LITE-1100 Introduction to Literary Studies

This course focuses on an approach to the main questions posed by literature, such as its origin, its relationship with reality, with the receiver, with other fields of human experience, its transcendence, etc. This brings students into contact with literary text by means of the analysis of aspects such as genre, poetic and narrative resources (versification, rhetorical figures, composition, time, place, action, narrator, construction and presentation of characters). With the tools provided, hypotheses are formulated and discussed keeping the connotational, multi-faceted and historic nature of poetic language in perspective.
