Hispanic Authors

The Spanish literary tradition is an integral and vibrant component to the liveliness of Hispanic society. From the idealistic optimism of Don Quixote in Miguel de Cervantes' epic of the same title, to the powerful narrative in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's award-winning "One Hundred Years of Solitude," to the poetry of revolution that stems from famed liberators like Jose Marti, Spanish and Latin American writers have greatly contributed to higher literary culture and political zeitgeist. To learn more about the Hispanic authors--past and present--and their writings, check out these links.
