Amor Ideal Cover

We know that literature as an art form offers readers the possibility of forming connections to other people’s life experiences and viewpoints.  But the study of a foreign language remains alien and distant until that language becomes a part of one’s mind and spirit.  What better tool to accomplish that than literature?

Myriam Borges Thompson was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She is an educator, a researcher of Latin American literature and history, and a writer. After a long absence, she returned to her native island to pursue her doctoral studies in the Department of Estudios Hispánicos at the University of Puerto Rico. Her doctoral research was about Carmen Hernández de Araújo (1824-1877), a founding member of Puerto Rican literature, poet, novelist, theologian, and one of the first Latin American women writers and playwrights. Dr. Thompson has also translated stories written by Carmela Eulate in a book titled With the Eyes of a Woman: Carmela Eulate's Stories of Family and Marriage, also published by Royal Fireworks Press.
