Abstract

Sklodowska analyzes postmodern parody in Margarita Mateo Palmer’s 1995 experimental book Ella escribía poscrítica [She Wrote Post-Criticism]. Uniquely steeped in the most radical (self-)parody, Ella escribía poscrítica both merits and resists critical scrutiny. Sklodowska situates the text within a broader context of post-Soviet Cuba and, more specifically, against the backdrop of the profound socio-economic and ideological crisis of the 1990s known as the “Special Period in Time of Peace.” She demonstrates how Mateo Palmer’s book, produced amid the everyday drudgery of the struggle for survival, uses gendered performance to challenge the fundamental tenets of “western” postmodernism by means of irreverent (re)production of its metadiscourse and a dizzying amalgamation of fiction and academic criticism, testimony and (pseudo)autobiography, letters and interviews, footnotes and lecture notes.
