Ihrie, Maureen, and Salvador A. Oropesa, eds. World literature in Spanish: an Encyclopedia. Santa Barbara, Calif.: ABC-CLIO, 2011

Providing a thorough introduction to Spanish-language literature worldwide and across time is a tall order. However, World Literature in Spanish: An Encyclopedia contains roughly 850 entries on both major and minor authors, themes, genres, and topics of Spanish literature from the Middle Ages to the present day, affording an amazingly comprehensive reference collection in a single work.
