DOÑA BARBARA TURNS 80
It's been 80 years since Rómulo Gallegos published Doña Bárbara. And even though this is a blog dedicated to telenovelas, as an educator, I want to post here a couple of articles that appeared in today's Papel Literario in the Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional. In them we can read about the literary novel that is behind the telenovelas and films that have fascinated so many (I apologize to the English-speaking readers of this blog because both articles are in Spanish):
La Poesía Telúrica de Doña Bárbara por Lidia Salas
Foro: Distancia y Herencia en la Narrativa Venezolana (dirigido por José Tomás Angola).
