Una literatura sin residencia fija. Insularidad, historia y dinámica sociocultural en la Cuba del siglo XX

By Ottmar Ette

Abstract

From its very beginnings, Cuban literature has been a literature with no fixed abode: written between Cuba and Mexico (Jose María Heredia), Cuba and Spain (Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda), Cuba and the U.S. (Cirilo Villaverde), or between Cuba, Europe and the Americas (Jose Martí), but to mention the outstanding figures in Cuba's 19th Century. This article tries to unfold and develop the consequences of this new perspective by insisting on the specific «frictional» character of Cuban literature and culture today.<br><br>Desde sus inicios, la literatura cubana se ha constituido como literatura sin residencia fija: entre Cuba y México (José María Heredia), entre Cuba y España (Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda), entre Cuba y Estados Unidos (Cirilo Villaverde) o entre Cuba, Europa y las Américas (Jose Martí), para solo mencionar las grandes figuras del siglo XIX. Partiendo de este análisis, el presente artículo trata de sacar las consecuencias de este hecho desarrollando una nueva visión de la cultura y de las letras cubanas insistiendo, además, en su carácter especificamente «friccional»
