Editorial Reviews

Review

 “Rosenberg offers an inspired, necessary rereading of Latin America's avant-gardes as a self-aware negotiation with the expanding geopolitics of their time. Through agile analyses of work by key vanguard writers and in spirited dialogue with present critical debates, he also builds a compelling case for the avant-gardes' resilient import for current discussions of the global dynamics of cultural production and their anticipatory challenge to the putative modern/postmodern divide.”
--Vicky Unruh, University of Kansas


“Rosenberg's sophisticated monograph constitutes a novel approach to the Latin American avant-gardes. His interpretation of the phenomenon, which considers the avant-gardes from a global cultural vantage point, is informed by the most current scholarship in postcolonial and cultural studies. Argued with elegance and nuance, the book offers a compelling new perspective on a case of 'peripheral' modernity that will doubtless become the canonical reading of the period.”
--Carlos J. Alonso, Columbia University


“Exhaustively researched and outstandingly composed.”
—Bruce Dean Willis, The Latin Americanist

Format: Paperback
The Avant-Garde And Geopolitics In Latin America is a close study of cannonical Latin American avant-garde texts of the 1920s and 1930s, including novels, travel writing, journalism, and poetry, revealing them as seeds of modern Western culture and precursors of global culture. Author Fernando J. Rosenberg (asst. professor, Dept. of Spanish and Portuguese, Yale University) scrutinizes the long-term global and political implications of Latin American literature, supporting his conclusions with extensive notes and references. Especially recommended for Latin American literature and history students, The Avant-Garde And Geopolitics In Latin America an advanced discourse of cultural reverberations that far transcend their decade, and even their century, of origin.
