A teacher bids farewell

A teacher bids farewell

By: Ricardo Fernández Aguilà

208 pages

This is the story of the final year of a literature teacher's career. What happens when he closes the classroom door and turns to his students? And what happens when the most important writers in literary history show up to class as well? According to the syllabus, the students must learn about them. But how is the teacher to go about it when these writers portrayed a life from decades or centuries ago; a world so different from the one the students know? This book is an act of resistance against forgetting and the temptation to drain the relevance of the cultural past in the classroom.
