Cervantes's Novelas Ejemplares: An Anniversary Reading [Cancelled]
Fall 2013 
To mark the four hundredth anniversary of the publication of Cervantes's second masterpiece and commemorate the seven hundredth of Boccaccio's birth, this seminar consists of a close reading of each of the twelve novellas (one per week) in the wake of the Decameron. The course considers Cervantes's experiments with various Renaissance narrative traditions, such as the Byzantine romance and the picaresque novel, as well as the relationship of each novella to Don Quijote and The Trials of Persiles and Sigismunda.

In Spanish.
