HISP-S 419 Modern Spanish Prose Fiction (3 credits) Literature
Prerequisite: S331 and S332 or equivalent
In this course we will read 20th-century novels by male and female
Spanish authors from Miguel de Unamuno to contemporary writers. The
focus will be on narrative technique, social problems, and the
cultural construction of gender. The course will also incorporate a
few recent Spanish films.
The key component of the course is daily class discussion of various
aspects of each novel. One short paper (1-2 pages) on each novel and
one longer final paper (6-8 pages) will complement the oral analysis
of the texts. There will also be a final exam. The course is taught
in Spanish; Spanish is the language of class discussion and of all
written work for the course.
