E. Paz-Soldán.

Latin American literature is full of writers who one day were relevant but today have been forgotten. It is also full of writers whose life was so colorful that it has tended sometimes to obscure the merits of the work. This course will focus on these neglected and “damned” writers, trying to chart a sort of alternative history of Latin American literature. We will read authors such as Clemente Palma, Nellie Campobello, Francisco Tario, Hilda Mundy, Josefina Vicens, Jaime Saenz.
