Course Description

This course has two primary goals: to teach students how to deal critically in Spanish with a variety of examples of of theater, poetry and narrative prose; and to introduce students to the broad literary and cultural movements of the period from the late eighteenth century to the twentieth: the enlightenment, romanticism, realism, the avant-garde, the Spanish civil war. For the most part, works are presented in chronological order, with background material regarding literary historical contexts provided by the instructor.

The emphasis of most classes, however, will be on critical reading, literal and aesthetic appreciation of the text. The class will be conducted in Spanish and most written work and testing is also carried out in Spanish.
