This module will explore changes and tensions in Spanish culture, society, literature and art from the evolution of literary realism and naturalism to the beginning of the historical avant-gardes and the First World War. Through varied materials (poems, short stories, novels, plays, paintings, etc.) students will discuss the transformations of the role of the artist and the intellectual, the modernist 'tradition of the new' and the aesthetical currents of the era. The module will focus on specific literary examples (the novels by Miguel de Unamuno and Jose Martinez Ruis 'Azorin') as well as the cultural and artistic life of the times through the analysis of literary magazines.
