Abstract:

"Significant book for history of Latin American literature in English-language translation. Focusing on Waldo Frank's contributions, Rostagno chronicles changing North American attitudes toward Latin American literature. Other chapters deal with Blanche and Alfred Knopf, the serial El Corno Emplumado, the impact(s) of the Cuban Revolution, and the Center for Inter-American Relations. The take of any 'promotion,' however, is far more complicated than Rostagno indicates"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
