Course Description

This course surveys the literatures of Portugal, Brazil, and Portuguese-speaking Africa from the late nineteenth century to the present. Students are introduced to a diverse group of authors—all writing in Portuguese—but from different geographic regions. We compare and think across cultures and study how authors respond to the historical and cultural challenges of their times. We read a variety of genres (prose, poetry, theater) and cover the major literary movements from realism and modernism, to social realism and contemporary feminist and post-modernist writing.

Class open to graduates only.
