A Companion to Modern Spanish American Fiction

A Companion to Modern Spanish American Fiction (ISBN10: 1855662175; ISBN13: 9781855662179)
ISBN13: 978-1855662179
ISBN10: 1855662175

Summary: With such figures as Jorge Luis Borges, Miguel ngel Asturias and Gabriel García Márquez (both the latter Nobel Prizewinners) Spanish American fiction is now unquestionably an integral part of the mainstream of Western literature. This book draws on the most recent research in describing the origins and development of narrative in Spanish America during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, tracing the pattern from Romanticism and Realism, through Modernismo, Naturalism and Regionalism to the
Boom and beyond. It shows how, while seldom moving completely away from satire, social criticism and protest, Spanish American fiction has evolved through successive phases in which both the conceptions of the writer's task and presumptions about narrative and reality have undergone radical alterations. DONALD SHAW holds the Brown Forman Chair of Spanish American literature in the University of Virginia.
