Latin American Studies examines variously several current themes in Latin American creative life : the theme of disability in contemporary Peruvian-Mexican writer Mario Bellatin s works, an analysis of the American poet William Carlos Williams together with hispanophile Waldo Frank and the Peruvian Jose Carlos Mariategui highlighting the intersection of English and Spanish-speaking Americas; biographical accounts of Latin American figures, confronting the traditional literary criticism that views Latin American writing as an echo of either American or European authors. Cervantes is argued to be the main influence on Gabriel Garcia Marquez rather than William Faulkner, gender is examined in Edwidge Danticat's writings of the Haitian revolution. Other writers under consideration include the Puerto Rican novelist Edgardo Vega Yunque, comparison of the Mexican Fernando Del Paso s playful and encyclopaedic style contrasted with the Cuban Jose Manuel Prieto's intercultural and new baroque style. Antes que anochezca the memoirs of Reinaldo Arenas openly deal with homosexuality, and his fantastic blend of fact and fiction which portrays Cuba, Castro and Revolutionary persecution with passion, anger and biting mockery, is transformed significantly by Julian Schnabel in his film adaptation of the memoir, Before Night Falls (2000). The focuses switches to Argentina with the next contribution that uses queer theory to read the historical and artistic specificities of the strangeness of Argentine Lucrecia Martel's cinema. The collection continues with a consideration of how young filmmakers intervene in the formation of collective memory about the last Argentine dictatorship. Next, Dos veces junio, written by Martan Kohan, and Marco Bechis Garage Olimpo, insist on new ways of representing the past as part of a traumatic experience of Argentina's violent political regime.
