  THEORY OF LITERATURE II

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2012-13

La Teoría de la Literatura es la disciplina científico-literaria y, por tanto, filológica, que tiene por objeto el estudio de los problemas generales que afectan a la Literatura, al texto y al hecho literarios. En este contexto, la asignatura de “Teoría de la Literatura II” ofrece al estudiante los conceptos teórico-literarios y crítico-literarios pertenecientes a las grandes escuelas del siglo XX; los conocimientos históricos y sistemático-conceptuales necesarios para llevar a cabo el análisis del lenguaje literario desde el punto de vista de la teoría del mismo, con la consiguiente capacidad de relacionar teoría y praxis literaria; y el conocimiento de las semejanzas y las diferencias entre las distintas clases de textos literarios (o géneros) y entre éstas y los textos no literarios. Por todo ello la asignatura de “Teoría de la Literatura II” constituye uno de los pilares básicos del Grado, al manifestarse desde un punto de vista histórico y sistemático-conceptual, por un lado, como reflexión teórica, general y abstracta de las manifestaciones literarias, y desde una perspectiva analítico-valorativa (crítico-literaria y comparatista), por otro, como el natural espacio de análisis científico-literario de las mismas.
