HISP-S331 The Hispanic World I (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S310 or equivalent.
Credit given for only two of the following: S331, S332, S333
This course is an introduction to the reading of literature in
Spanish, with a focus on Hispanic American poetry, drama and novel.
In this course, we will work on becoming more imaginative readers
of literature by developing sensitivity to textual detail. Students
taking this course will practice the interpretive skills they will
need in upper level literature courses, as they work on developing
greater reading skill in Spanish. Readings will include poems by
Borges, López Velarde, Agustini and Vallejo, a work of drama by
Usigli, and short fiction and novellas by Ferré, Borges, Cortázar,
Poniatowska, García Márquez and Ponte. Course work includes two
exams and three short essays, among other assignments.
