Reviewed by Steven Mills, Associate Professor, Buena Vista University on 10/15/21

The text provides an interesting approach to literature. Each work in the anthology contains an introduction with some biographical and literary context for the works. Then there is a work itself, followed by a bibliography. The introduction is... read more

Reviewed by Carles Ferrando Valero, Assistant Professor, Bowling Green State University on 1/28/21

The textbook does not cover all areas of Hispanic literatures--but which one really does? It's not like there is a universal consensus on how we define such areas--regions, countries, continents, hemispheres? Do we include literary works from... read more

Reviewed by David Ramirez, Assistant Professor, Rhode Island College on 11/29/20

Antología abierta de literatura hispana includes authors from Latin America (11 entries) and Spain (10 entries) spanning a period of seven centuries. It begins in 13th century Spain with Don Juan Manuel and, following a chronological order, ends... read more

Reviewed by Walfrido Dorta, Assistant Professor, Susquehanna University on 3/14/20

Since this is an open anthology, it would be unfair to judge its comprehensiveness in absolute terms. It is not a completed text; it can be modified or changed with collaborations. In its current online form, the anthology is pretty comprehensive... read more

Reviewed by Katrina Heil, Associate Professor, East Tennessee State University on 10/8/19

As noted in other reviews, the online anthology covers a far broader range of authors than the PDF. This review will be based on the online version. There are selections from 21 Spanish and Latin American authors offered, ranging from la Edad... read more

Reviewed by Meredith Jeffers, Associate Professor of Spanish, Metropolitan State University of Denver on 7/8/19

As of the date of this review (7.7.19), the online edition of this textbook is considerably more comprehensive than the PDF download. As mentioned by previous reviewers, the PDF version is comprised of 9 chapters, each representing a different... read more

Reviewed by Juanita Devereaux, Senior Spanish Instructor II, University of Oregon on 6/12/19

Editor Dr. Julie Ann Ward, co-editors Alice Barrett and Kaylee Bradberry and a team of 23 contributing student editors from the University of Oklahoma compiled a wide range of literary texts from nine writers, seven centuries and six countries in... read more

Reviewed by Pablo Pastrana-Pérez, Associate Professor, Western Michigan University on 5/31/19

This anthology includes nine reading selections by nine distinct authors from a wide-ranging selection of places. There are three poems and six short works of prose, in all ranging from one to thirteen pages, thus making the selections highly... read more

Reviewed by Gonzalo Baptista, Assistant Professor, Emory and Henry College on 4/12/19

The textbook covers a good range of topics and authors, those within the canon (Darío, Quiroga, Pardo Bazán, Gómez de Avellaneda, Don Juan Manuel, Cristóbal Colón o Storni) as well as various marginal voices (Juana Manso de Noronha and La Condesa... read more

Reviewed by Lisa Notman, Adjunct Instructor of Spanish, Portland State University on 4/7/19

The editor is clear in her introduction that this is the beginning of what she hopes will be a larger project. In it's current form it feels a little random and it's difficult to understand why particular authors were selected to be a part of the... read more

Reviewed by Lucy  Morris, Lecturer , James Madison University on 3/11/19

This anthology strives to provide a sample of texts which span from some of the earliest expressions of Hispanic literature, in the 13th century, to the early 20th century. Not only do we get to experience a cross-view of time, with corresponding... read more

Reviewed by Oleski Miranda Navarro, Visiting Assistant Professor , Augustana College on 11/15/18

La antología está concebida con textos de nueve autores nacidos entre el siglo XIII y el siglo XIX. El índice es claro y cada sección se compone de una introducción al autor, un texto anotado y una bibliografía. read more

Reviewed by Pablo Serna, Spanish Instructor - Romance Languages & Literatures Acad. Advisor, University of Missouri on 11/6/18

All material is pertinent to the title and the index is clear. The span of time for the texts used, makes this book an useful tool for Introductory Literature levels but not for advanced courses. read more

Reviewed by Carlos Bertoglio, Assistant Professor, Southern Utah University on 6/19/18

This is an open anthology so it is hard to judge this text based on its comprehensiveness since from its very title it is indicated that this is not intended to be a closed, complete text. As it stands now, this anthology is a miscellaneous... read more

Reviewed by Maria Jose Bordera-Amerigo, Associate Professor, Randolph-Macon College on 5/21/18

This text is a magnificent initiative that includes the participation of both students and Faculty of the University of Oklahoma Spanish program. The book is an anthology of nine authors from the Hispanic World. It includes both canonical... read more

Reviewed by Jose Fabara, Lecturer, LaGuardia Community College, CUNY on 5/21/18

This is an unusual book and I can't really argue that it is comprehensive. If you are teaching Spanish literature, this would not be the book I would choose. The readings cover a huge span of time--13th Century to the early 20th Century. I am not... read more

Reviewed by Fernando Rojas-Galván, Instructor of Spanish, Clatsop Community College, Astoria, Oregon on 5/21/18

The book is comprehensive, useful, and beneficial for those wishing to teach, learn, and examine Hispanic Literature. read more
