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 reggaet#xC3;#xB3;n. In six chronological sections#xE2;#xAC;#x1D;Colonization, Annexation, Acculturation, Upheaval, Into the Mainstream, and Popular Traditions#xE2;#xAC;#x1D;the anthology encompasses diverse genres, and it features writers such as Jos#xC3;#xA9; Mart#xC3;#xAD;, William Carlos Williams, Julia Alvarez, Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina Garc#xC3;#xAD;a, Piri Thomas, Esmeralda Santiago, and Junot D#xC3;#xAD;az. Thirteen years in the making, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature sheds new light on "nuestra Am#xC3;#xA9;rica" through a gathering of writing unprecedented in scope and vitality.
