Summary

This rich, diverse collection features more than 50 authentic and accessible literary selections by classical and contemporary Spanish and Latin American writers.Appropriate for use at the intermediate level in combination with other Spanish texts or as the main text in a literature, conversation/composition, or culture course,Aventuras literarias is designed to accompany the intermediate core text, ¡Continuemos! 7/e.

  • Designed to promote critical thinking about literature, this reader develops students' ability to read and understand authentic works, to express their ideas orally and in writing, and to employ literary terms and concepts in analyzing content and style.
  • New! A revised organization features 10 chapters with a more balanced progression of prose and poetry selections that progress from simpler, shorter readings in early chapters to lengthier or more complex works in later chapters.
  • Enhanced! A more diverse representation of writers features women writers from Latin America and Spain (Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Olga Ramírez de Arellano, Ana María Matute, and Silvia Molina), contemporary Latin American writers (such as Borges, Cortázar, and García Márquez), and new selections by Dominican Blas R. Jiménez and Mexican American José Antonio Burciaga.
  • New! To facilitate course management, each literary selection is accompanied by in-context examples of structures introduced in the corresponding lesson of ¡Continuemos!
  • New! Expanded pre-reading support now includes the presentation of vocabulary followed by a preparatory activity for practice.
  • New! Practice with connections to everyday life: A conversation activity following each reading selection encourages students to discuss themes and issues in the context of their own lives.
