    New trends in contemporary Latin American narrative : post-national literatures and the canon - edited by Timothy R. Robbins and José Eduardo González
    Call Number: ebook
    Publication Date: Palgrave Macmillan, 2014
    Examining a rich new generation of Latin American writers, this timely collection offers new perspectives on the current status of Latin American literature in the age of globalization. Essays examine the anthology McOndo, which rejected magical realism as the primary literary mode of Latin America, and the Crack group, which argued for a return to more complex narrative, as turning points for Latin American narratives and for a new generation of authors.

    Instead of perpetuating the simple blueprint of Postboom magical realism, this volume argues that the authors studied in here combine social preoccupations, such as drug trafficking, with aesthetic ones. In many cases, authors like the Crack group members, Roberto Bolaño, Rodrigo Fresán, Evelio Rosero, or Ena Lucía Portela, directly dialogue with the Boom authors while other authors, like Diego Trelles Paz or Yolanda Arroyo, utilize new technologies to create dynamic creative projects.

    Bibliography of Hispanic literature at UC

    This bibliography lists Spanish and Latin American literature books (print and online) available at the University of Canterbury Library. They are listed following the Library of Congress (LC) classification scheme for Hispanic literature - PQ 6001-8897. Primary and secondary works are treated in the same way.

    The bibliography functions as a browse tool only, with geographical and chronological subject divisions. To search by author, work, subject, etc., use the Library catalogue or Multisearch.

    The bibliography may be used to browse Hispanic authors and their works in the UC Library by nationality and period. The links allow browsing from an individual country, eg., Mexico, to a literary author of that country, eg. Carlos Fuentes, to the catalogue records for the author's books held, eg. La cabeza de la hidra.

    Print books at other LC classifications apart from PQ 6001-8897 are not included in the bibliography. However greater leeway is accorded ebooks - eg., Luis Buñuel : the red years, 1929-1939 is included though mainly about Buñuel's filmmaking.

    NB: The PDF file is large so it might take a few minutes to download.
