Description

Writers in Latin America still view the discovery and conquest of their continent five hundred years ago as a personal affair. Some see it as genocide, the destruction of peoples and worlds whose voice was lost forever. Others see in it the creation of a new culture with its own unique mixture of passion, fantasy and violent beliefs. Others again cling to the possibility that Latin America might be the utopia that the first European discoverers dreamed it was. In this richly varied collection, a dozen contemporary authors from Latin America consider the heritage of the conquest. Their stories range from attempts to recapture the lost world of the continent's original inhabitants to imaginative explorations of Latin America today and its identity in the world. With an afterword by Juan Goytisolo
