Literary culture in Cuba

Revolution, nation-building and the book

Par Kumaraswami and Antoni Kapcia

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Now available in paperback
  • Corrects simplistic notions of how literature is produced, promoted and consumed in the revolutionary Cuban context, but also in a more general framework
  • Explores the contemporary situation of literary culture in Cuba and thus goes beyond the crisis of the 1990s to the vastly under-researched 2000s
  • Based on the insights gained from extensive interviews with a wide range of actors in Cuba, and sustained analysis of the issues that emerge from their contributions
  • Fuses two disciplines DS history and cultural studies DS in order to contribute an original approach, providing both a chronological perspective and a theoretical framework applicable to other contexts
