About this Item

Title
Literary Afterlives of the Cuban and Angolan Revolutions
Summary
Kluge Fellow Lanie Millar discussed how recent Cuban and Angolan literature reexamines histories of revolution. Cuba and Angola are two nations linked by a history of Iberian colonization and leftist revolutions that triumphed in Cuba in 1959 and Angola in 1975. The recent histories of Cuba and Angola come into closer contact via the fifteen-year military collaboration between the two nations during Angola's civil war (1975-2002). As the Cold War came to an end, however, Cuban and Angolan literature turned away from ideas of revolutionary utopia to disappointment with wartime violence, politically-motivated censorship and unresolved social realities.
