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

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

The objective of this course is to provide you with a thorough
introduction to the concepts of literary analysis and to the
workings of different genres. This is why we will read a variety of
different texts, including poetry, short stories, essays, a play,
and a short novel. At the same time the course also aims to
familiarize you with Latin American culture. We read a rich
selection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Spanish-American
writers. This class is an excellent preparation for upper-level
literature and culture courses; 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 (primarily reading, attendance,
quizzes, and homework exercises), three short papers (two written in
class, and one written at home), and a midterm and final exam.
