Synopsis

Martinez should be the first choice as a reference guide to writers in Cuba or in exile therefrom. Choice This one-volume dictionary is designed to acquaint the English-speaking public with creative writers who contributed significantly to Cuban literature between 1900 and the mid-1980s. Emphasizing literary figures who achieved some measure of international recognition, it presents alphabetically arranged profiles of approximately 120 authors, together with information on literary genres, selected magazines and journals, and influential critics. Each entry begins with a biographical sketch of the author, followed by a discussion of the writer's work and references to relevant critical commentary. A bibliography of major works and secondary sources is supplied for each writer. Essays on literary genres provide an overview of trends, styles, and characteristic features of the genres that have been of particular importance in Cuba since 1900. Written by a distinguished group of critics and scholars in the field, this dictionary will be a useful resource for studies in modern Latin American and Cuban literature.
