Abstract

Elena Poniatowska’s extraordinary literary output and her delightful personality justly merit her position as Mexico’s most dearly loved and highly respected author. I consider myself truly fortunate to have had the luxury of intensively studying her writings during the process of my doctoral dissertation. In this essay, I recall my introduction to Poniatowska’s work, her impact on my postgraduate studies, and how I, as a historian, employ her testimonial literature in my classes and the teaching of undergraduate students in the United Kingdom.
