Reading North by South
Book Description:

Concerned with misleading interpretations of literature and culture that dominate Latin American studies, Larsen proposes the need for a freshly conceived historical materialist approach to Latin American texts and cultural practices. He provides insightful commentaries on political discourses, cultural events, films, and literary texts, as he draws upon a wide diversity of texts written in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Of particular interest is Larsen's discussion of writings from the Caribbean, an area that is not frequently included in Latin American studies.
