"Against an Anemic Reading of Spanish Literature," a lecture by world-renowned Spanish novelist Juan Goytisolo.


Juan Goytisolo is considered one of five major Spanish writers today. His writing, which defies traditional political and sexual ideas, made him an instant target for Spain's Franco regime and led to his voluntary exile from Spain in 1960.

His latest book is entitled "Carajicomedia" and delves further into the idea of same-sex sexuality, boldly challenging the religious establishment. Notable in Goytisolo's works is his progressive self-outing since writing a thinly disguised autobiographical novel in 1970.

Goytisolo's critically acclaimed works include: "Marks of Identity," "Count Julian," and "John the Landless."


Monday, April 17 4 - 7 p.m.
