SPAN 2200 - The Latin American Boom and Exile of the Latino Writer in the America’s 21st Century


(3)
Offered as an elective to students interested in surveying the literature of Latin America from the past 50 years, this course will focus primarily on the “Latin American Boom,” its causes and legacies. Throughout the course, students will engage with the works of some of the most notable novelists of this era, to experience and analyze their innovations in narrative storytelling, linguistics and magical realism. Students will study, comment on and evaluate the literary precedents of Hispanic writers through a review of the work of the masters including Borjes, Sábato, Onetti and Artl before delving into the writings of newer writers like Fuentes, García Márquez, Vargas Llosa and Cortázar.
