This course will focus on the literary production of some leading Latin American writers of the 20th century. Through a close reading of selected texts, we will examine the relationship between history and fiction, representations and otherness, politics and violence, and cities and cultures in several Spanish-speaking authors. By contrasting historical events and literary versions, this class intends to highlight ideological and aesthetic strategies of textual construction in Latin America, as well as the role of the intellectual and the uses of fiction in the formation of a modern culture and society.
