El horror del duelo infantil en Veneno para las Hadas, de Carlos Enrique Taboada

Emily Celeste Vázquez Enríquez
pp. 1-15 Through the character of nana Carmen, Veneno para las hadas evokes the wet nurses of the colonial and nineteenth-century eras in Mexico.

In the film, Carmen becomes the materialization of these fears through her fascination with witches, figures she...

Both forms of relating to each other are...
