The poetry section begins with Dario and modernismo (1888-1910), postmodernismo (1910-1918) and vanguardismo (1918-1938): Neruda, Vallejo, Huidobro, Mistral, and Paz, among others, and concludes with postvanguardismo: Afro-Caribbean and other post-war poetic currents. Prose fiction will begin with realismo or criollismo (1880s-1930s), but will focus on the post-1940s, when Latin-American prose begins to enjoy international renown: Borges, Carpentier and Asturias, precursors to the “boom,” then Fuentes, Sabato, Vargas Llosa, Donoso, Cortazar, and Garcia Marquez, whose works popularized “magic realism.” The course will conclude with contemporary writers, such as Cabrera Infante, Allende, and Puig.
