The Spanish American "Bildungsroman</I>
Acknowledgments here are many people who have contributed to the completion of this book. I am greatly indebted to Peter Elmore, whose insightful readings of Bakhtin helped inspire this work, and to Luis González del Valle, for his expertise, professionalism, and friendship. I am also grateful for Juan Pablo Dabove’s critiques and suggestions for further reading, which stimulated me to explore new angles in my analysis, as well as for the thoughtful input of Vincent Barletta and Robert Ferry. This project benefited greatly from many discussions with friends and colleagues. I would like to thank in particular Rose Brougham, for many late-night conversations on bibliography and subjectivity; Vitelia Cisneros, who provided in- sights into Peruvian receptions of Arguedas’s Agua; Beatriz Loyola and Itzá Zavala, who generously shared their knowledge of Mexican Bildungsromane with me as I constructed the corpus of my study; and Fernando Fabio Sánchez for his suggestions regarding the critical literature on urbanization in Mexico. Many thanks to my colleagues and Dean at Fresno State for their encouragement, and to Saúl Jimé- nez-Sandoval for taking the time to proof and edit my chapter on the Mexican Bildungsroman. My graduate students serve as a constant reminder of why I so enjoy this topic; their questions and enthusiasm spurred me to continue my research into travel and formation. Finally, I wish to express gratitude to my editors at Peter Lang for their kind support throughout this process. T
