Course Description

Prerequisite:  S280 or Consent of the Department

This course provides critical tools and concepts needed for the advanced study of Hispanic literatures through close readings of selected literary works from Spain and Spanish America. We will develop interpretive skills relating to four distinct genres—prose, poetry, theater and film—and will familiarize ourselves with the conceptual vocabulary of contemporary literary criticism. The course will emphasize the importance of socio-historical context for literary analysis, insofar as literary works are influenced by the historical moment or time in which they are written or because, in some cases, writers turn to literature in an effort to break out of the confines from within which they write. Readings include works by Cervantes, Quevedo, Góngora, Garcilaso, Sor Juana, Bécquer, Darío, Agustini, Paz, Vallejo, Usigli, Quiroga, Bombal, Borges, Cortázar, Donoso, Rulfo, Fuentes, Bolaño and others.

The class is conducted entirely in Spanish.

This course carries CASE AH Breadth of Inquiry and CASE GCC2  Global Civilization & Culture 2 distribution credit.
