HISP-S 328 Introduction to Hispanic Literature (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S280 or S310 or equivalent.

This course provides the critical tools needed for the advanced
study of Hispanic literatures through close readings of selected
literary works from Spain and Spanish America. We will explore
literary techniques found three different genres—prose, poetry and
theater—and will become familiar with the fundamental vocabulary and
concepts of literary criticism. The course will also emphasize the
importance of socio-historical context for literary analysis,
insofar as literary works are influenced by the historical moment in
which they are written or because, in many cases, writers seek to
transcend the limits of the time and place in which they write.
Readings include works by Sor Juana, Quevedo, Cervantes, Bécquer,
Darío, Agustini, Paz, Usigli, Echeverría, Quiroga, Borges, Cortázar,
Rulfo, Fuentes and Bolaño.  This course carries the culture studies
and arts and humanities distribution.

Note:  For students who matriculated fall 2009 or before, credit
given for only two of these:  S328, S331, S332, or S333.  If you
have already taken two of these three courses, S331, S332, S333,
then DO NOT take S328.  Have questions?  Call the department at
