The second semester of a two-semester survey on the literatures of
the Portuguese-speaking world. In this course, we will examine the
concept of “Realism” – its adoption, transformation, and rejection –
by late nineteenth and twentieth-century Lusophone authors. We will
read prose, poetry, and essays from Lusophone Africa, Brazil, and
Portugal. All students will write a midterm and final exam.
Undergraduate students will write a short paper (6-8pp) and graduate
students will write a longer research paper (10-12pp) on a topic to
be approved by the instructor.
