[Machine Translation:] One of the most important narrative genres in Cuban literature has been the historical novel. Since the early Romantics, and Villaverde as Avellaneda, to Carpentier, Arenas, Benítez Rojo or Padura, Cubans have always tried to recount his fascinating and controversial history through fiction, in a different way, but no less true historians themselves.
This book combines a tour throughout the evolution of the historical novel in Cuba with a more detailed analysis of the narrative Julio Travieso Serrano (Havana, 1940), whose work stands as one of the most representative of the last decades , ranging from the golden age of the sugar estate in the early nineteenth, through the process of revolutionary euphoria in the fifties and sixties of last century, to the deep disappointment of the nineties and the new millennium.
