Description

The tools and strategies used in analyzing Hispanic texts and then helps students put these to use as they hone their analytical and interpretative skills. Literature is a cultural realm in which words are used to create powerful effects. On the one hand, the study of Hispanic literature allows one to further refine one's understanding of the Spanish language and to expand one's expressive capabilities in the language. On the other hand, learning to decode rhetoric and style, in any language, is a process that helps us to appreciate and enjoy literature, to better understand the culture that produces that literature, and to comprehend the dynamics at play in all types of verbal expression, whether a poem, a novel, a newspaper article, a legal document, an advertising or marketing campaign, or a political speech. This cognate brings together linguistic, interpretative, and analytical skills.
