About this product
- DescriptionThis Very Short Introduction chronicles the trends and traditions of modern Latin American literature, arguing that Latin American literature developed as a continent-wide phenomenon, not just an assemblage of national literatures, in moments of political crisis. With the Spanish American War came Modernismo, the end of World War I and the Mexican Revolution produced the avant-garde, and the Cuban Revolution sparked a movement in the novel that came to be known as the Boom. Within this narrative, the author covers all of the major writers of Latin American literature, from Andres Bello and Jose Maria de Heredia, through Borges and Garcia Marquez, to Fernando Vallejo and Roberto Bolano.
- Author BiographyRoberto Gonzalez Echevarria is the Sterling Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literature at Yale University and the author of many books on Spanish, Latin American, and comparative literature. He was awarded the 2010 National Humanities Medal by the President of the United States.
