20C Mexican Poetry

20th Century Mexican Poetry
*Three-week course, first session*

The purpose of this course is to provide a review of six Mexican poets who have shaped and influenced the tradition of poetry written today: José Juan Tablada, José Gorostiza, Xavier Villaurrutia, Octavio Paz, Jaime Sabines, and Enriqueta Ochoa. A sample of their most representative poems will be read in order to recognize their personal style, their poetics, and, if relevant, the group or movement to which they belong. A critical bibliography about the writers will also be provided. As a complement to the course, some videos on Mexican poets will be screened, where the authors talk about their work, and offer their own ethical and aesthetic views about their experience with poetry.
