Cutting-edge and insightful discussions of Latin American literature and culture

In the newly revised second edition of A Companion to Latin American Literature and Culture, Sara Castro-Klaren delivers an eclectic and revealing set of discussions on Latin American culture and literature by scholars at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The included essays--whether they're written from the perspective of historiography, affect theory, decolonial approaches, or human rights--introduce readers to topics like gaucho literature, postcolonial writing in the Andes, and baroque art while pointing to future work on the issues raised.

This work engages with anthropology, history, individual memory, testimonio, and environmental studies. It also explores:
* A thorough introduction to topics of coloniality, including the mapping of the pre-Columbian Americas and colonial religiosity
* Comprehensive explorations of the emergence of national communities in New Imperial coordinates, including discussions of the Muisca and Mayan cultures
* Practical discussions of global and local perspectives in Latin American literature, including explorations of Latin American photography and cultural modalities and cross-cultural connections
* In-depth examinations of uncharted topics in Latin American literature and culture, including discussions of femicide and feminist performances and eco-perspectives

Perfect for students in undergraduate and graduate courses tackling Latin American literature and culture topics, A Companion to Latin American Literature and Culture, Second Edition will also earn a place in the libraries of members of the general public and PhD students interested in Latin American literature and culture.

Sara Castro-Klaren is Emerita Professor of Latin American Culture and Literature at the Johns Hopkins University. She has published several books on the Latin American novel, with a particular focus on the works of Jose Maria Arguedas, Mario Vargas Llosa, Julio Cortazar, and Diamela Eltit.
