Description - A Place in the Sun? by Catherine Davies

Women have published a varied selection of work in Cuba throughout the 20th century and their writings give an insight into the recent history of the country. In this book, Catherine Davies develops a theoretically informed feminist reading of works by authors such as Dulce Maria Loynaz and the poet Fina Garcia Marruz who developed their styles in the pre-revolutionary period, and black and mulatto poets such as Nancy Morejon, Georgina Herrera and Excilia Saldana from the post-1959 socialist era. The author reads these key texts in ways that show how women's writing can open up areas that resist alignment into the "grand narratives" - of liberalism, Marxism - that have usually dominated interpretations of Cuban culture. A theoretical intervention into debates around representation, the book should be of value to students and academics in post-colonial theory and women's studies, as well as in Spanish, Latin-American and comparative literature.
