The author of the passage suggests that A Dream falls short in which of the following respects?
I enjoyed A Dream of Light & Shadow: Portraits of Latin American Women Writers for the same reasons that, as a child, I avidly consumed womens biographies: the fascination with how the biographical details of another females life are represented and interpreted. A Dream offers a rich read, varied in both the lives and texts of the women portrayed, and the perspectives and styles of the sixteen essayists. Yet, as an adult, I have come to demand of any really great book a self-consciousness about the tenuous nature of representations of reality, a critical contextualization of florid detail, and a self-awareness of the role of ideology in our lives. In these critical senses, A Dream is 10 inadequate.It does not appear to recognize that representations of reality can be unreliable., It seems to focus on stylistic variety at the expense of accuracy of detail., It offers a wealth of detail without sufficient critical examination of that detail.
