    But be warned that Cartan requires a bit more mathematical maturity (for instance, he talks a lot in the language of abstract algebra and makes references to theorems of point set topology).

    Another text I prefer to Ahlfors is Lang's (25$):

    https://www.amazon.com/Complex-Anal...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1217817479&sr=1-2

    The series is "Graduate Text in Mathematics" but Part I of the book is what's covered by an undergrad course.
