“Entries range from shorter, factual articles to longer essays, which offer an in-depth treatment of major figures, themes and movements and of national literatures. An introduction and chronology supply a main narrative and context, while systematic cross-referencing and indexing help to guide the reader through the information. The suggestions for further reading, which follow most entries and include English, Spanish and Portuguese works, are invaluable guides to further study and are complemented by a general bibliography which points to many other specialized works in the field.” “The Encyclopedia will be an invaluable reference resource for students and readers of Latin American or Caribbean literature. It will also be of great interest to those following Spanish or Portuguese language courses.”–BOOK JACKET.
