Brevity as an Art Form

In both literature and film, brevity has been recognize as a superior artistic form. Augusto Monterroso's "El Dinosaurio" (only one line) has been celebrated as a perfect short story, and "Bagdah Messi" (18 minutes) by Sahim Omar Kalifa) could also be considered a work of art. This course will choose no less than 20 short stories and shorts, to analyze and comment, besides a couple of books on the theory of the short literature.
