Developed for use in upper-level courses and written entirely in Spanish, this anthology introduces students to Latin American literature. Representative works by major literary figures in a variety of genres (fiction, poetry, drama, and essay), exemplify important literary movements from the pre-Columbian times to the present. This text is part of a two-volume anthology that can be used separately or in conjunction with its companion volume, Panoramas literarios: Espana. To foster critical-thinking skills, a Temas intertextuales section at the end of each unit provides topics for intertextual analysis of themes, characterization, voice, and other literary techniques or devices.
