US Latino Literature is
not a recent phenomenon. From the 19th century Chicano writers have been
creating literary works which narrate the complex relationship between the Latin
and Anglo-saxon cultures.
Since the 1960s Latino/a
Literature has become one of the major literary manifestations within North
American Literature. The themes and the style that is present in these works
testifies the emergence of a consolidated literary corpus that goes back to the
origins and, at the same time, it portrays a new experience of being American.
Latinos are quite
different among themselves and this is reflected in their literary production.
In this site we will explore these differences and how each group translates their
own particular experience to their work. Special attention will pe paid to
the literary influences coming from both literary traditions, Anglo-saxon and
Latin American and the development into a new literary discourse that we can
properly call " US Latino."
