    Thanks. I am curious about the absence of Afro-Cuban literature in this list.

    • the woyingi blogger said, on October 30, 2011 at 10:38 pm

      I’ve included Afro-Cuban literature in my section on Afro-Latino Literature.

  2. Marisela said, on October 31, 2011 at 4:55 am

    Interesting, you seem to be distinguishing Latino from Caribbean, but really, people in Cuba identify more with the Caribbean than with other parts of the Latin World. I love your list and I find it very complete and useful. I would like to invite you to rethink the exclusion of the Spanish Caribbean. Or maybe change the title of the list to English/French Caribbean literature. Just a thought.
