Spanish Literature Club

The Spanish Literature Club at Queen Margaret’s is aimed at Sixth Form girls currently studying Spanish who are keen to develop their knowledge of Spanish literature and art. The club, which meets weekly, explores literature ranging from the writers of the Golden Age (Cervantes), the Generation of 1898 (Antonio Machado) and the Generation of 1927 (Federico García Lorca). Key themes and literary techniques are discussed and girls are encouraged to do independent research on the authors.

In addition to developing girls’ general vocabulary and grammatical awareness, the club broadens girls’ knowledge and understanding of the changes in Spanish society and the historical context of the literature being studied.

It is an excellent opportunity to broaden knowledge on the cultural topics: this year the girls studied the work and life of Federico Carcia Lorca the Pedro Almodovar and his films. The club is particularly popular with girls who are interested in pursuing Spanish at degree level but not exclusively.
