Cecilia Valdés or El Angel Hill

Cirilo Villaverde
Edited by Sibylle Fischer and Translated by Helen Lane

Library of Latin America

Cecilia Valdés is arguably the most important novel of 19th century Cuba. Originally published in New York City in 1882, Cirilo Villaverde's novel has fascinated readers inside and outside Cuba since the late 19th century. In this new English translation, a vast landscape emerges of the moral, political, and sexual depravity caused by slavery and colonialism.
