Genres and forms not normally covered in the MFA
curriculum, eg., the short novel, libretti, the dramatic
monologue. Writing consists of both criticism particular to the
course focus, and writing representative of the form or genre
itself. May be taken once as a workshop course and once as a
literature course.
In this course we will investigate the ways in which fiction
writers through the twentieth century begin to question the
"politics" of narration-that is, the ways in which narration in
fiction models, replicates, and reinforces political systems in
the real world. Reading short stories, novels and theoretical
essays, we will further examine the ways in which writers,
through what are ordinarily understood to be "aesthetic"
experiments, reconfigured their narrative models in an effort
to discover a more ethical, and sometimes more democratic
politics (of narration).
08/2412/03
Advanced literary and critical focus on a single author,
movement, or period within a single major form, e.g. novel,
drama, poetry, essay, screenplay.

This is a survey of the most important works of literature
published in Latin America in the past thirty years. The novels
selected are intended to show a panoramic view of the poetics
that have emerged as a response to the success of the Latin
American "boom" of the 1960s, but also a number of
overlapping poetics, and their corresponding narrative devices
and the ideas that inform them. Designed to elicit both
creative and analytical responses, this course counts towards
the literature requirement.
