Myth and Archive presents a new theory of the origin and evolution of Latin American literature and the emergence of the modern novel.
In this influential, award-winning exploration of Latin American writing from colonial times to the present, Roberto González Echevarría dispenses with traditional literary history to reveal the indebted relationship of the novel to legal, scientific, and anthropological discourses.
This acclaimed book-originally published in 1990-will be of continuing interest to historians, anthropologists, literary theorists, and students of Latin American culture.
