  Vega, Ana Lydia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Ana Lydia Vega was born in Santurce, part of greater San Juan, Puerto Rico, but a sector which is a mixture of middle and working-class families shared by fls, mulattos and whites.
Vega’s literary world is filled with sounds and people, a reflection of her urban upbringing on the streets of Santurce where her playground was the sidewalks and hallways, and where buses and públicos took you everywhere.
Vega is perhaps the only Caribbean writer who can write knowingly on the entire Caribbean region with her immersion on the languages and cultures of the hispano, franco, and anglophone Caribbean.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Contemporary Puerto Rican author Ana Lydia Vega has dedicated most of her literary production to the complexities and cultural debates of writing in "Puerto Rican." Some of her most renowned works are short story collections, such as Encancaranublado (1983), Vírgenes y Mártires (1983; co-authored by Carmen Lugo Filippi), and Falsas Crónicas del Sur (1991).
However, as a continuation of the themes presented in her previous collections, Vega underscores the contradictions that nationalism represents as to what the role of the engaged writer should be in the mission of cultural reaffirmation.
Vega oscillates between the celebration of the popular and the critique of the socio-cultural dilemmas of Puerto Rican society.

Ana Lydia Vega's short story True and False Romances emphasizes the existence of these opposed entities while at the same time refuses to locate the narrative on either side.
But it seems to me that while Ana Lydia Vega may acknowledge these dichotomies between real and imagined, she is also creating a narrative whose very structure and plot is irrelevant in any such debate.
I think that Ana Lydia Vega shows the possibilities of a new endowment of authenticity through her very provocative and political short stories.

 Lydia's Long Road ... - Dec. 14, 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
ONCE touted as Asia's fastest woman, Lydia de Vega, SIM's cover subject for August 16, 1987, brought honor and glory to the Philippines when she became the first woman to win back-to-back gold medals for the 100-meter dash in the 1986 Asian Games in Seoul, Korea, where she beat her archrival, India's P.T. Usha.
But while her on-track exploits were the stuff of headlines and victory, Lydia has seen her share of loss as well.
Through her marriage to engineer Paul Mercado, Lydia had four kids, whom she called her "most precious medals." In February 2001, Lydia's son, John Michael, then 4, died in a tragic road accident.

 Postcolonial Encounters and the Caribbean Diaspora: Encancaranublado by Ana Lydia Vega
In her story "Encancaranublado,"4 Ana Lydia Vega uses this postcolonial encounter to reflect on the cultural identities of the Caribbean.
As an author, the multilinguism of Ana Lydia Vega allows her to situate herself in the different linguistic and cultural perspectives of the four Caribbean characters and the North American official.
The reference to the North American as an ungrateful son, to the absence of the mother tongue, and to the absence of the mother tongue and tenderness, constitute an image of exile and the cold personal relationships facing poor Caribbean immigrants in the United States.

Our reading of texts by authors such as Lope de Vega, Calderón, Tirso de Molina, Quevedo, Góngora, Cervantes, and María de Zayas will be focused around a particular question or series of questions as they were explored in the literature across the Golden Age.
Novellas, lyrical poems, satirical works, and moral treatises will be considered in the framework of the intellectual and spiritual currents of the time, with particular emphasis placed on the transition from a secular humanist vision characteristic of the Renaissance to the doctrinal orthodoxy of the Baroque.
Using the work of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, the first American feminist, as a point of departure, we will examine a variety of literary genre and problems women have faced throughout their literary history.

 Humor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The humor spectrum ranges from light (Esquivel, Mastretta, Allende), to loud and explosive (Vega, Valdés, Shúa), to witty and ironic (Valenzuela, Angel, Mosca), to mordant and farcical (Gorodischer, Borinsky, Ferré), but the comic intention is unmistakeable.
According to Rosario Castellanos, the Mexican writer, poet and journalist who discovered that she could write the most acerbic of social critiques if she couched these in self-deprecating comic irony, humor can be both shield and weapon for women writers.
A number of these writers (notably L. Valenzuela and A. Vega) rely heavily on word play and language games a major source of their humor.
