SPAN 360 - One Hundred Years of Plenitude: Modern and Postmodern Hispanic Fiction

The rise of modern fiction produced a series of remarkable novels in Latin America and Spain throughout the 20th century and into the present. The course will focus primarily on the Latin American “Boom” from the 1960s onwards. We will also study the appearance and enduring presence of postmodernism in Hispanic fiction. The course refines the analysis of literary works from a variety of perspectives (historical, political, social, ethical, aesthetic, etc.) and provides a comprehensive view of the evolution of Hispanic narrative from the dawn of modernity to the present. It targets those students who enjoy literature and believe in the pleasure of the text. This course satisfies the Area 2 requirement for the Spanish major. Prerequisite(s): SPAN 307  or consent of the instructor. (4 Credits)
