Experience the rich diversity of Hispano-American literature!

Spanning from before the Europeans arrived in Spanish America to the present, this anthology will help you develop a deep and extensive appreciation of more than 600 years of Hispano-American literature.

The dozens of selections in Pinceladas Literarias Hispanoamericanas represent both traditionally significant writers, as well as the writings of indigenous, female and Afro-Hispanic authors that are not usually included in the official cannon. The result is a collection that gives you a unique and diverse perspective of the Latin American literary world, addresses the repercussions of Spanish colonialization, and presents a rich history of the different periods.


  • Presents selections by writers from 20 countries, including Puerto Rico, from the pre-Columbian era to the 20th century.

  • Includes indigenous writers, and provides more exposure to women writers, independent thinkers who have not been admitted in the Index, Afro-Hispanic writers, and the novísimos who are right now battling the path to fame.

  • Biographies combined with literary commentary enable you to connect each writer’s personal history with his or her literary production, which in many cases is inseparable.

  • Exposes you to the Hispanic-American world of ideas, transformation, and struggle.

  • Provides a solid foundation for literary studies including introductory explanations of each literary period, a guide to literary analysis, an appendix for further literary analysis, and ample footnotes to clarify regional sayings.
