The Routledge companion to Latino/a literature.


The Routledge companion to Latino/a literature.

Ed. by Suzanne Bost and Frances R. Aparicio.



565 pages




Bost (English, Loyola U., Chicago) and Aparicio (Spanish and Portuguese, Northwestern U.) compile 47 essays by writers and scholars of English, gender studies, literature, Spanish, Latina/o studies, and other areas mostly from the US, who examine ideas, figures, terms, and debates in US Latino/a literature. They consider identity aspects like feminism, masculinities, queerness, illness and disability, and Latino/a studies in various parts of the world; the literature through the worldviews of citizenship, Marxist literary criticism, neoliberalism, nationalism, transnationalism, indigeneity, and environmentalism; language, folklore, popular music, spirituality, culinary, and visual art traditions in the literature; forms, such as theater, poetry, novels, memoir, magical realism, chick lit, science fiction, comics, and children's literature; and various canons, from Cuban-American literature, to Chicana/Latina lesbian literature, to the US Hispanic literary canon.
