This course uses Confieso que he vivido, the memoirs of Chilean Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), as a literary map the twentieth century. Even though Neruda is known primarily as a poet, this is not just a course about poetry. The multidisciplinary approach of this class will intertwine analysis of Neruda’s major poems with texts produced by those around him. We’ll study the paintings of Pablo Picasso and Diego Rivera, the poems Federico García Lorca, the films Il postino and Machuca the protest songs of Violeta Parra and stories, essays and poems by Latin America’s four other Nobel Prize winners, Gabriela Mistral, Miguel Angel Asturias, Gabriel García Márquez and Octavio Paz. We will also examine some of the people, places and ideas most significant to all of XX century Latin American literature: Walt Whitman, modernismo, the avant-garde, Vicente Huidobro, César Vallejo, Freud, the Spanish Civil War, Paris in the 1920s, Marx, Communism, Trotsky, Buenos Aires in the 30s, Mexican muralism, the Cuban Revolution, Che Guevara, American interventionism, Chile’s coup of 1973 and the Latin American “New Song.” This course will be of special interest to those who have already completed or are considering our study abroad program in Santiago, Chile.

Course Objectives: To help students develop an understanding of and appreciation for some of the main intellectual currents of XX century Spanish American literature. To introduce students to some fundamental concepts of literary criticism and to allow them to refine their skills in the analysis of texts. To acquaint students with basic research techniques when appropriate and possible. To develop further the five basic language skills in Spanish with an emphasis on reading and speaking. Graded assignments in this course will include traditional tests and reading quizzes (for content) as well as a formal analysis of a Neruda poem not discussed in class and a final paper. Your participation grade will reflect your linguistic and analytical progress. Other Required Readings: Although we will not always have a chance to discuss all of these in detail in class, required readings will be assigned and information from them will appear on the tests. These essays have been selected because they will help you understand ideas and movements that run through the texts we will analyze in class. Presentations: At times our class conversations will be lead by a student. These presentations will be the result of the student analyzing a text or idea, writing at least 3 open ended and provocative discussion questions for the class, presenting the text or idea to the class along with some extra information culled from research and directing the class's discussion of that topic. Remember that good presentations contain information that is insightful and out of the ordinary such as anecdotes about the writer’s life or particularly creative (yet believable) interpretations of their work. Be sure to make connections between your texts and others we have read or the movements we are studying. It is important that the class understand any terminology or unusual vocabulary that you might use in the presentation - tell us or write it on the board. Good presentations teach us new things or ways of looking at things. Be selective - make choices about what to present and what to leave out. Oh, and, we all like visuals. Bad presentations are mumbled, read from notes, contain little new or interesting or are not understood by the class (or the presenter). Present with confidence. Do not believe all that you read on the web or in the wikipedia. Do not give us bad information.

Notes: 1) Daily preparation must be thorough. You must come to class PREPARED AND WILLING TO SHOW IT through ACTIVE participation. Preparing for class means spending an appropriate amount of time reading the day’s assignment and doing any written work. After this preparation, you will be ready to discuss the readings in class with the professor and your peers. Expect a participation grade of B- to C if you are prepared but passive. You are learning to formulate, express and debate your opinions and interpretations of art, literature, music and ideas in this class. 2) Have access to a good English/Spanish dictionary. I like Harper Collins and Oxford. You can also try wordreference.com. Don't embarrass yourself with other internet translators. 3) “Late is rude...” -President George W. Bush “On time means two minutes early...” -Coach Joe Paterno 4) It is your responsibility to notify your instructor as soon as possible, preferably beforehand, if you have an excused absence. Work missed due to excused absences will be accepted within two days of the absence. Work missed due to unexcused absences cannot be made up. 5) The Instructor reserves the right to change this syllabus. 6) Students with disabilities who need academic accommodation should contact Disability Services (x2322). After this meeting, the student should meet with me. This process needs to happen early in the term. The Office of Academic Assistance, a helpful resource for many freshmen, is located on the ground floor of the library (x2110). Attendance: All students are expected to attend every class session. A student who has more than two unexcused absences during the term will be dropped from the class roster and assigned a grade of “F.”

This is a tentative schedule of topics and readings. Required and suggested readings will be assigned daily in class. 3/3
