Content
In the last decade, there has been a proliferation of texts (narrative, poetic, essayistic) that stage and problematize life in the countryside', a field that would have become 'empty' (del Molino) after the massive migrations to the city brought about by the Franco regime. The course aims to put this recent trend in Spanish literature into perspective by presenting a historical overview which, through the analysis of some key texts, highlights the evolution of the representation of Spanish rural life and the literary implications of such a thematic choice.
