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

As an introduction to the literatures of Spain and Spanish
America, in this course we will read short stories, a play, a novel
and poetry. The course is designed to help students develop tools
needed for more advanced study of Hispanic literatures through the
reading and analysis of selected literary texts. One of the key
aspects that students should take away from the course is an
appreciation of different genres as well as a reflection on the
concept of genre itself. The course will also highlight the
importance of the socio-historical context to literary works by
presenting texts from different historical periods.  It will also
introduce students to basic narratological, poetic, theatrical and
rhetorical terms used in the study of literature; these terms form
the bases of the “close reading” of texts. There will be 2 short
papers, one longer research paper, a midterm exam, and a final exam.
All work for the course is in Spanish. This course carries the
culture studies and arts and humanities distribution.
