Hispanic Literature of the Western Hemisphere
This course provides a survey of major authors and literary works originating in Hispanic culture, and examines their global impact. The selection of authors and texts (in translation, when appropriate) introduces students to diverse geopgraphical, political, and cultural climates that exist within the broader Hispanic community -- a community that includes Central and South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and portions of the U.S. In addition, course texts inform students of the historical background, extensive influence, and continuing impact of Spanish colonization of the western Hemisphere.
