SPN 463 Spanish American Poetry from Modernism to the 21st Century
4 hours; 4 credits
The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to a panoramic survey of Spanish American poetry. We will begin with the irruption of “modernismo,” an innovative trend through which poets such as Rubén Darío, José Martí, and Manuel Gutiérrez Nájera imported European models and renovated Spanish American poetry. The course will then study the various Spanish American avant-garde movements to conclude with the most important poetic projects of the second half of the 20th century, including the works of Octavio Paz, Nicanor Parra, José Lezama Lima, and Jorge Luis Borges.
