|Summary:|| This book recounts a literary history of modern Cuba. It looks aslant at a Cuban national literature that has sometimes been indistinguishable from a history of Havana. Given the insurgent and revolutionary history of that eastern region, it recounts stories of rebellion, heroism and sacrifice. Intimately related to places and sites which now belong to a national pantheon, its corpus is frequently written as memoir and testimony. As a region of encounter, that corpus is itself resolutely mixed, featuring a significant proportion of writings by US as well as Cuban writers.
