Specialists in North America, Latin America, and Britain have contributed to this uniquely reliable reference work, creating a set of books which contains innovative approaches that will expand and animate the field for years to come.
Volume 1 begins with pre-Columbian traditions and the first contact with European culture, and continues through to the end of the nineteenth century. New World historiography, epic poetry, theater, the novel, and the essay form are among the areas covered in this comprehensive and authoritative treatment.
Volume 2 provides coverage of all genres from the end of the nineteenth century up to Garc?a M?rquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and beyond to 1990, thus including discussion of Spanish American literature's best-known works. The novel, poetry, autobiographical narrative, the short story, Afro-Hispanic American literature, theater, and Chicano literature are among the areas treated in this wide-ranging volume.
Volume 3 covers the history of Brazilian literature, from the earliest writing through to the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Portuguese-language traditions; it also contains an extensive bibliographical section in which annotated reading lists relating to the chapters in all three volumes of the History are presented. These bibliographies are a unique feature, further enhancing the work's immense value as a reference tool.
