Writing Off the Hyphen: New Perspectives on the Literature of the Puerto Rican Diaspora written by Jose L. Torres-Padilla

 

Writing Off the Hyphen: New Perspectives on the Literature of the Puerto Rican Diaspora written by Jose L. Torres-Padilla

Overview:

The sixteen essays in Writing Off the Hyphen approach the literature of the Puerto Rican diaspora from current theoretical positions, with provocative and insightful results. The authors analyze how the diasporic lived experience of Puerto Ricans is played out in the context of class, race, gender, and sexuality and how other themes emerging from postcolonialism and postmodernism come into play. Their critical work also demonstrates an understanding of how the process of migration and the relations between Puerto Rico and the United States complicate notions of cultural and national identity as writers confront their bilingual, bicultural, and transnational realities.

The collection has considerable breadth and depth. It covers earlier, undertheorized writers, prominent writers, and often-neglected writers. The essays cover all the genres and demonstrate that current theoretical ideas and approaches, such as transnationalism, create exciting opportunities and possibilities for the study of Puerto Rican diasporic literature.
