Ella tiene un enemigo concreto: la feminidad que es capaz de destruir la libertad, el placer y la aventura. Rafael H. Quite remarkably, Boullosa surmounts two obstacles that loom both in her background as a poet and in the historical period that defines the speech of her characters.
In both cases the author successfully holds out the excesses of poetic and pseudoarchaic diction to produce a fine piece of fiction when many, treading on the same waters, have failed. She becomes a pirate, is kidnapped, has to pass for a colonial Spanish grandee, the Conde Urquiza, and is later hanged.
An Indian saves her, however, by cutting open her breasts and filling her with a magic Aztec water. A fairy-tale tone merges with disgressions reminiscent of the tales of Italo Calvino, with dreams and with zany plot-twists, all finely worked in a delicate, humorous Mexican Spanish.
The feminist point of view is not forced or schematic; Claire simply resents being a woman. They are questioning omniscient fiction -and history- writing. New writers, often women, feel they can be quirkily good without having to be the voices or interpreters of a continent.
