The overarching theme of the collection is the revision of the accepted view of Latin American national identities as represented in twentieth-century Latin American literature and culture. The book examines the complexity of national identities forged among political crises, economic upheaval and intercultural influences.The essays included here focus upon internal contradictions of national identity and the factors contributing to this discord.

Among these are the nature of the Latin American intellectual, Latin American modernity and exile, and the psychological underpinning of the re-creation of history. Some of the chapters challenge the existing theoretical framework for Latin American literary analysis by employing non-literary theories to analyse hitherto overlooked textual anomalies.The book is a Festschrift for Professor Peter R.

Beardsell, reflecting the importance of his contribution to Latin American literary and cultural studies.
