Divergent Dictions: Contemporary Dominican Literature

by Néstor Rodríguez



This translation of the well-received "Escrituras de Desencuentro en la República Dominicana" examines the writings of Dominican and Dominican-American authors such as Junot Díaz, Julia Álvarez, Josafina Báez, Manuel Rueda, Rita Hernández, Aurora Arias, and Silvio Torres-Saillant.

The author posits that this work is a radical aesthetic enterprise challenging the Dominican cultural establishment. These writers represent Dominicanness as a diverse and heterogeneous cultural identity, complicating the purported homogeneity of the Dominican Republic.
