Cervantes: Novelas ejemplares
Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) is considered by many critics as the creator of the modern prose novel. This claim is based not only on Don Quixote, but also on a collection of twelve short pieces, the Novelas ejemplares, published in 1613. In this course we will read and discuss these stories, approaching them from a literary and cultural perspective. This course will be taught in Spanish. (At least two Spanish courses at the 0300 level or above, or by waiver).
