Joining a timely conversation within the field of intra-American literature, Literary and Cultural Relations Between Brazil and Mexico, proposes an innovative assessment of cultural relations in Latin America in a context of enormous diversity. Paulo Moreira focuses on a series of imaginative encounters involving extraordinary writers, artists, filmmakers, and thinkers from Brazil and Mexico to represent the amazing potential of intercultural contacts within Latin America. Ultimately, these encounters serve as the basis for an important discussion about the reconfiguration of the idea of Latin America the mostly untold story of horizontal (south-south) contacts across a multilingual, multicultural continent.
