SPA480.85 Overview of the Chilean Novel

Taught in Spanish at the Pontificia Universidad Católica and may not be offered every semester. This course presents a panoramic presentation of the Chilean novel, with special attention to cultural implications of national identity, considering the relationship between nation, literature, and (post-)modernity.

You will become acquainted with the most important Chilean novels of the 20th century that make up the “canon” and review the interpretations¬†over time. We’ll also revisit some novels that are not canonical because of their current relevance in light of this century’s social and cultural issues, and we’ll discuss recent novels for their aesthetic novelty.
