This chapter covers the history of literary culture over the next twenty-eight years, 1961–89, which showed more of a common internal pattern than that whole period shared with the opening years. Each phase's character marked it out from the preceding and following phases: 1961–67 saw the cultural authorities' main focus on the reader, rather than the writer; in 1967–76 the focus shifted to literature's social context, namely both an internal Cuban context and an external context, in the Third World; and in 1977–89, the focus shifted to the book itself, and to publishing, while correcting the neglect of the writer. However, nothing changed the overall emerging emphasis of the strategy for a literary culture, largely determined from 1961 and following the same principles until the crisis of 1989–94, following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
