Merengue, Lujuria Y Violencia: El Espectáculo De La Barbarie En El Imaginario De La Nación Dominicana, Medar Serrata

Medar Serrata

This essay has two purposes. The first is to analyze the representation of popular music in the Dominican Republic since the mid-nineteenth century to the 1930s. The second is to explore the incorporation and subversion of the notion of merengue as a symbol of "barbarism" in the works of the Dominican writer Ramón Marrero Aristy.
