A Failed Utopia in Marcela Del Río's "Proceso a Faubritten"
Manickam, Samuel
Hispania, v97 n1 p125-139 Mar 2014
In Marcela del Río's science fiction novel "Proceso a Faubritten," utopia comes in the form of eternal life for all of humanity, thanks to Dr. Alexander Faubritten's "Bomba L." This polyphonic work includes diaries by Faubritten and his Mexican lover, María Corona. In my analysis of these two diaries, I will show how Faubritten overreaches as a scientist by inventing the Bomba L, while Corona in the guise of Malinche levels a critique of would-be utopias imposed upon humanity through patriarchal unilateral decisions.
