As a student in graduate level courses, I have used this site extensively as
either primary or secondary resources for my classes. The wealth of material
that is available here is amazing, and it's clear that this is a project carried
out by those with a true passion for presenting the great essayists of the
Spanish-speaking world. For that reason, the texts are authentic and well
presented, and more is being added to the site all the time. I used this one
year ago for a course about the Latin American essay as a vehicle to discovering
identity, and continue to use it as I prepare for my Comprehensive exam. This
site has most definitely enhanced my learning by providing an easily available
resource to some documents which are otherwise difficult or expensive to obtain.
The background information on each of the essayists is also invaluable as an
additional source of information about the time in history about which these men
and women wrote. None of the essays are overly long, which makes the reading
not overly burdensome.

Technical Remarks:

The navigation around the site can sometimes seem a little puzzling, but there
is a search engine for the site which will always lead one to the information
that is being sought.
