Latin American Vanguards: The Art of Contentious Encounters Paperback - 1994

by Vicky Unruh


From the publisher

In this first comprehensive study of Latin America's literary vanguards of the 1920s and 1930s, Vicky Unruh explores the movement's provocative and polemic nature. Latin American vanguardism-a precursor to the widely acclaimed work of contemporary Latin American writers-was stimulated by the European avant-garde movements of the World War I era. But as Unruh's wide-ranging study attests, the vanguards of Latin America-emerging from the continent's own historical circumstances-developed a very distinct character and voice.

Through manifestos, experimental texts, and ribald public performance, the vanguardists' work intertwined art, culture, and the politics of the day to produce a powerful brand of aesthetic activism, one that sparked an entire rethinking of the meaning of art and culture throughout Latin America.

From the rear cover

"[This book] will become the standard reference on the Latin American vanguard. The time was ripe for an ambitious undertaking like this one, and Unruh does not disappoint."--Gustavo P�rez-Firmat, Duke University
