Like labyrinths, literary texts confuse, surprise and sometimes mystify those who engage them. This course walks students through an array of provocative stories and poems by renowned Latin American and Spanish authors, untangling the mysterious nature of these works and making it possible to appreciate their art. Close readings of texts by Mario Vargas Llosa, Eduardo Galeano, Pablo Neruda, Jorge Luis Borges, Horacio Quiroga, Juan Jose´ Milla´s, and others will be undertaken. Literary themes and cultural issues revealed along this path – travel, immigration, exploitation, identity, etc. – will be points of departure for several written and oral projects to be carried out by students.
Course Open to: Degree Students
