GOENAGA CONDE, Beatriz  y  RONQUILLO HERNANDEZ, Elsa. The Caribbean literary discourse, identity bholds of Latin American culture. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2. ISSN 1727-8120.

Due to historical and cultural filiations, the Caribbean literature is part and a true example of the Latin American culture. Its literary particularities are based on an identity discourse, which defends a unique and, at the same time, plural culture that distinguishes it from western referents pre-established by socioeconomic power centers. This paper presents the fundamental evolution and development phases of the Caribbean identity expression. Some examples of this literary discourse were carefully selected to further an accurate understanding of its extra literary values. Since this literary discourse is based on an aesthetic ideal of deeply ontological roots, an approach to it means penetrating the essence of the region’s history and cultural patrimony. The study of the topic is important to form Cuban professors socioculturally, particularly those who work in multicultural environments.

Palabras clave : Caribbean literature; Latin American culture; cultural identity; cultural patrimony.
