19th and 20th century Spanish Literature and History
The course aims to provide a general overlook on the main critical and historical methodologies to deal with the History of Spanish Literature, leading students to experience deep and aware ways of reading the texts of the Spanish canon.
This course is meant to provide students with an overview of the literary and cultural movements that swept Spain from the Bourbon Restoration (1875) to the end of Franco’s regime (1975). Considering the very close connections between political and literary history in 20th century Spain, part of the course will be on the main historical events of this period: the Cuban War of Independence, The Spanish Civil War and the Franco period.
In the first semester (36 hours) all the topics of the course will be presented (online course on Teams). In the second semester, (18 hours) we will delve into selected themes through reading excerpts and watching film clips.
Written final exam.
