Beschrijving

The course provides students with an introduction to the literature of Brazil through the study of a selection of texts chosen from a variety of genres. Focusing on 20th and 21st century texts, the course will explore the relationship between literature and society, mindful of the historical and cultural contexts in which the texts under examination were produced. Literature provides a fascinating entry point into issues regarding the formation of a national identity alongside issues such as gender and race.
Primary reference to literary texts used will be in English translation (Dutch translation will also be made available whenever possible), alongside the Portuguese original. Important linguistic/cultural references that might be lost in translation will be addressed by the course tutor.
