SPW 6216: Spanish Prose Fiction of the Golden Age


Credits: 3                    Grading Scheme: Letter

     

The literary landscape of rampant generic diversity, before novelistic forms solidified. While shepherds in rarified meadows disputed fine points of neo-Platonic love, thieves, prostitutes, and picaros inveighed their way into carriages, salons, and homes of aristocracy. Fiction provided an outlet for political satire, religious allegory, utopian dreaming, and sheer escapism. Readings and lectures in Spanish.
