Cortázar and “Viaje a la semilla” would be other stories to read; I read these in this course, which shows that it was avant-garde when I took it.
I could make this iteration cohesive around a theme: stories of love and death. That would fit, if loosely, for almost all the writers I am thinking of using. I am emphasizing narrative, un petit peu.
I am going to give García Lorca more seriously the following spring and we can study poetry and drama and essay then.
Shaping up now, it is:
Borges, Nueva antología personal
Garcia Lorca, Bodas de Sangre
—, some poetry and essays, and N. Guillén, the same, and C. Méndez; we will study metrics with short poems
García Márquez, Crónica de una muerte anunciada
Klein, La narración
Poniatowska, Querido Diego
