    THE famous literature? I'd say there are a few.

    One style of writing closely associated with Latin America is Magical Realism. It's characterized by supernatural occurrences which are not noted as being anything out of the ordinary in the lives of common people. Probably the most famous author in this genre is Gabriel Garcia Marquez, author of _Love in the Time of Cholera_ and _100 Years of Solitude_.

    Latin America also has a rich poetic tradition; the poet best known and most celebrated among English-language readers is probably Pablo Neruda.
