Experience the rich diversity of Hispano-American literature!
Spanning from before the Europeans arrived in Spanish America to the present, this anthology will help you develop a deep and extensive appreciation of more than 600 years of Hispano-American literature.
The dozens of selections in "Pinceladas Literarias Hispanoamericanas" represent both traditionally significant writers, as well as the writings of indigenous, female and Afro-Hispanic authors that are not usually included in the official cannon. The result is a collection that gives you a unique and diverse perspective of the Latin American literary world, addresses the repercussions of Spanish colonialization, and presents a rich history of the different periods.
Highlights: Presents selections by writers from 20 countries, including Puerto Rico, from the pre-Columbian era to the 20th century. Includes indigenous writers, and provides more exposure to women writers, independent thinkers who have not been admitted in the "Index," Afro-Hispanic writers, and the "noví simos" who are right now battling the path to fame. Biographies combined with literary commentary enable you to connect each writer’ s personal history with his or her literary production, which in many cases is inseparable. Exposes you to the Hispanic-American world of ideas, transformation, and struggle. Provides a solid foundation for literary studies including introductory explanations of each literary period, a guide to literary analysis, an appendix for further literary analysis, and ample footnotes to clarify regional sayings.
