as it has been practised in Spain from 1898 to the Second
Republic. Candidates will have the opportunity to study in
detail individual writers who have made their mark in this
important genre, examining the ideological tenets and
aesthetics that characterised their individual styles, and
through them the contemporary debates on national identity,
modernist poetics, and the history of ideas in general which
inform the culture of the period. Details of the authors and
works prescribed will be available in the Modern Languages
Office, 41 Wellington Square, at the beginning of Michaelmas
Full Term in the academic year of the examination. Each
portfolio will consist of two essays, only one of which may
