Summary
"Grounding his study on the work of Derrida and Bataille, Abeyta focuses on the theme of the gift in Carlos Fuentes's Terra Nostra. Analyzing how gift giving, excess, expenditure, sacrifice, and exchange shape the novel, he reveals its relevance to current discussions about the relationship between art and the gift"--Provided by publisher
