Literary workshop – Coordina: Ezequiel Gusmeroti
The readings proposed by this workshop will work throughout the same as the Alicia from Carroll, will have their logic. The works we will read will be the mirror through which we will pass to other possible worlds, always parallel to ours; fictitious, what is saying as real as ours, even if otros: in any case, it is always a passage in search of one's own voice.
To understand the complexity of contemporary literary production, a glance over previous centuries is essential to recognize continuities, breaks and dissolutions present in the current aesthetic field. The historical view will not necessarily follow a linear logic. Thus, the panorama of literature that the workshop proposes will present various texts, which will work like Mirrors that we will go through constantly, going and coming, crossing times, poetics and genres, permanently updating the sources of the past to further analyze the literature of the present - and vice versa.
The ultimate goal of the workshop is writing, what, like Alice to Wonderland, also comes through the mirror: for us, henceforth, the works that await -patients- our reading.
-Introduce to the study of the literary fact, his story, theory and criticism through the reading and analysis of authors and fundamental works.
-Problematize about intertextuality relationships, Crosses and influences between literary production and other contemporary artistic manifestations, fundamentally theatrical and cinematographic.
-Inquire about trends, movements and aesthetics of contemporary literature that allow us to glimpse the formation process, development and permanence or crisis of fundamental genres: tragedy, comedy, drama, poesía, story and novel.
