HISP 3227/LAS 3227. The Hispanic Avant-Garde: Poetry and Politics

What do we mean by "avant-garde"? How was it manifested in the Hispanic world in the first half of the twentieth century? How did contemporaneous politics shape or become shaped by the avant-garde? How does this relate to our world today? Will focus on poets such as Aleixandre, Garcia Lorca, Borges, Neruda, Huidobro, Storni, Lange, Novo and Vallejo, while also considering a wide array of manifestos, literary journals, films and other art forms from Spain, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru, Mexico and Brazil. Taught in Spanish with some theoretical and historical readings in English.
