Serving its role in disseminating literature and thought from Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries within the USA, the Observatorio welcomes versions in English produced by experienced or emerging translators, of short works originally written in Spanish, from various genres, periods and geographical origins, to be published on-line in this Translators’ corner.
