HISP-S 450    DON QUIJOTE   (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S331 and S332 or equivalent

This course will introduce the students to the richness and
complexities of Miguel de Cervantes's fictional world with a close
reading of DON QUIJOTE.  We will explore such issues as the
relationship between this masterpiece, the Spanish Golden Age, and
the human condition; self-consciousness in narrative; the reasons
why many critics consider the work the first modern novel; the
critical reception of the work; and the modernity of the text.
Heavy emphasis will be placed on class participation.
