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 Jose Marti, William Carlos Williams, Julia Alvarez, Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina Garcia, Piri Thomas, Esmeralda Santiago, and Junot Diaz. 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."

Review quote

Ilan Stavans has spread a feast of Latino literature before us. It promises to educate, inspire and change us. Just as the South American literary "boom" of the '60s enriched our literature beyond measure, the recognition of Latino literature promises to open our minds and our hearts to the Spanish language literature being made all around us. This book is a cause for celebration.--Erica Jong
