“The texts in ’Til She Go No More are characterized by an extreme sobriety and concision, in which suggestion and ellipsis predominate. The nucleus of the narration is precisely that of concentration, concentration in the sentence, in the paragraph, in the entire composition. Rather than delving in psychological or social realism, the author submerges the reader in a phantasmal reality, where the characters emerge as murky shadows that hover and dissolve in a common background of anonymity. Women with their backs turned, colorless portraits, always painted in shades of grey, rather than fully sketched individuals, as if weightlessness chained them to their impoverished lives. A spectral texture, as if from a dream, with desperate tonalities, in which hope is merely an illusion of an inevitable defeat. Dreams and hopelessness coincide in this narrative, conferring upon it a dark authenticity and a tone of rare and emotionless intensity” —Jaime Concha, literary critic
"Til She Go No More presents a history of defenselessness and ulcerated solitude through cowardly and silent humiliation, dissolved in arid lands swept away by dust and the wind, where the hopeless futures, afflictions and impossible desires of the inhabitants come to nest, narrated by the infantile gaze of the protagonist and victim. This narrative offers a perfect balance between the moving content that endeavors to communicate and the innocent, intimate language that transmits a conscience that still has not been strangulated by the malice of adults. The construction of language is impeccable and responds perfectly to the purposes of the narrative. —José Promis, literary critic
Til She Go No More, Beatriz García Huidobro simultaneously maps the coordinates of the intimate story of a female teenager and the broader historical and socioeconomic reality of Chile in the early 70’s. The story is narrated in the form of a monologue, through the eyes of a young female protagonist who resides in desolate town in the mountainous region where the landscape is bleak and barren, and men futilely toil in unproductive fields. The aridness of the land mirrors the hopeless and hapless lives of the characters whose dreams are futile and futures are compromised. Like silhouettes in sepia, the protagonist and others are sketched as characters that live out a wearisome, tenuous existence, shrouded in ambiguity, in a circular time that is based upon the repetition of daily chores and the changing of the seasons, marked by the events in the life cycle.
