Raymond Leslie Williams:
The Postmodern Novel in Latin America: Politics Culture and the Crisis of Truth - Paperback

1996, ISBN: 9780312164584

ID: 843274833

New York: St. Martin's Press, 1996. 150 Pages Indexed. The foremost post modern Latin American writers of the past twenty-five years are introduced in this well-informed volume that places the current literary scene in its proper political and cultural context. While grounding this movement in the pioneering modernist writings of Jorge Luis Borges in the 1940s and 1950s and tracing this influence through the 1960s Boom heralded by Gabriel Garda Marquez, Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Julio Cortazar, the author argues against critics who have questioned the viability of postmodern literary production in Latin America. Focusing on fiction from the 1970s to the present, Williams discusses the new generation of postmodern writers, which includes the Cuban Severo Sarduy, the Argentine Ricardo Piglia, the Chilean Diamela Elrit, the Puerto Rican Luis Rafael Sanchez, the Mexicans Jose Emilio Pacheco and Carmen Boullosa, the Colombians Albaluda Angel and R. H. Moreno-Duran, and the Ecuadorian Jorge Enrique Adourn, as well as many others. With topics of discussion ranging from political agendas, subversion, and parody to truth claims, marginalism, and the testimonio. The author's argument not only supports postmodernism as a legitimate movement, but he also extends its authority from the North Atlantic region to the Caribbean, Mexico, and the Southern Cone. Contents in Seven Chapters: Introduction to the Spanish American Modernist and Postmodern Novel, Mexican Postmodernities . Andean Postmodernities, Postmodernities in the Southern Cone, Caribbean Postmodernities, In the Margins, and Conclusion. Plus Preface, Notes, and Selected Bibliography. . First Printing.

Details of the book
The Postmodern Novel in Latin America: Politics Culture and the Crisis of Truth

Recent Latin American cultural and political magazines have noted the trend of postmodernity in the literature of the region, with a range of responses. Some critics consider it a foreign importation and sign of cultural imperialism. Others feel that postmodernism reflects a culture of mass media manipulated by the dominating classes. But the debate has been particularly headed by a new group of young writers who consider themselves postmodern and politically progressive: Severo Sarduy of Cuba, Diamela Eltit of Chile, and R.H. Moreno-Duran of Colombia, among others. By examining a group of the most representative innovative writers active today, Williams argues that the postmodern novel in Latin America is as political and valuable as its more traditional and modern predecessors.
