This course explores one of the most basic, yet complicated concepts of story-telling: re-telling. Using various literary theories--from Renaissance imitatio to the neobarroco--this class examines two (or more) texts in tandem to better appreciate various interpretations of some of the foundational figures, texts, and myths of the Hispanic literary tradition. A substantial final research project will be required. Conducted in Spanish.
Any two literature or culture courses. Limited to juniors and seniors. Priority will be given to majors, then minors. (Not offered in 2014-15.)
