A master class from the exhilarating writer Julio Cortzar I want you to know that Im not a critic or theorist which means that in my work I look for solutions as problems arise So begins the first of eight classes that the great Argentine writer Julio Cortzar delivered at UC Berkeley in 1980 These classes are as much reflections on Cortzars own writing career as they are about literature and the historical moment in which he lived Covering such topics as the writers path while my aesthetic world view made me admire writers like Borges I was able to open my eyes to the language of street slang lunfardo and the fantastic unbeknownst to me the fantastic had become as acceptable as possible and real as the fact of eating soup at eight oclock in the evening Literature Class provides the warm and personal experience of sitting in a room with the great author As Joaquin Marco stated in El Cultural exploring this course is to dive into Cortzar designing his own creations Essential for anyone reading or studying Cortzar cronopio or not
