Spanish-American Short Stories / Cuentos Hispanoamericanos: A Dual-Language Book (Dual-Language Book)by Stanley, Comp Appelbaum
Synopses & Reviews
These seventeen stories from the Caribbean and Central and South America encompass a tremendous variety of subjects, settings, moods, and styles — from worldly sophistication to outright savagery. Ranging in publication dates from 1867 to 1922, each story is by a different writer from a different country. All are well-known names in Spanish-American literature — Rubén Darío, José Martí, Amado Nervo, Rómulo Gallegos, and Ricardo Palma — some of whom are otherwise distinguished as novelists, poets, diplomats, and statesmen.
This dual-language edition features an informative introduction and ample footnotes, making it not only a pleasure to read but also a valuable educational aid for students and teachers of Spanish-American literature.
These 17 stories from the Caribbean and Central and South America encompass the works of Rub
én Darío, José Martí, Amado Nervo, Rómulo Gallegos, and Ricardo Palma.
