Reading Spain in Federico García Lorca's Life and Works

SPA 323

Info tab content
This course focuses on one of the most renowned and influential Spanish poets of the 20th century - Federico García Lorca. We will examine Lorca's vast corpus of poems and plays to see how they combine experimental aesthetics and popular traditions. We will also study the readings and re-readings of "Lorca" as both an author and a mythical figure, standing for freedom, the defeated Spanish Republic, the historical avant-garde poetry, and gender politics. Among other topics to be discussed are flamenco culture, popular music, surrealism, the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the Spanish Civil War, historical memory and the Francoist mass graves.
