Overview

A dazzling and definitive compendium of the Latino literary tradition.

This groundbreaking Anthology includes the work of 201 Latino writers from Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban-American, 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 reggaetón. In six chronological sections—Colonization, Annexation, Acculturation, Upheaval, Into the Mainstream, and Popular Traditions—the anthology encompasses diverse genres, and it features writers such as José Martí, William Carlos Williams, Julia Alvarez, Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina García, Piri Thomas, Esmeralda Santiago, and Junot Díaz. Thirteen years in the making, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature sheds new light on "nuestra América" through a gathering of writing unprecedented in scope and vitality.

Editorial Reviews

Cornel West
“This book is an instant classic—a groundbreaking work in the making for thirteen years! There is no America without Latino doings and sufferings. And there is no American literature without Latino voices and visions!”
Henry Louis Gates Jr.
The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature will be for Latinos what The Norton Anthology of African American Literature has been for African Americans: a celebration of a culture that has been yearning to sing itself into the canon.”
Jesse Hoffnung-Garskof
“Nowhere else can scholars, teachers, and students find such a broad-ranging and accessible collection. . . . A crucial and eminently useful resource for any reader hoping to understand the stunning diversity of Latina/o experience and expression in the United States.”
Felipe Fernandez-Armesto
“Imaginatively conceived, painstakingly executed, stunningly broad, profoundly stirring, endlessly engaging, this book can change the way the world thinks about America, and the way Americans think about themselves.”
