Afro-Puerto Ricans in the Short Story

85.00 BBD

This anthology is the first of its kind on Puerto Rican literature. The comprehensive introduction traces the history of the representation of Afro-Puerto Ricans in the short story, paying special attention to circumstances that developed - particularly during the decade of the sixties - and the manner in which these circumstances influenced the portrayal of Afro-Puerto Ricans in the island's literature. The stories are chosen in order to illustrate the effect of this influence. A significant contribution to the corpus of critical literature on the Puerto Rican short story, this is a valuable resource for courses on the development of the short story, and on the Afro-Puerto Rican theme in the island's literature.
