Language: English . Brand New Book. In Novels of Testimony and Resistance, Linda Craft defines and describes the testimonial novel, traces its recent history in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, and examines the historical and political context that has given rise to this hybrid literary form. Focusing on some of the most compelling recent examples of this literature of resistance, she considers the ways in which mediated eyewitness testimonies can be contaminated by even a sympathetic collaborator and explores the tensions between writing history and writing an artistic elaboration of an event. With political turmoil subsiding in Central America, Craft s study is particularly timely, given its attempt to take stock of recent developments in this literature and to argue for its inclusion in an enlarged, multicultural literary canon.

Synopsis :

In Novels of Testimony and Resistance, Linda Craft defines and describes the testimonial novel, traces its recent history in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, and examines the historical and political context that has given rise to this hybrid literary form. Focusing on some of the most compelling recent examples of this literature of resistance, she considers the ways in which mediated "eyewitness testimonies" can be contaminated by even a sympathetic collaborator and explores the tensions between writing history and writing an artistic elaboration of an event. With political turmoil subsiding in Central America, Craft's study is particularly timely, given its attempt to take stock of recent developments in this literature and to argue for its inclusion in an enlarged, multicultural literary canon.
