HISP-C 450 Catalan Literature  (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  C400 or consent of the instructor

Taught in Catalan, this course will survey the panorama of Catalan
literature from the eighteen thirties to the present moment.
Readings will exemplify all important periods (Renaixença,
modernisme, noucentisme, avantguarda, postguerra, postmodernitat). A
course pack will be made available to the students. We will read
selections of the most significant authors and two novels (LA PLAÇA
DEL DIAMANT by Mercè Rodoreda, and LA PELL FREDA by Albert Sánchez-
Pinyol) in their entirety. Some grammar review will be introduced as
needed.

There will be two partial exams and a final. Graduate students will
present a term paper at semester's end.  For undergraduates this
course can fulfill the elective 300/400 level requirement for the
Spanish major.
