Being America: Essays on Art, Literature & Identity from Latin America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nonfiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Art. Leading Latin American literary and visual artists explore the explosive and exciting development in the arts as Latin America awakened and emerged from its colonial heritage and domination. The artists discuss their work within the context of the social struggles and changes which are ubiquitous to the region, presenting to a North American audience a first-hand encounter with the diverse aspects of Latin culture and creating a process for dialogue and understanding. This volume arises from the increasing Latinisation of the United States and, the growing impact of Latin American and Latin Americas on life and policy in the US and the nearly impenetrable misinformation which often stands for fact regarding the region.
