Modernos . Prentice Hall, 1972.supplemented with photocopies of other selections. Cela, Camilio Jos, La familia de Pascual Duarte Blackwell & Larson, Gua bsica de la crtica literaria y el trabajo de investigacin . Thomson-Heinle, 2007. I. COURSE DESCRIPTION: SPA 3382 is a survey course, designed to give you an overview of Spanish literature since the 18 th century. We will be reading and examining essays, short stories, dramas, poems, and excerpts from novels, all written by "big names" in Spanish literature. II. COURSE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: By the time the semester ends, I hope you will have developed a broad framework in which you can discuss Spain's literary production for the last three centuries. You should have become familiar with the principal literary movements, major writers, and their works since 1700. Your skills in reading and analyzing literature and your ability to understand and communicate in Spanish should have improved in the process. You should have also developed an ability to recognize characteristics of these literary movements in works which we do not examine in class so that you may use these concepts elsewhere in your academic career. III. COURSE REQUIREMENTS: A. PREREQUISITES: I assume that you have taken SPA SPA 3300, or an equivalent course, which introduced you to the principles of literary analysis and paper writing. I am assuming that you have had some exposure to reading literature in Spanish. If we travel into "totally uncharted waters" and you need further explanation, please tell me so that we can "consult the navigational charts" before continuing. B. ATTENDANCE: The Modern Foreign Language Department requires that you attend at least 80% of the classes to receive credit for this course. If you have more than 9 absences , excused or unexcused, you will receive an F in the course. Class attendance is important, because, as you have already discovered, there is no substitute for speaking and hearing Spanish to improve your own communication skills. You may ONLY make up work missed for an excused absence (i.e., illness verified with a doctor's or Student Health Center's note, a family emergency, or ac school-sponsored event about which you have informed me prior to the absence). Call or family emergency, or ac school-sponsored event about which you have informed me prior to the absence)....
