Course objectives: This course will introduce you to authors representative of Spanish and Latin American literatures. The semester will be divided into four unequal parts, each part dedicated to the study of a different genre. This will allow you to acquire a good understanding of poetry, short stories, novels and theater [we will not be covering essays]. The emphasis will be on criticism or analysis of the works, although we will not ignore literary history. Requirements: attendance and participation: you should be in class for every meeting with the assignment read beforehand, and should participate actively in the class discussions [en español, por favor]. If you miss more than 6 classes I reserve the right to automatically fail you, and you should drop the class. homework: The readings and exercises should be completed prior to arrival in class. You may have a number of different assignments for each reading, including but not limited to the exercises following each selection. These assignments are designed to guide your reading and facilitate your comprehension. This class is not “story time” nor am I going to just give you my interpretation of the text and expect you to memorize it. exams: There will be 2 in-class exams: one on short stories and one on poetry. The final exam will be basically on the novel and theater, but may touch upon other texts covered throughout the semester.
