10 February 2012: Peter Hulme's new book on Cuba

Cuba's Wild East: a Literary Geography of Oriente

University of Liverpool Press

Professor Peter Hulme has launched his new book "Cuba's Wild East: a Literary Geography of Oriente" at a special event held in the university's Albert Sloman Library. The University of Liverpool Press publication recounts a literary history of modern Cuba that has four distinctive and interrelated characteristics.

Oriented to the east of the island, it looks aslant at a Cuban national literature that has sometimes been indistinguishable from a history of Havana. Given the insurgent and revolutionary history of that eastern region, it recounts stories of rebellion, heroism, and sacrifice. Intimately related to places and sites which now belong to a national pantheon, its corpus -while including fiction and poetry -is frequently written as memoir and testimony. As a region of encounter, that corpus is itself resolutely mixed, featuring a significant proportion of writings by US journalists and novelists as well as by Cuban writers.

This latest work is based on Professor Hulme's investigations for the American Tropics: Towards a Literary Geography research project, which was funded by the Arts and Humantities Research Council (AHRC). A copy of the book will be available shortly in the Albert Sloman Library.
