Guayas, 1989) and Turba de signos (Abrapalabra, 1995). Critics have noted her treatment of feminist issues and her exploration of the writing process. Her stories depict the marginalization of women who oppose the traditional patriarchy and who dare to appropriate the male discursive system (M. Victoria Garcia Serrano). Her use of self-referential narrators is a most appropriate means of portraying a world where different levels of reality co-exist; the Writer attempts to subvert those realities in order to "make the reader aware of the innate" fictitious nature of texts" (Manuel F. Medina). Gilda Holst teaches Literature and Communications at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Guayaquil.
