This survey concentrates on the modern novel of Spanish-speaking America. Dr Brotherston starts with a long and suggestive introduction on the general topic 'settings and people', showing the growth of a sense of Latin American identity in the fiction produced in the continent as a whole. There follow detailed studies of individual modern novels, taken as representative of their time, their author, their country and the continent. A conclusion surveys and sums up these themes. The analytical studies of important and representative novels, related to each other in theme and preoccupation, the substantial quotations (in English), the notes and the useful bibliography, make this a book which gives students and other readers a well-considered introduction to the Spanish American fiction of this century.
