Latin American History through the Novel by Lois Zamora

Latin American History through the Novel

UH Course - ENGL 4394

by Lois Zamora


Title Details

Running Time
25 Hrs. 25 Min.


The Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes has asserted that the real historians in Latin America are its novelists. We will examine this premise by reading a number of novels by contemporary Latin American writers, and discussing the historical events and personages depicted therein. Our interest is in how these novelists dramatize the history of their regions, and how their fictional versions illuminate our understanding of the "real" history of Latin America.
