9781846317484: Cuba's Wild East: A Literary Geography of Oriente (American Tropics Towards a Literary Geography LUP)

Cuba's Wild East: A Literary Geography of Oriente recounts a literary history of modern Cuba that has four distinctive and interrelated characteristics. Oriented to the east of the island, it looks aslant at a Cuban national literature that has sometimes been indistinguishable from a history of Havana. Given the insurgent and revolutionary history of that eastern region, it recounts stories of rebellion, heroism, and sacrifice. Intimately related to places and sites which now belong to a national pantheon, its corpus-while including fiction and poetry-is frequently written as memoir and testimony. As a region of encounter, that corpus is itself resolutely mixed, featuring a significant proportion of writings by US journalists and novelists as well as by Cuban writers.

About the Author:


Peter Hulme is Professor of Literature at the University of Essex. Previous publications include ed. (with Tim Youngs) The Cambridge Companion to Travel Writing (CUP, 2002), Remnants of Conquest: The Caribs and Their Visitors, 1877-1998 (OUP, 2000) and ed. (with Francis Barker and Margaret Iversen) Cannibalism and the Colonial World (CUP, 1998).

Review:


"Throughout all eight essays Hulme's prose skillfully integrates close textual analysis with detailed historical and geographical contexts, making the book very accessible to readers (like this reviewer) who are allergic to pure disquisitions on texts. Reading Cuba's Wild East feels like taking an actual trip through the region. The book constitutes a truly exceptional, readable, informative, and significant contribution to the study of Cuban history, culture, and politics."--New West Indian Guide


"This innovative and rewarding work [...] achieves the long overdue feat of putting the region of Oriente firmly on the cultural and historical geographical map."--Journal of Historical Geography


"Cuba's Wild East offers an engaging and well researched insight into literary eastern Cuba. Its efforts to cover a wide range of sources are remarkable and it adds to a fine body of scholarly research."--Bulletin of Latin American Research
