About

Overview

LITERATURA Y ARTE introduces the student to literary works by both Spanish and Spanish-American writers and to the rich and diverse contributions of Hispanic artists to the fine arts. The accompanying exercises also stress the development of reading, writing, and speaking skills and include vocabulary-building and conversational activities. One of the unique features of the program is the thematic unity of the texts. Each unit of each textbook has the same theme as the corresponding unit of the others highlighting dialogues and conversation from one volume to the history and chronology of another volume.

Features and Benefits

  • Each chapter presents a brief essay about an artist from the Spanish-speaking world followed by several representations of that artist's work.
  • The book helps develop students' reading skills and introduces them to certain literary and cultural concepts that enhance their comprehension of the unique qualities of Spanish-speaking civilization.
  • Readings that expose students to literature are level appropriate and thematically linked to the core text, CONVERSACIÓN Y REPASO.
  • Exercises precede each literary reading to introduce students to new vocabulary, to develop the reading skill, and to lead them into the theme of the selection.
  • LITERARURA Y ARTE exposes students to literature, film, and art while supporting the grammar they have learned in the core text.
