Writing Short Fiction in Spanish
SPAN 227
Spring 2016
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: CGST 227

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of writing short fiction in Spanish, and will enhance their knowledge of the Spanish language through the reading of great short stories that will inform students' own writing and the development of a personal style. We will examine essential features of fiction (methods of constructing narrative tension, climax, ambiguity, character, different kinds of autobiographies and descriptions, dialogues, monologues, etcetera,) as well as various fictional styles through the texts of masters such as Julio Ramón Ribeyro, Cristina Sánchez Andrade, Valle-Inclán, Julio Cortázar, Jorge Luis Borges, among others.
