Who is Afraid of Poetry?

Who is Afraid of Poetry?
In this course we will read a selection of poetry by contemporary Spanish and Latin American authors (e.g., Lorca, GarcĂ­a Montero, Rossetti, as well as Eielson, Paz, Pizarnik). The main goal of the discussions will be the understanding of poetry in conjunction with contemporary critical ideas. We will learn how to criticize poetic texts using the main theoretical currents of our time such as structuralism, post-structuralism, feminism, and cultural studies. (Senior majors with at least two Spanish courses numbered 0350 or above, or by waiver) 3 hrs. lect./disc. sem.
