|(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
espÃritus 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 MÃ¡rquez's cosmovision
and sense of telos. Prerequisites: three
literature courses taught in Spanish or acceptance
into the MAT program in Spanish.
