Displacement, understood in the authors analysis to encompass social, geographical, linguistic and cultural phenomena, is argued to play a consistently central role in Allendes fictional output of this period. Close readings of Allendes texts illustrate the abiding importance of displacement and reconcile two apparently contradictory trends in her writing: as the settings of her fiction have become more international, questions of individual identity have gained in importance.

This discussion employs displacement as a means of engaging with critical debates both on Allendes individual texts and on her status as an original writer. After examining in detail the seven works of fiction written by Allende during this period, the book concludes with reflections on the general trajectory of her work in this genre.
