The stark reality of all life, from the biology of the food chain incorporating all living beings to the social stratification and hierarchies of human cultures, revolves around violence – physical or psychological. That unavoidable, black-and-white, worldview of survival of the fittest with little if any gray to mitigate it is colored only by the red lifeblood of the victims of the bigger, the stronger, the smarter, the wilier, who literally and/or figuratively "eat" their victims – overcoming, overwhelming, controlling, oppressing them. The premise behind Insult to Injury: Violence in Spanish, Hispanic American and Latino Art and Literature focuses on the representation of the visual and literary artistic products of a group of seemingly alike yet divergent societies, with linguistic and cultural ties that reflect those societies' means of control.
