    This course offers a broad introduction to the study of 20th century Peruvian literature. The course addresses basic questions about the nature of prose narrative and poetry, the interrelated activities of reading, writing, and interpretation. We will explore the definition and characteristics of the term "story", "identity" or "country", analyze the role stories play in our cultural and political lives, and explore how the interpretation of a literary text goes beyond a merely subjective opinion by more deeply understanding narrative technique, point of view, and character development.

    - Read literary and cultural texts with discernment and comprehension and with an understanding of their conventions;
    - Draw on relevant cultural and/or historical information to situate texts within their cultural, political, and historical contexts;

    - Write focused, analytical essays in clear, grammatical Spanish prose;
