SPAN 6649 Haunting Modernity: The Fantastic Short Story in 19th Century Spain (Spring: 3 )
This course examines the fantastic short fiction of canonical nineteenth-century Spanish writers as reflective of turn-of-the-century socio-historical concerns, particularly as related to the struggle for modernity. Aside from examining the stories within their historical moment, we will place these works in dialogue with fantastic narratives from other periods and literary traditions, striving for a more complete appreciation for the evolution of the literary fantastic.
