Romantic Poetry 19th-c. Brazil
References to sound, voice, and music abound in Brazilian Romanticism. However, the sonic aspect of poetry reading is often forgotten when critics analyze Romantic aesthetics. In this course we will focus on how Romantics represented sound production and vocal performances and on their indications of how poems should be read aloud. Our objective is to reconstruct the Romantic scene of poetry reading and listening in order to create our own vocal performances of the poems. We will draw theoretical background from diverse writers, such as Gregory Nagy, Adriana Cavarero, and Mladen Dolar. Poets analyzed may include (but are not limited to) Castro Alves, Casimiro de Abreu, and Raimundo Correia. (0300-level course or higher) 3 hrs. lect./disc.
