A discussion with Rolena Adorno and Roberto González Echevarría, authors of the recently published Breve historia de la literatura latinoamericana colonial y moderna (Madrid, 2017). The two parts of the Breve historia are hinged by Andrés Bello, the Venezuelan polymath, and range from Columbus to Bolaño, while devoting attention to authors rarely considered by the general public such as Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala, Esteban Echeverría, and Severo Sarduy. The discussion will center on how various periods of Latin American literature engage each other and how current literature deals with the past and with literatures in other languages.Buy tickets/get more info now
