BRUNO, Pía. Configurations of Homeland and the Cuban Literature in the nineteenth Century. Anclajes [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.1, pp. 41-59. ISSN 1851-4669.

The shaping of Cuban motherland imaginary had its foundational stage during the third decade of the ninetenth century. It was a group of Cuban literates, coming from different fields of study -but joined in the ideals of liberal reformism- who consciously developed an initial symbolic mould on which a certain conception of the motherland will be founded. In literary texts and essays, these intellectuals capture their concerns and doubts, while sketching and delimiting early blueprints of a nation. This paper proposes to analyze a letter written by Cuban poet José Jacinto Milanés (1814-1863) adressed to Domingo del Monte (1804-1853), since it allows us to capture the discussions held by these intellectuals around the building of an identity and a patriotic literature, as well as the process of writing itself, in relation to the shaping of human relationships typical of those literate circles at that period of time.
