As the prologue, by one of the most eminent scholars in the field, Professor William Rowe, of Birkbeck College, University of London, makes clear, Dr. D’Allemand takes us through the work of five of the key practitioners of Latin American Literary Criticism and shows us what can be done with it. She deals with Mariategui, Rama, Losada, Cornejo Polar and Sarlo, achieving a genuinely continental coverage. Dr. D’Allemand’s expertise and her previous publishing experience in this area come together to make this volume an original and important contribution to Latin American critical and cultural studies.” – Professor E. R. P. Vieira, Ministry of Culture Visiting Fellow, Centre for Brazilian Studies, University of Oxford
