Augusto Roa Bastos

In this interview, we meet the eminent Paraguayan writer, Augusto Roa Bastos, who, in his short stories and two novels—Hijo de Hombre and Yo el Supremo—uses a rich, experimental language to create a vast, complex, and interrelated world. Roa Bastos explores a familiar theme of the Latin American writer: the violence, injustice, and repression of Spanish colonial society. The depth of his analysis and the strength of his talent rank him among the best narrators of the story of Spanish America. (Spanish, 46 minutes)
