Juan Bosch (1909-2001), president of the Dominican Republic in 1963, was a politician and writer. This work is a compilation of essays on the short stories of Juan Bosch (1909-2001). They include studies on cenesthesia, hyperbole, expressionism, impressionism, time, magic realism, myths, female characters in a social, political, and historical context; and children characters with their vital thematic and structural roles.


“Professor Ossers’ collection of essays provides a close and thoughtful reading of Bosch’s intriguing world and its often-tragic characters, condemned by poverty and social injustice. Well written and crafted, these essays clearly demonstrate the author’s understanding of the complexities and contradictions of the Dominican socio-economical and historical context in which Bosch’s narratives take place. Through his essays, Professor Ossers skillfully examines a variety of recurring topics in Bosch’s works, many of which have not been thoroughly explored among critics, such as the representation of children in Bosch’s short stories, and effectively ties them to Bosch’s sharp critical vision of Dominican society.” – Prof. Nayla Chehade, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
