HISP-S 328 Introduction to Hispanic Literature (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S280 or S310 or equivalent.

This course aims to familiarize students, through close reading,
with a number of literary texts, representative of different genres
(narrative fictions, theater, and poetry), from Spain and Spanish
America.  Readings will include Miguel de Unamuno’s short
story “NADA MENOS QUE TODO UN HOMBRE”, Gabriel Garcí Márquez’s novel
DEL AMOR Y OTROS DEMINOS, Federico García Lorca’s drama LA CASA DE
BERNARDA ALBA,  and a selection of poetry (romances, selected poems
of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, García Lorca,
Gabriela Mistral, Alfonsina Storni, Pablo Neruda, etc.)

The reading of the texts will be preceded by a discussion of the
importance of their historical, social and cultural contexts, and on
their specific genre characteristics.  The literary analysis will
bring out not only the meaning and message embedded in each work,
but also the devices (narratological, dramatic, rhetorical, etc.)
used in the fabric of the text.

Students will be evaluated on the basis of their active
participation in class (15% of the grade), one paper (15%), one
essay (25%) and two exams (45%).

Note:  For students who matriculated Fall 2009 or before, credit
given for only two of these:  S328, S331, S332, or S333.  If you
have already taken two of these three courses, S331, S332, S333,
then you need not take S328.  Have questions?   Call the department
