Spanish Grammar Through Literature


Upper-level Spanish anthology that deepens cultural
understanding of Hispanic literature and culture

¡Hola y bienvenidos a Encuentros maravillosos! Encuentros maravillosos is a highly praised all-Spanish anthology that introduces students to modern Hispanic literature presented in universal themes that connect with today’s learners.

Infused with the rich nuances of Hispanic cultures through literature, students are encouraged to read, touch the life of the author, and feel the content in ways that are meaningful to them. Many opportunities are provided for students to reflect, connect, and take their language learning experience beyond the textbook.


Instill a love for Hispanic culture and literature while preparing students for the AP® Spanish Literature and Culture Exam.

In each of the 14 chapters, students communicate about issues that touch them personally while expanding their vocabulary and grammar skills—all connected to the theme, the literature selection, and the author’s work. Each authentic literature selection is accompanied by vocabulary development, reading strategies, author background, and more.

The writers in the anthology include: Borges, Neruda, Cortázar, Unamuno, Matute, García Márquez, Esquivel, García Lorca, Allende, Guillén, Machado, Storni, Alegría, Zamora, Curis, Ibarbourou, and Nervo.


Self-expression and reflection is central to
the Spanish-language learning experience.
