Latin American Literature

This unit will help us understand more about the Latin American region and its literature while also examining how revolution affects literature.  We will study short stories, poetry, and speeches from Latin American writers during this unit in an attempt to understand why and how societal turmoil affects the topic and style of literature.  We will examine how details, diction, and other figurative language create meaning as well, and our central project will focus on the major conflicts in the Latin American region.
