New York has had a Caribbean dimension from its very earliest years, a dimension boosted in the twentieth century by massive immigration and by movement back and forth, all of which has had literary consequences.  My particular interests in the project outlined in this paper are threefold: to look more closely at the early part of the twentieth century, which has been less studied; to pay particular attention to the interaction between writers from different islands; and to study the engagement of Hispanic writers with US writers through the short-lived but influential Pan-American literary movement.
