Anmeldelser

Paredes primarily traces the evolution and styles of popular Mexican poetry and song around the southern Rio Grande border until about mid-20th century, best understood and appreciated by knowing some of the historical and political context, most particularly the conflicts between the two cultures and among the political forces there, and going back as well even to Spanish-Mexican and French-Mexican conflicts, as well as some within Mexico associated with revolutions therein. Paredes sets out some of this historical background.

This is well researched and written by a scholar, yet easy to read.
