The Cambridge History of Latin American Literature is by far the most comprehensive work of its kind ever written. Its three volumes cover the whole sweep of Latin American literature (including Brazilian) from pre-Colombian times to the present, and contain chapters on Latin American writing in the USA.

    One of my prized possessions. Reading these essays, I get a sense of exhileration about the field of Latin American literature and a concomitant sense of devasataion that I will never achieve the mastery evidenced by the contributing scholars. There is great information in this work, and–if you truly love the field–exciting overviews as well. The three volumes are truly the springboard for additional study that they were intended to be, and they really replace Enrique Anderson Imbert, Bellini, and others as the first “go to” handbook. For Latin Americanists, this collection is a bible, pure and simple.
