Course Description

This course brings together Spanish American literary history and social history. It surveys the development of Spanish American literature from the days of the Spanish Conquest to 1900. In the early weeks of the course, most of the readings are historical documents having to do with the conquest of the Amerindian populations. Later more literary readings reflect the intellectual life in Spain's American colonies and the ferment leading up to the wars of Independence. Romanticism and modernismo are covered in the last weeks.
