Karina Vazquez Publishes Book

Dr. Karina Vazquez, Assistant Professor of Spanish, has had her book, Fogwill: realismo y mala conciencia, published this August by Ediciones Circeto.
The book is a study of the return of the realist aesthetic to the Argentine narrative in Rodolfo Fogwill's novels Vivir afuera (1998), La experiencia sensible (2001), and En otro orden de cosas (2001). The main purpose of this work is to explore and explain a key transformation that ocurred at the end of the nineties: the move from an aesthetic of allusion, inaugurated by Ricardo Piglia's novel Respiracion artificial (translated as "Artificial Respiration" - 1980), to a "realist" aesthetic proposal. The book presents a reflection on literary autonomy and the complex relationship between fiction and reality.
