LET 271
Fantastical Writings: 20th-Century Latin American and U.S. Latino(a) Fiction
Fall and Spring

The focus emphasizes short narrative texts which designate "uncanny," "abnormal," and/or "extraordinary" experiences as a challenge to some of the fundamental assumptions underpinning realist fiction, and as a way to engage in critical consideration of philosophical, literary, and other humanistic questions. Topics include the nature of reality, being and existence, time and space, death, humor, the power of words and imagination, and the limits of human knowledge.
Offered every other year beginning 2021-22.
