The Cambridge History of Latin American Literature is by far the most comprehensive work of its kind ever written. Its three volumes cover the whole sweep of Latin American literature (including Brazilian) from pre-Colombian times to the present, and contain chapters on Latin American writing in the USA. Volume 2 provides coverage of all genres from the end of the nineteenth century up to Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and beyond to 1990, thus including discussion of Spanish American literature's best-known works. The novel, poetry, autobiographical narrative, the short story, Afro-Hispanic American literature, theatre, and Chicano literature are among the areas treated in this wide-ranging volume.

"...this exceptional three-volume history of Latin American Literature...surpasses its goal...Congatulations to contributors, editors, and publishers on what will become a classic in the field." F. Colecchia, Choice "This volume of the Cambridge History of Latin American Literature offers well-informed and thorough coverage of the twentieth century...The editors of this volume have organized a well-conceived and authoritative volume that any student or scholar of Latin American Literature will find extremely valuable. The depth and breadth of this book are remarkable." Raymond Leslie Williams, Revista de Estudios Hispanicos "Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria and Enrique Pupo-Walker have done a tremendous sesrvice to Latin American letters by editing The Cambridge History of Latin American Literature. This landmark work brings together critical essays addressing the major areas of the discipline by more than forty specialists of Spanish American and Brazilian literature. The Cambridge History of Latin American Literature is an outstanding reference work in both its scope and its depth, one that will define and enrich the work of researchers and teachers in the field for years to come." Edward Waters Hood, World Literature Today
