Bibliographic information


“Moreira’s book makes a solid contribution to the emerging field of Luso-Hispanic studies … . Moreira’s Literary and Cultural Relations between Brazil and Mexico is a solid piece of scholarship, which will interest scholars of Brazilian, Mexican, and Latin American literature, and particularly those interested, like Moreira, in challenging the notion that ‘mutual ignorance’ continues to characterize the reciprocal gazes of the Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking Americas.” (Robert Patrick Newcomb, The Luso-Brazilian Review, Vol. 53 (1), June, 2016)
