  • In principle, the subject covers the twentieth century, especially the so-called generation of 27 (or poetic group of 1927), Francoism and Contemporary literature. The subject is a key complement with the different electives offered in the Bc. and Mgr. Curricula, so that the teacher, considering the elective subjects chosen by the present students, focuses his attention on those areas not covered by the subjects of free choice. After some first classes in which this historical map is exposed, the professor will focus on the area that he considers necessary. Fundamental in this subject is the interpretation of texts by students. Every week texts are analyzed and at the end of the semester the students must exhibit a quality work. Chapters and keywords: the 27, franquismo, fascismo, falangismo, tremendismo, realismo social, poesía de los 50, novísimos, otra sentimentalidad, poesía de la experiencia, narrativa contemporánea.
