New Intersections

Essays on Culture and Literature in the Post-Modern and Post-Colonial Condition

Fernando de Toro.

These essays deliver innovative and valuable aspects for a new reading of parts of late 19th century Latin American cultural critique, but above all of 20th century Modernist and Post-Modern literary production.
New Intersections is a hard-hitting argumentative collection of essays which should be considered by all who are interested in the world after the demise of colonial domination and in the midst of the new reality of the paradox of imperial globalization and the world-wide rise of thousands of regionalisms if not nationalisms.
