VOCES DE HISPANOAMÉRICA, the market-leading anthology, features the most distinguished authors of Spanish-American literature from the Pre-Colonial period to the present. The introductory essays and literary selections, combined with the many historical and literary references, make this text an invaluable resource for both students and instructors.
