This innovative college-level textbook for third-year college Spanish courses introduces the student to Latin American literature using a unique bilingual approach in which an English translation parallels the Spanish original. As such it is appropriate for courses which attempt to make the transition from basic language-acquisition courses to upper level elective language courses. Dr. Child also employs an historical approach, starting with the pre-Columbian oral traditions and covering five centuries through the Mexican Revolution; other features include an introductory biographical section, numerous graphs, charts, and a glossary of terms.

The texts are equipped with introductory comments in English with a visible vocabulary and copious notes designed to aid the students and introduce them to the universality of Latin and the rich range of syntax, vocabulary and styles that characterized the Latin used for almost a millennium and a half after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West and which formed the basis of much of the Latin element absorbed into the modern European languages.
