"Historia, antihistoria e insularidad en la novela latinoamericana" analyzes the colonial period in Latin America through seven contemporary novels. Author Carolyn Wolfenzon specifically examines the relationship between the region's past and present, and the idea that the novels maintain a permanent dialogue with the colonial past, giving the perception that time is stagnant and circular, or ahistorical. Wolfenzon draws examples from the work of Antonio di Benedetto (Argentina), Carmen Boullosa (México), Reinaldo Arenas (Cuba), Enrique Rosas Paravicino (Perú) and Abel Posse (Argentina).
