The enigma of Cuba's resistance to the collapse of socialism around
the world is equaled by the fact-surprising to some outsiders-that
the Cuban cultural movement remains healthy, even with the problems
brought about by the breakup of the Soviet Union. Represented in
this issue of South Atlantic Quarterly by artwork, essays, short
stories, and interviews, Cuban art and literature continues to
produce dramatic testimony to a struggle for survival and a shared
belief in the Cuban revolutionary project's right to exist and
develop on its own terms. Fostered by both caution and audacity, in
a climate of both trust and tension, and in the face of sustained
North American hostility through nearly four decades, Cuban artists
and writers have succeeded in building bridges between domestic and
foreign cultural institutions, partly offsetting the profound
material deprivations under which they have labored. The work
collected in this volume introduces a group of writers, artists,
and filmmakers who provide a window on Cuban life, illuminating
this enigmatic island and bridging the troubled waters it shares
with its continental neighbor to the north.Contributors. Arturo
