This part of the 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 grades can be
found at: https://e-guia.ull.es/filologia/query.php?codigo=259092205.
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.
