Literary oriented papers focus on Baroque poetry in colonial Mexico, on cultural aspects of colonial society and their reflection in literature. The issue is supplemented by one paper in Études section and by reviews on current publications from Italian applied linguistics and language historiography (section Comptes rendus). All papers and reviews come from foreign contributors and they are written in Spanish, French and Italian.
