S419 Modern Spanish Prose Fiction (3 credits) LITERATURE
Prerequisite: S331 and S332

Spanish authors from Miguel de Unamuno to contemporary writers. The
focus will be on narrative technique, social problems, and the
cultural construction of gender. If possible, we will also see a few
recent Spanish films.
The key component of the course is daily class discussion of various
