The Narrow Pass of Our Nerves

Writing, Coloniality and Postcolonial Theory

Sara Castro-Klarén.

The book analyzes, from the perspective of the coloniality of power, the cultural and political work of colonial subjects such as el Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, Guaman Poma de Ayala or Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

"Sara Castro Klarén’s The Narrow Pass of Our Nerves is a triumph of postcolonial thought. In this superb selection of essays she brilliantly analyzes the work of a set of Latin American writers who produced a pioneering corpus of thought about societies torn by Iberian colonialism and US imperialism." Fernando Coronil, CUNY

"Speaking from the interface of literary studies, intellectual history, political philosophy, and cultural theory, Castro-Klarén intervenes in vital and complex debates with uncommon erudition and elegant arguments that trace a wide critical arc and engage readers from multiple locations." Vicky Unruh, University of Kansas
