Taught in Spanish at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica and may not be offered every semester. This course provides a look at the fundamentals of Chilean and Latin American narrative from the 19th and 20th centuries. We will study foundational texts starting with naturalism and leading to post-avant-garde literature (fantasy, magical realism, the historical novel, the postmodern novel).
