Description
Visiones is a unique anthology of Spanish literature that employs literary texts to explore social, political, and economic issues specific to Hispanic cultures. The book approaches literary texts--novels, short stories, poetry, drama, and essays--in a new way, by focusing not on traditional literary analysis but on the social aspects of the works. The writings represent Latin America as well as Spain, and they encompass diverse topics ranging from urban living conditions to sexism in Hispanic society to different cultural attitudes that foreign business executives may encounter. Written for intermediate and advanced students of business Spanish, the anthology is also an appropriate supplement for Spanish culture and international studies classes. The original literary texts (some presented complete and others in fragments) are accompanied by a biographical sketch of the author, a short explanation of the social and economic circumstances portrayed in the selection, pre- and postreading exercises, vocabulary, discussion questions, and glossaries. Offering an authentic view of social and cultural realities in countries with Spanish-speaking populations, this book will prove invaluable to students preparing to participate in Spanish culture and especially the world of business.
