SPAN 463: Spanish Literature from Romanticism to Postmodernism (3 credits)


This is a survey course of the literature and cultural contexts of Spain from the 19th to the 21st century. It includes the literary production of Benito Pérez Galdós, Emilia Pardo Bazán, Leopoldo Alas “Clarín”, Miguel de Unamuno, Pío Baroja, Antonio Machado, Federico García Lorca, Camilo José Cela, Ramón J. Sender, Carmen Martín Gaite, and Arturo Pérez Reverte.

Although SPAN 200 is a prerequisite for this course we accept students who did not complete that course but whose proficiency corresponds to the advanced level. If you have any questions concerning your level of Spanish and/or your placement, please, contact one of our faculty members and request an override.

SPAN 463 is taught entirely in Spanish and students are required to submit substantial essays in Spanish in the course of the term. In order to take full advantage of this course we encourage our students to take SPAN 306 and SPAN 334 before enrolling in SPAN 463.
