Garcia Lorca and His World|
Fall 2006 not offered
This course is a study of the Spanish avant-garde movement through the poetry and plays of one of Europe's most celebrated authors. Attention will be given to the popular culture to which Lorca gave artistic form and to the problem of surrealism in the visual arts (Joan Miro, Salvador Dali, Luis Bunuel). Readings will include the poetry and plays of contemporary writers who, with Lorca, constitute the so-called generacion del 27.
