This groundbreaking Norton Anthology includes the work of 184 Latino writers from Chicano, Cuban-, Puerto Rican-, 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 reggaeton. In six chronological sections-Colonization, Annexation, Acculturation, Upheaval, Into the Mainstream, and Popular Traditions-it encompasses all genres, featuring such writers as Joseacute; Martiacute;, William Carlos Williams, Julia Alvarez, Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina Garciacute;a, Piri Thomas, Esmeralda Santiago, and Junot Diacute;az. Twelve years in the making, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature sheds new light on "nuestra America" through a gathering of writing unprecedented in scope and vitality.
