Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is an excellent book and an important intervention on debates about literary and cultural studies on Latin America. What emerges is not a mere defense of modern Latin American high culture, so-called, but a nuanced and balanced appreciation of the place of 'high' art in Latin American modernity, which brings out literary Modernism's complex articulation of positive and negative aspects of ideas of tradition and modernity in a Latin American context. Sharman's study is a valuable corrective to dominating trends in criticism in Hispanic Studies and beyond." - Professor Phillip Swanson, University of Sheffield"Sharman has written a scholarly, thought-provoking, admirably balanced study that makes an important contribution to the fields of literary theory and cultural studies as well as to the study of modern and contemporary Spanish-American literature." - Jorge Luis Castillo, University of California, Santa Barbara
