OVERVIEW

The course offers a literary, cultural, social and historical panorama of XVI and XVII century Spain in order to provide students with the tools to understand and appreciate the authors and main works of such an important period, known as “Siglo de Oro”.

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

By attending the course and individual study, the students will learn about the evolution of the history of Spanish literature from the XVI to the XVII century and the historical-political and cultural context in which they developed. They will be able to relate the great European cultural currents with the works and authors studied, also establishing links between them.

The students will be able to read, paraphrase and translate the literary texts proposed in Spanish and contextualize a literary work. They will also be able to comment and analyze a literary text of the time studied, identifying literary stylistic features, topoi and figures of speech.

TEACHING METHODS

36 hours of lectures with the help of multimedia material.

Before each lesson, the literary texts that will be commented on will be made available on Aulaweb, so that students can have them with them in class. In Aulaweb the teacher is going to upload also support material, various types of in-depth analyzes and suggestions for those students who wish to autonomously expand the study of a specific theme.

The teacher will also use Aulaweb to communicate with students, who are therefore invited to register on the course page on this platform.
