Description: 

This course provides an introduction to one of the fundamental chapters of twentieth-century literature: the generation known as the Latin American “boom”. Through the work of its most notable writers —Gabriel García Márquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, and José Donoso, among others— the course will study the literary works that made the reputation of Latin American literature, as well as the key role played by Barcelona in its emergence and diffusion.
