The Tropics Bite Back: Culinary Coups in Caribbean Literature
The ubiquitous presence of food and hunger in Caribbean writing-from folktales, fiction, and poetry to political and historical treatises-signals the traumas that have marked the Caribbean from the Middle Passage to the present day. The Tropics Bite Back traces the evolution of the Caribbean response to the colonial gaze (or rather the colonial mouth) from the late nineteenth century to the twenty-first. Unlike previous scholars, Valerie Loichot does not read food simply as a cultural trope. Instead, she is interested in literary cannibalism, which she interprets in parallel with theories of relation and creolization. For Loichot, the culinary is an abstract mode of resistance and cultural production. The Francophone and Anglophone authors whose works she interrogates-including Patrick Chamoiseau, Suzanne Cesaire, Aime Cesaire, Maryse Conde, Edwidge Danticat, Edouard Glissant, Lafcadio Hearn, and Dany Laferriere- bite back at the controlling images of the cannibal, the starved and starving, the cunning cook, and the sexualized octoroon with the ultimate goal of constructing humanity through structural, literal, or allegorical acts of ingesting, cooking, and eating. The Tropics Bite Back employs cross-disciplinary methods to rethink notions of race and literary influence by providing a fresh perspective on forms of consumption both metaphorical and material.

Th Essential Neruda: Selected Poems
Pablo Neruda (1904-73) was the greatest Latin American poet of the 20th century. A prolific, inspirational poet, he wrote many different kinds of poems covering a wide range of themes, notably love, death, grief and despair. His poetry celebrates the dramatic Chilean landscape and rages against the exploitation of his people, for whom he became a national hero. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1971 for 'a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams'. This book presents fifty of his most essential poems in dynamic new translations, the result of an unprecedented collaboration between a team of poets, translators and leading Neruda scholars who came together to revisit or completely retranslate the poems. Also including some previously untranslated works, this bilingual edition sets the standard for a general, high-quality introduction to Neruda's complete oeuvre. The Essential Neruda includes translations by Mark Eisner, John Felstiner, Forrest Gander, Robert Hass, Jack Hirschman, Stephen Kessler, Stephen Mitchell and Alastair Reid, with an introduction by Mark Eisner and a foreword by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

Canto General
El Canto General es un poema ordenado en 15 cantos, 231 poemas y mas de quince mil versos.compuesto durante 13 anos, desde Espana hasta su exilio en Mexico, donde aparece por primera vez. Obra tremendamente ambiciosa, pretende ser una cronica o enciclopedia de toda Hispanoamerica. Muchos criticos lo han calificado como un texto de poesia epica, ya que su canto esta dirigido a la naturaleza e historia entera del continente americano. Se trata de una obra "densa y monumental, la de mayor amplitud tematica y sintesis americanista que se haya realizado en el continente." Constituye un poema epico y moral, que se basa en la biografia de un continente, desde los dias precolombinos, pasando por la llegada de los conquistadores hasta la actualidad de su redaccion; es tambien la biografia del propio Neruda y un canto a sus compatriotas. Es una obra ambiciosa que pretende ser una enciclopedia de Hispanoamerica. Su tema basico es el continente americano (Geografia, historia, gente). Los versos en esta obra no tienen rima, son de distintas extensiones y los mas utilizados son los eneasilabos y endecasilabos. Uno de los aspectos mas insolitos, si lo observamos desde el punto de vista cultural, es la incorporacion de la Historia como tema literario y de su peculiar manejo en Canto General, y desde su propia interpretacion crear una imagen de la Historia de America. Desde el punto de vista cultural, son muy contadas las obras que han hecho de la Historia un objeto poetico. Por lo general, estas obras surgen bajo ciertas condiciones culturales que se suman a la voluntad del poeta, para convertir la Historia en un tema y en una creacion poetica. Neruda, genio y figura, con esta obra inmortaliza su trabajo literario y convierte a este poemario en lectura obligada para las presentes y futuras generaciones de Hispanoamerica."
