"Lois Parkinson Zamora is professor of comparative literature and art history at the University of Houston. "The Inordinate Eye benefits from the broad, synthetic sweep of Zamora's interartistic argument, considering both verbal and visual representation in Latin America from pre-Columbian imagery to Rivera, Garcia Marquez, and Kahlo. Her view allows for a nonbinary vision of relations between imposed European cultures and American recuperation and resistance through the Baroque, New World Baroque, and Neobaroque. She advocates seeing with an 'inordinate eye' - one not bound by rational categories alone." - Margaret Greer, Duke University"
