Cuba and the Fall

Cuba and the Fall: Christian Text and Queer Narrative in the Fiction of José Lezama Lima and Reinaldo Arenas, by Eduardo González, a study of elements of the Christian belief in “the fall” and possible redemption in the work of two canonical writers whose books express a Cuban homoerotic sensibility. González describes Cuba and the Fall as “an old-fashioned study of literary character,” ultimately concerned with “instances of human subjection to the force of character under pressure by the social constraints and forms of hate that shape it.”
