The novels and plays of Eduardo Manet
by Phyllis Zatlin

Playwright and novelist, theater and film director, Eduardo Manet (b. 1930) has been a major participant in the cultural worlds of both Cuba and France. His works have been internationally acclaimed : he has been nominated for the Prix Goncourt ans was awarded a special Goncourt youth prize, and his novels and plays have been translated into twenty one languages. Manet’s work, however, has often been overlooked by both French and Spanish-American critics because of his unique position as a Latin American writing in French. Zatlin sets out to correctthis oversight by offering a detailed analysis of Manet’s many genres and themes. She begins with his work in Cuba, from his youthful poetry and plays to the films he directed in Revolutionnary Cuba. She then examines his seven full-lengh novels, all written in Franch but typically refective of Cuban experience. Finally, Zatlin concludes her study by considering Manet’s early plays of entrapment and enclosure and his later theater, defined by its metatheatrical and multicultural themes.
