9780393080070: The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature

A dazzling and definitive compendium of the Latino literary tradition.

This groundbreaking Norton Anthology includes the work of 201 Latino writers from Chicano, Cuban-, Puerto Rican-, and Dominican-American traditions, as well as writing from other Spanish-speaking countries. Under the general editorship of award-winning cultural critic Ilan Stavans, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature traces four centuries of writing, from letters to the Spanish crown by sixteenth-century conquistadors to the cutting-edge expressions of twenty-first-century cartoonistas and artists of reggaeton. In six chronological sections―Colonization, Annexation, Acculturation, Upheaval, Into the Mainstream, and Popular Traditions―it encompasses all genres, featuring such writers as José Martí, William Carlos Williams, Julia Alvarez, Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina García, Piri Thomas, Esmeralda Santiago, and Junot Díaz. Twelve years in the making, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature sheds new light on "nuestra America" through a gathering of writing unprecedented in scope and vitality.

About the Author:

Ilan Stavans is Lewis-Sebring Professor in Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College. He is the author of many books, including Spanglish: The Making of a New American Language and A Most Imperfect Union. He is also general editor of The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* As we go through yet another time of questioning what it means to be American, the Latino community is thriving. This beautifully clarifying keystone anthology, therefore, couldn’t be more timely in its illumination of the full Latino spectrum in exceptional literature rooted in Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban American, and Dominican American cultures, as well in other Spanish-speaking countries. Prolific and versatile Stavans and his fellow editors have gathered a glorious chorus of 201 voices spanning five centuries and diverse traditions. Stavans lays the groundwork: “First, at its core, Latino literature is about the tension between double attachments to place, to language, and to identity.” Stavans and company subsequently track the interaction between Hispanic and Anglo perspectives as they succinctly yet vividly cover the historical and political events that have shaped and fueled Latino writing both reportorial and imaginative. With a great array of writers celebrated and too little known, and invaluable supporting materials, this grand and affecting treasury of culturally rich and aesthetically dynamic poems, fiction, drama, letters, diaries, and essays illuminates every aspect of Latino life. While the great poet José Martí writes of “weapons of the mind, which vanquish all others,” journalist Rubén Martínez begins his chronicle of the Mexican-U.S. border with a sentence laced with profound implications: “I am close to the line.” --Donna Seaman
