Originally published in Spanish in 1970, Watunna is the epic history and creation stories of the Makiritare, or Yekuana, people living along the northern bank of the Upper Orinoco River of Venezuela, a region of mountains and virgin forest virtually unexplored even to the present. The first English edition of this book was published in 1980 to rave reviews. This edition contains a new foreword by David Guss, as well as Mediata, a detailed myth that recounts the origins of shamanism.

Annotation The volume is the second annual of "CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture, a thematic volume with selected papers from material published in the journal in volumes 3.1-4 (2001) and 4.1-4 (2002), edited by Sophia A. McClennen and Earl E. Fitz. The genesis of the texts in the volume is in the growing conviction of the editors that, given its vitality and excellence, Latin American literature deserves a more prominent place in comparative literature publications, curricula, and disciplinary discussions. The editors argue that there still exists, in some quarters, a lingering bias against literature written in Spanish and Portuguese, and that by embracing Latin American literature more enthusiastically, comparative literature in the context of comparative cultural studies would find itself reinvigorated, placed into productive discourse with a host of issues, languages, literatures, and cultures that have too long been paid scant attention in its purview. Following an introduction by the editors, the volume contains papers by Gene H. Bell-Villada on the question of canon, by Gordon Brotherston and Lucia de Sa on the first peoples of the Americas and their literature; by Elizabeth Coonrod Martinez on the Latin American novel of the 1920s; by Roman de la Campa on Latin American studies; by Earl E. Fitz on Spanish American and Brazilian literature; by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria on Latin American and comparative literature; by Sophia A. McClennen on comparative literature and Latin American studies; by Alberto Moreiras on Borges; by Julio Ortega on the critical debate about Latin American cultural studies; by Christina Marie Tourino on Cuban Americans in New York City; by Mario J. Valdeson the comparative history of literary cultures in Latin America; and by Lois Parkinson Zamora on comparative literature and globalization. Compiled by Sophia A. McClennen, the volume also contains a bibliography of scholars.

Myth: A New Symposium offers a broad-based assessment of the present state of myth study. It was inspired by a revisiting of the influential mid-century work Myth: A Symposium (edited by Thomas Sebeok). A systematic introduction and 15 contributions from a wide spectrum of disciplines offer a range of views on past myth study and suggest directions for the future. Contributors blend theoretical analysis with richly documented historical, ethnographic, and literary illustrations and examples drawn from Native American, classical, medieval, and modern sources.
