Welcome to the Library Resource Guide for SUBJECTIVITY, WRITING AND SOCIAL SPACE IN SPANISH LITERARY MODERNITY (1770-1902)
SP0129 _02 (Hispanic Studies)
This course is an introduction to modern Spanish literature through the analysis of (i) the beginning and consolidation of a new concept of subjectivity, (ii) the opening up of a new social space, and (iii) the co-existence of a multiplicity of literary styles and movements. These three crucial aspects of Modernity will be explored as overlapping in a chronological sequence spanning from the late eighteenth century to the first two decades of the twentieth century. Some of the expressions of the new subjectivity will be the sensitive soul, the rebellious character, the bourgeois, the civil servant, the angel of the house, the feminist and the decadent hero as depicted in key neoclassic, romantic, realist and modernist texts.
