A Hermeneutical Approach to Religious Discourse in Mexican Narrative explores the complex phenomenon of religious discourse in contemporary Mexico as it appears in four works of Mexican literature: Rosario Castellano’s
Oficio de tinieblas, Elena Poniatowska’s
Hasta no verte Jesús mío, Vicente Leñero’s
El evangelio de Lucas Gavilán, and Carmen Boullosa’s
La Milagrosa. Catherine L. Caufield examines how it is possible to write lived experience as fiction as well as how it is possible that fiction can stimulate the reader to imagine the lived world differently.
