Review

"A lift to read.beautifully produced.ÝZamora¨ argues exhilaratingly that an aesthetic of fusion, adornment and exuberance rose phoenix-like in the aftermath of conquest, shaping an influential mode of fantasy, as in the art and architecture of Mexico and the marvelous fictions of Borges." -- Marina Warner "Times Literary Supplement" (12/01/2006)

"A lift to read...beautifully produced...[Zamora] argues exhilaratingly that an aesthetic of fusion, adornment and exuberance rose phoenix-like in the aftermath of conquest, shaping an influential mode of fantasy, as in the art and architecture of Mexico and the marvelous fictions of Borges."

--Marina Warner"Times Literary Supplement" (12/01/2006)

"This book is a bold venture joining visual studies with literary studies to revise our narratives of art, history, and literature, and it is also a splendid example of the possibilities of comparative literature as an endeavor engaged with the materiality of its cultural and historical object of investigation....Parkinson Zamora builds her masterful study on the methodological scaffolding that defines Comparative Literature as the field where heterogeneous elements, paradoxical realities, and heterodox visions converge."

--ACLA, Harry Levin Prize citation, 2007 winner "ACLA, Harry Levin Prize, 2007 winner "
