Overview

El cuento hispánico: A Graded Literary Anthology , Eighth Edition, is designed

for intermediate college Spanish reading courses. This book provides students

with a collection of fi rst-rate Spanish-language short stories with which to

expand their reading skills and their knowledge of Hispanic culture as por-

trayed in these works. Although literary excellence was the primary crite-

rion in selecting stories, an effort was also made to choose tales that can be

read in one sitting.
