The Politics of Spanish American Modernismo, initially published in 1998, elucidates the professional and literary means by which Spanish American modernistas negotiated a cultural politics of rapprochement with Spain and Europe in order to differentiate their Americanness from that of the United States. Gerard Aching argues that these turn-of-the-century men of letters were in fact responsible for the burgeoning role that intellectuals and writers had (and continue to have) in defining pan-Hispanicism. Aching's arguments contribute to debates about modernity and the colonial/postcolonial condition in nineteenth-century Hispanic literatures. The interdisciplinary approach will appeal to scholars in literature, cultural studies, Latin American studies and history.
