The second semester of a two-semester survey on the literatures of
the Portuguese-speaking world. In this course, we will examine the

by late nineteenth and twentieth-century Lusophone authors. We will
read prose, poetry, and essays from Lusophone Africa, Brazil and
Portugal. Authors include Aluísio Azevedo, Machado de Assis, Miguel
Torga, Fernando Pessoa, Luis Bernardo Honwana, and Mia Couto.
