dc.description.abstract Men have traditionally dominated the world of literature to the point that even in works written by women, female characters have been molded according to men's standards and myths about gender. As women began to break the cultural and social barriers that had for so long contained them, their fictional counterparts also began to embody these changes. Esther Kleinbold Labovitz suggests in her study The Myth of the Heroine: The Female Bildungsroman that it is only in the twentieth century that the female bildungsroman has presented a new female protagonist. This study examines how Angeles Mastretta's Arrancame la vida goes beyond the Madonna/whore syndrome in Mexican literature and looks to discover new paradigms in women's relationship to themselves and the world around them.
