Claribel Alegría and Central American Literature
Edited by Sandra M. Boschetto-Sandoval and Marcia Phillips McGowan
These essays examine the multifaceted work of the Central American author whom Latin American literary historians consider precursor of “cultural dialogism” in poetry and fiction. As poet, essayist, journalist, novelist, and writer of “quasi–testimonio,” Alegría’s multiple discourses transgress the boundaries between traditional and postmodern political theories and practices.
