SPAN 431 - Traces of Dante's Inferno in Hispanic Contemporary Literature (4)

After a careful reading of Dante's Inferno students will engage the vast and foundational influence of this text in Latin American and Spanish literatures, including Juan de Mena's Laberinto de la fortuna, Valle Inclán's Luces de Bohemia, Juan Rulfo's Pedro Páramo, Borges's El Aleph, José Donoso's Lugar sin límites. To theoretically approach these textual conversations, students will study the concept of dialogism and intertextuality featured in Mikhail Bakhtin's Dialogic Imagination. Cross Listed With: SII - 413.
