|55-316 Contemporary Latin American Fiction W(3-0)|
Over the past several decades the literature in Latin America has achieved a significant historical dimension. This course will examine, in English, why and how the leading figures, such as Borges, Cortazar, Sabato, Garcia Marquez, and Carlos Fuentes, have "made" history, not only in the way they have recreated the Latin American historical reality, but also in the way they have reformed the Spanish literary language. Students who select the course under the listing of 88-316 will do the readings and assignments in Spanish.
