Canning House and King's College London present 'Great Books of the Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian World.'
Academic members of staff from the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, King’s College London, invite you to join us in reading some of the great books from the Spanish and Portuguese speaking worlds. Our aim is to share our enthusiasm and passion for some of these great writers and, through approaching them with new readers, to be introduce to new perspectives.
In this new series, we will concentrate on the short story, a genre that has produced some of the most wonderful writing across the Iberian worlds. The collections of short stories we will read are in either Spanish or Portuguese and in each case translation into English is available.
*Course particpants must source their own copy of the books. Many are available second hand at very reasonable prices online. Some are available in e-book format.*
WHEN: This course has been postponed until the Autumn Term 2013. Please contact us for further information.
