Latino Literature: Trial Database

Latino Literature  (trial until June 3rd)

This is a database of drama, fiction, and poetry written in English and Spanish by hundreds of Chicano, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican and other Central and South American  authors working in the United States.  About one third of the literary  works have never been published before.  The works are published in the original language.   Most works are from the 20th and 21st centuries, but some 19th century works are included.  The authors provide a window on "different immigration experiences, their efforts to adapt to a new culture and language without losing their own, and the struggle to pursue social, political, and economic advancement."
