  • Information


The Cambridge Companion to Latina/o American Literature provides a thorough yet accessible overview of a literary phenomenon that has been rapidly globalizing over the past two decades.

It takes an innovative approach that underscores the importance of understanding Latina/o literature not merely as an ethnic phenomenon in the United States, but more broadly as a crucial element of a trans-American literary imagination.

Leading scholars in the field present critical analyses of key texts, authors, themes, and contexts, from the early nineteenth century to the present.

They engage with the dynamics of migration, linguistic and cultural translation, and the uneven distribution of resources across the Americas that characterize Latina/o literature.

This Companion will be an invaluable resource, introducing undergraduate and graduate students to the complexities of the field.
