A Pan-American Life: Selected Poetry and Prose of Muna Lee (Americas)

A Pan-American Life: Selected Poetry and Prose of Muna Lee (Americas) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The extraordinary Muna Lee was a brilliant writer, lyric poet, translator, diplomat, feminist and rights activist, and, above all, a Pan-Americanist. During the twentieth century, she helped shape the literary and social landscapes of the Americas. This is the first biography of her remarkable life and a collection of her diverse writings, which  embody her vision of Pan America, an old concept that remains new and meaningful today.

About the Author

    Muna Lee (1895-1965) was a celebrated lyric poet, translator and advocate of Latin American literature, feminist, and scholar. She was the first wife of Luis Muñoz Marín, who became Puerto Ricos first elected governor. She was appointed to a state department post by Franklin Delano Roosevelt and served as an inter-American cultural specialist from 1941 until her retirement in 1965.

    Jonathan Cohen, author of prize-winning translations of Latin American poetry, is a pioneering scholar in the field of inter-American literature, for which he has received prestigious national research awards. He is writer/editor of the surgery department at Stony Brook University, and also a member of the affiliated faculty of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies program there.
