In Mexican literature, the subject of death has been present since the earliest texts. The novels Vestido de Novia, by Socorro Venegas, and Umami, by Laia Jufresa, re-address this subject, but from nostalgia’s perspective, a feeling relatively unexplored in the narrative written by young women until now. Overcome mourning, the protagonists manage to assimilate a series of memories that plunge them into nostalgia, getting rid of depression. This paper will analyze both novels, aiming to point out this singularity, which turns them into a benchmark for future studies on the subject.
