Great anthology. Honestly, I skimmed most if the information and focused on the texts by or about Puerto Rican culture and people. It was a really great way to expand my knowledge of Puerto Rican writers and playwrights and to become better acquainted with the issues they faced at various points in history, including colonization.

The author knows well his subject and brings about this literary work. Goes from the time of the Colonization where the actions were documented by the Friers like Fray Bartolome de las Casas to the 20th Century with writers like Bernardo Vega, Pedro Albizu Campo, Rene Marques and others with a corssover of some Spanish writers from Spain. I do like the compendium of historical references and short biographies as a footnote at the end of the pages. Serves as a good reference book.
