Cuban Writers and Artists after the Revolution
Linda S. Howe
"A brilliant synthesis of Cuba's cultural production since the Revolution. Linda Howe offers the ultimate guide to understanding the cultural policies of the island. . . . Fascinating and comprehensive."
Cristina García, editor of Cubanísimo
Defining the political and aesthetic tensions that have shaped Cuban culture for over forty years, Linda Howe explores the historical and political constraints imposed upon Cuban artists and intellectuals during and after the Revolution. Focusing on the work of Afro-Cuban writers Nancy Morejón and Miguel Barnet, Howe exposes the complex relationship between Afro-Cuban intellectuals and government authorities as well as the racial issues present in Cuban culture.
"Foxy, courageous, well-informed." Eduardo González, Johns Hopkins University
Linda S. Howe is associate professor of Spanish and director of Latin American Studies at Wake Forest University
