This book analyzes the initial engagement with Hollywood by key Latin American writers and intellectuals .

This book analyzes the initial engagement with Hollywood by key Latin American writers and intellectuals during the first few decades of the 20th century. Hollywood’s arrival on the scene placed such writers in a bind, as many felt compelled to emulate the "artistry" of a medium dominated by a nation posing a symbolic affront to Latin American cultural and linguistic autonomy as well as the region’s geopolitical sovereignty. The film industry thus occupied a crucial site of conflict and reconciliation between aesthetics and politics.

The diary is a genre that is often thought of as virtually formless, a "capacious hold-all" for the writer’s thoughts, and as offering unmediated access to the diarist’s true self. Focusing on the diaries of Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf, Antonia White, Joe Orton, John Cheever, and Sylvia Plath, this book looks at how six very different professional writers have approached the diary form with its particular demands and literary potential. As a sequence of separate entries the diary is made up of both gaps and continuities, and the different ways diarists negotiate these aspects of the diary form has radical effects on how their diaries represent both the world and the biographical self. The different published editions of the diaries by Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath show how editorial decisions can construct sometimes startlingly different biographical portraits. Yet all diaries are constructed, and all diary constructions depend on how the writer works with the diary form.

As researchers from the paper age can attest, discoveries are not always made by search engines. Finding a reference to one book, walking over to the library, and going into the stacks often opens up new worlds just by looking at the books on the same shelf. That's how I came across Anna Jackson's brilliant study of "Diary Poetics." (When, by the way, will amazon let us italicize titles of books?) The discussions and analyses of writers' diaries including those of Woolf, Mansfield, and Plath are well thought out and helpful for anyone who wants to understand the private writings with greater depth. There is, as well, an important section on style choices for private writing. This is a book worth reading for anyone who wants to understand the diary to someone who is working on the subject for a dissertation.
