Format: Paperback
I had to use this book for an introductory course to the literature of Spain and Latin America. An important thing to notice is that it is also an introduction to the Spanish language as a whole, in the sense that certain words in the text are translated directly into English, which facilitates the reading for English speakers but become a burden really for Spanish speakers.

That is why I only give it 3 stars, because there are better introductory textbooks out there if you want a more in-depth understanding of "Spanish-American" literature. That being said, I would definitely recommend it to beginning students who have a hard time understanding the more complex texts written in Spanish. It contains really interesting "symbolic" texts and selections from the best authors in the Spanish language and provides good tools of comprehension and interpretation.

The book is OK. The 5 stars are for getting a new book at the same price that the university book store was selling an eaten up used copy.

it's a good book to study, but it is pretty tattered. It looks as if it has been used A LOT.

All the pages are present and it isn't waterlogged or anything, but I wish the book had been in better condition. There is a lot of writing and highlighting in it, and there are some folded / crinkled pages as well as the cover. It just looks worn. But it serves its purpose so I do not have too much to complain about.
