Exploring Genre Through Jorge Luis Borges

All Levels | For writers interested in magical realism, fantasy, and the metaphysical, this class will look closely at the short stories of Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. Through lecture, discussion, and generative writing exercises, we’ll explore what sets his stories apart as works of fiction, emphasizing his use of the following devices: the work within the work, the contamination of reality by dream, the voyage in time, and the double.
