Mission Statement

The Latin American Literary Review is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to the literature of Latin America (including the United States), and Brazil. It is published semiannually in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Bringing to its readers the most recent writing of some of the leading scholars and critics in the fields of Hispanic and Portuguese literature, the Latin American Literary Review is of interest to all libraries and institutions of higher learning, and especially to all departments of English, Modern Languages, Latin American Studies, and Comparative Literature. Since its appearance in the Fall of 1972, the magazine has been very well received, and has aroused national and international interest.

Recognized by Library Journal as “a most important development for Latin American literature,” Latin American Literary Review‘s purpose has been to provide the academic community with a firsthand interpretation of Latin American literature and culture through feature essays and reviews of recent literary works.
