SP 565 - Contemp Spanish-American Fiction: Cien anos de soledad and La casa de los espiritus
 
(3 cr.) This course pairs two of the most highly acclaimed and frequently discussed novels of the second half of 20th-century Spanish America: Cien anos de soledad by Nobel Prize winner, Colombian, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1967) and La casa de los espíritus by Chilean, Isabel Allende (1982). Students read and discuss both novels in depth in terms of their portrayals of Spanish-American history and culture and analyze the relationship between the two novels to develop an understanding of Allende's challenge to Marquez's cosmovision and sense of telos.
