University of Minnesota, Minneapolis: 1989. 0816617430 / 9780816617432 First Edition. s Softcover. Good condition. There are some notes written in pencil. 
"Caliban" - the first and longest of the five essays in this book - has become a kind of manifesto for Latin American and Caribbean writeers; its central figure, the rude savage of Shakespeare's Tempest, becomes in Retamar's hands a powerful metaphor of their cultural situation - both in its marginality and its revolutionary potential. Retamar finds the literary and historic originsof Caliban in Columbus's Navigation Log Books, where the Carib Indian becomes a cannibal, a bestial human human being situated on the margins of civilization. Includes an Index.
