Product Description

From the Back Cover

This text, a derivative of LITERATURES OF ASIA, AFRICA, AND LATIN AMERICA, gathers together a broad selection of representative, authoritative writing—spanning antiquity to the present. It combines extensive introductions, headnotes, and bibliographies with excellent literary translations of the best contemporary and classic writers.

This is an anthology that students will want to take home with them and to read long after the course is completed.

By Alfredo R. Villanueva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Penguin paperback of nothing but excerpts from here and there, indequate explanations and phone book sensibility is a model example of the textbook publishing industry's permanent ripoff scam. As a (former) teacher, I am always aware of the outrageous prices charged by college bookstores for books that can be found for a fraction of their market price. Moreover, 5 pages out of a 300 page novel do not even begin to explore its complexity. The book should have included far less selections and better supplementary materials for both teachers and students. As to content, one finds the usual canon; the Spanish Caribbean is almost non-existent, except for Cuba, Giannina Braschi is included though she is a bilingual Nuyorican, and Julia de Burgos' most famous poem is passed over in favor of a lesser one. Why can't colleges state clearly they will not order poverpriced books?
