Writings

Laguerre was one of the most prolific novelists of Puerto Rico. Following in the steps of Manuel Zeno Gandía, Laguerre's most influential work focused on the problems of the colonized society. His novel La Llamarada offers a compressive view of rural Puerto Rico during the Great Depression. Most of his novels are essential readings in Puerto Rican literature courses.
