Course Description

Prerequisite:  S280 or Consent of the Department

This course provides an introduction to the critical reading of Hispanic literature. Not only will the course familiarize you with some important literary texts, but it will also help you develop the critical vocabulary (narratological, poetic, dramaturgical, rhetorical) needed to analyze and communicate ideas effectively about these. We will read representative works of prose fiction, theater and poetry from Spain and Latin America, and develop grounded interpretations that consider form, genre and socio-historical context. The assignments and activities are intended to promote critical discussion of Hispanic literature, prepare students for advanced classes in literature and culture, and help students improve their written and oral communication skills in Spanish.

This course carries CASE AH and CASE GCC distribution credit.
