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

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

This course will explore the main aspects of love ‒ in Spanish
literature.  The readings will include prose works (Unamuno’s SAN
MANUEL BUENO, MARTIR and NADA MENOS QUE TODO UN HOMBRE),drama
(García Lorca’s LA CASA DE BERNARDA ALBA), poetry (romances,
selected poems of Garcilaso de la Vega, Quevedo, Bécquer, Machado,
etc.), and essays (selections from Ortega y Gasset’s ESTUDIOS SOBRE
EL AMOR).  In our close reading of these works we will focus on the
historical and cultural circumstances in which they were written, on
the social context, the ethical values, and gender issues they
reflect, on the literary trends and genres to which they belong, and
on other pertinent questions of literary theory and interpretation.

The specific aim of the course is, on the one hand, to sharpen the
literary insight and widen the cultural horizons of the students
and, on the other, to improve their speaking and writing abilities
in Spanish.  Students will be evaluated on the basis of their
participation in class, several written assignments, and two exams.
