Hispanic Literatures in Translation: Spanish-American Literature
Dr. Skirius is very knowledgeable about the subject matter, often adding relevent background information sothe students get a better understanding of the context in which the texts were written. He introduced me to some authors i never would have read if i wasn't in this class, and who have become some of my personal favorites. The format of the class is boring, he sits at the front and goes over the readings. However, it is not necessary to go to every class. It's easy enough to get and A as long as you do the readings and are able to write about the themes he provides.
