Reviews

“Prof. Lopes has enhanced the present anthology through her introductory essay, which gives a broad yet precise overview of Brazilian fiction and of the nation’s main sociopolitical trends from the late 1800’s through the twentieth century. The information presented facilitates access and meaningful reading of the stories themselves in context by “lay” readers who may lack prior training in South American literary and historical-political development. Each literary selection is further prefaced by a succinct bio-bibliographical introduction to the respective author, situating each writer within the framework of the broader world of national letters and serving as a “springboard” for further investigation by interested readers. The present work promises to be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of scholars of comparative literature and interested recreational readers alike.”
- Prof. Mary L. Daniel, University of Wisconsin-Madison
