See course description for HISP-P 467 below:
This course introduces students to the major writers and literary periods of twentieth and twenty-first century Portuguese literature from 1915 to the present. We begin with Fernando Pessoa and modernism, move on to subsequent generations, Presença, neo-realism, existentialism, surrealism, and focus the second half of the course on post-modernist and contemporary work. Students become acquainted with different genres, including poetry, short story, novella, novel, and drama. While learning how to analyze and interpret diverse literary styles, students learn about a period in Portugal’s history of incredible cultural, social, and political change.
