Course Description

Prerequisite:  S280 or Consent of the Department

This course offers an introduction to the literary analysis and interpretation of texts from Spain and Latin America, including narrative, poetry, theater, and graphic novels. The course is organized thematically, and it focuses on two main issues: literary representations of historical processes, and the relation between literature and politics. Throughout the semester we will be reading Isabel Allende’s La casa de los espíritus, in addition to other texts, and we will pay particular attention to the historical context that informs the novel. The course is designed to help students develop their skills in literary analysis, their critical thinking, and their writing and speaking abilities in Spanish. It also allows students to expand their knowledge of award-wining authors and literary theory. Class will be conducted entirely in Spanish.

This course carries CASE A&H and CASE GCC2 distribution credit.
