INGLESA Y ALEMANA
Fundamentos de la Literatura Norteamericana
|This course is designed
to introduce students to American literature, ranging from the 17th century
to late 19th century. We will examine particular currents of thought and feeling of different authors
that have led to the formation of the modern sensibility, recognizing that our contemporary view
of the world has developed from earlier perspectives that must be understood if our culture is to thrive.
Class discussions focus on issues and questions that may be raised during the examination in relation
to the assigned texts. Students are encouraged to attend classes and to use the bibliographic resources
at the Central Library. Further information on the teaching guide for this subject, please visit https://www.ull.es/apps/guias/guias/view_guide/25819/.
As an additional note, students should check the English Department's “Announcement for Lectures”
for a list of lectures given by visiting scholars concerning this field of study.
