Through a macro and micro analysis of texts dominated by the English language, this research aims at showing the contribution made to the U.S. South and its literature by Southern writers of latino origins, in order to demonstrate their integration in the regional literary landscape, with a literature heavily sensitive to questions of borders, multiculturalism and languages interactions. Through the analysis of the confluence and/or divergence between writing modes and literary topos in the works of writers drawing their origins from bordering Spanish-speaking countries and writing in English, allied to the use of postcolonial theories and contemporary literary criticism, it seems sensible to outline the directions taken by the new Southern literature. This work allows the putting forward of the emergence of the remapping of a South now defined by its inclusive and polyphonic status, at least in literary works, as opposed to a South usually seen as dominated by the U.S. and structured around essentialized historical, cultural, and identity markers.
