SPAN 386
301 |Francisco Fernández |MWF 12-1pm |WILL 316

This course examines how different Spanish authors and filmmakers portray children and young adults in their narratives. We study works by Ana María Matute, Miguel Delibes, Elvira Lindo, Luis Buñuel, Carlos Saura, and Victor Erice among others. Our analysis focuses on both the way children and young adults are presented in relation to their social and family environment, and the different dramatic and literary strategies used by these authors and filmmakers in the construction of their characters.
