HISP-S 331 The Hispanic World I   (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S310 or S311 or equivalent

Credit given for only two of the following:  S331, S332, S333

This course will provide you with a thorough introduction to the
concepts of literary analysis and the poetics of different genres,
while at the same familiarizing you with Latin American literature
and culture. We will read an excellent selection of nineteenth- and
twentieth-century Spanish-American texts in different genres,
including poetry, short stories, essays, a short novel, and a drama.
This class is an excellent preparation for upper-level literature
classes; we focus on reading texts closely, asking critical and
informed questions of them, and considering their cultural,
political, and historical contexts. The final grade will be based on
class preparation (reading, attendance, quizzes, homework
assignments), two short papers (each focusing on a different genre),
and a midterm and final exam.
