SPAN 6720 - [Roberto Bolano and the Problem of Evil]

Spring. Not offered 2017-2018. 4 credits. Student option grading.

E. Paz-Soldán.

This course examines the life and work of the late Chilian writer Roberto Bolaño, one of the most influential writers in twenty-first century literature. We will study his poems, essays, short stories and novels, focusing in his constant obsession with the problem of evil, which he explored in multiple contexts: local, Latin American, and global. We will see the philosophical and literary underpinnings of his writing, the way Bolaño created his particular universe, in which horror and humor go hand in hand.
