Overview

The seventh edition of Modern Spanish Prose offers a polished collection of engaging stories written by Spanish and Latin American authors. The selection is meant to provide third and fourth semester students with intellectually mature pieces of varied genres that require no simplification, adaptation, or abridgement. The comprehensible style, universal themes, and selection of authors contribute to the success of this popular anthology.

 

Gustave W. Andrian is professor emeritus and former department chair at Trinity College. He has taught courses at the beginning, intermediate, and post-intermediate levels, including Twentieth Century Spanish Literature and Stylistics.
