Elisa Sampson Vera Tudela sheds new light on important aspects of Palmas work. She offers a fresh interpretation of the relations between history and literature - perhaps the most discussed aspect of Palmas work - engaging with new critical thinking on historicism and examining the significance of the marginal and the anecdotal in Palmas work. By using the tools of postcolonial cultural criticism, Vera Tudela considers Palmas encounter with modernity, arguing that his recuperation of colonial history plays a crucial part in imagining the modern future.

Most innovatively, Vera Tudela examines the multiple and contradictory notions of femininity in nineteenth-century Latin America and in Palmas writing, showing how a historical consideration of the sexual politics of cultural production transforms our understanding of many of the assumptions about this period. Finally, by applying the insights of cultural geography in analysing the racial, sexual and political identity of domestic, urban and national space in Palmas writing, Vera Tudela demonstrates that Palmas literary maps and topographies are uniquely revelatory of questions of power and agency.

In its exploration of sexual politics and nationhood, Ricardo Palmas Tradiciones presents Palma as a proto-modernist who paved the way for many of the experiments of twentieth-century Latin American narrative fiction.
