This book comprises a collection of articles devoted to the academic study of popular texts in English. Authors analyse genres which had been habitually looked down on by canonical approaches to literature and art. They take into serious consideration forms like horror literature, the gothic, fantasy, de-tective fiction, science fiction, best-sellers, films and television series of different kinds... among some other representations of what conservative scholars had been considering as marginal. The referential richness of the perspectives reflected here demonstrates that popular texts can be enjoyable for readers and audiences, at the same time that they can be significant in order to reach a better understanding of our culture and ourselves at the beginning of a new millennium.

El autor escribe: “Así cómo uno recoge las legumbres en una hortaliza para cocinarlas y servirlas, se pueden recoger los recuerdos en el huerto de la memoria, cocinarlos y servirlos al través de la escritura, con el deseo de satisfacer el paladar del espíritu tanto del que escribe como de los que leen.” Huegel invita a sus lectores lo acompañen a la mesa de sus recuerdos, para gozar el sabor de sus vivencias durante su adolescencia en la Ciudad de México en aquellos lejanos años de 1935 a 1947. Relata con claridad sus experiencias desde una visita al Palacio Nacional a la edad de seis años para ver el desfile del 16 de Septiembre, hasta su participación a la edad de quince en la Conferencia Interamericana sobre los Problemas de la Paz y la Guerra celebrada en la Ciudad de México en febrero de 1945.
