This subject is aimed at enabling students to substantially advance in their Spanish language and cultural learning. The main focus of this subject will be the linguistic analysis of Spanish texts as presented in the main literary genres which have shaped the Spanish and Latin American cultural and literary universe. Students will learn advanced Spanish language structures such as the use of complex verbal forms (subjunctive mode), and complex sentence structures through textual analysis, essay writing, oral presentation and in-class discussion. Students will learn how to write research papers in Spanish and to do close readings of a variety of genres (such as narratives, theatre, poetry, essay and film). In this subject, students will improve their oral skills by presenting and defending short critical essays in class. Furthermore, their advanced knowledge of the Spanish language will be promoted by studying, analysing and understanding sophisticated Spanish and Latin American canonical and non-canonical texts, as presented in major literary movements and periods.
