MESA, Sergio Chaple. Cuban literature at the time of the Revolution. Estud. av. [online]. 2011, vol.25, n.72, pp.131-144. ISSN 0103-4014.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-40142011000200012.

This paper aims to offer readers an overview of the literary process in the new age of national literary history that began in 1959 with the triumph of the Cuban revolution. To this end, and within each major literary genre and mode, we present a chronology of the most prominent works and authors (both those already active and those who emerged over the last decades) and the political, social and economic context in which they produced and published their works. We also mention some key aspects of Cuba's cultural policy, e.g., Fidel Castro's Words to Intellectuals, the so-called "Gray quinquennium" and the current view on the literature of the "diaspora." Finally, we attempt to formulate a concise characterization of some of the essential traits of the literary works produced at the time.

Palavras-chave : Continuity and disruption; Cultural policy; "Gray quinquennium"; Diaspora; Generations; Cultural identity; Epic character.
