This chapter discusses the construction of the subject in Caribbean testimonial narratives of the early years of the Cuban Revolution. It examines the way in which their internal contradictions and dissonances operate to coincide with and resist conventional notions of nation building. It also explores how this type of documentary narrative in the Hispanic Caribbean constitutes a vehicle of self-identification and definition of people in an on-going historical process.

Keywords:   Caribbean, testimonial narratives, Cuban Revolution, nation building, documentary narrative, Hispanic Caribbean, self-identification, historical process, definition of people
