Demetrio Aguilera-Malta and Social Justice: The Tertiary Phase of Epic Tradition in Latin American Literature
Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1980 - Epic literature, Latin American - 301 pages
The originality of this book lies in its expansive comparative approach that deals with parallel techniques and themes recurring since the Iliad and culminating in a representative writer of contemporary Latin American fiction, an approach rarely essayed in studies of Latin American writers and one that places Latin American literature firmly and properly within the context of a major Western literary canon.
