S331 The Hispanic World I (3 credits)
P: S310 or S311 or equivalent

The aim is to explore the Hispanic world in the Americas, through four
tests:
"Ficciones" (1944-49), essay-like short-stories by Jorge Luis Borges
(Argentina); "Canto general" (1950), the great verse epic of the American
continent by Pablo Neruda (chile); "Pedro Páramo" (1955), a novel
about rural Mexico by Juan Rulfo (Mexico); and "Papeles de Pandora" (1976),
'papers' and writing of various kinds by Rosario Ferré (Puerto Rico).
These are chosen for their strength, differences in genre and the space and
time that they embody.  Credit given for only two of the following: S331,
S332, S333

This section meets with the Honors Section of HISP S331.
