En Otra Voz: Antologia de Literatura Hispana de Los Estados Unidos

Front Cover
En otra voz is the first Spanish-language anthology to bring together literature from the entire history of Hispanic writing in the United States, from the age of exploration to the present. The product of hundreds of scholars working with the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage program over ten years, the anthology compiles for the first time scores of previously unknown works in the Spanish language written by Hispanics of diverse ethnic backgrounds and classes. It is the most comprehensive literary collection available in Spanish, spanning more than three centuries and including a broad range of genres.

Organized chronologically into three sections which represent the three major manifestations of Hispanic culture in the United States Native, Exile, and Immigration, the anthology goes beyond the written tradition to also include oral literature: folk songs, tales, personal experience narratives, rhymes, etc.

The anthology includes the political essays of revolutionaries and reactionaries, cul-tural elites and workers, academic creative writers and street poets, all reflecting the His-panic condition, past and present. Of course, such familiar names as Reinaldo Arenas, René Marqués, Cherríe Moraga, Dolores Prida, Piri Thomas, and Luis Valdez are found in its pages, as well as those of anonymous bards and numerous unheralded writers whose works appeared in Spanish-language newspapers in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Page 7 - ... oír, y esto les duró más de media hora; y cierto ver que estos hombres tan sin razón y tan crudos, a manera de brutos, se dolían tanto de nosotros, hizo que en mí y en otros de la compañía creciese más la pasión y la consideración de nuestra desdicha.
