      Chats in the Stacks: Jonathan Monroe on Framing Roberto Bolaño: Poetry, Fiction, Literary History, Politics

      To grasp the achievements of writer Roberto Bolaño, whose work encompasses both Europe and the Americas, one must understand not only poetry and fiction but also literary history and politics, argues Jonathan Monroe, a professor of comparative literature and a member of the graduate fields of comparative literature, English, and Romance studies at Cornell.

      In this Chats in the Stacks talk, Monroe will discuss his new book, Framing Roberto Bolaño: Poetry, Fiction, Literary History, Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2019), which contributes to an expanded understanding of the entirety of Bolaño’s work and his importance within both hemispheric studies and world literature.

      This book talk is sponsored by Olin Library. Light refreshments will be served.

      Cost: Free -

      Categories: Literary & Books
