SPN 325L Introduction to Spanish American Literature since Modernism (2nd summer session).
This course offers a survey of major literary trends and writers of Spanish American literature since Modernism within a cultural context. While the course uses a selection of works that are recognized by critics, specialists, and readers as the most outstanding, it will also include other less-known authors that are equally notable in order to reflect the diversity of Spanish American literature. Most works will be read in their entirety; however, an occasional work may be abridged. The course will include the four genres and will require both textual and thematic analyses of the works so as to prepare students for more advanced courses.
This course is designed to help you
· read and understand literary texts within an historical and cultural context;
· foster and develop an individual critical points of view;
· analyze and compare different literary texts; and
· write short responses and essays that focus on text and thematic analysis.
