Any conversation about the political power of literature, or the cultural consciousness promoted by poetry, can't go on more than a few moments without the mention of any number of Latin American authors. Over the last 200 years at least, Latino novelists, poets, and playwrights have pushed the boundaries of conventional narrative, teased the line between fact and fiction, and have demonstrated the true, material power of literature time and time again. From the magical realism of the Latin American Boom that breathed new vitality into the global sphere of fiction, to the Cuban poetry and prose that defined an independence movement, to the coming-of-age novels that help process the Latin American diaspora for an entire global community, the contributions of Latino authors cannot be overstated.

In this gallery, let's take a look at some of the most influential Latin American authors in history.
