Main Themes in Twentieth-Century Afro-Hispanic Caribbean Poetry:
A Literary Sociology
This book redresses an imbalance in Latin American scholarship, arguing for inclusion of more Afro-Hispanic poets in the Caribbean literary canon. The poets are Nancy Morejón, Pedro Pérez Sarduy, Exilia Saldaña, and Efraín Nadereau from Cuba, Aída Cartagena Portalatín, Blas Jiménez and Sherezada (Chiqui) Vicioso from The Dominican Republic and the Puerto Ricans Mayra Santos Febres and Magaly Quiñones.
“This monograph makes an extremely important contribution to scholarship, advancing knowledge and understanding in a number of subject areas studied in undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs in universities in Europe, the West Indies and the U.S. Dr. Roberts’ study will prove an invaluable tool for students who wish to acquire a deeper understanding of the literary production of Afro-Hispanic Caribbean poets. At the same time, it will be greatly appreciated by scholars of Postcolonial Studies and Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean poetry, who wish to undertake informed comparative analyses.” – Prof. Patricia Odber de Baubeta, University of Birmingham
