Over a 14-week period you will discuss three masterpieces of literature in Spanish.
At the outset you will be introduced to three texts and their authors together with some historical context.
Subsequently you will discuss the main topics, characters and symbols in each book over six 90-minute sessions – each two weeks apart, giving you time to read and digest your text.
We will support you in expressing your thoughts together with fellow students.
As well as learning to appreciate these works in their native language you will develop your Spanish language skills helping you express your thoughts and opinions and how to debate them with others.
The chosen texts for the next course cover Spain, Colombia and Argentina.
– La increíble y triste historia de la cándida Eréndida y su abuela desalmada, Gabriel García Márquez
– La casa de Bernarda Alba, Federico García Lorca
– Four tales (“La Continuidad de los Parques”, “La Casa Tomada”), Julio Cortázar
