‘In this hugely engaging and delightfully written exploration of Doña Bárbara and its popular on-screen afterlife, Jenni Lehtinen presents the eponymous protagonist as a potentially endlessly morphing manifestation of untamed barbarism, glamour, seductiveness and female empowerment. Bárbara becomes a marker of transnational mobility and social and cultural evolution, both in terms of her textual, filmic and televisual incarnations, and in terms of her public reception and re-imagination by audiences and fans. The story of Doña Bárbara becomes the story of shifting conceptions of Latinity and a still unfolding tale of the powerful possibilities of adaptation and transformation.’
-Professor Philip Swanson, University of Sheffield
