Syllabus
Prerequisites: No previous knowledge needed. During classes al text will be read in Spanish (hat is, its original version) and immediately translated. Students are allowed to choose according to their skills whether they prefer the original text or a translation into Italian (or English, should this apply for foreign students)
Target skills and knowledge: The aim of the course is to transmit a deep insight about the historical and literary evolution of Spain in the XIX Century, as well as an iterpretative tool which is meant to be useful in order to approach the primary literature inserted in the bibliography. The main onjective is the acquisition of a well-established capability of authonomous analysis of the texts.
Examination methods: Oral exam.
Assessment criteria: Students will be assessed mainly on the syllabus of the course (primary texts, contextualization of each in its historical and literary period), with a particoular interest towards the elaboration of intertextual connections and the capability of establishing links between the subjects given during the course.
Non-attending students are strongly recommended not to work on other students' notes, as their exams is specifically conceived as a different set of questions.
ALL STUDENTS please note that, unless differently indicated by the professor, all texts are to be read INTEGRALLY and never in reduced or simplified editions.

- La Generación del ’98 and finisecular literature
- Modernism and poets of the Generación del '27
