Summary
In this unprecedented study, Lcia S approaches indigenous texts as creative works rather than source material. She offers a historical overview of the impact of these texts on mainstream Spanish-American and Brazilian literatures, detailing comparisons with native sources and making close analyses of major instances, such as Mrio de Andrades classic Macunaima (1928) and Mario Vargas Llosas The Storyteller (1986)
