For one-semester introduction courses on selected masterpieces of Latin American Literature, or two-semester survey courses on the literatures and cultures of Latin America, or as a reader in more advanced genre courses. Unique in coverage, this comprehensive one-volume anthology of Latin American literatures - from pre-Colombian times to the present - covers not only the authors accepted within the literary canon - but innovative contemporary voices that are now breaking the ethnocentric mold. It features detailed historical introductions to each period and writer, selections drawn from literary, historical, and socio-political contexts, and pedagogical aids that make the language accessible and that encourage critical thinking.
