Major LA Poets

Major Latin American Poets
This course will concentrate on five major Latin American poets of the 20th-C: Jorge Luis Borges (Argentina, 1899-1986), Vicente Huidobro (Chile, 1893-1948), C├ęsar Vallejo (Peru, 1892-1938), Pablo Neruda (Chile, 1904-1973), and Octavio Paz (Mexico, 1914-1998). These poets have had remarkable impact on younger generations. Their work has become foundational in their respective countries and internationally (Neruda and Paz were awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature). Emphasis will be given to textual analysis of the poems and a review of the poetics of each of the authors. (1 unit).
