Literature and Resistance in Guatemala · Textual Modes and Cultural Politics from El Señor Presidente to Rigoberta Menchú · By Marc Zimmerman

What circumstances lead writers in a poor, multi-ethnic and largely illiterate country to produce a literature that both expresses and affects opposition to the regime? Who are these writers? This study examines these and other questions about the literature of resistance in Guatemala, from the days of Estrada Cabrera up to the events of May and June of 1993.
