Understanding Contemporary Cuba in Visual and Verbal Forms by Max Dorsinville

Borrowing the concept of the "look" or the "gaze" from Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty (defined as "agency in the existential coming to terms of self and otherness"), Dorsinville (English, McGill U., Canada) combines travelogue, memoir, photography, and, primarily, literary criticism in an exploration of the visual in literature centered on modern Cuba and in Cuba itself. He explores his own experiences living in Cuba and writings of Cristina Garcia, Ernest Hemingway, Derek Walcott, Pico Iyer, Graham Greene, and Edmundo Desnoes in order to interrogate imagistic issues of identity and culture Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
