges many traditional ideas about Cañas y barro and re-evaluates it as a complex, many layered fabric informed by sources both personal and literary in origin. This book is significant in that it re(dis)covers the novel's female characters and views them within the context of life in a male-dominated society and their reactions to the codes they inherit with it and in that it raises questions about the book's touted objectivity, especially in those sections of the novel that deal with women.
