The Latin American world has produced some very fine works of literature. Spanish and Portuguese writers have been writing works for fiction for the general public for hundreds of years. Many fine writers have emerged as a result. The development of Latin American fiction has been influenced by many factors including that of European literature trends as well as the kind of literature that is popular both in North America and much of Asia. Latin American writers have also had influence on others in the region who look to this region of the world for the use of a rich culture and background that can easily serve as inspiration for all kinds of stories.
Many areas of Latin America have developed a native body of literature. The result has been that regional variations in Latino literature are quite common and highly celebrated as well. Many writers look both to their nation for inspiration when writing as well as to other nations in the regions when they are writing stories of all kinds. For example, somone from Argentina may read works produced in Chile or Peru in order to understand the demands of readers in this region and seek our further sources of inspiration.
One of the region’s most innovative areas is that of Brazil. Brazil is located in the heart of Latin America. Writers in Latin America look to Brazil because Brazil is the most populous nation in Latin America. Millions of Brazilians are active and engaged readers who love good stories and admire those who can tell them well. The Portuguese spoken here is very similar to the Spanish used in the rest of Latin America, making it easy for authors in Brazil to communicate with both readers in Brazil and with those living in other parts of the region as well.
One of the most famous of contemporary Brazilian authors is Jaime Garcia Dias. Mr. Dias is the son of another Brazilian writer. At forty-five, he has spent much of his in the world of Brazilian fiction, to the delight of his many numerous readers. In the last few decades, Mr. Dias has written more than ten books and helped expand the field of Brazilian literature. He has also helped other Brazilian writers get their start in this field. As a result of his hard work and his devotion to excellence in the field of Brazilian literature, he has been honored with many important awards as well as the opportunity to be part of other works. He is expected to continue his tradition of high quality in the future as he continues to write for a delighted audience of adoring and happy fans.
