This is a classic anthology of literature from writers throughout Latin America. I used this book several years back while studying at college and wanted to update my Spanish literature collection as I begin my studies at NYU's Graduate School, majoring in Spanish. Before I begin grad school, I am refreshing my Spanish and my study of literature.

This is the perfect self-study book and the price truly reflects the level of quality that you receive from the book. It is hard to find a great collection of classic and modern literature, complete with questions and reflection for the reader.

Please be aware that this book is ideal for those who have studied successfully Spanish and are at a near native to native level of understanding. There are no translations, all of the literature is in Spanish, along with the questions and reflections at the end of each literary piece.

One of the best aspects of this literary anthology is that it is complete with author introductions and photos of almost all of the authors whose works appear in the texts. Likewise, nearly all of the Latin American countries are represented, including my homeland, Puerto Rico. You will find literary pieces from Cuba, Dominican Republic, Chile, Uruguay, Mexico, Peru and nearly every other country- it is an excellent representation of work.

I highly recommend it if you are a serious learner. Thank you.

This is not a "for fun" read. It is very much an educational text for studying the literature of Latin America from a historical perspective. From pre-colonial indigenous traditions through to fairly modern texts (early 2000s) this book covers excerpts from some of Latin America's most prominent and influential writers and gives historical context to their works.

I am currently using this book for my Spanish literature class. This book is well written and gives a great introduction to the different authors found within the textbook. The insight given for the different authors also allows you to get a feeling of the different events and feelings that surrounded the author when he wrote a certain piece. Overall great book.
