Introduction To Spanish Literature/Introducción A La Literatura Española

Abstract

Introduction To Spanish Literature course description:
This course serves as a panoramic introduction to Spanish literature, from the Middle Ages through the present. Students will read and analyze, in oral and written form, a variety of texts including poetry, narrative, drama, film and digital texts, always keeping in mind the historical and cultural contexts in which each is produced. In both oral and written work, a particular emphasis will be placed on literary analysis. Through essays and class discussion, it is expected that the student will develop the habits and skills of an attentive and scholarly reader of literature. In addition to engaging in traditional critical analysis, students will develop a digital project that will consist of a visual-textual chronology of Spanish letters.
