The aim of the present paper is to study the role of the digital publishing industry in the context of the transposition into digital format of titles of a Latin American and Caribbean literary corpus. The main conclusions are articulated in the design of a corpus comprising titles and authors that Harold Bloom labels as a Latin American segment of the Western canon , in addition to those segments provided by feminist, queer, postcolonial, and/or decolonization critical theories; and, on the other hand, some of the strategies devised by major e-book retailers and digital libraries in order to offer transposed literature in digital format.
