Book description

Argentine Literature continues to figure prominently in academic programs in the English-speaking world, and it has an increasing presence in English translation in international prizes and trade journals. A History of Argentine Literature proposes a major reimagining of Argentine literature attentive to production in indigenous and migration languages and to current debates in Literary Studies. Panoramic in scope and incisive in its in-depth studies of authors, works, and theoretical problems, this volume builds on available scholarship on canonical works but opens up the field to include a more diverse rendering as well as engaging with the full spectrum of textual interventions from travel writing to drama, from popular 'gauchesca' to celebrated avant guard works Working at the crossroads of disciplines, languages and critical traditions, this book accounts for the wealth of Argentine cultural  production and maps the rich, diverse and often overlooked history of Argentine literature.
