Synopsis

La Revolucion cubana cambio la vida de todos los que han tenido el destino de vivirla. Ha inspirado politicos, intelectuales y escritores. Ha creado mitos y sufrimientos, exilios y rencores. Autor de cuentos, novelas y ensayos imprescindibles como La isla que se repite, Benitez Rojo es un intelectual atipico en el panorama del exilio cubano por ofrecer una vision original de los conflictos presentes, pasados y futuros de un area del mundo fascinante y compleja. Basandose en sus cartas personales y las de otros escritores e intelectuales cubanos conservadas en el archivo de la Universidad de Princeton, y en una serie de entrevistas con el mismo escritor antes de su muerte, con sus amigos y colegas, esta biografia literaria habla del viaje intelectual de Benitez Rojo desde sus exordios en el mundo intelectual cubano en 1967 hasta su muerte en Amherst, Massachusetts, en 2005. The Cuban revolution changed the lives of all who lived through it. It inspired politicians, intellectuals and writers. It created myths and miseries, exiles and rancor. The author of short stories, novels and such essential essays as The Repeating Island , Benitez Rojo is an atypical intellectual in the panorama of Cuban exile because he offers an original perspective of the past, present and future conflicts of this troubled and complex area. Based on his personal papers and on the papers of other Cuban writers and intellectuals held in the University of Princeton Special Collection archives, and on a series of interviews with Benitez Rojo himself, his friends and colleagues, this literary biography tells Benitez Rojo's journey from his emergence in the Cuban intellectual world in 1967 to his death in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 2005. Maria Rita Corticelli is an independent researcher.
