Description
In this dynamic collection of essays, a range of today's leading literary scholars trace gay and lesbian themes in Latin American, Hispanic, and U.S. Latino literary and cultural texts. Reading and Writing the Ambiente is consciously ambitious and far-ranging, historically as well as geographically. It includes discussions of texts from as early as the seventeenth century to writings of the late twentieth century.

Reading and Writing the Ambiente also underscores the ways in which lesbian and gay self-representation in Hispanic texts differs from representations in Anglo-American texts. The contributors demonstrate that -- unlike the emphasis on the individual in Anglo-American sexual identity -- Latino, Spanish, and Latin American sexual identity is produced in the surrounding culture and community, in the ambiente.
