The book introduces readers to some of Cubas most eminent and engaging voices by examining some of the historical tropes put forth by major writers. Drawing on an array of interpretive approaches from mythopoetic analysis to phenomenology, West addresses the work of Nancy Morejon, Alejo Carpentier, Virgilio Pinera, Dulce Maria Loynaz, Jose Lezama Lima, and Severo Sarduy.

This poetic look at Cubas rich and turbulent history through the eyes of its writers will be of interest to students and scholars of Latin American history and culture.
