HISP-S 332  The Hispanic World II   (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S331 or equivalent

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

This course explores the relationship between the individual,
Spanish society and the world at large in a number of representative
works of Spanish literature.  We will study selections from five
different literary genres: essay, short story, novel, poetry and
drama.

Readings include the novel SAN MANUEL BUENO, MARTIR by Miguel de
Unamuno, poetry by Federico García Lorca, Miguel Hernandez and
Gloria Fuertes, essays by Antonio Muñoz Molina, short stories by
Almudena Grandes, and a play by Paloma Pedrero.

The goals of the course are on the one hand to sharpen the literary
insight and widen the cultural horizon of the students and on the
other to improve their comprehension, speaking and writing abilities
in Spanish.  S332 will be taught in Spanish.  Class attendance is
mandatory.  Students will be evaluated on the basis of their
participation in class, a series of written assignments, and two
exams.
