Summary
Acosta reevaluates Latin American theories and narratives of cultural resistance by advancing the concept of 'illiteracy' as a new critical approach to understanding scenes or moments of social antagonism. 'Illiteracy', he claims, can offer us a way of talking about what cannot be subsumed within prevailing modes of reading, such as the opposition between writing and orality, that have frequently been deployed to distinguish between modern and archaic peoples and societies. The book is organized as a series of literary and cultural analyses of internationally recognized postcolonial narratives
