☯ Full Synopsis : ""In the wake of the Buena Vista Social Club, the world has rediscovered the rich musical tradition of Cuba. A unique combination of popular and elite influences, the music of this island nation has fascinated since the golden age of the son - that new World aural collision of Africa and Europe that made Cuban music the rage in Paris, New York, and Mexico beginning in the 1920s." "Drawing on such primary documents as obscure church circulars, dog-eared musical scores pulled from attics, and the records of the Spanish colonial authorities, Music in Cuba sweeps from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. Carpentier covers European-style elite Cuban music as well as the popular worlds of rural Spanish folk and Afro-Cuban urban music."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Alejo Carpentier was one of the greatest Latin American novelists of the twentieth century, as well as a musicologist, journalist, cultural promoter, and diplomat. His fictional world issues from an encyclopedic knowledge of the history, art, music, and literature of Latin America and Europe. Carpentier’s novels and stories are the enabling discourse of today’s Latin American narrative, and his interpretation of Latin American history has been among the most influential. Carpentier was the first to provide a comprehensive view of Caribbean history that centered on the contribution of Africans, above and beyond the differences created by European cultures and languages. Alejo Carpentier: The Pilgrim at Home, first published in 1977 and updated for this edition, covers the life and works of the great Cuban novelist, offering a new perspective on the relationship between the two. González Echevarría offers detailed readings of the works La música en Cuba, The Kingdom of This World, The Lost Steps, and Explosion in a Cathedral. In a new concluding chapter, he takes up Carpentier’s last years, his relationship with the Cuban revolutionary regime, and his last two novels, El arpa y la sombra and La consagración de la primavera, in which Carpentier reviewed his life and career."Article| Roberto González Echevarría| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Alejo Capentier's Reasons of State was first published in Spanish in 1974, the year of Roa Bastos I, The Supreme and the year before Garcia Marquez's The Autumn of the Patriarch. Together those three books constitute the essential Latin American dictator novels. Carpentier's work contains themes that remain urgently relevant today: political answerability, the relationship between modern Latin America and richer nations, as well as the ever-prevalent notion of boom-and-bust."Article| Alejo Carpentier| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : ""Through a logic of fetishism, Carpentier's characters and narrators are always at the crossroads: they are self and other, Latin American and European, African and American, contrite and unrepentant, masculine and feminine. Literary fetishism, surprisingly, not only marks the space of representation, but also provides a powerful critical lens to examine Carpentier's fiction."--Jacket."Article| James J.

☯ Full Synopsis : "In this orgy of voodoo, race hatred, madness, and erotomania, Alejo Carpentier records the destruction of King Henri Christophe's black regime, which was built on the same corruption and contempt for human life that brought down French rule while embodying its same hollow grandeur of false elegance attained only through slave labor."Article| Alejo Carpentier| Statement ..."
