New Course Supplement 2016


SPAN 43.04 The Best Hispanic Poetry: Emotion for the Contemporary Reader

Sentiment and subjectivity establish themselves as pillars of modern poetry. In order to overcome its restrictive communicative function and prevail over time, language dwells in a figurative realm with the assistance of a metaphorical leap. This course will concentrate on the study of some of the finest poems and poets of the Spanish language. Starting with some early examples of the Castilian lyrical tradition (Jorge Manrique, Garcilaso de la Vega, Luis de Góngora or Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz), we will take pleasure in reading and study major canonical figures like Rubén Darío, Gabriela Mistral, Federico García Lorca, and Pablo Neruda. Particular attention will be paid to contemporary manifestations of poetry that inhabit the territory of popular songs.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
