Famous intellectuals from all over the world coincide in the fact that the history of the continent, its current context and artistic and literary tradition constitute a fertile and dynamic point for the birth and development of huge stories, in the writing world as well as in music and other arts.

Jorge Fornet, director of the Literary Investigation Center from the Casa de las Américas, told AIN that even though literature in the region has a distinctive print, the authors are not adhering to their space or historical and personal experience but they are exploring other routes.

He pointed out that even many of the pieces that compete every year and are among the most read ones, narrate stories or novels that take place in Asia or Slavic regions, whose geographies imply a cultural distance and they definitely transcend and demonstrate who much of common and universal there is from peculiarity.

Literature demands and reflects the worries, obsessions and ways of thinking of every creator; that is the main thing to conquer the great public and it is something which is being seen in the editions of the Casa award, one of the oldest and most important awards in America, assured Fornet.

The researcher gave an example of the diversity and wealth of narration with the title Dichosos los que lloran (Happy those who cry), 2006 Short Story Casa Award by the Cuban Ángel Santiesteban, who reflects brilliantly a prison environment without linking the plot to a determined country, but from the universal conflict he makes reference from.
