Best-selling writer Isabel Allende, one of the most widely read Latin American female authors, frames each narrative within an historical context or current event. Her creative process recounts stories in which protagonists explore and endure life’s challenges. Her narrative frequently embraces situations related to social justice and women’s rights, always central to her work and heart. In this course we will explore Allende’s use of magic realism, geographical setting, imagery, word choice, and other stylistic devices in her narrative. Conducted in Spanish by Dr. Lynn McGovern.

"It was a great course and one of the best online courses that I have taken. It was a great balance of learning without being overdemanding- which is very appreciated while I am also teaching full time during a pandemic. Lynn was great!"
